Traditional Tank Water Heater Repair & Replacement
If you are experiencing a problem with your water heater, In Demand Plumbing can help. We provide water heater installation and repair to deliver the right solution to every problem. Our plumbers for Antioch are trained and equipped to provide a careful inspection of your water heater to determine the source of the problem and the best way to solve it.
We offer water heater repair for common problems, such as:
- Water Heater Not Working at All - This can be caused by a thermostat that is set too low, clogged burners, low gas pressure, leaking faucets, or burned-out heating elements.
- Slow Hot Water Recovery - When the hot water isn't recovering as fast as it once did, the problem may be sediment buildup inside the tank, improper burner operation, or insufficient ventilation.
- Pilot Light Not Staying Lit - Pilot light problems can be caused by a draft, dirt in the gas line, loose thermocouple connections, or a defective thermocouple.
How Long Does a Water Heater Last?
For a well-maintained tanked water heater, you can expect it to last you between five and fourteen years. This will depend on a number of variables including if your unit received proper maintenance and the amount of use it had.
Replacing Your Water Heater
With proper maintenance, a water heater can last for a decade, or even longer for a tankless water heater. If a water heater isn't well maintained, it may not last that long. Age is only one consideration when determining if replacement is the best solution. Know the signs that replacement may be needed to avoid a complete loss of hot water or water damage to your home.
It may be time for a new water heater installation when:
- Hot water running out faster than normal
- Rusty looking hot water
- The unit needs frequent repairs
- Corrosion on the tank
- Higher operating costs
Our plumbers can inspect your water heater to find out why it's not working right and determine if repair or replacement is the best option for you. We can walk you through the options, explain the problem that we find, and help you make the best decision for your home.
When you need a water heater installation, we can assess your home's hot water demand to ensure that the new water heater is capable of meeting your needs.
