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.

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.
