Water Heater Repair
Whatever problems you’re having with your water heater, there’s a good chance it doesn’t have to be replaced just yet. Water heater repair may be an option, even if the heater’s leaking, won’t stay lit or is failing to keep water up to temperature. If you’re having any kind of problem with your water heater, it’s a good idea to have it checked right away.
Town & Country Plumbing offers quick, inexpensive water heater repair for units of all models and sizes. Our goal is to get your water heater back up and running fast, without having to replace it and without breaking the bank.
We can diagnose and repair almost any water heater problem:
Water leaks: Water can leak from your heater at several points. Water supply lines may need tightening or replacement, or your temp/pressure valve may need service. Sometimes leaking water indicates higher than normal pressure, in which case thermal expansion may be the cause.
Thermal expansion: In some homes, pressure increases within the system as the water heater turns on, causing water to heat and expand. This is called thermal expansion, and can eventually lead to damaged water lines and fixtures if left unchecked. Read more about thermal expansion here.
Pilot light problems: If you’re pilot light won’t stay lit, it could be a problem with the fuel line, ventilation, thermocouple or a number of other causes. In most cases, the problem can be diagnosed and resolved quickly, depending on the circumstances.
Temperature problems: If your heater’s failing to keep water up to temperature, or working harder to do so, sometimes a simple adjustment or some routine maintenance can restore it to proper working order. Flushing it out to remove sediment, for example, can make a big improvement in the heater’s overall performance.
Low water pressure: Unusually low hot water pressure may indicate a problem with your water heater. A thorough inspection of the heater should reveal the problem, which in many cases, turns out to be an obstruction in a water supply line or one of the heater’s inlets/outlets.
