Most of the parts on a water heater can be repaired or replaced except the tank itself, and unfortunately after the tank starts to rust through, there is no way to repair the water heater and replacement is the only option. We service and repaired both commercial and residential water heater problems in the Charlotte area.
Q: How Long Do Water Heaters last?
A: Tank Water Heaters only last about 10-15 years. If a Tank Water Heater is 10 years old or older it is like a bald tire. It’s better to replace it at your convenience than for it to start leaking at nights, weekends, Holidays, while not at home or out of town. If you are unsure of the condition, or how old your water tank is… Schedule Your Water Heater Service Today!
Q: Why Does the Relief Valve Keep Popping on My Water Tank?
A: There could be a number of reasons why your water heaters relief valve keeps popping off. As part of our Water Heater Service, we start at the source by checking your water pressure, and making sure you have an expansion tank some on your cold water line. It’s very common to need pressure reducing valves or a new pressure relief valve on hot water heaters.
Q: What if My Water Heater is Leaking?
A: A leaking hot water heater can be dangerous and VERY costly! Turn the gas or the electrical breaker off to the water heater, then turn the cold water supply valve off where it enters the water heater. It will be on the cold water line supplying the water heater. After you have this done, connect a garden hose to the drain on the bottom of the tank and run the hose to the outside of your home. Open drain and hot water at the nearest plumbing to drain the water heater, and Contact Us immediately!
