Water Heater Repair

Few things are worse than waking up and finding out that you don’t have hot water in the house. Although a cold shower will definitely wake you up, it’s probably not what you wanted.

Common water heater issues we can repair for you:

Plumber fixing a broken hot water heater

No Hot Water

When you have no hot water, that means that either your thermostat is malfunctioning or there is a fatal problem with your unit. It is recommended to call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing to take care of the repairs. If you experience this issue with a tankless water heater, the heating element may be damaged and you need a plumbing expert to make proper adjustments or replacements.

Leaking Storage Tank

A tank leak is one of the most common and frustrating issues with water heaters. This problem can result from a variety of reasons, including a broken drain valve, internal corrosion, excess pressure, sediment build-up, or a disabled gas pilot light. Unfortunately, if there’s one problem, others may exist as well.

Discolored Water

This is usually a sign that the storage tank is rusting and corroding. You most likely need a new anode rod, and a water heater replacement may be the best option. Either way, we at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing can provide expert advice and repairs to clean up your hot water.

Water Heater Installation and Replacement

When tank water heaters fail, they can potentially leak 30 to 60 gallons of water into your basement in a short amount of time. When this happens, the cost of a traditional water heater replacement would be pennies compared to the cost of the water damage. If you are noticing the serious issues we addressed above, especially if the unit is over 15 years old, it may be time to consider replacing that aged traditional water heater with a new storage tank or tankless water heater today! At Benjamin Franklin Plumbing, we can correctly install either type of water heater as the first one of a new home or as  a necessary replacement.

Additionally, we offer annual sediment flushes to extend the life of your water heater and preventative maintenance to ensure that your home is safe from dirty water, flooding, and high expenses.
