Water Heater Service and Repair
Bluflame is a factory authorized dealer for the full line of Bradford White Products including gas water heaters, electric water heaters and propane water heaters.
Your water heater plays a critical role in keeping everyday chores and routines comfortable in your home. Bathing, showering, doing laundry, washing dishes, and cleaning tasks are not possible if your water heater cannot keep up. A decent water heater can provide up to 10-13 years of service, but many problems can cause your water heater to breakdown along the way. Any do-it-yourself repair mistakes could lead to even more significant problems down the road. Only attempt DIY repairs when you are fully confident in your skills and abilities.
In fact, the best repairs are done through preventative maintenance. You can save a lot of time and money by either yourself or HVAC professionals spotting warning signs during preventative maintenance. At Bluflame, our process is the same no matter if you schedule preventative maintenance or need emergency water heater service. Our HVAC experts will:
- Evaluate your situation
- Inspect your water heater system
- Diagnose what went wrong or may be of concern in the future
- Thoroughly explain repair options to best suit your water heater needs and budget
Common Water Heater Problems
After a hard day at work, nothing is worse than a shower without hot water. Below we have identified some of the most common water heater problems and what to look out for.
- Insufficient Hot Water
Running out of hot water can be frustrating, especially when you are in a hurry. This could be a result of too much demand for an undersized water heater, or something more serious may be going on. You could have a thermostat that is not functioning correctly, or perhaps an issue with the gas supply or heating element. If your family is using more hot water than your tank can provide at a given time, it may be time to upgrade. You may want to look into a larger water heater or even a tankless model. Also, be sure to check the gas supply and heating element to make sure there are not any issues there.
- Water Temperature Too Hot or Cold
If you have water that is too hot or too cold, you may have a faulty thermostat or sediment build up in the tank. Try adjusting the thermostat to the desired temperature, if the issues do not resolve, try to drain your water heater and refill it. When in doubt, call the professionals at Bluflame to do an assessment.
- Rusty or Discolored Water
If you have rusty or discolored water, there is likely corrosion inside your water heater tank. You will likely need to replace your anode rod, or in a worst-case scenario, you will need a full water heater replacement.
- Leaking Hot Water Heater
If you see leaking water or a puddle around the base of your water heater, call the professionals at Bluflame right away. This could be the result of a broken drain valve, too much pressure, corrosion, or other faulty plumbing connections. Let the professionals handle the mess and get your water back to normal in no time.
