Maryvale Village Hot Water Heater Installation and Repair

Residents in Maryvale Village wake up and generally have things that need doing or places to be. A quick trip to the shower can be the first stop on the way to work on the other side of Phoenix, to a college class, or over to Desert West Park for some family exercise.

But what if that first shower of the day never happens? The day probably unfolds a bit differently. That’s what’s at stake when a water heater takes a dive and stops pumping out hot water. It could be a minor or major inconvenience, but either way, it’s something you want to take care of quickly.

The fastest path to a new stream of hot water is to contact Rooter & Plumbing Service providing assistance to everyone in the greater Phoenix area. We will make your issue a priority and get you back to enjoying hot showers again.

What to Know if You Need a New Hot Water Heater

Our plumbers won’t resort to a full water heater replacement if a simple repair is all that’s needed. If buying a new water heater is going to be impossible to avoid there are a few things to keep in mind.

Standard reservoir water heaters can start to experience problems at the decade mark, give or take a few years depending on usage rate. Once a unit gets beyond 10-years old, a loss of hot water could indicate a need for a new installation.

Here’s an idea of the costs and considerations you’ll face:

  • Standard Water Heater Prices – The cheapest water heater can run you around $450 and go up to around $1500 for the more efficient options. That price doesn’t include installation.
  • Water Heaters and New Sizes – As traditional water heaters have been designed to be more efficient some of them have actually gotten bulkier. They have more insulation to better conserve energy.  So a new unit may not fit in the same spot as your old unit. They can have the exact same capacity, but still not sit in the same place. A plumber can measure all dimensions to check for compatibility.
  • Tankless Water Heaters – These units are more expensive. The huge advantage they have is they offer unlimited hot water and also save on electric bills. The units are small and can fit inside a closet if necessary. Our plumbers will check to see if your current electrical and gas lines are sufficient for a tankless water heater or if an upgrade is needed.

Water Heater Troubleshooting in Maryvale Village

We may also find that your water heater had a lot of life left. A minor or a bit more involved repair could restore it back to a hot water powerhouse.

These are a few of the fixable problems we may find:

  • Easy to Handle Fixes: A breaker may have tripped in your breaker box. Simply flipping the breaker back may allow the water heater to function normally again. This could be something you check yourself. On a gas model, a pilot light can go out and leave you with unheated water. It’s a simple fix as well, but if it won’t relight there may be something else wrong.
  • Bigger Repairs: Several parts inside a hot water heater can be replaced. A heating element inside the water tank is replaceable if it has stopped working. Thermostats can break and fail to tell the elements when to heat. A new one can go in. On a gas water heater, you may need a new valve to control the flow of gas. A new thermocouple sensor could also prove necessary. A leak on the outside of the tank in the lines going in and out can usually be repaired. However, if the tank itself is leaking a new model may be a necessary purchase.
