Scottsdale Hot Water Heater Repair and Installation

When we wake up in the morning in Scottsdale most of us are immediately focused on the first destination of the day. It might be driving the kids to school, or the commute into Phoenix or Tempe, or a coffee drive-thru pitstop.

The last thing we think about is the hot water we stand under in the shower or use to clean up after breakfast. It’s always there until it isn’t. It can be a shock, but when there’s a problem with your hot water heater a simple phone call can get things flowing again.

A call to Rooter & Plumbing Service will put you in touch with a real plumber with experience with every type of local plumbing problem and solution. We serve all of Scottdale from Terravita down to McCormick Ranch and beyond. If you think you have a water heater issue, there’s no time to wait. That next shower may be tonight or tomorrow morning, either way, you don’t want it to be a cold one.

Scottdale Hot Water Heater Check-Ups

Water Heater issues can be something as simple as a flipped breaker or a pilot light going out. We will try those simple solutions first, but sometimes the problem can a bit more complex and even inside the water heater tank itself.

These are the things we’ll be checking:

  • Water Heater Flush – Older water heaters can start providing reduced levels of hot water over the years. Sediment can build up in the tank, leaving less room to store water.  Tankless water heaters need flushing and descaling once a year at least to remove the build-up of minerals before they affect the hot water coming out of your fixtures.
  • Heating Elements – Most traditional water heaters have two heating elements that extend into the water to heat it up. You might have one or both go out. Luckily, they can be replaced.
  • Thermostat Check – The thermostat controls how hot the heating elements make the water. If a thermostat stops communicating with the elements you’ll get cold water. Thermostats can be replaced.
  • Gas Water Heaters  – There are controls and sensors that regulate the gas flow in a gas-burning water heater. These parts can be replaced. As a safety precaution, any issue with these parts can automatically shut off gas to the pilot light and make it impossible to relight until the repair is made.
  • Water Heater Leaks – A leak on the outside of the unit can mean you have a bad connection on a pipe running into or out of the tank. These leaks can usually be fixed.  If the tank itself is leaking, there’s usually nothing to be done. A new model is probably needed.

What to Know About the Newest Water Heaters

Depending on usage and water mineral levels, traditional storage-tank water heaters can keep running strong from anywhere between eight to fifteen years.

There are a few advancements to know about when it comes to selecting your new water heater:

  • You may not be able to get the same size water heater as you had. To get more efficient, water heaters now come wrapped in more insulation and that makes them bigger. So if you get the same size water heater as you had, it may not fit in the same space as your old one. One of our plumbers can help you select the right model for your home and make sure it’s going to fit your space or help you find a new spot.
  • If you love hot water you may want to consider a tankless water heater. The units are more expensive but they are also more efficient and can save you money on your power bills. They also last longer, but the real benefit is that they never run out of hot water. You get instant hot water made on-demand from a box small enough to fit in your closet. Our experts make sure you have the right lines coming into your house to support a tankless water heater.
