Who Should I Call for Water Heater Repair!

Bone-chillingly cold shower? Scary looking sediment? Eerie noises? Water heaters issues can be horrifying. When you need to service your hot water heater, who you gonna call? If problems with your water heater are scaring you, you have multiple options…

Heating and Air Conditioning Companies

Why call a heating and air conditioning company when you have water heater troubles? If your water heater is a hybrid model, utilizing heat pump technology, there’s no one better than a heating and air conditioning company to service your water heating system. Hybrid models are quite different from those common 10 years ago, and most electrical and plumbing companies are not EPA certified to work on this style of water heater, which uses refrigerant gas.

Water Heater Not that New?
In the event your water heater needs to be repaired, heating and air conditioning companies  are in-the-know on electric and gas water heater troubleshooting, and also well-versed on working with in-direct and solar heated systems. With a host of experience from electrical to plumbing and wiring, HVAC technicians can read schematics and perform other tasks necessary for diagnosing what ails your system. Need a replacement? You can be assured of a properly-installed, adequately-sized new water heater, as many HVAC companies rely on NATE-certified professional technicians for this task. Changes in style are also typically not a problem for HVAC service companies, who routinely deal with oil, gas, electric, and solar power sources in servicing heating, cooling, and water heating equipment.

What about Plumbing Companies?
Plumbing companies are another option when you’re experiencing water heater issues. When is calling a plumber best? If there is no water coming from the taps of your home (and you paid your water bill on-time), calling a plumbing company may be a good idea.

How About Electrical Companies?
If you’re experiencing water heater issues and fear you need to replace your older water heater, an electrician may be a good person to call if you plan on changing water heater styles. For those going from gas to electric systems, or those with electric tank-style systems seeking to switch to an electric tankless model, electrical panel and possibly an electrical service upgrade may be necessary in order ensure a sufficient supply of electricity to safely power a newer water heater style.

How Do I Know if I Need a New Water Heater?

  • The need for frequent repairs.
  • A system more than 10 years old.
  • The base of your water heater tank is rusty.
