A broken water heater can affect the efficiency of your daily routine and make showers unpleasant (particularly during winter). If your water heater has been experiencing problems lately and you’re wondering whether it needs to be repaired or replaced, we can help.
Rocksteady Plumbing provides professional water heater installation and repair services for homeowners throughout Paso Robles, CA and surrounding areas in San Luis Obispo County. We are also available for 24/7 emergency service if you are struggling with a burst water heater tank.
Our experts work on all types of water heaters (tank, tankless, hybrid) and install both electric and gas-powered units.
Should You Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?
This is one of the most common questions we get from homeowners. Which is understandable, since you want to get the best value out of the service.
To help you decide whether water heater repair or replacement is best, we’ll first carry out a thorough inspection of your unit. This will give us an idea of your water heater’s overall health and alerts us to any other problems that may be affecting the unit.
When Repair is the Smarter Choice
Typically, if your water is still under warranty, repair is the more cost-effective choice. Simple water heater repair jobs include replacing worn out components (T&P valves, thermostats, anode rods) and fixing pilot light issues (in gas units).
We stock repair parts for most major brands and can perform repairs on the spot to help you get your water heater running like new again in no time!
When Replacement is Necessary
Water heaters produced these days often last 10–15 years. If your water heater is starting to experience problems and it’s over a decade old, chances are more issues will follow down the road; repairing the problem may simply prolong the issue rather than fix it. As a result, it’s often more cost-effective to replace older water heaters. Newer units are designed to work much more efficiently and will help you save on recurring repair costs.
Another telltale sign that you need a new water heater? If your current unit has rust near the bottom of the tank, or if you notice the tank leaking. A rusted or leaking water heater tank is at risk of bursting without warning and flooding your home. Avoid an emergency situation by calling for replacement as soon as rust or leaking is evident.
We Carry the Brands You Trust
Rocksteady Plumbing services and installs all major water heater brands. We are also authorized dealers of high-efficiency products from A.O. Smith, Navien, and Rinnai. If you are interested in learning more about tankless water heaters, our experts will go over your hot water needs and help you decide if this alternative is right for you.
Your water heater is an essential component of your plumbing system and plays a significant part in your daily routine. Let us help you keep it running efficiently with quality repairs and replacements!
