Salem Water Heater Repair Solves These Problems

When your water is lukewarm or the water is taking too long to heat up, it can be difficult to tell what the source of the problem is. With extensive training, our courteous and professional Salem water heater repair technicians can get the job done. You can rely on us to repair your water heater whenever possible, and if a replacement is necessary, we have the tools and knowledge necessary to complete that job too.

We can repair water heaters that are:

  • Leaking - If you have a tank water heater, the likely culprit is the main water tank. If you have a tankless water heater, then you have a water line that needs to be addressed. Either way, call your Salem water heater repair specialists and we'll get your unit back to normal.
  • Emitting gas - If you smell rotten eggs, then leave your premises and call your gas company. Natural gas doesn't have a natural scent, so the manufacturers put in this smell to warn people of gas leaks as they can be very dangerous.
  • Producing smelly/discolored water - With tank water heaters it can happen that the inner coating can start to peel and infiltrate your water. It's also possible that rust is building up in your water heater. Neither of these situations are ideal so call in your local Salem water heater repair pros to get your water normal again.
  • Not providing enough hot water - It's possible that your heating element needs a tune-up, or if you're getting splashes of cold water your dip tube could need to be repaired.
  • Making loud noises - If there's enough sediment build-up you'll hear it when it starts to snap and pop. Do not fret, your water heater just needs a thorough cleaning.
  • Heating water too hot
  • Running out of how water in the winter

Gas Water Heater Repairs

The two main types of water heaters that can be installed are gas and electric systems. Gas water heaters often experience issues when the pilot light goes out. The side of your water heater should have instructions on how to safely relight the pilot. However, if this doesn't solve the issue, you may need professional plumbing help. We can also check your pipes or any other aspect of your system to make sure there is not another issue going on.

Electric Water Heater Repairs

As for electric water heaters, the heating elements are a little more complex. There are a number of problems, internally and externally, which could be causing a hot water issue. For example, the circuit breaker which controls the thermostat could have gone off. Whatever the situation may be and whether we have to replace a part or do a more involved repair, you can rely on our Plumbers in Salem to do it right.

Prevent Frequent Water Heater Repairs With Regular Maintenance

Preventing your water heater from needing frequent repairs involves regular maintenance and mindful usage. Here are some key tips to help extend the life of your water heater and reduce the need for repairs:

  • Flush the Tank Annually: Drain and flush your water heater once a year to remove sediment build-up that can cause corrosion and reduce efficiency.
  • Inspect the Anode Rod: Check the anode rod every 2-3 years and replace it if it’s heavily corroded. The anode rod helps prevent rusting inside the tank.
  • Adjust the Thermostat: Set the thermostat to 120 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent overheating and reduce the risk of scalding.
  • Check for Leaks: Regularly inspect your water heater and its connections for any signs of leaks or moisture.
  • Install a Water Softener: If you have hard water, consider installing a water softener to reduce mineral build-up in the tank.
  • Test the T&P Valve: Test the temperature and pressure relief valve annually to ensure it’s working correctly.

Following these maintenance steps can help keep your water heater running smoothly and prolong its lifespan.
