Water Heaters

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 skill, 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: From basic whistling to loud explosions, unusual noises coming from your water heater can be alarming. But our team knows how to address each of those sounds and get your water heater back to working quietly.
Leak from the top: If you see water leaking from the top of your tank, it’s a sign that pressure is building up inside. This can be caused by several things, including an issue with your thermostat or a malfunctioning temperature and pressure relief valve.
Leak from the bottom: A leak from the bottom of your tank is usually a sign that it’s corroded. This can happen over time due to minerals in the water or damage to the tank.
Not heating water: If your water heater isn’t heating up as it should, there are a few things that could be going on. It could be an issue with the thermostat, pilot light, or even the gas supply.
Not keeping water hot: Another common issue is when the water heater isn’t maintaining a consistent temperature. This could be caused by sediment buildup, faulty heating elements, or issues with the thermostat.
Not refilling: If your water heater isn’t refilling with cold water after use, it could be an issue with the dip tube. This is a small part that directs incoming cold water to the bottom of the tank, ensuring hot water stays at the top.
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 that during our water heater service appointments, 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.
