Hot Water Heater Installation and Repair in Chandler

Your day may take you on quite a drive across Chandler and greater Phoenix to get to work, school, or just to the grocery store, but getting out the door may be the hardest part of the journey. And that is especially true when your hot water heater lets you down. Without a hot shower in the morning, your day may never get off the ground.

The lack of that all-important hot water may be a big or little problem but you won’t know until you contact Rooter & Plumbing Service serving all of Chandler. Let us track down the issue and talk over you’re your options with you. Let’s get that hot water flowing again to get your family back into their daily routine as fast as possible.

Hot Water Heater Common Issues in Chandler

Water Heaters have a fairly well-known lifespan. They can start having issues at eight years and up and usually don’t provide service much past 12-years or so. But if your water heater is still strong and functioning there may be other issues keeping hot water out of your bathroom, kitchen, and laundry room.

These are some generally simple issues that don’t require a major repair to fix:

  • Breaker Box Check – One check you can probably make yourself is to look at your circuit breakers. The breaker for your water heater may have flipped due to a random issue. You can flip it back and see if that returns your flow. You may have a gas-burning water heater but it still uses electricity and a breaker can still be an issue.
  • Relighting a Gas Unit – The pilot light can go dark on a gas water heater. You might feel comfortable relighting it yourself. If not call us. If you can’t relight the pilot light that usually means a safety default has taken over to prevent it from being lit. That can mean there’s an issue with another part.
  • A Flush – If you have hot water but it doesn’t seem to last as long as it used to, you may need a flush. Tanks can build up with sediment and need to be cleaned out so more water can be stored. Our plumber can come out and drain the water and sediment. If you attempt this flush yourself remember to turn off the water heater and give it plenty of time to cool off. You don’t want to get scalded by hot water as you flush the tank.
  • Temperature Drop – Hot water heaters have a temperature gauge. If for some reason you need hotter water, you can usually access this thermostat by removing a panel. You can try setting it to a higher temperature, but once it has time to warm up, you’ll want to make sure you test the water temperature with your hand before a family member stands under a shower and gets scalded.

Bigger Water Heater Issues

We look for the simplest fix when we examine your water heater. We don’t charge you for a whole new system or a repair unless it’s needed.

Sometimes it’s a part that’s the problem and those can usually be removed and a new one can go right in. For bigger issues, a new model may be the only solution. We can help you with that selection too.

Here’s a look at some of the problems water heaters can have:

  • Leaking Water Heater – A leaking unit can be a sign of a couple of things. If the tank itself is leaking there’s generally no repair that will help. We can assist you in finding a new water heater that best suits your needs and then install it. If the leak is coming from a pipe going into or out of the unit it can usually be patched and be as good as new.
  • Electric Water Heater Issues – A heating element inside the tank may have gone out, but these can usually be replaced. The thermostat that controls the heating elements may be bad. A new one can be installed.
  • Gas Water Heater Issues – A control valve that allows the gas to flow into the unit can be the issue. It has a safety mechanism that prevents a more dangerous problem. It can be taken out and replaced.  A thermocouple sensor monitors the pilot light and lets gas from the gas control valve through when it’s functioning. If it’s gone bad our plumbers can put in a new one.
