Water Heater Repairs
Taking a hot shower, soaking in the tub, cleaning dishes, and washing laundry are all dependent on hot water. We rely on our water heaters to work well 24 hours a day. Without an optimally functioning water heater, your routine can be seriously shaken up.
Leaks are a common hot water heater problem and could be the result of a loose or broken drain valve, sediment buildup, anode rod corrosion, rust, or too much pressure from water or steam. When your water heater fails, you require experienced assistance as soon as possible. You can rely on the experts at Leeson Plumbing to get your water heater back to optimal functionality.
Water Heater Installations
Whether you need to replace your old hot water heater or install a unit in your newly constructed home, Leeson Plumbing will make sure that your unit is installed and functioning optimally in the most efficient manner possible. We will install both water heaters you have purchased yourself or we will recommend a water heater that best suits the needs of your family and budget.
Tank Water Heaters
Leeson Plumbing recommends both gas and electric Bradford White conventional tank water heaters. These water heaters are highly efficient, which results in less energy usage and can save you money on your monthly utility bill.
Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heaters typically cost more than conventional water heaters but can save you money in the long run. Tankless water heaters provide a constant supply of hot water to your home. We recommend Navien Tankless Water Heaters, which are the number one selling high-efficiency tankless water heaters in North America.
Common Water Heater Problems
Not Enough Hot Water
If your water heater isn’t working, check to see if the pilot light is on and if it’s not, turn it on. If the pilot light is functioning but you still don’t have hot water, there’s a bigger issue that needs to be addressed.
Water Temperature Too Hot or Cold
If your water is too hot or cold, the thermostat is usually set a little too high or too low. Check the thermostat and adjust it to the desired temperature. If that fails to fix the problem, you may have a malfunctioning thermostat or sediment build-up in your tank.
No Hot Water
Running out of hot water indicates that your water heater’s thermostat may not be working properly, or that your water heater doesn’t have the capacity to handle the size of your household.
Water is Rust Colored or Has a Metallic Odor
Rust-colored water or a metallic odor indicates that your water heater anode rod needs to be replaced. The anode rod prevents rust from forming in your tank by attracting corrosive elements in the water and should be replaced about every five years. If replaced before it fails, you can extend the life of your water heater significantly. If corrosion from the failed anode rod has led to cracks in the lining of your water heater, you will need to have it replaced.
Water Heater Leaks
Leaks are a common hot water heater problem and may be the result of a loose or broken drain valve, sediment buildup, anode rod corrosion, rust, or too much pressure from water or steam. If you notice a leak, it’s best to call a professional at Leeson Plumbing to diagnose and provide solutions to the problem.
Plumbing Pro Tip
The average lifespan of a water heater is between 8-12 years and is affected by the type of water heater you own and the quality of water in your area. Water that is high in mineral content, or hard water, creates build-up inside your water heater, called scaling. This build-up of minerals can lead to blockages and corrosion within the tank. A regular maintenance schedule can prevent early repairs or replacement of your water heater.
