Experienced water heater repair or replacement companies in Virginia Beach, Norfolk, Chesapeake, Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, Yorktown, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Tabb, Grafton, Smithfield, and James City County know the telltale signs to determine if a cracked tank or corrosive rust is causing the problem. They also know to ask if the water has an odor, if it is cloudy or discolored, or if it simply does not get hot enough. Knowledgeable plumbers will also check the water heaters recirculating system, connector, supply line, drain valve and burner assembly.
Sticking to the estimate
You want a water heater repair or water heater installation company that knows how to quickly and accurately diagnose and repair your problem while sticking to their price estimate. Look for plumbers with a long history of positive reviews and check the company’s BBB rating. Our A+ Rating with the Virginia Better Business Bureau is something we are very proud of and work hard to maintain. Also, make sure the plumbing company is insured and holds a current Virginia contractor’s license.
Repair or replace?
If the estimated cost of labor for your water heater repair is greater than the value of its remaining warranty, you will probably want to replace the unit. Also consider a water heater replacement if your current model is outdated.
Choosing a water heater
Skilled plumbers will help you narrow down the type of water heater you need based on household size, hot water usage, and budget.
How often do i need service?
Whether you need a water heater repair or a water heater replacement, our plumbers recommend that you schedule regular inspections and a yearly flushing to prevent sudden, costly repairs.
Got a noisy water heater?
A noisy water heater is usually an indication of sediment in the water tank. While you may still have hot water, it is not running as efficiently as it could. Having the tank drained and serviced by a skilled plumber will improve efficiency and could extend the life of your heater.
Does a leaking water heater have to be replaced?
Yes, in most cases a leaking water heater cannot be patched. If a loose fitting is causing the leak however, it might be repairable.
