Water Heater Repair Crew

At Summers Plumbing, we understand that plumbing issues need to be resolved quickly. We all have busy schedules, and issues with your water heater can cause major setbacks to your daily routine. Apart from being inconvenient, a malfunctioning water heater can make life uncomfortable. More importantly, a damaged water heater can pose a threat to your home depending on the nature of the malfunction. This is why you need a trustworthy plumbing company in Athens that can respond to your call right away.

Common Water Heater Problems

Your water heater is one of the most important systems in your entire home. It’s what provides you with the hot water you need to shower comfortably, wash dishes, and do your laundry. If you’re experiencing issues with water temperature, there might be something wrong with your water heater. Our technicians can quickly identify these issues and come to a solution that works with your budget.

Be sure to contact your local trusted plumber if you notice:

  • Sediment buildup
  • Low water temperature
  • Leaking
  • Water flow changes
  • Foul smell
  • Noises coming from inside the water heater

It is also very important to call a plumber if your pilot light won’t light or stay lit as this can be a problem with your gas control valve. Fortunately, Summers Plumbing can help. Our water heater professionals in Athens can be reached 24/7 and are always responsive. We’ll let you know what can be done to resolve your situation and repair your water heater.

Repair Or Water Heater Replacement?

When it comes to servicing your water heater, there are two options that are always on the table for you. We will happily repair your unit anytime you’d like, but we’d recommend water heater replacement if any of the following apply:

  1. Your water heater is old
    How long your water heater will last depends on use, environment, maintenance, and the type of water heater. Tank water heaters usually last 8-12 years while tankless water heaters can last for 20 years.
  2. Repair after repair
    If you’re finding that you need to repair your water heater multiple times every year, then consult our Athens water heater replacement specialists, as you may be  spending your money on a dying unit.
  3. Corrosion on the inside of the unit
    If your hot water has this reddish brown discoloration, then first check your anode rod. It’s possible that only your anode rod is rusty and it hasn’t spread to your water heater yet.
  4. Leaking tank
    The type of leak will determine if you need water heater replacement. If you have a line that’s leaking, you could replace the line, but if your tank is leaking then talk to our Athens water heater replacement experts about a new unit.
  5. Not enough hot water
    If you have a tank water heater that keeps running out of hot water, then no amount of water heater repair is going to enlarge your tank. You should consider getting a bigger tank or a tankless water heater as they don’t run out of water.

Tankless Water Heaters

While traditional tank-type water heaters are more affordable initially, tankless water heaters offer far more personal and financial benefits in the long run. Unlike a tank-type water heater that requires gas to heat water in a massive unit before sending it to your desired faucets, a tankless water heater uses electricity to heat water while it’s traveling through your pipes.

This unit offers many benefits some of which include increased:

  • Safety – Because a tankless system does not run on gas, simple maintenance from time to time can ensure the safety of your family.
  • Efficiency – You will notice a significant difference on your utility bill and can enjoy those savings for years to come.
  • Reliability – In addition to receiving virtually unlimited amounts of hot water at any given time, your unit will require less maintenance and fewer repairs than a tank-type water heater.

Our experienced plumbers in Athens are here to help you make the best decision for your family and your home. If your water heater constantly needs repairs, it may be time to replace it. We can perform water heater installation in such cases. No matter what your situation may be, you can count on us to help you determine the most reliable and cost-effective solution.
