Common Water Heater Repairs

On average, a water heater has a life of around 8 to 12 years. However, during this time there may be some issues that need to be addressed by a professional. Our licensed professional technicians can fix any type of water heater issue. Some of the most common problems we see include:

Faulty burners. A gas-powered water heater may develop rust or grime on the burner, which can result in ignition problems.

Failing heating elements. There are two heating elements inside the tank of electric water heaters. One of them may burn out, causing a decrease in the temperature of the water.

Rusty water. Hot water heater tanks contain a sacrificial anode rod. Electrolysis causes the rod to rust instead of the tank, hence the word “sacrificial.” When the rod becomes too damaged to do its job properly, however, you may notice rusty water coming from your faucets.

Leaky water heater. A leaking water heater is a serious problem because the water can damage the structural elements of your home, as well as your property. Common causes of water heater leaks include loose drain valves, excessive pressure, and old age.

Water heater leaks. A leaking water heater is a serious problem, because the water can damage the structural elements of your home, as well as your property. Common causes of water heater leaks include loose drain valves, excessive water pressure, and old age.

Temperature issues. If the water flowing in the house is not warming up or is too hot, a technician can check the heater to determine if there is an issue with the power, heating element, or thermostat.

I could not recommend this company enough! Years ago, my husband and I had Intelligent Design install our HVAC system. We were so thrilled with the level of expertise and professionalism that we decided to purchase their Diamond Club Membership to have routine HVAC tune-ups. A few years later, we had a different issue with roots growing in our main plumbing line. Luckily, Intelligent Design does plumbing as well! They promptly had a technician come over and clear the main line for us at a reasonable price. That brings us to today. We needed a new water heater installed because the one we had was not up to code and needed replacing. I want to give a special shout-out to Jared Smith, the technician who came out to do the inspection and the installation. He took the time to educate us on the issues he found and was transparent about options and pricing. His level of expertise and professionalism is why we will continue to count on Intelligent Design for our home needs.

We called Intelligent Design because our hot water tank "temperature and pressure" valve had a big continuous leak. Plumber Joshua was sent out. He was very helpful and explained the possible need to replace the tank. It had already had the valve replaced multiple times and because the valve was welded on, he may not be able to replace it again. He took it off and said he wouldn't be able to put in a new one. And this tank was 10 years old. He suggested a new tank.We agreed and he gave us a quote. He said he would replace every gas and water line to and from the new tank, and all the shut off valves. He stated most installs don't include those, and will therefore look less expensive.He arranged to have the new tank delivered within the hour, and he was back in two hours to install it. Everything looked perfect (and new) when he was done.
