Water Heater Repair and Installation in Tempe

Temperatures in Tempe can get pretty hot, but the one place you don’t want a cool down is in the shower. If your water heater starts offering lukewarm water or cold water, you may have a quick decision on your hands. Can your current hot water heater be repaired or is it time to retire the old model and get a new one?

We can help you with that decision. The truth is the problem could be a small and easy fix or the problem may be a major malfunction that requires a whole new water heater.  Call Rooter & Plumbing Service covering Tempe and the surrounding area for the quickest diagnosis. We can find the problem and fix it before your family decides to abandon the house and move into a hotel.

Hot Water Heater Issues in Tempe

Sometimes a minor repair can get your water heater back up and running in a jiffy. A tripped circuit breaker or a fuse could be your issue. On a gas-burning water heater, it may be a pilot light that’s gone out. You may be able to diagnose these problems, but we are happy to come out and check for these issues or bigger problems.

Water Heaters can have bigger issues going on. Some of them can be repaired, other problems may make it more cost-effective to replace the entire unit, especially on older models that may be nearing the end of their lifespan.

These are a few of the common problems we find with water heaters:

  • Leaking Water Heater — A leaking water heater can mean the end of the line for the unit. If the tank itself is leaking, it’s time for a new model.  If the problem is a leak on a water line going into a water heater or on a relief valve then a repair can usually be made.
  • In Need Of A Flush – Older water heaters can start providing less and less hot water over the years. Sediment can build up in the tank, leaving less room to store hot water.  A flush can get your hot water back to capacity again.
  • Heating Element Replacement –An upper and lower element may need to be pulled out and replaced.
  • Thermostat Replacement – The thermostat adjusts the temperature for the heating elements. If a thermostat stops telling the elements to heat you’ll get cold water.
  • Gas Water Heater Issues – On a gas unit the controls and sensors that regulate the gas flow can need replacing. A malfunction can make it impossible to relight your pilot light.
  • Tankless Water Heater Issues – A shutdown may mean a filter unclogging is needed. Hot and cold water randomly during a shower can mean an electrical issue in the unit or in your home’s electrical lines.

What to Know About Replacing a Hot Water Heater in Tempe

Water heaters can keep up their daily duties anywhere from eight to twelve years or more at times. So if you are having problems and the water heater has been heavily used for over eight years, it may be time for a new model.

The size of your next water heater may be something to consider closely. Water heaters are packed with more insulation these days to hold more heat. This has made units bigger. You can buy the same size tank you have now, but it may not fit in the same space. These measurements can be checked by your plumber.

If you have a standard tank water heater you may want to look into switching to a tankless hot water heater. Units are more expensive but they are small and they never run out of hot water. They also last longer. You’ll need to make sure you have the right gas and power lines coming into your house to support a tankless water heater. A plumber can help get the necessary changes made if needed.
