Alhambra Hot Water Heater Installation and Repair

Your day in Alhambra may send you commuting into Phoenix, or over to Grand Canyon University for an early class, or over to Washington Park for some exercise. But what if your day can’t get started because you’ve lost hot water? That cold shower may be a no-go and breakfast clean-up may be tough without the convenience of warm water.

If you want your problem fixed professionally, quickly and without unnecessary fees it’s time to contact Rooter & Plumbing Service covering Alhambra and the greater Phoenix area.  Your problem may require the installation of a new tank or it may just require a simple replacement to get your hot water flowing again.  Let us inspect your water heater and your pipes to quickly diagnose and fix the problem.

What Not to Do If You Have a Hot Water Heater Issue in Alhambra

The sudden loss of hot water can leave you scrambling, especially if you’ve got an unhappy family waiting in line for the shower. It’s easy to overreact or make a rash decision, but there are a few things you should avoid once you know there’s an issue:

  • Don’t automatically assume you need a new water heater. Don’t order a new water heater first thing. Your problem may be fixed by a low-cost repair and your water heater may have years of life left in it.
  • Don’t trust all plumbers. If plumbers suggest getting a new water heater without doing a thorough inspection, they may just be looking to make a big sale. Simply replacing a part may not make as much money for the plumber, but if that’s all the job requires, that’s all we’ll do.
  • Don’t try to fix things yourself. Water Heaters use electricity and sometimes the flow of gas. These can be dangerous elements if you don’t know what you’re doing. You may also open up a pipe and not be able to keep it from leaking afterward. You can check your breaker box to make sure a breaker hasn’t flipped. And for someone with knowledge of pilot lights you may be able to relight it yourself, but if you don’t feel comfortable with touching your water heater, let our professionals handle it.

Alhambra Water Heater Fixes and Replacements

Before you yank out that water heater and send it off to the landfill, let us look over every part, connection, and tank to figure out what the real problem is.

These are some of the common fixes that can return your water heater to life:

  • Electric Water Heaters – Heating elements inside your tank may have gone out. Your water heater probably has two elements and they can usually be replaced with no issues. Thermostats can also fail and stop telling the water heater when it’s time to warm the water. A new part may be needed. There may also be a wiring issue that we can easily check.
  • Gas Water Heaters – Gas regulator valves can be the problem. A new one may be needed. A thermocouple sensor can also go haywire. This monitors the pilot light and makes sure it’s working properly before it allows gas to enter. If you can’t relight your pilot light it may be a thermocouple sensor to blame. It can be removed and replaced. Gas water heaters still use electricity and the wiring can be checked and tested.

If there’s a leak it may just be on a pipe going into or out of the tank. These seals can be repaired. If your tank no longer holds water, it’s a much more serious issue.  You’ll likely be needing a new water heater.
