You should call us for water heater repair if you notice any of the following:

  • Discolored hot water: Rust within the system can turn the hot water dark in color and is likely a sign of an issue with the water heater.
  • Clanking noises from the tank: Clanking noises coming from the water heater tank are typically caused by mineral build ups that need to be cleaned with a water heater flush.
  • Cold water: Lukewarm, or cold water may be caused by a problem with the ignition system or pilot light.
  • Foul odor in hot water: If the hot water has a bad odor, this could be caused by some type of buildup in the water heater.
  • Water heater not maintained: You should have one of our professionals look at your water heater if it has not been maintained in a while. You should consider doing this before each winter.
  • Leaks: A leak from the water heater could be due to a problem with the tank or other components.

Water Heater Replacement

Sometimes a water heater can be repaired, and sometimes it needs to be replaced.  Our professionals at Fly Plumbing & HVAC can determine if your water heater needs to be replaced and help you choose a new water heater that fits your needs and budget. 

We can provide and install the following types of water heaters:

  • Conventional: Conventional water heaters use gas or electric energy to keep water at a set temperature. They come in a variety of gallon capacities ranging 40-80 gallons for residential use.  Larger tanks may be needed for homes with a hot tub or serious water demands.  High-efficiency conventional water heaters can decrease water heating bills by about 7 percent.
  • Power Vent: A power vent water heater uses a blower or fan exhaust gases to heat water by pushing them through horizontal vent pipes. The primary advantage of a power vent water heater is that it can be installed anywhere because it does not require a vertical vent or chimney.  This type of water heater is also more efficient than a conventional water heater and has a higher BTU range for hotter water.
  • Tankless: Tankless water heaters are energy efficient and only heat water when it is used. These water heaters require less space and but may need special venting, larger gas lines, or additional electric circuits.  Tankless water heaters can reduce water heating bills by as much as 30 percent.

The price that you are quoted for hot water heater replacement includes delivery of the new water heater, disposal of the old heater, and installation of the new heater.  Any modifications may be discussed with the technician that arrives on site.
