Sun City Water Heater Repair and Installation

People living in Sun City wake up with a lot on their minds. The day ahead may hold a drive into greater Phoenix to the office or school. It may include a sunny day out on one of the many local golf courses or some physical exertion at the Bell Recreation Center.

Our schedules make up our life routines, but nothing grinds our day down to a halt faster than an ice-cold shower. This may be the first time you’ve noticed a problem with your water heater, or it may have been a slow decline that you’ve been putting off checking on.

Either way, there’s no faster route to get back to a positive flow of hot water than to dial the professionals at Rooter & Plumbing Service covering Sun City homes.

Simple Water Heater Fixes in Sun City and Phoenix

Not every hot water flow issue should send you off to google new water heater units online. We hope to save you of that expense by looking for the simplest solution first. Water heaters can often be repaired and run as good as new.

In fact, your repair may only require a trip to your electrical breaker box. A fuse could have tripped for some reason and shut off power to your electric or gas water heater. A simple flip of the breaker may fix the problem immediately. If this isn’t the problem or the flipped breaker doesn’t restore power to your water heater please give us a call.

On a gas unit, the pilot light can sometimes go out. You may not feel comfortable relighting it yourself. And a pilot light that won’t relight can sometimes mean there’s a safety issue. Let us come out and confirm the true problem.

More Serious Water Heater Issues in Sun City

Water Heaters can be experiencing more serious issues. Our plumbers come out and check out the entire system to find where the failure is taking place.

Some of these issues can be fixed, other issues may make it more cost-effective to replace the entire water heater, especially as water heaters near the end of their lifespan.

  • Leaking Water Heater — A unit may have a leak where the water goes into the tank or where it comes out. These can often be resealed and fixed. When a water heater tank itself is leaking, repair may not be possible. Your family may need a new water heater.
  • Flushing the System – Water heaters need to be flushed out from time to time because sediments can build up with each new intake of water. This can clog tanks and pipes and greatly reduce a water heater’s capacity.
  • Heating Element– Your water heater likely has an upper and lower heating element. They superheat the water in your tank, so, if one or both go out you’ll get cold water. Luckily, these can usually be replaced with new parts.
  • Thermostat Replacement – The thermostat works to control the heating elements and tells them when and how much to heat the water. It can be replaced if it stops working correctly.
  • Gas Water Heater Problems – On gas units, it’s often the controls and sensors allowing gas flow that can need replacing. A malfunction can make it impossible to relight your pilot light. It’s a sign that a part has stopped doing its job.
  • Tankless Water Heater Issues – Tankless water heaters need to be flushed at least once a year and perhaps more often depending on the type of water your city or well provides.

Choosing a New Water Heater

If your water heater can’t be saved our plumbing experts will go over everything you need to know before you purchase a new one. You’ll need to know about the limitations of the water lines and electrical circuits in your house.

You should also realize that getting the same capacity water heater you had before may prove challenging. As units have gotten more efficient, they’ve also bulked up with more insulation. That means the same capacity water heater may not fit in the old space. We can make sure you’re purchasing a model that fits your house and your family’s needs.
