Electric Water Heater Repairs

Electric water heaters work by filling up a tank of water that has two heating elements, one on the bottom of the tank and one on the top. The cold water enters the bottom of the tank and the lower heating element warms up the water at the bottom. As the water rises through the tank, the temperature of the water also rises. The upper heating element raises the water temperature to the levels that are desired by the homeowner.

Smaller electric water heaters will only have one heating element and those types of heaters are usually suitable for one to two people in a household.

Typical problems that we see in Allentown electric water heaters are when the heating elements corrode and no longer function correctly. Of course, electric water heaters have the same issues with leaking tanks or failing pressure relief valves as gas water heaters. Therefore is you suspect that you’re having those types of problems, be sure to contact us so we can send out a licensed plumber to address the problems.

Tankless Water Heater Repair

Tankless systems are a bit different from the traditional water heater in a few ways. First, they do not store water in a tank. Instead, they produce water on demand, therefore there are no issues with a tankless heater leaking because of a corrosion in the storage tank. But, keep in mind that these heaters may still develop a leak however, if or when they do, it is much less troublesome because you will not risk the possibility of having 30, 40, 50 or gallons of water pouring into your home from a failed storage tank.

Our experience with tankless water heaters in Allentown Pennsylvania is that they are proving themselves to be very reliable and efficient, requiring very little maintenance or repair. When there is a problem with an on-demand water heating system, we find that it is usually related to blocked venting, gas supply issues, the input filter begin clogged or hard water conditions. It is best to call you licensed Allentown plumbing contractor to diagnose and repair the tankless water heater in your Allentown residence.

We handle all types of service calls for both residential and commercial tankless water heaters in Allentown Pennsylvania and all surrounding areas.

Water Heater Repair Cost

The costs of repairing a water heater can vary greatly depending on the problem at hand. Simple heating element replacements or pilot light issues fall on the low end of the spectrum. However, when our plumbers determine that the existing water heating system is completely broken and has reached its maximum life span, then a replacement water heater is needed. The cost for a new heater can range anywhere from around $500 to over $1,000, depending on the type of heater installed and the type of fuel source that the home has.
