Homeowners rely on our hot water supply throughout their day – from showers in the morning to running the dishwasher after dinner. So when your water heater breaks down, it’s an urgent matter. We provide expert installation and repair of residential and commercial hot water heaters.

Whatever fits the needs of your family.

How long should my water heater last?

A residential hot water heater typically lasts six to thirteen years. If you’re finding that you’re hot water supply is not as reliable as it used to be if your tank is leaking or dripping, or if the tank is making unusual noises, that’s a good sign that your water heater has reached the end of its life expectancy.

Can't I just install my water heater myself?

 

Not sure if you need a residential plumber for your hot water tank issue? Because a hot water heater is so crucial to the functioning of your home, it’s important that it be installed and repaired correctly, and that you select the appropriate water heater for your needs and specifications. This requires a skilled, experienced residential plumber, and is not a time for do-it-yourself fixes. A licensed plumber will also be well versed in the permits and local codes in your area.

Signs Your Water Heater May Need Replacement or Repair

  1. It’s getting old: Your hot water heater can be expected to last 6 to 13 years. If it’s an older unit and it’s having problems, you may want to opt for replacement instead of repair.
     

  2. There is rust in your water: It’s possible that your water heater is rusting, which could lead to a leak. Discolored water can have other causes, however. An assessment can determine the source of the problem.
     

  3. It’s creating noise: Over time, sediment can build up in your hot water tank. The noise may sound like clanking, popping or rumbling. We can investigate to determine a solution.
     

  4. It’s leaking onto the floor: As mentioned above, rust in a hot water heater can eventually lead to leaks, and could warrant replacement. What appears to be a leak in your hot water heater could actually be a leak in your pipes, however.
     

  5. It’s just not working very well: If you’ve noticed a reduction in your hot water supply, it may be a problem with your hot water heater. We can help determine the cause and the best course of action.
