Westridge Park Hot Water Heater Repair and Installation

If you live in Westridge Park, you are hopefully just far enough removed from central Phoenix to avoid some of the big city headaches that are everpresent. Yet, one headache few people manage to avoid is the constant battle to keep things up and working in the home.

That can include a water heater that suddenly takes a temperature dip and leaves your family with a cold shower. When your unit stops working the question is whether the problem can be fixed or if you’ll have to get someone to carry in a new model.

The best thing you can do is to discuss your surprise problem with a plumber at Rooter & Plumbing Service of Phoenix. We can quickly diagnose the issue and get your family back to enjoying hot water every morning and night.

Common Water Heater Issues In Westridge Park

Our plumbers will provide a thorough check-up. We don’t want to suggest a total replacement if a simple, inexpensive repair or adjustment is all that’s needed.

A simple check of your circuit breaker box is the first stop. A tripped breaker could have shut off power to your water heater. This can also end up being the issue on a gas-powered model because they still require electricity to operate.

On a gas-powered unit, you can check to see if the pilot light is out. These are very common issues that you may be able to handle yourself, but we are happy to come to your house and check for you.

If your problem is not cold water, but water that’s not quite warm enough you may just need an adjustment. The thermostat can be turned up.

Hot water tanks also collect sediment and fill up with crud instead of hot water. An occasional flush can help. Tankless hot water heaters need to be flushed/descaled at least once a year to keep them working properly.

More Serious Water Heater Issues

A key part of your water heater system may need replacing to restore your hot water. These are just a few of the components we will check to zero in on the true problem.

  • Heating Elements – Your unit will likely have two heating elements. They sit in the water and do the heavy-lifting when it comes to quick warm-ups. One or both elements can wear out and need replacing.
  • Bad Thermostats – The thermostat controls the temperature of your water. A malfunctioning thermostat won’t tell the elements when to heat up. Luckily, we can put in a brand new thermostat.
  • Gas Water Heaters – Valves that supply your unit with gas and sensors that regulate the flow of that gas can stop working. They can all be replaced to save you the time and expense of buying another water heater.
  • A Leaking Water Heater – A leak at the pipe connections on the outside of your unit can usually be solved by doing a reconnection and reseal. The more serious issue is if your water tank is leaking. This often means you’ll have to pull out the old unit and select a new model.

Water Heater Life Expectancies

Standard storage tank water heaters don’t last forever. At around a decade old you may start to have issues depending on how much action the tank sees in your daily home life.

If you require a new model, we won’t leave you to face that decision alone. We can consider your budget, your daily hot water needs, along with the space that you have for a new model, and help you determine your best option.

You might consider installing a hi-tech tankless unit to provide your family with limitless hot water. They would probably like the sound of that.
