Water heaters make washing and showering bearable especially during the cold days and nights. However, your water heater has an average life expectancy of about 8-12 years and you may start to have major heating problems. Your water heater can falter even before the average of 10 years and there are some warning signs that your water heater is starting to have problems. Know what these warning signs are to avoid not having hot water in your home. Diamondback Plumbing’s team of contractors can help you with water heater repair, installation, replacement and servicing.
For over 20 years, Diamondback Plumbing has been the local leading plumbing service company that has established themselves as the most trusted plumber in Arizona. We are well known for providing our residential and commercial customers great service and reasonable pricing.
Our Flagstaff team at Diamondback Plumbing understands you may not know where to start or how to do water heater care. After all, how will you do it without burning your hands from the hot water? We know you have many burning questions but here are some answers as to what you can do to prevent problems with your water heater:
- Look for signs of possible leaks, rust and other defect in your water heater.
- Keep the water temperature at 120 degrees or lower.
- Make sure there are no objects or clutter within two feet surrounding the unit.
- If you are using the tank type, drain it at least once a year. Wear protective gear and prepare a first aid kit beforehand.
- Have your water heater inspected by a professional once a year.
You can do the first four on your own but you should never attempt a thorough inspection and repair by yourself, unless you are trained and know how to do so. Aside from getting scalded, you may end up worsening any existing problem. You can trust our team to provide you with high quality water heater work and at an honest and fair price.
Are you about to move in a new Flagstaff home? Before you start furnishing your home with your furniture, appliances and decors, make sure your hot water furnace or heater is working properly. We can do the installation or repair of the water heater for you. Before we set your unit, we take into consideration its location, water source, water outlets and your demand to ensure its efficiency and cost-effectiveness. Don’t just let anyone without extensive experience handle the job because you might end up calling for repairs frequently or paying for high water heating costs.
Water Heater Leak Repair
If the supply of hot water from your faucets and showerheads is not as good as before, there may be a leak in your plumbing system. To be sure, look for any of the following signs of water heater leaks:
- spraying water from a pipe or a valve
- pooling water under a pipe or around the bottom of your water heater
- dripping water from your water heater’s valves
- rust on any part of your water heater, including the valves
Diamondback Plumbing can be your go-to professionals for any of your plumbing system concerns. We repair any leak in your system—be it on the water heater or on any of the pipes connected to it. We also examine the root cause of the leak to prevent future recurrences.
Prevent leaks, rust, calcium buildup, faulty parts and a host of other water heating issues by hiring us to maintain your unit. We can provide the needed upkeep of your water heater regardless of its type and model. This is best done when your unit is still working properly. Waiting for maintenance when it’s near the end of its life expectancy or when there’s a defective part is not the most ideal situation. For water heater defects, you’re going to need repairs while for old ones, you should seek replacement.
Due to incorrect installation, irreparable damage or old age, it is ideal to consider water heater replacement. We can handle the removal of your old unit and the installation of your new water heater. We will meet and exceed your expectations and we always provide quality plumbing services at honest rates.
New Water Heaters
Getting a new water heater may seem too expensive at first, but imagine the water heating costs you can cut down if you have a more energy-efficient unit. As much as possible, do your research before the end of the life expectancy of your water heater. You may opt for the traditional type or try out a new energy efficient water heater. There are new energy efficient models for electric, gas and tankless water heaters.
The traditional gas-powered water heater comes in different sizes to accommodate small to large households. Its installation is simpler compared to that of other types. We provide service, repair and installation for gas water heaters.
The electric type is more expensive than the gas-powered one. However, the former is more energy-efficient, making it the more cost-effective option in the long run. We provide service, repair and installation for electric water heaters.
The tankless water heater is a great space-saving choice. In addition, it has low operational costs and doesn’t cause standby heat loss. WE provide service, repair and installation of tankless water heaters.
