No Hot Water? Try These Tips at Home.
If you no longer have hot water, try these first steps to troubleshoot the issue:
- Relight the pilot light in gas water heaters if necessary.
- Look at the thermostat to see if it’s set high enough.
- Locate a blown fuse if you have an electric water heater.
- Examine if the tank is leaking. If it is, shut off the valve on the inlet side.
Water Heater Repair
If these troubleshooting tips don’t solve the problem, call our professional water heater plumbers immediately. You could be facing a broken gas thermocouple, broken electric heating element, faulty valve or failed tank in need of replacement.
Water Heater Installation
Not all water heaters can be repaired. If you have a leaky tank, for example, you may need to replace it. We can help you make an educated choice between new conventional, tankless, and hybrid energy-efficient options. We’ll even haul away your old water heater, so you don’t have to worry.
Department Store Water Heaters vs. Professional Brands?
Keep in mind that not all water heaters are created equal. While we strive to provide the most affordable plumbing, department store water heaters often prematurely fail. We find that they result in costly leaks much sooner than quality brands. We rely on Bradford White and AO Smith brands for the following reasons:
- Brass instead of plastic parts
- Brass drain-down valve
- Liner is two inches thicker
- Six-year manufacturer warranty
- Full replacement or free parts to repair within warranty
- Readily available replacement parts
During the lifetime of your home, most homeowners can expect to replace their water heater at least once. If you suspect problems or are looking for honest preventative maintenance, we provide reliable and efficient water heater services.
