Water Heater repair and replacement
Most common water heater and tankless issues
–Leaking heater tank – Mineral deposits corrode the inside of a water heater tank, eventually causing cracks in the tank. The average lifespan of a heater is 8- 12 years.
–Pilot light won’t stay lit – the most common reason the pilot on your water heater won’t remain lit is the thermocouple. Other common reasons are faulty venting, high winds, low gas pressure, or heat exchangers.
–Pop sounds coming from the water heater – Popping, banging, and crackling noises are caused when Sediment and scale accumulate at the bottom of your tank. The popping noise is caused by Sediment’s steaming and bubbling up when it is pushed around the heater.
-Rotten egg smell from hot water heater – Rotten egg smell is the most common odor problem with water heaters. It is usually caused by sulfate bacteria that develop within a tank. When warm water is left sitting too long in a tank, bacteria build up in the water heater.
–Tankless heater error codes – When your tankless heater is not functioning properly, it is probably because there is a flashing error code. If you cannot identify the code, it is best to contact a licensed plumber to diagnose the tankless heater.
-Water stays lukewarm – Throughout time, sediment and scale can accumulate at the bottom of the tank leading to slower heating of the water heater and causing lukewarm warm water. It is recommended to flush the water heater once a year to remove sediment buildup.

Tankless Water Heaters
This may be a new concept to your or it may be something you already use in your home or business. A tankless water heater can heat water directly without use of a storage tank. The way it work goes like this: the hot water tap is turned on, at first cold water travels through the pipes and into the unit. A gas burner or electric component will then heat the water. Tankless models deliver a consistent supply of hot water and it only operates when hot water is be requested. No need for storage tanks to keep the hot water or to reheat it, therefore, homeowners and business owners prefer this system over the traditional hot water heater using a tank. The electronic component means there is no standing pilot light constantly using energy. Tankless systems are much more energy efficient and even more they can save owners on utility costs.
