Frequently Asked Questions
Common Water Heater Service Questions We Hear
How much does it cost to repair a water heater?
It all depends on what type of water heater it is. Electric water heaters usually cost between $400 and $800 to repair, while gas water heaters usually run from $550 to $900. Regular drain and flush maintenance visits may be considerably less if no repairs or part replacements are necessary. If needed, you will also need to account for the labor costs to cover the plumbing technician to install your water heater for you (don’t do this part yourself unless you are a certified and licensed plumber in the state of California).
What are the most common problems with water heaters?
Common problems with water heaters are leaks, sudden temperature fluctuations, and corrosion. To fix these problems, it is important to identify them. If the problem is a leak, it is important to find out where the leak is coming from. Sometimes leaks can come from pipes or valves that are under the tank. Clean the area using a dish soap solution. If there is corrosion buildup, use sandpaper to scrape it off of the surface of the water heater. If there is a sudden temperature fluctuation, clean the anode rod by scraping it. If you are not sure what to do, call your local plumber.
What would cause a hot water heater to stop working?
1) Overly aggressive water quality – this could be a result of a lack of a water softener, an old water softener, or too much soap being used.
2) Insufficient insulation from the outside environment – this is most often caused by poor insulation around the pipes or by not insulating the space where the heater is installed.
3) Damaged valve – this could happen if there’s been an issue with either freezing or overheating.
4) The hot water heater’s thermostat is faulty or broken – this will prevent the unit from reaching the appropriate temperature.
5) Tank is cracked or leaking – a cracked or leaking water heater tank is almost always not repairable and your unit will need to be replaced
In any of the cases mentioned above, your best bet is to contact a professional plumber to see if you can prevent a simply repair from turning into a full water heater replacement.
Can I install a water heater myself?
It is worth noting that installing gas water heaters is a task that should be left to professionals. Water heaters require a lot of knowledge and training to install properly. Professionals know how to deal with the safety hazards and risks associated with the installation of water heaters. They also have experience working at heights. And if something does go wrong, they will be equipped with the right tools and knowledge to correct it quickly.
Electrical safety is an important issue when dealing with any type of water heater installation. Calling on the services of a professional electrician will ensure that this process is done safely and efficiently. An incorrectly installed or maintained electrical connection can cause electrical fires which can produce deadly carbon monoxide (CO) gas; CO poisoning is often fatal. A professional will also know how to hook-up your new unit safely and securely while meeting all of your local code requirements. Most important, the professional will ensure that all of your local electrical and plumbing codes are met, so you don’t void any warranties
