Water Heater Repair and Replacement on Sarasota

Water heaters

Water heaters are often considered to be essential plumbing appliances in homes, a belief which means that a water heater repair or replacement is also necessary to ensure that these water heaters are functioning properly. You can trust our plumbing services to get to the bottom of any water heater complications that you're experiencing. Reach out to our skilled professionals at Minuteman Plumbing to schedule a water heater repair if you're struggling with water heater problems in your Sarasota home.

If you own an electric water heater, the following problems might occur, necessitating a water heater repair with reliable Sarasota plumbers:

  • Lack of Hot Water - Electric water heaters heat water using two heating elements, so if your circuit breaker trips, you might experience a lack of hot water. Additionally, if these heating elements fail completely, they will need to be replaced.
  • Extremely Hot Water - If you've lowered your thermostat, but the water is still too hot, then the thermostat might need to be replaced, or a wiring problem might be to blame.
  • Rusty or Dirty Water - Rusty water indicates corrosion on the anode rod or within the tank. Discolored water is often a sign of scale buildup on the heating elements.
  • Leaking from the Bottom - Normal condensation can cause leaking at the bottom of your water heater. A leaking electric heating element gasket can also cause this problem. If the tank has a leak, then the water heater will have to be replaced entirely.
  • Strange Smells - Bacteria in the tank can produce a foul odor, but periodic flushing of the water heater can alleviate this problem.
  • Long Heating Time - If your water heater is taking a long time to heat water in between uses, then sediment buildup might be present on the heating elements.
  • Unusual Noises - When sediment accumulates at the bottom of the tank, you might hear knocking, popping, banging, hissing, and knocking noises.
  • Low Hot Water Pressure - Low hot water pressure can result from calcium deposits, sediment buildup, and rust in your plumbing system.

Water Heater Installation or Replacement

Occasionally, a simple water heater repair won't suffice, and you'll require a complete water heater replacement. Whether your water heater is inefficient or it's aging rapidly, a qualified plumber can help you replace it before your water heater breaks down entirely.

Consult with your plumbing company as soon as possible if you notice any of the following water heater problems that might necessitate a water heater replacement:

  • Increasing Energy Bills - If your water heater usage remains the same while your energy costs continue to rise, then you might want to schedule a water heater replacement because your current water heater is probably on the decline.
  • Frequent and Expensive Repairs - When a water heater replacement becomes less expensive than all of the water heater repairs you've had to hire a plumber to perform, then it's time to install a new water heater.
  • Inadequate Heating - If sediment buildup at the bottom of your water heater's tank isn't addressed promptly, the heating elements struggle to heat the water, and your water heater could fail completely.
