Residential Water Heater Repair

residential water heater repair provided by Pacific Drain and Plumbing serving Portland Or Vancouver WA

The average water heater usually lasts between 6-10 years depending on its energy supply. As residential water heaters age, several warning signs may start to pop up. When your water heater starts to display these signs , a water heater repair specialist should be called.

Eight warning signs a household water heater needs repair:

  • Showing lukewarm water
  • Rusty colored water
  • Rotten egg smells near water heater
  • Gurgling and rumbling noises from water heater
  • High-pitched whining sounds from heater
  • Around the rusting base of the water heater, water leaks develop
  • Dishes and clothes are no longer getting clean due to no hot water

Before the household water heater fails, it’s time to think about getting a replacement that offers instant hot water. The older water heater consumes twenty-five percent of a home’s energy costs. The older they get, they become less efficient, and those costs continue to climb. Don’t wait until that lukewarm shower turns frigid, consider upgrading to a new energy efficient model to help lower utility costs.

Finding the right residential water heater

When choosing a new water heater for the home, several factors should be considered. Today families can find numerous water heaters available that will match the household’s needs. The experts at Pacific Plumbing & Drain can help determine the right size and fuel source for the home.

Four questions to ask when considering a replacement for the household’s water heater:

  • What amount of hot water is required for the household?
  • What water heater will offer the best energy efficiency?
  • Will it be cost effectual for the home?
  • Will it fit into the existing space of the old water heater or need re-locations?

Several varieties of water heaters are available for specific family needs
