Your home water heater is one of the most important and overlooked systems in your home, and when it fails- it’s also the most annoying. Water heater repair can be expensive and often leads to replacement due to the age and warranty period being expired. Here is a list from your friendly CrackerJack Plumbing pros on the most common water heater repairs in upstate South Carolina.
Electric Water Heater Repair
Electric water heaters fail more often than gas water heaters. This is because electric water heaters use submersible electrical heating elements to heat the water. When one or both of these heat elements fails, the water heater will no longer heat water. Are you experiencing an electric water heater failure? Call the professionals at CrackerJack Plumbing Pros to come take a look!
Another common failure of electric water heaters is tank leaks. Water heater tanks generally have a warranty of six (6) to twelve (12) years depending on the brand and quality. It’s generally advised due to age and warranty to consider replacing your water heater every 6-10 years. When you are ready to replace your electric water heater, give us a call.
Gas Water Heater Repair
Gas water heaters can fail in more ways than electric water heaters and require a certified professional to diagnose and repair. The most common failure of gas water heaters is related to the ignition system failing. This could be a thermocouple, gas valve, or the burner itself. Gas water heaters are also subject to gas leaks and venting issues which can be dangerous if not repaired correctly by a trained professional.
