Hot water is something that you need to ensure the comfort of your home. So, if your water heater is due for repairs, it’s crucial that you address any of the issues immediately.

We’re committed to going “Above and Beyond”™ for all of our clients, because we understand how a relaxing home environment plays such an important role in their overall happiness. We service Tampa, FL and the surrounding areas, including Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Clearwater, Dunedin, St. Petersburg, FL and more.
As a homeowner, it’s important to know how to detect a failing unit. Waiting to resolve these issues could turn what would have been a simple hot water heater repair into a complete replacement. The most common indicator that something is wrong; your water is not as warm as it should be. But there are also other things to look for, like rust-colored water, abnormal sounds through piping, foul-odors and leaks around the base of the heater.
If you’ve noticed any of these signs, never hesitate to call our professionals as soon as possible. Although it may not seem like a pressing issue at the moment, just imagine waking up on a cold morning eager to warm your body with a hot shower, only to be greeted with freezing cold water instead.
Troubleshooting Your Water Heater
- Drain Valves: Most water heater units come with a drain valve. These drains can become corroded or rusted and may leak or fail to drain the tank properly. Sometimes, even a something as simple as a drain cleaning can correct the problem.
- Heating Element: In an electric unit, the water is heated using an upper and lower heating element. For an electric unit, we check the elements to make sure they’re intact and haven’t burned through, which can cause a break in the rod.
- Burner: In a gas powered unit, we check the burner to make sure it isn’t clogged, which could increase the inefficiency of energy usage and lead to a lack of heat.
Many times, a simple hot water heater repair will suffice, but if you have a system that’s at least 10 years old, it may be necessary to have your unit replaced. The good thing is that nowadays they’re generally a lot more energy efficient, which will save you money in the long run.
Water Treatment Helps
Corrosion is the number one issue with water heater repairs. A water treatment system can go a long way toward eliminating or reducing the amount of sediment. This will, in turn, extend the life of your water heater.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
If you’re interested in even better energy savings, we also perform tankless water heater installations and repairs. While conventional units use an internal heating element and insulated tank to keep warm water on standby, tankless water heaters, on the other hand, provide instantaneous hot water only as it’s needed, which eliminates the need for storage tanks. This way, you’ll save money with tankless water heater installation, since they don’t produce the standby energy losses associated with standard models. Additionally, you’ll never run out of hot water since the water is heated to the proper temperature as it passes through the unit, where it will then flow through the piping and out your faucet.
With our flat-rate pricing, there aren’t any hidden costs and any additional expenses will be discussed with you so there are never any surprises. As long as you use 41 gallons of water or less each day, a tankless water heater installation can be up to 34% more energy efficient than traditional models. Moreover, ENERGY STAR® appliances typically save families close to $100 or more each year on utility bills. While the life expectancy of conventional units is normally about 10-15 years, a tankless water heater installation will, on the other hand hold up strong for more than 20 years.
