Water Heater Repair and Replacement

Your water heater is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home. You often don’t realize the important role it plays in daily life until it breaks. Doing dishes, washing your hands, or taking a shower are dependent upon having hot water. The complexity of water heater repair depends entirely on what breaks. Choosing to repair or replace is dependent on several factors.

Our experienced plumbers will discuss water heater repair and replacement options with you in detail. Some problems are easily repaired while others may cost more to repair than replace. Water heaters only contain a few moving or working parts, so repair is usually relatively simple when you hire the right plumber.


Pilot Light or Circuit Breaker Failure: Gas units use pilot lights to spark and start the burner; circuit breakers are used in electric units.

Burner or Heating Element Failure: Heating elements in electric units or burners in gas units are the part that actually heats the water. These burn out over time, and are generally a simple repair.

Thermostat Problems: The thermostat is designed to turn the water heater on or off depending on the temperature of the water. Thermostat failure is one of the leading reasons for water heater repair.

Valve Problems: Valves occasionally stick and cause problems with water flow. Water that isn’t flowing correctly won’t be heated and won’t be delivered to the appropriate areas of your home.

Aging units, meaning those 10 years old or older, often need to be replaced. New units will save a lot of money on operations throughout the year.
