You can expect a residential water heater to last somewhere between eight and twelve years. We will do everything we can to extend the life of your water heater. But our plumbers will also be honest with you about how long you can expect the unit to last. We won’t waste your valuable time and money with frequent repairs when a replacement is the better choice.

Water Heater Repair
The first sign you need water heater repair service is when the flow from a tap is too hot or too cold. If you have no hot water, you might want to check the thermostat first to see if it is set high enough. Also check for a blown fuse or circuit breaker if yours is electric. If yours is a gas model, make sure the pilot light is lit. These are simple water heater repairs anyone can do. If that doesn’t solve the problem, call us. You could be facing a broken gas thermocouple or electric heating element. (Always be very careful around gas devices as there is a risk of explosion).

Banging, whirring and whistling noises can indicate several types of issues with water heaters. Sediment can build up inside the tank and literally be burned by the heating elements. Other times, the element itself can burn out and need replacement. Our plumbing services can troubleshoot and fix your problem right the first time. Our service team carries all the diagnostic equipment and tools needed, plus the know-how from decades of experience.

We understand the importance of hot water to you. It means the all the difference in the world for clean, sanitary dishes, a pleasant shower, and clean laundry. Whatever issues you have with your water heater, call us today. One of our licensed and highly trained plumbers will arrive at your home with a fully stocked van, so most repairs can be completed in one visit.

Water Heater Installation
Not all water heaters can be repaired. There are times that due to age, or excessive repairs needed, that our team will recommend it is time to replace your water heater. If you have a leaky tank, for example, you will most likely have to replace it. If that is the case, we will be happy to install your new system for you with the least amount of down time possible. We do our job well, and we do it fast, so that your life isn’t on hold for long.

Tankless water heaters are the best alternative to traditional water heaters if you are looking for endless hot water. As the name implies, there is no tank, just a small heating unit. With a typical water heater, the tank must heat the water before passing it on through the pipes. Once the tank is emptied, the process starts over again. With a tankless water heater, there is no waiting around for hot water.

Since heating up water is a large percentage of your electric bill, if you switch to a tankless heater you will save money in the long run. If you already have a tankless unit, and a problem occurs, we can repair it for you. Call us today to learn more about all the benefits of tankless water heaters or any of our plumbing services.

There are so many different designs, models and options that sometimes it can be hard to choose a new one. Contact us today about finding an energy-smart new tank model, or switch to an on-demand type that will help you save on utility bills. We can select one for you or you can buy it independently and we’ll install it for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Hybrid Water Heater?

Hybrid water heaters are known for their energy efficiency. They use a heat pump to extract heat from the surrounding air and transfer it to the water, making them more efficient than traditional electric water heaters. If you’re looking to reduce your energy consumption and lower your utility bills, ask Comfort Solutions about the hybrid water heater options we offer.

Why is my water heater not producing hot water?

Common causes include a malfunctioning thermostat, a broken heating element, or sediment buildup. You may need to adjust settings, replace parts, or flush the tank to resolve the issue.

What is the lifespan of water heaters?

Tankless Water Heaters typically have a longer lifespan compared to traditional tank-style water heaters. They can last anywhere from 15 to 20 years or more with proper maintenance.  Annual maintenance is very important.

Gas and Electric Tank-style Water Heaters: Traditional tank-style water heaters have a lifespan of around 8 to 12 years. Gas water heaters may have a slightly shorter lifespan compared to electric ones.

Heat Pump Water Heaters: Heat pump water heaters can last 10 to 15 years or more, but their lifespan can be affected by factors like the quality of installation and usage patterns.
