South Mountain Village Hot Water Heater Repair and Installation

Waking up in South Mountain Village can be a pretty good feeling. Especially when you’re so close to everything in downtown Phoenix and the natural beauty of South Mountain Park. But if you don’t have hot water for that first shower of the day, your morning may never get started.

A water heater conking out can be the very last thing you want to discover when you get up, but it’s bound to happen at some point in the life of your home. Once it does happen, the next step is determining if you need a simple fix or repair or if you need a whole new unit.

It’s the perfect time to give Rooter & Plumbing Service a call. We provide South Mountain Village and the greater Phoenix area with professional water heater inspections and solutions. Give us the chance to get your hot water flowing again without any unnecessary messes or charges.

Quick South Mountain Village Water Heater Check-Ups

Water heaters can start to show their age anywhere after eight years old, but some can run just fine for 12 years or more.

The good news is that not every water heater issue requires an expensive replacement job. Your unit may just need a replacement part or adjustment to get hot water back in your bathroom, laundry room, and kitchen. Our plumbers won’t suggest a major repair or replacement if it’s not needed.

Your water heater problem can be the result of a tripped breaker or, on gas models, a pilot light going out.  We can double-check for these issues for you too.

Here are a few other things we’ll be checking:

  • Water Heater Flush – Older water heaters see sediment build-up start to limit the hot water capacity in their tanks. They need flushing at times. Tankless water heaters need flushing and descaling annually to keep build-up from affecting the amount of hot water provided.
  • Heating Elements – Most traditional water heaters have two heating elements that extend into the tank to heat it up. They can stop working but are easy to replace.
  • Bad Thermostats  – The thermostat controls how hot the heating elements make the water. If a thermostat stops doing its job the elements won’t know to heat. We can put in a brand new thermostat. We can even turn up the temperature on a thermostat if you like hotter water.
  • Gas Water Heaters  – Controls and sensors regulate the flow of gas in a gas-burning unit. Some of these parts come with safety measures that won’t let you relight a pilot light until repairs or replacements are 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 necessary.

Replacing a Hot Water Heater in South Mountain Village

Water heaters can reach the end of their usefulness after a long time in service. Heavy use can also shorten their lives. There are a few things to consider if you do end up shopping for a new water heater.

The size of your next water heater may not be a cut-and-dry decision.  Water heaters are wrapped with more insulation nowadays to keep them more efficient. This also leaves them a bit wider. So if you buy the same size tank as you have now it can end up not fitting in the old space. These measurements can be checked by your plumber and we can certainly recommend your best options for your space and your family size.

The tank size won’t matter if you decide to get a tankless water heater. These models are more expensive, but they also fit almost anywhere and will save you on your power bill. The true miracle is that they provide a never-ending stream of hot water whenever you need it.

You’ll need to make sure you have the right gas and power lines coming into your house to support a tankless water heater. Our professionals can help get the necessary changes made if required.
