At JBK Plumbing, my team and I repair and replace water heaters all the time. The Utah hard water is particularly hard on water appliances. There are a few different things that are telltale signs that your water heater needs repair. If you’re not getting enough water or the water smells like rotten eggs, it’s likely that you need some type of repair. If there is rusty or leaking water, that’s another sign that you need to get someone in to look at your appliance. Some of the parts we repair or replace are heating elements and thermostats, burners, anode rods. We also install a full range of gas water heaters and tankless hot water heaters including piping new gas lines to the heaters where needed. If we need to install a new water heater, we will dispose of the old one. We also have available to us a full line of replacement products if you want to upgrade or update a part. If you’re having any of the issues mentioned above, reach out today and we’ll come take a look ASAP.
Water heater repair may be the route to take if something within the heater has become faulty such as the pressure-relief valve, heating element, thermostat, or fittings around the water supply pipes. Replacing these parts is fairly simple and does not require a full unit replacement. Our water heater repair experts at JBK Plumbers are also well-equipped to use common troubleshooting techniques for each type of water heater (electric, gas, or solar). Techniques such as flushing the heater to remove sediment, insulating the water pipes, cleaning the gas burner, and making sure the pilot light is lit.
Not having any hot water or simply having water that is not hot enough is a common sign that there is an issue with your hot water heater. There are a variety of reasons why the water is not heating, so you may be able to save a couple bucks by repairing the appliance rather than replacing it. At JBK Plumbers, we have the knowledge, skills, and experience to diagnose hot water heater issues and help you decide if repairing the unit or replacing it is right for you.
In some circumstances, our experienced plumbers will complete their inspection of your water heater and recommend a replacement of the whole unit. If you have a leak around the base of the water heater, works erratically or not at all, or your unit is over 10 years old, it may be time to replace it. Once we help you choose the right unit for your home, the water heater installation process will be completely properly and efficiently.
It is critical that a licensed and experienced plumber such as ours use their expertise for a water heater installation. Whether you want a heater similar to your current one or perhaps upgrade to a tankless or solar heater, we can quickly get your home back in hot water! During the water heater installation process, we will drain and remove your old heater, modify your plumbing as needed to ensure it meets current code requirements, make sure all permits are in order, and install your new unit. After completing the installation and checking that it is working properly, we will take care of the disposal of your old heater as well. Give us a call or send us a message today to make an appointment!
