Water Heater Repairs and Installations

Having hot water is a luxury that we expect to always be around, as long as we have energy and water paid for. So, when your waiting for the water to warm up in your shower, and it never does, it’s a major problem. The first thing to check when this happens is the water heater.

If the water heater is leaking, this is a sign that a valve in the water heater needs to be repaired. By calling the professional plumbers at AZ Preferred Plumbing, we can come to your home and fix your water heater that same day. Thanks to our 24-hour emergency plumbing services, we’ll be there when you need us. We do repairs on both gas and electric water heaters, as well as instant water heaters. Repairs are the best course of actions to take for newer water heaters that still have plenty of years left to satisfy your hot water needs.

For water heaters older than 14 years of age tend to break down, and become unnecessary to repair because it might be ineffective. Once a water heater gets to that age, it’s time to consider replacing your old water heater with a new one. At AZ Preferred Plumbing we do the installation of:

  •    Gas powered tank water heaters
  •    Electrically powered tank water heaters
  •    Tankless water heaters

When it comes to choosing a new water heater, there are a few options to go with.

Gas powered tank water heaters are the best economical option to choose from when picking a new tank water heater. Gas water heaters use less energy than the electric water heater which reduces the monthly bills but is a slight inconvenience due to their exhaust. The gas water heater needs a chimney built above it take expend the exhaust released from the water heater.

The electric water heater works similarly to the gas water heater, except it’s powered by electricity. Electrically powered water heaters are most reliable option to pick between the tank water heaters. While they use more energy as an electrically powered water heater, it doesn’t require a chimney to be built above it because there isn’t any exhaust that needs the be released.      

Tankless water heaters can be a great alternative for those that don’t use a large amount of hot water throughout the day. A tankless, or instant, water heater works by heating the water while it’s in the pipe. This takes away a common the problems associated with tank water heater that can run out of a supply of hot water, and wait for the water to heat up when you want hot water. The reason the tankless water heater is also known as an instant water heater is due to its ability to provide hot water on demand. While the instant hot water heater requires a lot of energy to provide that hot water instantly, it only uses energy when it’s being used. This is a great economical choice if you don’t have many people using hot water constantly throughout the day.   

We will do the installation of your new water heater to ensure that there are not complications with its performance. If any kind of water heater is improperly installed, the water heater will perform poorly, and may even break before it’s even put to use.
