Water Heater Repair, Installation & Replacement

Water heaters are an important part of your residential or commercial plumbing system, but one that is easy to forget about. Water heaters are your home’s silent workhorse. Your water heater is working constantly to keep you and your family going, providing you with hot water in your showers and sinks, the dishwasher, washing machine, and more. Most of the time, your water heater maintains its many responsibilities so silently you may forget it’s there—until something goes wrong. When something does go wrong with your water heater, you are likely to experience an icy blast in the shower, greasy dishes, and laundry that just won’t get clean.

Regular maintenance can help keep your water heater in working order and may even increase its life. However, most water heaters only last about 10 years, even with regular maintenance. If you have lived in your Whiteland home for more than 10 years and have not replaced your water heater, you should contact Plumb Doctor today to learn more about our water heater replacement and installation services.

How to Know When Your Water Heater Needs Replacement or Repair

It can be difficult to know when your water heater needs some maintenance before it’s too late. This is just one reason why it’s a good idea to schedule regular maintenance with a professional plumber at least once a year. This way you can avoid the inconvenience of waking up to a chilly house and no hot water in the shower. However, there are several signs you can watch out for that may indicate a malfunctioning water heater.

Signs Your Water Heater May Need Attention

  • No hot water: if your hot water suddenly stops working, or if your water isn’t getting as hot as normal, this is a sure sign that your water heater needs some help.
  • Rust-colored water: As your water heater ages, it may begin to rust from the inside. As this happens, minerals and other sediment can start to build up in your water heater’s tank, causing your home’s water to develop a cloudy appearance and metallic taste. If you notice these signs, the water heater tank is probably deteriorating from the inside-out and should be replaced immediately.
  • Unusual noises: if your water heater is making unusual and excessive clanking, rumbling, and popping noises, you should schedule an appointment with a plumber immediately. While it’s normal for some water heater models to make small noises, excessive or strange sounds may be a sign that there is a buildup of sediments or minerals, or it could even be a sign that your water heater is about to burst. If you notice strange sounds coming from your water heater, you should call Plumb Doctor.
  • Leaking: If you notice water collecting on the floor around your water heater, this could mean one of two things: 1) Your water heater is leaking from its pressure relief valve or other settings, and a simple valve replacement will do. 2) There is a crack in the tank, and a replacement is likely necessary. In both scenarios, you should contact Plumb Doctor right away.
