Is your water heater acting up? Albuquerque Plumbing offers professional water heater replacement, repair, and installation services. We take a comprehensive approach to water heater services in order to help save you money and ensure you don’t ever have to go without hot water for long.
Why Do I Need Water Heater Services?
Typical water heaters have life spans of about 10 years. As they near the end of their lifespan, parts will begin to corrode and hard water buildup can cause other parts to malfunction. When this occurs, you may experience problems like:
• Water heater leaks
• Rusty water
• Foul smelling water
• Not enough hot water
• Too hot water
• Water heater not working at all
Aside from these issues, it is a good idea to replace old water heaters. Today’s water heaters are much more energy-efficient than older water heaters. Upgrading to a new water heater can help you do your part for the environment and also reduce utility bills significantly. Newer on-demand (tankless) water heaters can especially go a long way in reducing utility costs.
Water Heater Repair Services
The plumbers at Albuquerque Plumbing are licensed, bonded, and insured to perform water heater repair services. We even come equipped with spare parts for water heaters. Some water heater repairs are simple and can be quickly fixed, but others may require special parts. In these cases, we will help you weigh the cost-benefits of water heater repair over replacement.
Water Heater Sales and Installation Services
We strive to make it easy and affordable for you to upgrade your water heater. Our agents will explain your options for water heaters, help you pick out the right water heater for your budget and usage needs, and then take care of the installation. All water heaters installed by us are covered by a warranty, including for workmanship.
On-Demand (Tankless) Water Heaters
On-demand water heaters, also called tankless water heaters, represent the newest technology of water heaters. They do not store hot water in a tank like conventional water heaters but rather create hot water as you need it, thus significantly reducing the energy demands required to constantly have hot water in a storage tank. We have already helped thousands of homeowners and businesses upgrade to on-demand water heater technology, and are ready to help with all your needs too.
Commercial Water Heater Services
Commercial businesses depend on their hot water heaters to keep operations running. When your water heater malfunctions, you need to know that a licensed, experienced plumber is just a phone call away. Our plumbers are available 24/7 and can typically be at your business within 20 minutes. If a repair cannot be made, we offer emergency water heater installation services for businesses. Some of the specialty commercial hot water heater services we offer include:
• 24/7 water heater services
• Gas, electric, and solar water heaters
• Thermostatic mixing valves
• Hydronic heating
Water Heater Services FAQs
How long do water heaters last?
A typical tank water heater lasts about 10 years, though some may have longer warranties.
Should I repair or replace my water heater?
It depends. If your water heater is old and the repair will be costly, then it probably makes more sense to buy a new one. If your budget is limited, then you may opt for a repair but start saving for a new water heater.
What are the benefits of tankless water heaters?
Tankless water heaters use much less energy and can save you money on your utility bills while also helping the environment. Tankless water heaters also never run out of hot water because they produce water on demand.
Can I install my own water heater?
Water heater installation should only be done by an experienced professional with knowledge of plumbing and electricity and gas. You may be knowledgeable enough to install your own water heater, but check if doing so will void the warranty.
What capacity water heater do I need?
With tank water heaters, a 50-60 gallon tank is generally sufficient for 1-3 people, whereas a family will probably require about 80 gallons. With tankless water heaters, the capacity is measured in flow rate. The required flow rate will depend on whether you are installing a whole-house tankless water heater, or just for one fixture. Our plumbers can help you determine which capacity water heater to install.
