Expert Water Heater Replacement and Installation
Most water heaters are built to run for about 10 years, though that timeline can be longer or shorter depending on the quality of the equipment and how well it was cared for over the years. The bottom line is that you’ll need a new water heater at some point in the future, and when you do, our team is here to help.
There are numerous benefits to a new water heater installation, including:
- Better energy efficiency
- Reduced need for repairs
- Lower operating costs
- Possible access to more modern features
Be on the lookout for any signs of trouble with your water heater, like a lack of hot water when you need it or water that tastes, looks or smells unusual. Our team will be more than happy to send a technician out to your Fort Worth home to inspect your system and let you know whether it makes sense to try to repair it first before jumping straight to replacement, as this can often help you save money.
If repairing the equipment would not be possible or cost-effective, we’ll help you choose a suitable water heater replacement. We offer both electric and gas varieties to suit your home’s requirements. We’ll be sure to work within your budget as well.
Top-Notch Water Heater Repair in Forth Worth
If you turn your tap and no hot water comes from it—or if you run out of hot water before you’re finished with your shower—your unit’s heating element(s) may have failed or is in the process of failing. Oftentimes the cure for water heater woes lies in heating element replacement.
Some of the most common water heater repairs we make include:
- Replacement of failed heating elements
- Replacement of valves
- Anode rod replacement
- Flushing of storage tank
Temperature pressure valve replacement may be indicated when there are fluctuations in the temperature of your hot tap water. This valve helps regulate water temperature, so water that’s too hot or too cold may be a sign that this valve needs to be replaced.
Anode rod failure can result in water heater repair calls. The anode rod’s function is to protect your water heater from rust formation via electrolysis—attracting rust and other contaminants to it to prevent your water storage tank from interior corrosion. If this rod fails, your tank can begin to rust, which can lead to the buildup of sediment and rust, and eventually, the presence of fractures and cracks that can cause leaks.
Rusty-looking water coming through the hot water tap can indicate corrosion in the tank itself. Foul-smelling water may be an indicator of bacteria in the tank. Both of these problems may be addressed by having our team flush the storage tank.
