Water Heater Repair
Water heaters are constantly working, heating and shooting water throughout your home, from faucets to showers and washing machines. Typically, people only think about their water heater twice in its lifetime; when it’s first installed and if it fails and needs to be replaced.
However, like any other household appliance, water heaters may require repairs or maintenance from time to time. Usually these repairs are simple; replacing a thermocouple, draining sediment, etc., and the parts may be covered under the original warranty.
On average, a standard tank water heater will last about ten years. If your water heater is over 10 years old and needs to be repaired the chance of the heater failing again is high. At the price point for standard water heaters, it usually makes more economic sense to replace than repair an old water heater.
