Common Culprits

  • Limescale
  • Sediment buildup
  • Gas or water supply problems
  • Improper water pressure
  • Worn or damaged wiring
  • Sensor or thermostat failure
  • Rust or corrosion of storage tank
  • Poor technique at the time of installation

Importance of Professional Water Heater Repairs

A water heater installation should connect to your electrical and natural gas systems, and working with these hazards requires specific training and tools. Our plumbers have the knowledge and protective equipment to safely troubleshoot, diagnose and repair your water heater. When you choose us for water heater repairs, we identify safety concerns, including electrical shorts, gas leaks, and improper combustion of natural gas. Our repairs also prevent water leaks that cause damage to your home or building.

Signs You Need a Water Heater Repair or Replacement

When water heaters malfunction, they offer some clues. If you observe any of these signs, you need a residential or commercial water heater replacement or repair:

  • Insufficient or no hot water
  • Strong-smelling water
  • Flakes or debris in hot water
  • Cloudy or rusty water

Benefits of Regular Maintenance


Preventive water heater maintenance promotes safe and efficient water heater functions. By clearing sediment and limescale from the water heater, we extend the heating element’s lifespan and improve water quality. Preventive maintenance improves the water heater’s energy efficiency, which may lower your utility bills and reduce the amount of water you waste while waiting for it to get hot. A well-maintained water heater experiences fewer malfunctions and lasts for a longer period of time.
