Frequently Asked Questions

Circuit breaker issues are usually related to thermostat issues, burnt heating elements, or faulty wiring. Your best option is to have a plumbing professional check all of the electrical connections to pinpoint the source of the problem.
If your water heater is putting out hot water, but without ample water pressure, there are a few possibilities. Sediment build up, a bad shut-off valve, and poor piping are all common causes, but they’re not the only ones. The solution could require flushing the tank, repiping the heater, or just adjusting a loose component.
A typical tanked water heater should last anywhere from 8-12 years, depending on use and maintenance.

A typical tankless water heater should last anywhere from 12-20 years. Many homeowners are surprised to learn that tankless water heaters actually require a little more regular maintenance to maximize their lifespans, since sediment build up can be a bigger problem for these models.

A typical hybrid water heater should last anywhere from 15-20 years. They require roughly the same ongoing maintenance as a tanked water heater.

It depends on a few factors, including the overall life of the equipment, which components are breaking down, and the condition of other components.

Many water heater issues require simple repairs. A faulty T&P valve, or an intake leak can be fixed in under an hour without much in equipment charges. But a cracked tank is a much bigger issue, and it often makes more sense to replace the heater than to try and replace the tank alone.

Water Heater Replacement

For new water heater installations, we only install equipment from the most trusted brands in the industry. Our go-to brand for new water heater installation is Bradford White, due to their superior reliability, long equipment life, and dependable warranties.

California’s Water Heater Rebate

Heat pump water heaters cost much more than gas-fueled water heaters—unless you live in California. Thousands of dollars in rebates are up for grabs for families who are interested in purchasing heat pump water heaters, making them comparable in price with other options. Why not choose a more efficient water heater that will cost you less in utilities monthly when it costs the same as a model that will spend more energy?

Why Choose a Heat Pump Water Heater?

There are many benefits of heat pump water heaters that make them an ideal choice for most households. We installed AeroTherm® Series water heaters, and the benefits of them include:

  • Energy-efficiency: These water heaters don’t need to generate heat. Instead, they use heat from the air, collect it, and warm your water with it. With this technology, heat pump water heaters significantly reduce their energy usage.

  • Fast recovery: You’ll have hot water when you need it, as heat pump water heaters can use their backup electrical heating to deliver more hot water in times of high demand. You won’t sacrifice comfort for energy efficiency.

  • Different modes: Choose electric-only mode if you want to increase your hot water supply quickly, or choose vacation mode if you want to save even more money while you’re not in the house.

  • Smart control panel: Controlling the temperature of your water heater, changing between its modes and even monitoring its performance is simple with the smart control panel. Move the temperature anywhere from 100 to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

  • Simple installation: Heat pump water heaters offer simple installation, including the same water and electrical hook-ups as other water heaters. This further reduces the cost of getting one installed and helps your plumber complete the process quickly.

  • Quiet operation: If you’re not a fan of white noise, you’ll be pleased to hear that heat pump water heaters are very quiet. If you need them to be even quieter you can switch over to their electric-only mode.

Water Heater Maintenance

The best way to avoid emergency repairs is to invest in preventative maintenance. Our water heater check-ups can also prolong the life of your heater and increase system efficiency, lowering your monthly utility bill.

Our maintenance services include sacrificial node replacement, checking on critical components, checking for leaks, and other steps to make sure that your water heater will keep running trouble-free for years to come.

Another critical maintenance task is to flush your water heater. Over time, sediment from your water supply builds up inside your heater, hurting overall performance, degrading components faster, and even affecting the quality of your water itself. The good news is that getting your water heater flushed is fast and easy. The bad news is that you need to do it every 1-2 years to maximize the life of your equipment.
