Have you ever looked forward to a nice, long, hot shower, only to be greeted by a blast of cold water in your face? The plumbers at Neighborly Plumbing sincerely hope you haven’t, but if this ever happens to you, call us right away. We provide fast, efficient water heater service in Salt Lake City and the surrounding area. We’ll get your hot water back for you ASAP.

Water Heater Maintenance

Generally speaking, a water heater lasts about 10 years. If you get regular maintenance for your water heater, however, it can last even longer. As part of our water heater maintenance service, the plumbers at Neighborly Plumbing check your water heater’s pressure and drain the tank to remove any sediment that has settled at the bottom.

If you live in an area where the water has lots of minerals in it, this is an especially important job. Sediment in your tank can displace several inches of water, making your water heater less efficient and possibly clogging the lines. It can even cause your water heater to break down sooner.

While homeowners can perform their own water heater maintenance if they have that skills, it’s usually better to leave this job to the professionals, especially if you have a gas appliance.

Problems with Your Water Heater

Salt Lake City residents call Neighborly Plumbing for all sorts of problems with their water heater, including:
Noises such as clicking, knocking, bubbling and whistling
Leak from the top
Leak from the bottom
Not heating water
Not keeping water hot
Not refilling
As busy plumbers in Salt Lake City, these are all problems we’ve seen before. Not all of them are serious, and some can be easy fixes. But others, unfortunately, spell the end for your water heater. We can’t know for sure until our plumbers check out the problem. However, you can rest assured we always do our best to provide water heater repairs before recommending that you get a new water heater.

Saving Money & Energy with Your Water Heater

When you price new water heaters, keep in mind that gas water heaters cost more than electric water heaters, but they are cheaper to run. Tankless water heaters also cost more than the traditional tank-style heaters, but they use less energy by heating your water on demand instead of keeping it hot for you 24/7.

If you have a tank-style water heater and want to save money on your energy bills, we recommend you wrap your water heater in insulation. This helps keep the water warmer for longer. Most home improvement stores sell insulation blankets for water heaters so that you don’t have to buy an entire roll of insulation and cut it down to size yourself.
