Water Heater Experts

Redfin Plumbing is the premier plumbing service in Houston, TX. Water heaters are vital to a functioning home. You might be tempted to fix your water heater on your own, but attempting to repair your water heater on your own could cost you thousands.

Even worse, fixing your water heater on your own could lead to serious physical injury and harm. Toxic chemicals, high-voltage electricity, and flammable gas lines are integral components to the functioning of a water heater but handling them on your own increases the risk to your home, health, and life.  If you’re having issues with your water heater, leave it up to us to evaluate and fix the problem. Our professionals have the years and expertise necessary to safely repair or replace your old water heater and carefully install a new one. We place your family’s safety as our top priority.

Houston Water Heater Repair

When it comes to water heaters, several common issues can lead to the need for repairs.

  1. Sediment Buildup: Over time, minerals like calcium and magnesium accumulate in the tank, especially in areas with hard water. This buildup can reduce the heater’s efficiency and potentially cause overheating.
  2. Corrosion: Water heaters are susceptible to rust and corrosion, particularly if the sacrificial anode rod, which is designed to corrode in place of the tank, isn’t replaced when needed.
  3. Thermostat Problems: A faulty thermostat can lead to water that’s too hot or not hot enough, indicating a need for adjustment or replacement.
  4. Heating Element Issues: In electric water heaters, the heating elements can burn out, resulting in no hot water. Gas water heaters can face problems with the burner.
  5. Leaks: Leaks can occur due to various reasons, including loose connections, corrosion, or cracks in the tank. They’re not only a repair issue but can also lead to property damage.
  6. Pressure Relief Valve Malfunction: This valve releases pressure if it gets too high inside the tank. If it’s not working correctly, it could pose a safety risk.
  7. Pilot Light or Ignition Problems: Gas water heaters rely on a pilot light or ignition system. If these fail, the water heater won’t produce hot water.

Addressing these issues promptly can prolong the life of your water heater and ensure it operates efficiently. Regular maintenance is key to spotting and fixing these problems early.

Gas vs. Electric Water Heaters:

Both gas and electric water heaters do the same thing: Heat the water in your home. However, there are many differences in how they operate. Differences between gas and electric water heaters include their power source, parts, installation requirements, performance, and operating costs. It is necessary to approach each water heater component, be it gas or electric, with safety, care, and attention to detail.

Both gas and electric water heaters have their advantages and disadvantages. While the argument over which is better comes down to personal preferences, you certainly need to consider which will work better for you when addressing your water heater problems. For example, both types have vastly different installation requirements. Suppose you’re looking to replace one kind with the other. In that case, you’ll need to factor in the extra cost of converting and accommodating your new water heater.
