Even the best water heater units require repair along the way. The issue could be anything: no hot water, sediments chilling in the tank floor, rusty-smelling water, a water heater that makes noise. You name it, your water heater can experience it, especially if it’s eight to ten years old.
But just because your water heater is experiencing issues, it doesn’t automatically mean you have to replace it. Sometimes, a little repair can go a long way for your unit. But instead of repairing the unit yourself, leave the job to the trusted experts in Modesto, CA.

Water Heater Repair
According to a study from HomeAdvisor.com, an average water heater repair job can cost $500, with most homeowners spending between $200 to $800 for a single repair job. But as with any other appliance, there are other costs that play into the total bill.
Some of these factors include:
- New building codes
- Supply pipes
- Air flow systems
- Compliance issues
Water heater repair costs can vary greatly depending on whether parts need to be replace or not, as well as how long labor will take. To find out how much your repair job will cost, call us first to determine if your unit is still under warranty. Our plumbing technician team can even provide quotes (or at least a general range) right over the phone. Simply send us photos of your water heater tank and as well as your home or business address where the repair is needed.
Water Heater Installation
The average lifespan of water heaters range between 8 to 12 years. Once they reach the tenth year, however, your unit will most like have issues. Even if your unit hasn’t reached its tenth year, your water heater may require repair or replacement due to the constant wear and tear.
When it’s time to replace your water heater, we discourage doing it yourself. Initially, a DIY job seems like a more affordable option, but in the long run, you may spend more money due to wrong installation or materials.
Instead, think of your water heater as an investment. You want your new unit to last for years to come. So, have our handymen do the job for you instead. We’ll properly install the unit for you.
If you need assistance with the selection of your new water heater, our Modesto water heater team can help. We’ll assess your water heater needs, the location of your residential or commercial property, and your budget to determine the best unit for you.

Water Heater Replacement
The Modesto Water Heater Pros can help you choose a unit to replace your current water heater with. We consider the following:
Size. To provide your home or business with enough hot water and to maximize efficiency, you need to buy a properly sized unit. Otherwise, you might buy a model that doesn’t fit the location.
Energy efficiency. You want a water heater that is both budget-friendly and always on top when it comes to performance. If energy-efficiency is a priority, go for a tankless water heater instead of the traditional gas and electric water heater units.
Fuel source. What is your home’s source of fuel? Is it electric or gas? Instead of worrying that you don’t have gas lines or an electric grid, shop for a water heater that suits your home’s power source. Consult with our technicians to learn more.
Heater flow rate. How much water should your heater produce? Make sure your new model produces enough to meet the needs of the people using the water heater. Also, ensure that your chosen unit has a good regeneration capacity to do this task repeatedly.
Apart from the selection of your unit, our Modesto team will also do the installation for you. We have the tools to properly install your new water heater. Trust us to clean up after ourselves, too.

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
