When Should You Have Your Water Heater Repaired or Replaced?

Wondering when to contact our plumbing professionals for water heater repair in Gilbert? Although there are several variables involved, our plumbers compiled a list of the most common signs of impending water heater malfunction:

  • No hot water when you turn on the tap
  • Cloudy or rusty hot water
  • Strange-tasting hot water
  • You find a leak in the tank or lines leading to the heater
  • There are strange and loud noises coming from your water heater

Conventional (Tanked) Water Heaters

Conventional (tanked) water heaters are, by far, the most common type of water heaters in Gilbert. They heat water using natural gas, propane, or electricity, and then store the hot water in a tank for later use. Tanked water heaters come in a variety of makes, models, sizes, and efficiency ratings, so they’re perfect for any home or business. Typically, we recommend tanked heaters for those that use more than 40 gallons of hot water every day.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are the second-most common type of water heaters in the area. Like their tanked counterparts, tankless water heaters also heat water using natural gas, propane, or electricity. However, they don’t store hot water in a tank for later use. Instead, they heat water on an on-demand basis. Unfortunately, due to their on-demand nature, we typically only recommend tankless water heaters in homes and businesses that use fewer than 40 gallons of hot water every day.
