Hot water is such a part of your life that you don’t even notice it’s there and likely don’t think about where it comes from. But when it’s gone, you’ll know right away and act fast to get it back up and running. Water heaters are built to last, but over time they do wear out and they’re a big expense—so you want to choose wisely. We can help you navigate the selection process and find a water heater that takes your usage habits and family size into consideration.
A new water heater can present a significant expense, which is why a repair should be explored before a decision is made to replace it. We’ll carefully inspect your water heater to identify any issues before making a recommendation. In some cases, a simple repair can restore hot water back to your home. In other situations, while a repair may be technically possible, the extent of service required, or the age of the unit may make replacing your water heater more sensible. We’re always happy to thoroughly explain your options, and any recommendations, when it comes to water heater repair versus replacement.
“Fix & Flow was extremely professional, courteous, conscientious, and made sure the job was done to perfection. The tankless water heater they installed is awesome. I don’t want to get out of the shower!!”
“Wow. I am beyond impressed with Fix & Flow! We’ve had the worst time with a heater that was installed incorrectly 3 years ago. We had to replace the heater but it was well worth it. They were responsive, professional, and thorough. I am glad they were recommend to us & we will do the same from this point forward!”
“Excellent service. Anthony was here on time and worked quickly. Installed a water heater and pressure valve. They charge a fair price, no bait and switch or addon surprises. Cleaned up the work area and the craftsmanship was excellent. Would highly recommend them.”
Aside from performing water heater installation and making water heater repairs, one key to maximizing the life of your water heater is ensuring that it’s properly maintained. For a conventional water heater, this includes flushing it out at least once a year. This is important because sediment tends to build up within the tank over time, settling on the bottom of the tank. If this sediment isn’t periodically removed, it could rust through the bottom of the tank, leading to premature failure (not to mention potential water damage). You’ll also want to be sure to check the pressure release valve and inspect the anode rods periodically.
Water heater maintenance isn’t just important for conventional water heaters, but tankless water heaters and hybrid heaters too. In addition to our water heater repair and installation services, we’re also happy to schedule an appointment to perform maintenance on it. We service all styles and brands, from tankless water heater repair to conventional tanks to help you maximize the return on this important home investment.
When considering a water heater replacement, it is important to know that you have options. There are three main types of water heaters to choose from, each with their own benefits and downfalls. No matter which style you go with, it should last for 10-15 years.
