Water Heater Maintenance
Our team recommends scheduling an annual water heater flush to extend the life of the system. This can also help homeowners avoid costly water heater repairs. Regular tank-style water heaters hold and heat water on a continuous basis. As they age, and due to San Diego’s poor water quality, sediment can build up on the bottom of the tank. It is corrosive and eats away at the interior of the water heater. This can lead to burst tanks and larger problems. With annual maintenance, sediment is removed and the water heater continues to perform at peak efficiency.
How to Tell if Your Water Heater Needs Repair
Water heater repairs are a worthwhile option if the water heater is still within its warranty period. If regular water heater maintenance has been performed it should last far beyond its warranty. Here are some ways to know if your water heater needs repair.
Your water heater is making unusual noises
The pilot light keeps going out
You find standing water under the water heater
Your water isn’t getting hot
You notice your water heater randomly fluctuating between hot and cold water
Your water heater has been shutting off
How to Tell if Your Water Heater Needs to Be Replaced
Sometimes, the heating mechanism, or thermocouple, will fail, leading to hot water fluctuations or loss of hot water entirely. Water heater repairs for cases like this can usually be performed within the warranty period. But if the water heater is 10–12 years old, it will always be recommended that homeowners replace the system altogether.
Tank-style water heaters also have the potential to leak from the bottom and cause flooding and costly water damage. If the water heater is dripping from the bottom or is rusted, and it is over 12 years old, it’s time for a water heater replacement.
How Much Does a Water Heater Replacement Cost?
Water heater replacement costs vary. Uniform Plumbing Code is continually changing, so a water heater installed 10 years ago compared to one installed today will have different requirements. Part of our evaluation will be upgrading to the current code, including all permits. We will also ensure that all safety requirements are also up to code, such as earthquake strapping and stands.
We install only the highest quality Bradford White tank-style water heaters. Our team provides multiple options on-site and all estimates are provided up-front.
