A water heater not working can mean any number of repair or maintenance issues, many of them simple fixes.  Is one or both of the elements bad? One or both of the thermostats?  Perhaps the problem is with a thermocouple or gas valve.

Call us as soon as you notice you have no hot water, or you have less hot water than usual. We can usually send someone to your home the same day you call, and you’ll have hot water again in no time.

Depending on the age of your hot water heater, the repair may be simpler and more affordable than you think (more…).

Hot Water Heater Maintenance is a good investment.

Your hot water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home, and it’s one of the most expensive. It can also be one of the largest energy users. Most homeowners make a significant investment when purchasing a hot water heater for their home. To help ensure you’re getting the best return on your investment, to make sure your family has hot water when and as it’s needed, and to keep your energy bills as low as possible – water heater maintenance is a good investment!

Water Heater Maintenance Tips

Check your anode rod at least yearly. The anode rod in your water heater is designed to attract corrosion-causing elements in the water to the anode rod, helping to prevent corrosion of the steel water heater tank itself. The anode rod should be inspected yearly and changed when it has been reduced to about 1/4 of its original size, in order to avoid leaks in your water heater caused by corrosion of the tank. How often the anode rod will need to be replaced will depend on how hard your water is. In most of Phoenix, Scottsdale, and the metro valley, the water is very hard. Your anode rod will no doubt need to be replaced fairly often. This is a relatively inexpensive plumbing repair, however it can help extend the life of your water heater. And, if you notice your water has an unpleasant odor, the anode rod should be replaced.

What about the temperature and pressure relief (T&P) valve? Don’t neglect proper maintenance of this very important safety feature of your water heater. You may have heard about an incident which occurred recently where a water heater blew up at a Phoenix home! That dangerous event occurred due to a plugged T&P valve on the water heater. Don’t take a chance with your family’s safety.  The T&P valve should be checked at least yearly.

Water heater noises? Flush your water heater.  Is your hot water heater making gurgling, banging or popping noises? Are you noticing your water is not as hot as it used to be, or there doesn’t seem to be enough hot water? Does your hot water have an unpleasant odor? You may have a problem with mineral build-up in the heater.

Most water heater manufacturers recommend that you flush your water heater at least once a year to reduce the build-up of minerals in the heater. Minerals and hard water scale accumulations inside the tank or on an electric water heater’s heating elements can decrease the efficiency of your hot water heater and may even make it fail prematurely. If this build-up has already occurred, flushing may not completely solve the problem; you may need to replace the water heater elements. To avoid scale build-up in the first place, you need to flush your tank (or have us flush it for you) at least once a year.  In some areas of Phoenix, where the water is especially hard (high mineral content) you may need to have the heater flushed more often.

Having your water heater tank flushed should be a part of your regular home maintenance, scheduled as needed depending on the water conditions at your home.

Flushing your water heater tank:  First, be sure to turn the power or gas off to the heater. Then, you’ll need to drain the tank.  CAUTION: The water draining from the tank will be hot!  After the tank has drained, close the drain and open the cold water valve. Let the tank fill to about half full, then drain again. Repeat this process a few times until the water you see draining from the tank is clear. Refill the tank and you’re set for another year!
