Hot Water Heater Repair Services When You Need It Most
Since 1971, the professionals at Oliver Heating, Cooling, & Plumbing have been offering quality hot water heater repair services to clients in the Philadelphia area and beyond. We know families rely on their hot water for a variety of reasons and once your supply is compromised, it can be an issue.
Whether your water heater is whining, hissing, leaking, clunking, emitting an odd smell, or making a strange noise, we can assess the situation and determine what needs to be done to fix it. Once we figure out the problem, we’ll let you know whether your water heater can be repaired or if it’s better off being replaced – either way, we’ll work quickly to restore your hot water.
Common Signs You Need a Water Heater Repair
Oliver Heating & Cooling delivers the comfort you can trust. We know how important your water heater is to your quality of life, and we offer a full range of hot water heater repair services that will get your hot water flowing again. It may be obvious that you need to call us. Perhaps you’re not getting any hot water at all, or your water heater has sprung a leak. But there can be other issues that while not as obvious do require professional attention, such as odd sounds, strange smells, and even drips. No matter the problem, we’ll get to the bottom of it and determine the best solution for your particular unit.
Hot water with an unpleasant odor is typically caused by bacteria, and this is most common for homeowners who have a well. Smells can occur with city water if, for instance, the water heater has sat unused for a while. The most common fix for smelly hot water is replacing the anode rod, but we recommend calling in the experts to ensure that the problem isn’t deeper than that.
Your Water Heater is Leaking
A serious water leak is an obvious sign that you need Oliver’s hot water heater repair services, but don’t underestimate drips or even a small amount of pooling water from an unknown source. You may have a loose line or be experiencing issues with an inlet, outlet, or valve. We strongly encourage you to call us to fix that minor issue before it becomes a much more serious and expensive repair.
Modern water heaters are relatively silent, and unusual noises are usually an indication that something is wrong. Banging or rumbling often points to excess sediment. Persistent crackling or hissing can indicate an electrical problem, and screeching or whistling could mean loose valves. If a sound makes you unsure or persists, we recommend that you call the pros at Oliver as soon as possible.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Other water heater problems we encounter often are water that is too hot or not hot enough. Assuming that you have the appropriate temperature dialed in, there are a number of common causes. It may be that the thermostat is bad or that there is a significant accumulation of sediment, and in either case, Oliver provides hot water heater repair services to get your water to the optimal temperature.
Traditional & Tankless Hot Water Heater Repair Services
The water heater experts at Oliver work on both traditional tank-based units and newer tankless systems. We also work on heat pump water heaters, which are often integrated into the HVAC system for a truly efficient solution. Whatever type you have, if you experience a water heater problem, we offer affordable hot water heater repair services to help you overcome it. If you are unsure which technology you have in your home, Oliver is happy to provide a consultation in order to identify it and answer any questions that you may have.
Our Water Heater Maintenance Plan
If you want to keep your water heater costs as low as possible and maximize the life span of your equipment, we recommend our water heater maintenance plan. As a plan member, we’ll perform an annual cleaning, inspection, and tune-up of your water heater. That includes testing the main components, calibrating the system, and adjusting connections, which will all greatly reduce the risk that you experience a serious issue down the line. In the event you do require our hot water heater repair services, you’ll receive a 10% discount on diagnostic fees and repairs.
Hot Water Heater Installation and Replacement Services
Oliver installs water heaters too, and if your water heater has reached the 10-year mark, then it’s a good time to start considering installation and replacement. We certainly appreciate wanting to get as much out of your investment as possible, but old water heaters can actually cost more in the end due to inefficient operation and repair costs. Be proactive. Avoid dealing with a water heater that fails in the middle of winter and invest in a new water heater that will save you money over the next decade.
