Prompt Service for Water Heater Repair
A malfunctioning water heater may be repaired by replacing the element that isn’t working properly. Our Benicia and Vallejo water heater repair technicians can inspect your water heater to determine why it isn’t working and replace the damaged component.
We Are Often Able To Get Water Heaters Working Again By Replacing:
- Heating elements
Proper maintenance can help reduce water heater breakdowns. We offer repair and service for all major brands and types of water heaters. If your water heater breaks down suddenly and you can’t wait for service during normal business hours, we offer emergency plumbing service after hours for an additional charge.
How Does Sediment Affect A Water Heater?
Overtime your water heater can start to accumulate sediment in its tank. But why does this happen? The water that is stored in your water heater contains minerals. As the water remains in the tank those minerals and other dirt and debris will develop into sediment which then settles inside the water heater, typically at the bottom of the tank. This sediment will negatively affect your water heater, potentially leading to a lack of hot water, inconsistencies in the temperature of your water, an obstructed drain valve, a leak, and even an early breakdown. By regularly flushing your water heater, you can rid the tank of the sediment buildup. However, we typically recommend consulting with a professional plumber to handle this task, especially if the buildup has become severe.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
While many homeowners prefer to repair a broken water heater, this is not always possible in every situation. In some situations, repair is not the best way to deal with a water heater problem. For example, if your water heater is damaged beyond repair, leaking, or beyond its expected life, replacement may be necessary. You can look for signs that replacement may be the best option.
It May Be Time To Replace Your Water Heater When It Is:
- More than 10 years old
- Higher utility bills
- Rusty looking water
- A metallic taste to the hot water
- Loud knocking or rumbling noises
At Benicia Plumbing, Inc., we focus on delivering the right level of service for every customer. We won’t sell something you don’t need. However, if replacement is the best option, we will advise you and explain why repair isn’t the best solution to your unique problem.
Choosing a New Water Heater for Your Home
When it is time for a new water heater, you have options that include standard water heaters with a storage tank and tankless water heaters. We can explain your options and provide an estimate for the cost of a new water heater. Our Benicia and Vallejo water heater installation technicians will help you choose a water heater with the right capacity to meet your family’s hot water needs and the features you want at a price that will fit your budget.
What Are The Benefits Of A Tankless Water Heater?
- A consistent supply of hot water on demand
- A smaller size that takes up less space
- Lifespan that is up to twice as long as water heaters with a tank
- Less energy used since water is heated as it is used
