Water Heater Installation & Repair
We recommend hiring professionals, like us when it comes to installing water heaters. If you try to do it yourself, you get what you pay for at a big box store, a water heater, and no help at all to install it. This can bring about dangerous problems when not installed properly. That is why the city and county require a permit, which Tucson Plumbing will get for you. Don?t risk injury to yourself and your family by trying to install a water heater on your own. If your water heater is not properly installed it can explode, start a fire, and leak carbon monoxide. Tucson Plumbing has been serving Southern Arizonans since 1952. We?ll get the job done right and provide you with a complete warranty.
If your water heater is getting older, or shows indications of these issues, your water heater is most likely failing and will need to be replaced:
- Hot water runs out fast or doesn't heat up at all
- Noises from the unit
- Murky/cloudy water
- A leaking tank
- A leaking pressure relief valve
We take pride in offering the best possible solutions for your hot water needs. We can install and repair conventional tank-style water heaters, such as Bradford White. We can take you to the next level with a high-efficiency hybrid tankless water heater, like Navien, that gives you endless hot water. For homeowners with electric water heaters, new ultra-high efficiency heat pump electric water heaters are now available.
Water heaters last anywhere from 8-12 years. Most companies won't tell you this, but manufacturers recommend you flush your water heater once a year to remove sediment buildup in your tank. Sediment in the tank can keep water from getting hot and can reduce efficiency. This is the key to a long-lasting healthy water heater. We can do this flush service for you every year. You also may not know that your water heater came equipped with an Anode rod inside. The Anode rod protects your heater by absorbing harmful minerals in the water that can cause the tank to leak prematurely. The rod should be checked every two years (and replaced every four to five years) to keep your tank protected. If your home uses a water softener it is likely you will need to replace the Anode rod every two years due to the higher sodium or potassium content introduced by the softener. For tankless water heaters, there is no tank for sediment to build up, but limescale can develop in the pipes. This will reduce water heater efficiency. Tucson Plumbing offers professional descaling of the system to keep it running at its best.
We believe that preventative maintenance is financially beneficial to our customers. Call today to set up a water heater flush and complete home plumbing inspection.
