Water Heater Repair & Replacement

While not exactly life-altering, stepping into your shower only to discover there isn’t any hot water is one of the less pleasant experiences of modern daily life. The experts at Atlas Home Services can quickly get your hot water flowing again.

Conventional water heating systems are pretty basic
A pipe feeds cold water into the bottom of a tank. An electric or gas element heats the water. Nature dictates that hot water rises to the top of the tank. That hot water flows into your pipes when you turn on a faucet. Common water heater problems can include:

Water heater inspection

      • The thermostat that regulates the heating element stops working.
      • The internal pressure or temperature relief valve malfunctions.
      • The pipes that feed water in and out of your tank are leaking or partially blocked.
      • The water tank leaks.
      • Sediment buildup corrodes the heating elements or reduces the tank’s reservoir volume.
      • Your tank’s temperature settings are too low or too high.

Your Atlas service technician will get to the root of the problem and get your hot water running again.

Conventional Water Heaters Have a  8- to 10-Year Lifespan

Is your water heater more than 8 years old? Talk to us about replacement options. It may be time to reconsider the tank size that best fits your current and future needs.

Tankless Water Heaters

Unlike conventional systems that heat (and then reheat) a large reservoir of water, tankless systems heat water only as you need it. They reduce your annual water heating costs, last about twice as long as a conventional system, and take up a lot less space.

Your Atlas plumber can help you determine if a tankless system will meet your needs.

Fun Fact

Turn your shower or sink on at its the hottest setting. If the water is too hot to touch, or scalding, lower your water heater’s temperature. You don’t need water that hot, and it requires extra electricity/gas to keep it at such a high temperature.
