    San Diego Water Heater Repair and Installation

    Water heater repair isn’t something that most people think about until there’s an emergency. Unfortunately, emergencies come at a high cost. If a poorly maintained water heater ends up rusting out, it can cause thousands of dollars in water damage. If the pressure release valve fails it can become a deadly projectile or explosive bomb. These are some extreme examples of what can happen – usually the water heater simply stops heating your water, and by the time that happens, it’s could be too late to repair it.

    If you’re lucky, it’s just a problem with the thermostat or heating element. We can usually fix those pretty quickly. Maybe you’ve got sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank due to a lack of unit flushing. In any case, when we check your water heater, we’ll let you know exactly what’s wrong and whether it’s worth fixing, or you’d be better off considering a new one. New water heaters are almost twice as efficient as the ones made just ten years ago. The savings on your water bill could be enough to justify the change.

    Signs of Water Heater Problems

    • No hot water
    • Inconsistent hot water
    • Sulfur smell from the tap
    • Popping noise coming from a tank style heater
    • Rusty water
    • Pooling water around the water heater

    Obviously, you’ll call us if you don’t have hot water, or if it isn’t consistently staying hot. But if you see any of the other signs, you should call us right away as well. A sulfur smell coming from your tap water is a sign that there is a bacterial colony growing in the sediment at the bottom of your tank. The bacteria isn’t the problem, the sediment is. If you have a gas water heater or an electric model with the heating element near the bottom of the tank, the sediment could be reducing the ability of your hater to warm the water. It could also be a sign that your sacrificial anode is running low.

    A popping noise coming from the tank is also a sign of sediment build up. Superheated bubbles in the sediment travel up into the water and cause an immediate boiling of the water and the subsequent popping sound. Rusty water is another bad sign. This usually indicates the failure of the sacrificial anode which has allowed the water to begin rusting the interior of the steel water heater. This could lead to rust through (which could be causing the pools of water beneath your tank.

    In any case, if you experience any of these warning signs, call us immediately to get a water heater inspection and repair.

    Water Heater Installation

    Emergency water heater installation is going to cost more than a scheduled one. Usually a rush job means the tech is going to be working overtime. It’s in your best interest to schedule your water heater install ahead of time. Water heater installations can be scheduled months in advance so you can get the exact model you want and don’t have to settle for what is currently in stock while saving a bundle on installation costs.

    We install standard storage style water heaters as well as tankless models from high-quality manufacturers, including American Standard, Takagi, Rinnai, A.O. Smith, State, Rheem, U.S. Craftmaster, Bradford White, Rudd, G.E., Whirlpool and more.
