Water Heater Repair, Service, & Installation in Fredericksburg, VA

If you have a home or business in need of a water heater installation or service Fredericksburg , you can always count on The Pipe Doctor Plumbing & Drain for professional assistance and affordable pricing. With years of experience in the plumbing industry, we understand that proper water heater installation and service are critical for ensuring safe and optimal performance.

For homes, as well as many businesses, hot water is an essential part of the daily routine. For showers, laundry, cooking, and more, you need a system you can rely on day and night. For friendly service from a knowledgeable plumber, we handle problems for both electric and gas systems.

Needing a New Install or Maintenance


You can expect one of several things to occur when the time comes for a new water heater installation or service call. Although we provide precision work for new systems when building or upgrading a home or business, we also assess potential problems, identify the cause, and then determine if you need a new water heater or the existing one repaired.

Typically, our customers in Fredericksburg are the first ones to detect a potential problem.

  • Age – Usually, an electric water heater lasts between 10 and 15 years. However, one that runs on gas is good for 10 to 12 years. If your current system is near or beyond these ranges, you probably need a new one installed.
  • Temperature – Even with the temperature setting at high, you might begin running out of hot water faster than normal.
  • Water – Any rust-colored water indicates the tank has reached its lifespan and started to erode. In this case, you want to contact us at Pipe Doctor Plumbing & Drain as soon as possible to avoid a significant and costly mess.
  • Pooled Water – When a heater is already deteriorating, a leak forms, causing water to puddle near the base. In this instance, you probably need a new water heater installation, not service. Keep in mind that even a small amount of moisture near the bottom of the unit could indicate the start of a leak.
