Water Heater Repair, Installation and Replacement

Water Heater Repair and InstallationImagine standing in the shower and all of a sudden the water turns cold! Now think about all the things you do with hot water in your home. We rely on water heaters daily to wash our clothes and dishes, and provide warm water for showers. They are one of the most used appliances in the home, yet many homeowners neglect to check the functionality of their water heaters and lose track of how many years they have owned them. Ever wondered how to prolong the life of your water heater?

Did you know?

The average water heater, if properly maintained, can provide 40-50 gallons of fresh water in case of emergency. Forget about just filling up the bathtub, we’re talking serious amounts of fresh water during a hurricane or other natural disaster! Many times, for example during a power outage or a hurricane, the city’s water treatment facilities will be operating under strained conditions, so you’ll be thankful you can use up to 50 gallons from the heater itself. As for general information on hurricanes and plumbing? Check out this helpful guide.

High pressure, hard water and hot temperatures take their toll on appliances over the years. When your water heater is over 10 years old it is approaching the end of its run. We recommend getting it serviced once a year to eliminate any potential problems.

A rusty tank or a water heater leak can be the prelude to a total break down. Housing between 25 to 40 gallons of water, an unchecked traditional tank water heater can be a dam ready to burst and flood your home or garage.

Before a small problem grows into a bigger one, have a qualified tech from A-1 American Services check your water heater. Replacing a thermostat or flushing the tank can add years to its life span and keep your energy use within normal levels.

Consider Upgrading to a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless Water Heater RepairFollowing a flood from a broken water heater, some of our customers have decided to upgrade to a tankless water heater. The tankless water heater brings you hot water when you need it without use of a storage tank. We can remove your old existing unit and upgrade your home with a Takagi or Rinnai brand tankless.

Tankless water heaters are a great alternative to conventional hot water heaters because:

  • They can last almost twice as long as conventional water heaters
  • The negative effects of hard water are lower
  • Takes up less storage space
  • No danger of flooding
  • Uses less energy than conventional models
