Water Heater Repair

Technician Fixing Water Heater | Water Heater Repairs Clearwater | St PetersburgHot 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.

At Midway Services, the last thing we want to see is your life inconvenienced, even for just one day, because of a faulty hot water heater. 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.

For Your Peace of Mind

At Midway Services, we take your peace of mind very seriously. Before we hire a technician at Midway Services, they must pass a nationwide criminal background check and a drug screening.

Midway Services technicians arrive within their scheduled time, driving a Midway Services vehicle, wearing a Midway Services uniform and sporting a Midway Services ID badge.  You can rest assured we’ll leave our work areas neat and tidy, and treat your home and furnishings as we would our own.

Remember, we provide services to customers in Tampa, FL and its surrounding areas, including Hillsborough County, Pinellas County, Clearwater, Dunedin, St. Petersburg, FL and more. Schedule your appointment today for your water heater installation or repairs!

"Midway services is great. I called in a panic because I thought I killed my garbage disposal. I called in the morning and by the afternoon we had Felix come out. He fixed our garbage disposal and leaky pipe. He was very knowledgeable, experienced, and friendly. He took great care not to make a mess. He wore boot covers as to not track in dirt. He made what I thought was going to be an awful experience a pleasant one. Not the cheapest but worth every penny! Thank you Suzanne (dispatch) Felix and Midway Services!"

We needed our a/c serviced at 4am and Midway had someone out within the hour. He was friendly, informative, and thorough. Luckily it was a minor thing and we were very pleased with three service AND the cost..... so much so that we have contracted with Midway to service or a/c twice a year and our hot water heater once a year at a cost that is only a few dollars more annually than my Amazon prime account. So worth it!

"I have requested Shane as my tech and Midway has gone out of there way to make him available. Jeff has also been involved in resolving my A/C issues. Midway's techs, operators and senior officers have gone above the normal customer service regarding my A/C units. I own a large laundromat and have two large units that require scheduled maintenance and work. I am please with Midways service."

Had several bids to replace our entire HVAC system that crashed. Midway Services gave a great price and advice on the system we needed. Installed in 1-day and with extreme professionalism. We could not have been more satisfied. Their Techs were amazing and even cleaned the house before leaving. I was surprised that they did not even break for lunch so we got them pizza which they grabbed from time to time as they kept working. What a crew! Highly reccomend Midway and, in fact, we will be using them for the remodel of our bathroom and enlargement of our bedroom.

I have been using Midway Services for about 6 or 7 years. They have always been professional, responsive and good communicators. They respond quickly to needs of their customers every time. I have recommended them to several people. I give them an A+++

Midway Services is my call to outstanding work and professionalism by a staff highly trained to repair, remodel, replace and improve home ownership. After 26 years of owning and diligently caring for our home, it just began needing more assistance. A new hot water heater, toilets, tired bathrooms, hard water deposits, outlets that shut off, and the list went on. In the past seven months I have had the experience to work with Midway employees who have entered our home as professional members of a company they take pride in working for. Their work is outstanding. I can hardly wait for them to begin my kitchen remodel! I am proud to say Midway Services is a company I would highly recommend. Their customer satisfaction and work ethic is present every time a service person steps up to the door with Midway Services on that shirt.

We had an emergency with our AC unit one evening and Midway Services sent out HVAC service Dom L. He was fantastic! He temporarily fixed the problem so our AC worked that night until the part came in a few days later. Dom sat with us and gave us all of our options with prices. He made us feel very comfortable in choosing the best option for us (even since our unit was a quite few years old.) He was very upfront and honest on our options and let us choose the best route for us. We appreciated his honesty. We had some water leaking a few days later and we requested Dom back and he fixed the leak and replaced all the new parts that came in. He worked very hard and cleaned over and beyond (it was more cleaning that he thought.) He even took our wet rugs (we had in our garage) out to dry! He went over and beyond. He was very knowledgeable, hard working, kind and explained everything to us thoroughly. We would highly recommend Midway Services to everyone. They are very reliable, hard working, honest and Dom was exceptional!
