Types of Water Heaters We Service

  • Gas water heater in a basement.Tankless water heaters: Tankless water heaters have been growing in popularity due to their ability to deliver an endless supply of hot water, making them very convenient for most households. These wall-mounted systems are ideal for small homes.
  • Electric water heaters: Despite their decline in popularity due to the high costs of running and maintaining them, electric water heaters are still appealing to many homeowners because of their compact size. Electric water heaters can even be placed under a sink or in a small cabinet, making them an excellent choice for most homes.
  • Gas water heaters: A traditional gas water heater is a great choice for those who want a large capacity and quick heating. Due to their design, these tend to use a lot of water when in use. To determine which water heater would be best for your home, it’s best to become familiar with all three options.

When To Call for Emergency Water Heater Repair

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, so at the first sign that it isn’t doing its job, don’t delay calling an expert plumber.

Here are some things to watch out for:

  • Hot water runs out quickly: Does your water go cold only a few minutes into a supposedly relaxing shower? Your water heater may be undersized or you could have a problem with the thermostat.
  • No hot water: Check if the circuit breaker has been tripped (electric model) or if the pilot light has gone out (gas models). If neither of these issues have happened, then a professional plumber may be needed.
  • Hot water smells bad and/or is discolored: Your water heater or its anode rod may be corroded, or the water heater may need to be flushed to remove bacteria and sediment buildup.
  • Water heater is leaking: Sometimes this is a repairable problem, such as when it involves tightening valves. Other times, such as when the leak is at the base, it means the water heater needs replacing.
