Goodyear Hot Water Heater Repair and Installation

Your day may start in Goodyear and include a commute into Phoenix for work or class. You may have a shopping list ready for a trip down Estrella Parkway. Whatever your plans, it can all be quickly iced by cold-running water.

A problem with a water heater can make itself known in an alarming fashion when someone gets hit with frigid water in the shower. There may be a small kink in your hot-water system or it could be a major issue, but either way, the right call is the call to Rooter & Plumbing Service. We’ll arrive on the scene to diagnose the problem and figure out the fastest way to get your family back to enjoying hot water.

Hot Water Heater Common Issues in Goodyear

Water Heaters have a fairly predictable run of service. They can start having issues around the 10-year mark, but with heavy use, units can start doing strange things after even a few years.

We never recommend buying a whole new unit before checking to see if a simple issue or part replacement will erase the problem.

These are some generally simple issues that don’t require a big investment on your part to mend:

  • Electric Service Panel Check –You can perform this check yourself. The breaker for your water heater may have flipped due to a power surge or another random issue. You open your breaker box and flip it back and see if that brings your hot water returns.  While you may use a gas-burning water heater, it still utilizes electricity and a flipped breaker cans still shut it down.
  • Relighting a Pilot Light– A gas water heater won’t heat unless the pilot light is on. It may go off after a disruption in the gas line or some other issue. We can check your lines and relight the pilot light. If it won’t relight it could signal a bigger issue.
  • A Tank Flush – If your hot water fades fast with each shower, you may need a tank flush. Tanks can build up with sediment and need to be cleaned out so more hot water can be made and stored up. We’ll drain the water and sediment. A tankless water heater also needs flushing/descaling due to build-up. This should be done once a year or more.

More Pressing Water Heater Issues

It may be a small part of the water heater that has the issue. We check each component to see where a replacement is necessary.

Here’s are some of the bigger problems water heaters can have:

  • Leaking Water Heater – Dripping water can be a sign a water line going into or out of the water heater has a leak. These leaks can be resealed. When the tank itself is leaking, it’s usually time to purchase a new model.
  • Electric Water Heater Issues – Heating elements extend inside the tank to heat up the stored water. These elements can usually be taken out and new ones installed. The thermostat that commands the heating elements to heat up could be the issue. A new one can be installed.
  • Gas Water Heater Issues – The control valve that direct the flow of gas can fail. It has a safety mechanism that prevents a more dangerous build-up of gas and fumes. It can be removed 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.
