Need to Replace Your Water Heater?

Is your water heater leaking? Has the tank already burst? A water heater leak can lead to a big mess if it isn’t taken care of in a timely manner. Not only can the unit leak all over your floor, but it can also burst and create further damage. If you suspect a leak, your unit may be corroded from sediment and mineral buildup. This often happens if untreated hard water enters the tank. To avoid this problem, we recommend flushing your tank at least once a year.

Give your Valley plumber a call to get the problem resolved fast. We will make sure to get an experienced technician out to your home as soon as possible so you don't have to deal with an even bigger problem. We understand replacing a water heater can be a big undertaking. That’s why we present our customers with as many options as possible. We will first check to see if your water heater can be repaired before ever replacing it.

Is Your Water Heater Causing High Electric or Gas Bills?

As your water heater ages, it will tend to use more and more power. Often, when an older unit shows signs of trouble, the most practical choice is to just have it replaced. We offer same-day unit replacements in all emergency cases. Make sure to let us know what is going on with your water heater, and we will dispatch a technician as quickly as possible to check out the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why do we run out of hot water so quickly?

Running out of hot water can be caused by a few different things:

  1. When homes are built, builders try to estimate the size water heater that is needed.  Sometimes the water heater is just too small for the amount of use it is getting.
  2. If you live in an area with lots of sediment in the water, you could have a sediment buildup.  The buildup will accumulate at the bottom of your water heater and decrease the efficiency of your water heater by insulating the burner in the unit.  If there is enough sediment in the tank, it will also decrease the amount of water it can hold.
  3. Thermostat settings:  Sometimes it is as simple as the thermostat got bumped and it is now set on too low of a setting.  Make sure to read the manufacturer's recommendation so you don’t turn it up so high that it can scald your family.
  4. Remember, the colder the water coming into the tank, the longer it takes to warm up.  In the winter, you may need to turn up your water heater to combat the temperature change.

Age, size, hardness of water, and usage are all things to consider when looking at why your water heater is running out of hot water so fast.

Q: What causes our water heater to make loud rumbling noises?

Loud rumbling noises are normally due to the sediment buildup in your tank.  As the sediment settles to the bottom of your tank it then acts as an insulator between the heating element and the water.  It can cause the sediment to start to bubble or boil.  This can cause damage to your tank over time because of the amount of heat being held within that layer.
