Water Heater Repair

Water Heater Repair in Chapel Hill, Durham, and Surrounding Areas

Cold water can come as a shock when you’ve hopped into what you expect to be a nice hot shower! While water heaters are highly effective at helping us stay warm when we need it, they may need repairs from time to time—and ignoring a repair can be quite uncomfortable to deal with!

Common Issues with Water Heaters

A typical water heater can last upwards of 10 to 15 years without any issues. However, beyond that you may start to notice a few signs of reduced efficiency. If you notice the following signs, it might be time to call in a professional:

  • Broken Thermostat – If your thermostat is inaccurate or isn’t working you may encounter water that is shockingly hot or bitterly cold.
  • Faulty or Worn Wiring – Water heaters rely heavily on electrical components to work. Unfortunately, the wiring can corrode or stop working overtime.
  • Damage or Neglect – Dents, scratches, and cracks are all warning signs that you may have a leak in your hot water tank that will need to be either repaired or replaced.

If you are worried that your hot water tank needs repair, or that your water heater isn’t working as well as it should, call our experts at 919-929-0203 to schedule a consultation. With decades of experience in the home services and plumbing industries, we understand that customer satisfaction begins with answering your questions and providing a positive, reliable experience.

Types of Water Heaters

Most people will rely on the same type of water heater throughout their lives. The fact is, although there are several types of water heaters, they differ mostly in how they operate.

  • Tank Water Heaters rely on a tank containing a series of burners that heat the water.
  • Tankless Water Heaters use heated coils that wrap around the pipes that the water passes through on its way to the faucet.
  • Heat Pump Water Heaters facilitate heat exchanges of outside air and use refrigerants to either heat or cool your water.

Although water heaters may all look similar at first glance, they can be quite different and require unique approaches to repair. When you choose Bud Matthews Services, we provide a thorough inspection of your water heater to get down to the exact source of the problem.
