Water Heater Repair & Replacement
Over the years, your water heater may experience one or more common issues that require attention or repair, and as it nears the end of its useable lifespan, you will start to notice a decline in efficiency and performance.
Whether you choose to upgrade your water heater to save money on the cost of energy, meet the rising demands of your growing family, or because it has stopped working, Blake Brothers is here to help. Our skilled technicians will help you choose the right size and type of appliance to meet your needs and complete the water heater installation expertly and efficiently.
A tank water heater is designed to last a certain amount of time – usually between 8 and 12 years. In order to last this long, however, it will need to be properly maintained and repaired when there are signs of a problem.
Call the experts of Blake Brothers for all of your water heater repair and maintenance needs. From water heater installation to water heater repair/maintenance, our experts will do everything to ensure your unit lasts as long as it is rated for, and is as efficient as possible to keep your energy costs low.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair
The best time to upgrade your water heater is before you wake up to a freezing cold shower or have a basement full of water. You can avoid these disasters by watching for the signs that your water heater is failing and calling Blake Brothers Brothers for expert water heater installation:
The average lifespan of hot water heaters is 10 years, around which time you should consider upgrading your water heater with a new, energy-efficient model. If you are unsure of the age of your water heater tank, you can find it listed as part of the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker. The code will start with a letter followed by a series of numbers that will help you determine the month and year your tank was made using the following method:
- Determine the placement of the letter in the alphabet. For example, C is the third letter and represents the third month, which is March.
- The two numbers that follow the letter are the last digits of the year of production. For example, a serial number that begins with C10 would have been manufactured in March of 2010.
Constant exposure to water and the expansion and contraction of the metal will eventually take a toll on your water heater. The time to replace the unit is at the first sign of a leak while it is still small enough to not cause any damage to the surrounding area. Perform a visual inspection around the base of the tank on a monthly basis, and if you see puddling, call a plumber for water heater services to assess the condition of the unit.
Shortage of Hot Water
As your Huntsville household needs change you may find that your current hot water heater can no longer keep up with the demands of your family. Blake Brothers Brothers can help you find the perfect solution, whether that is a larger, traditional unit or a tankless hot water heater.
Inferior Water Quality
If the hot water pouring from your tap is rust-colored, has an odd smell, or you can see visible flakes of metal, your tank may be corroded on the inside and it will need to be replaced as soon as possible.
New or unusual sounds emanating from your hot water heater may warrant a call to a plumbing company for an expert diagnosis. Noises such as banging, clanging, or rumbling can signal a serious issue that may require a need for a hot water heater repair or a new water heater.
