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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Thermostat Problems: A faulty thermostat can lead to water that’s too hot or not hot enough, indicating a need for adjustment or replacement.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.

The technician/plumber came by to determine what was needed to replace our water heater which was leaking. He gave what I think was a fair price to replace our heater and install the new one. We determined a date and time for the replacement which was accomplished to my satisfaction. We have found a plumbing company (Redfin) that I would be more than happy to recommend to my friends.
Our plumber, Ulie was great. Also our Customer Service representative was great too. I would highly recommend using Redfin.
Thomas was fantastic. Very polite, punctual and fixed both issues we were having. Redfin was honest and up front with pricing and continuing to help with other issues found during the repair process. We will definitely use them again when and if needed
We’ve used Redfin twice for plumbing issues at our home and they have been wonderful to work with each time. After the recent winter storm they were honest, upfront, and communicated well to get our issues fixed. The staff is awesome and the work is top notch. We will continue to call Redfin for our plumbing needs!
Redfin is amazing, they came out the same day I had called them to give me a free consultation as well as repaired what ever I needed! They did everything in a timely manner and was extremely professional. I would 100% recommend them to anyone that needs their plumbing work done!
Had an awesome experience with Redfin! They had everything they needed and was able to repair my heater with one stop. Very knowledgeable and professional.
Great company to work with. Did what they said they were going to do, on time, very professional. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a reputable plumbing company. They installed a water heater, repaired a line and installed emergency turn off valves.
Redfiin installed an exterior natural gas line to our outdoor generator. The work by Eddie was very professional, and the folks at Redfin were easy to work with for scheduling an estimate and the work itself. Maybe not the cheapest out there, but it’s worth the extra to make sure it’s done right. Would work with them again!
Eddie was very professional. He identified and fixed my problem quickly and did a good job explaining to me the root cause of the issue and how to avoid it again in the future. I would definitely recommend and use him again.
Thomas was extremely polite and professional. He took care of a really messy pipe clog for me! Also they had a great special on unclogging drain pipes. Highly recommend this company.
Had them install a new composite granite kitchen sink, disposal, and faucet. Very professional and fully informed me of all potential issues and costs prior to any work starting. Eddy and Thomas were both very professional in their trade skills and their actions. I would definitely use Redfin Plumbing again.
These guys are great! They took care of our hot water heater after the freeze. They are quick, professional, on-time, and reliable. Recommend.
Great people and great service at Red Fin Plumbing. They were very honest with the work that needed to be done. I highly recommend them. Great experience all around.
