Sun City West Hot Water Heater Repair and Installation

Sun City West is designed for people to enjoy outdoor activities and fun and interesting local hotspots. Residents may need to prep for a day at work or clean up after a morning of golf or tennis at Hillcrest or Corte Bella. They can reach for that hot water knob in the shower and suddenly feel like they are in a polar freeze.

The hot water isn’t flowing and that means your water heater needs some attention. Not to worry, a cold shower may not mean you are on the hook for the cost of a full water heater replacement.

Calling Rooter & Plumbing Service is the first step to diagnosing the proper fix needed for your water heater. We can quickly get hot water restored to your bathrooms, laundry room, and kitchen.

Do I Repair or Replace my Water Heater in my Sun City West Home?

Water heaters don’t generally get a lot of attention when they are working right. You may not have given it a second thought when you moved into your home and you’ve probably never had a single issue with your unit.

That “hot streak” can change when water heaters get up there in years. Standard Hot Water Heaters can last 10 years or more, but some can start to have problems in a little as eight years depending on usage rate.

The age of your water heater is something to consider when you start seeing diminished output, but replacement is not our first suggestion when we inspect your unit. We look for the simplest and most economical solution for your problem first. That could mean a relatively simple part replacement that gets your hot water flowing.

The professionals at Rooter & Plumbing Service will tell you if a replacement is necessary and also help you make sure your next unit is the right fit for your home.

Common Water Heater Issues in Sun City West

Sometimes a lack of hot water is a simple power supply problem. A random surge may have flipped your breaker in your circuit breaker box. You can check your box and see if the breaker simply needs to be flipped back.

On a gas-powered water heater, pilot lights can go out. If you have experience, you may be able to relight this yourself. We are happy to come out and check your unit and relight the pilot light if necessary.

If you’re feeling only lukewarm water from your shower or your hot water runs out much faster than it used to, your unit may need a flush. Sediment can build up in the tank and reduce capacity. Tankless hot water heaters need to be flushed/descaled once a year to keep them working properly.

Major Water Heater Issues in Sun City West

Your unit might need a part replacement or an adjustment inside a panel. You also might have to begin the search for a new water heater.

These are some of the more serious issues your water heater could have:

  • Part Replacement: Problems with a part on your unit can require a component replacement. Your plumber would usually need to open up the water heater to diagnose and fix the problem.  A new heating element, thermostat, or gas valve can be installed.
  • Electrical Issues – If you are getting alternating hot and cold water you may have a problem with the electrical lines powering your water heater.
  • Tank Leak: This may or may not mean you need a new water heater. If our experts find the leak is in the pipes going into or out of the unit, a fix is usually possible. When the tank itself is leaking, there’s usually no repair that can save the unit.

If you do find yourself in need of a new water heater our professionals will discuss your options with you. You might opt for a new tankless water heater to gift your family with an endless supply of hot water on demand. We can tell you if this upgrade is right for your home.
