Water Heater Repair & Service

Maintenance can help extend the life of a water heater. But that doesn’t really help you once your water heater is broken, does it? 

Many plumbing companies jump straight to replacing a water heater. They don’t want to be held liable for additional repairs. Our staff of experienced plumbers will help you understand your options and let you make the best decision for your family.

No high-pressure sales. 

In many cases, water heater replacement is the most economical solution for you in the long-run. Sometimes it is truly your only option. Either way, we aim to inform and educate our customers, rather than sell to you.

Water Heater Repair, Greenville SC

There are several items on a water heater that can be repaired. These things don’t call for a complete replacement. 

T&P Valve

This valve is meant to relieve pressure in the tank when it builds too high. So a little bit of water leaking from the top of the tank, from this valve, is perfectly okay. 

Constant leaks from the valve might be a sign that either the valve is failing or your homes water pressure is too high. Both are relatively easy fixes that do not require replacing your water heater.

Heating Elements

On electric water heaters, it is possible that one or both of your heating elements could go bad. Depending on the age and condition of the unit, a full replacement may be recommended. 

Thermocoupling

On gas water heaters, a common problem is the pilot light not staying lit. This is a sign of a bad thermocoupling. Part of the pilot assembly, this is a safety device so it is important to address issues.

Your plumber will access the age and condition of your unit and help you decide if the thermocoupling can be replaced or if the issue is more serious.

Leaks

Depending on where your water heater is leaking and how severely, a full water heater replacement may be necessary. A leak can be as serious as the bottom of the tank rusting out or as simple as a loose connection.


Water Heater Service Inspection

If you have concerns about the age, condition, or issues with your water heater a service inspection is a good idea. Our diagnostic fees are the lowest in the area, so don’t hesitate to have us come out for a consultation.

  • What is the age of your water heater?
  • Is water getting hot enough?
  • How long has it been since your water heater tank was flushed?
  • How long does it take for hot water to get to your furthest fixture?
  • Where is your water heater located?
  • Does your water heater have an expansion tank?
  • What is the water pressure in your house?

Water Heater Installation, Greenville SC

Greenville is a special place for water heater installations. We have uniquely high water pressure here, due to our geography.

We don’t do any new water heater installations without first checking the water pressure in your house. High water pressure may need remediation with the installation of a PRV or pressure reducing valve.

Water heater installation also include an expansion tank. This is a new plumbing code requirement, but it is also a good idea. An expansion tank is there to catch overflow created from high tank pressure. 

It also acts as a little hot water reserve to help boost your system.

Recirculating Pumps for Better Hot Water

If it takes a while for hot water to get to your far away fixtures, consider a recirculating pump. This system upgrade gives you the luxury of nearly instant hot water anywhere in your home.

Tankless Water Heater Q&A

Tankless Water Heater Installation Greenville SC
Tankless Water Heater Installation Greenville SC

Q: Should I switch to tankless?

A: That depends. I know! It’s so unsatisfying as an answer. 

The reality is that tankless technology has come a long way in recent years. Still, compared to traditional water heaters it is a baby. 

Educate yourself about the pros and cons before making a decision. If anyone gives you a knee-jerk ‘yes’ or ‘no’, they are trying to sell you something. Run the other way!

Q: Will a tankless water heater save me money?

A: Probably not. A tankless system still costs at least double a normal water heater installation in most cases. Unless there are extenuating circumstances, you won’t save money up-front.

Q: Is tankless technology a big energy saver?

A: Again, that depends. This time it depends mostly on your habits. If you are interested in tankless because of the “endless hot water” opportunity – you might be using more water and energy than before by increased usage.

The reality is that most of the savings comes from the energy it takes a traditional tank water heater to keep all those gallons of water hot 24/7, so it is ready for you to use. 

With a tankless water heater, you don’t have that constant heating. Instead, water is heated as needed. In most cases, the energy savings are small enough that it takes years to recoup the up-front cost.


Q: It sounds like you are trying to talk me out of a tankless water heater. What gives?

A: We aren’t at all! We have a team of plumbers specially trained in tankless water heater installations. If you want tankless, we are more than happy to help you. 

Still, we aim first to help our customers make the best decisions for their family, home, and wallet. In many cases, we can’t in good conscious make the recommendation to go to tankless.

There are pros and cons to any major equipment purchase. No product is perfect! So if a customer is currently using an electric tank and would need to get a new gas line run to install a tankless heater, we are upfront and honest about that.

We also like to remind people that if you are used to your water heater still giving you hot water during a power outage (in the case of gas users), remember that tankless uses both gas and power. So no hot water when the power is out!

The best use-cases for tankless water heaters are:

  • High-use customers who would otherwise need to install a large-capacity commercial water heater.
  • Older homes where the existing water heater location is no longer usable due to increased tank sizes.
  • Users who want a high degree of control over their energy usage.

One last thing to keep in mind about the tank vs tankless water heater debate is this: 

Tank water heaters have optional yearly maintenance that is fairly easy for a homeowner to complete. Tankless water heaters have mandatory maintenance that will need to be completed by a qualified professional.
