We understand that when your water heater calls it quits, you want a company that responds quickly to resolve the problem.

We provide service, repair and installation of hot water tanks that are fueled by electric, gas and propane.

Should your water heater need to be replaced, we can usually install it the same or the following day. We are able to make any changes needed to the water supply, electrical and gas to accommodate the installation of you new hot water tank.

Common Water Heater Issues

Common issues that can generally be repaired:

  • Leaking drain valve

  • Leaking piping (Cold water supply in or hot water feed out)

  • T&P Valve leaking or stuck

  • No hot water

  • Hot water not lasting as long as it did before (Such as water use to last 2 or 3 showers and now only last for 5 minutes in the shower before going cold.)


If the tank starts to leak on your water heater then your water heater is irreparable and must replaced.


Life Expectancy

Hot water tanks have an average life expectancy of 10 to 15 years. While this is the average, some may last less than 6 years while others may last 25 years. There are a few key factors that affect the life of your water heater.


The three most important factors in the service life are:

  • Quality of the unit itself 

  • Whether or not it was properly installed (if the tank was installed incorrectly, it may have a shorter service life)

  • How well it is maintained and your water quality (lack of maintenance can reduce the life of your water heater especially if your water is excessively corrosive or contains large amounts of sediment)


When should a hot water tank be replaced or repaired?

If it is 10 years old or more, it may be best to replace the unit vs. fixing it. Once the unit is 15 years old or more we highly recommend that you consider replacement as opposed to having it repaired. 

Should you have your hot water tank replaced because it is old even if it is still working?

The answer to this question is generally no, but there are two exceptions to this rule. The first exception is if it is located somewhere in your home where it springing a leak could cause extensive water damage. If this is the case for you, then you may want to have it replaced and if possible relocated to a location where sudden failure would not cause extensive damage to your home. The second reason to replace it is because of its age. If you are worried it may fail or stop working soon and don't want to be inconvenienced by a sudden failure. If you don't fall into on of these two exceptions then it is generally recommended to just wait for the water heater to fail or malfunction before having it replaced.

During the installation of your new water heater the following should be checked and taken into consideration:

  • The water pressure for the incoming cold-water should be checked. Most water heater manufactures recommended that the incoming water pressure to be the water heater be less than 80 psi. If your water pressure is more than 80 psi then it is recommended that a pressure reducing valve be installed. 

  • The incoming cold water supply should be examined to determine whether or not the expansion tank is required for the installation if one is not already present and in good working order. Water systems that have a check valve, pressure reducing valve and/or a back flow valve installed somewhere in the cold water supply of your home will require an expansion tank to be installed for the thermal expansion of the water heated and stored in the hot water tank.

  • The location where your water heater is to be installed should be checked to determine if a drain pan and drain pipe are required by code.

  • All wiring for your water heater should be checked to verify that it is in good working order and is up to code. 

  • During the installation of gas or propane fueled water heaters the vent should be checked to make sure it is sized correctly and in good condition. 


Of course, throughout the life of your water heater requires some maintenance, service and repairs to keep it going and providing you with a steady supply of hot water. One of the best things you can do is make sure it gets all the recommended maintenance that the manufacturer suggests. When one's equipment is maintained it has a tendency to be more reliable and last longer. The same is true with hot water tanks.


Many manufacturers suggest something similar to the follow for maintaining your water heater:

Once per year for gas and propane water heaters: 

  • Inspect the vent system

  • Burner operation and inspection

  • Combustion chamber inspection for scaling and soot

  • Clean the air intake filter

  • Temperature pressure relief valve test

  • Anode Rod inspection 

  • Flush water from the heater drain valve, once per year to remove sediment

  • Thoroughly check for signs of leaks


Once per year for electric water heaters

  • Inspect the heating elements

  • Temperature pressure relief valve test

  • Anode Rod inspection

  • Flush water from the heater drain valve, once per year to remove sediment

  • Thoroughly check for signs of leaks

For those that don't have time or don't feel comfortable performing the maintenance themselves we can perform all necessary maintenance and service for you.
