When Do I Need to Schedule a Water Heater Repair Service Appointment?

There are many signs that can indicate a problem with your water heater, including:

  • No hot water/not enough hot water
  • Pool of water surrounding your system
  • Unusual noises
  • Discolored water
  • Foul odors

If you notice any of the above, schedule an appointment with our team of water heater installers near you. You don’t want to wait until the problem worsens and risk destroying a system that can be repaired. Do you have a different plumbing issue? Goodberlet Home Services also provides other plumbing repair services such as sewer repair, drain cleaning, and water softener installation.

Tank Water Heaters vs. Tankless Water Heaters

If you need a large supply of hot water, then you might want to consider the benefits of a tankless water heater. Although these systems cost more upfront, they offer many long-term benefits, including:

  • Longer lifespan (approximately 20 years).
  • Energy efficiency—water heats on-demand, allowing you to pay for only what you need.
  • Safety—these systems will operate only when you’re home.

The cost to repair a water heater will generally be determined the components that need replacing.  According to a HomeAdvisor.com study, the average cost to repair water heaters is $501.  Please note, this is for a repair of an existing unit and does not replace the entire unit.

Yes.  Generally, water heaters only have a few components that cause issues.    Small leaks can come from a faulty temperature and pressure relief valve (T&P), the connection point between unit and lines, or from the actual tank.

Heating elements in electric water heaters also go out on occasion.  Depending on the size of your tank, there can be 1 or 2 elements.

Technically, you can replace water heaters on your own.  However, most homeowners decide to call a licensed plumber to come to handle their water heater repairs or replacements.  Our experts have all the knowledge and tools immediately available to address your repair needs.  The last thing you want is 60 gallons of water flooding out of your tank and causing damage to your walls or falls.

No hot water can indicate a variety of issues.  Some minor; some major.

For electric heaters, this can indicate one of your electric heating elements went out.  Or, a power issue from internally or even at the main breaker.

For gas, a disturbance to the gas can cause the pilot light to go out.  If it was a gas shortage, re-igniting your pilot light is all it might take.

In general, water and metal tanks do not get along for the long-haul.  Eventually, the water can cause your tank to rust and eventually cause a leak.  Unfortunately, when this occurs, all the water leaves the tank flooding the area and you need a new unit.
