Do You Need A Water Heater Repair Or A Replacement?

If your water heater is relatively new, there might be a relatively easy fix, and the ProActiv Prevention handyman plumber might be able to restore your lovely hot water fairly quickly and easily. However, if your water heater is older — and especially if it’s not been well maintained — your best bet may be a replacement. There’s typically no way to know for sure without inspecting it, so give us a call and let us take a look.

What About Water Heater Maintenance?

Nobody likes having to call for an emergency home repair, and certainly not for an emergency plumbing repair. That’s why ProActiv Prevention™ offers regular preventative maintenance. Performing annual water heater maintenance, such as draining sediment from the water heater tank, can extend the life of your unit and make it less likely for a leak to develop. Talk to us about maintaining all your household systems.

Is Your Water Heater Energy-Efficient?

Energy efficiency is something most of us want in our home system, and there are quite a few things we can do to help you obtain hot water in a more energy-efficient manner. For example, we can recommend an energy-efficient model that’s the right size for your needs. We also can insulate your hot water pipes to further save energy dollars. We can also advise you as to the best settings; hot enough to meet your needs but not so hot as to waste energy or endanger any young children who may be in the home. We’re here to help, so please feel free to ask us as many questions as you want.

Is Chicago Water Hard On Water Heaters?

Chicago’s water is neither hard nor soft, so in general, Chicago water heaters are less susceptible to excess sedimentation than some other areas. However, if you’re outside the city and have a suburban water supply, the hardness of your water may vary. Well water? That can vary as well. If you do have hard water, you may find it worthwhile to invest in a water softener, which will spare your water heater some wear and tear.

Is Your Water Heater On Its Way Out?

Maybe your water heater is still functioning and you’re hoping it can be brought back from the brink. Calling us sooner rather than later and getting some timely preventative maintenance just might extend the life of your water heater. But if not, at least you’ll have a heads up and can take your time dealing with the problem, rather than having to drop everything and deal with an emergency issue.

We’ve never, ever heard anybody ever remark, “Wow, this was a really convenient time to replace the water heater!” On the contrary, water heaters seem to have a knack for going out during very cold weather, when you have house guests or at some other highly inconvenient time. So being able to anticipate a hot water replacement is better than being surprised. Do any of these things sound familiar to you?

  • You feel like you have a water warmer, not a water heater.
  • Your water heater is leaking.
  • The water heater tank is rusty.
  • You run out of hot water long before you’ve finished showering.
  • You hear your water heater making ominous noises.

If so, don’t delay.  Contact us today!
