Orange County, CA Water Heater Repair

Modern water heaters have a long lifespan, but as with any other appliance the efficiency and quality of a water heater relies on regular maintenance and quality repair. If your water heater isn’t working properly or is costing much more to operate than it did when new, it is important that you have a professional inspect the device as soon as possible to evaluate the condition of the heater.

When it is time to have your water heater serviced, call Saddleback Plumbing. We will work diligently to identify the problem and fix it fast so you have the reliable hot water you need to go about your daily life.

Common Water Heater Repair Needs near Orange County

Water heaters are heavily insulated tanks that hold a certain volume of water at a specific temperature until it is needed. To do so, they perform three functions: they heat the water, maintain the temperature of the water, and deliver the hot water to your fixtures when needed.

If any of these tasks are not being performed satisfactorily you should call for repair services. The sooner the problem is diagnosed the less likely it is that an entire replacement will be necessary. If repair is not an option, though, rest assured that Saddleback Plumbing and our team will take you through the entire replacement process with our years of experience as a resource.

The Water Heater Repair Process

If you notice an increase in your water heating bill or are lacking sufficient hot water for every room in your home, you should call in an expert to inspect the system. We will visit your home and take a closer look at all of the active systems in the water heater.

If you have a gas hot water heater we will inspect the burner plate, pilot light and gas valves to ensure that the right amount of gas is being delivered and burned properly. We will also inspect the tank, its insulation and the overall structure of the appliance to make sure that everything is in working condition. If there is an issue, such as a crack in the glass lining of the tank, that requires replacement, our technicians will identify the problem and take you through the necessary steps of the replacement process.

Other factors that might be causing your decrease in hot water supply include thermostat calibration, sediment build–up at the bottom of the water tank, or a clog in the pipes coming into or out of the water heater.
