One of the biggest issues with water heater maintenance is determining whether you need to replace your current water heater or if a repair will suffice. Water heaters generally last around ten years, so if problems come up sooner than that, it can be an unexpected repair bill. At Plumbsmart Technologies LLC Plumbing and Drain, we guarantee that our technicians will give you an honest assessment of the best approach. We won’t recommend a replacement when a repair will do. We will, though, tell you if it’s time to replace the heater so you’re not calling us to come out for regular repairs.
Dependable Water Heater Repair Services
When water heaters stop working, it can be stressful. You may walk into the basement to find a pool of water collecting around the base of the water heater. Or, all of a sudden, it’s impossible to take a hot shower or get hot water from any of your sinks. Water heaters are often installed away from high-traffic areas in the building, so usually, a malfunctioning water heater comes unexpectedly.
When water heaters break, we know that clients want them fixed as soon as possible. There’s only so long someone can live without hot water. We have the resources necessary to get your water heater fixed or replace it with a new one immediately.
Some Common Causes of Water Heater Issues
Time is the biggest cause of water heater damage. These appliances have a limited lifespan, so usually, it’s a matter of time before they start to wear down. However, sometimes sediment buildup in the tank happens sooner than expected. When the water heater is on, it heats water that everyone in the house can use. During the heating process, though, magnesium and calcium separate from the water and collect along the walls of the tank. When there’s too much sediment buildup, it limits the heating capacity of the water heater.
It’s very difficult to tell what’s going on inside a water heater tank. The walls aren’t transparent. Usually, the water heater just stops working and Plumbsmart Technologies LLC Plumbing and Drain gets called for a repair. One thing people can do is to occasionally check the intensity of the water heater flame while it’s on. If it’s burning a solid blue color, that means the intensity is high and it’s working well. If, however, the flame is light yellow, it could mean the water heater is having a hard time.
Consultation and Repairs
When you buy a water heater, you hope to get the most out of your investment. When someone is told that a water heater will last more than a decade, they don’t want to hear about a replacement after just a few years. We do our best to avoid replacements. When minor repairs can extend the lifespan of the appliance, we default to that. We do, though, try and tell our customers about what to expect in the future. Oftentimes, repairs can only prolong total failure for a short time.
The team at Plumbsmart Technologies LLC Plumbing and Drain is trained to conduct thorough inspections of water heaters before recommending either repair or total replacement. If you’re looking at having to deal with recurring repairs, you’re likely better off buying a new water heater. You don’t have to have to deal with the stress of your water heater constantly breaking down. We can suggest certain models fit your budget and your home’s needs. Installation can be done quickly and on your schedule.
If your water heater is giving you trouble in Asheville, NC, don’t wait until it completely stops working. Call Plumbsmart Technologies LLC Plumbing and Drain at 828-974-6147 for an inspection to find out what’s going on. We’ll help you work through your options and find the best solution.
How Much Do Water Heater Replacements Cost?
