Repair Water Heater

Capital Plumbing offers water tank repair and replacement service to keep your water temperature comfortable during everyday use. When the temperatures drop, a functioning water tank is essential to the comfort and safety of your home.

Because hot water heaters are often in storage areas or basements, they can be easy to forget when working properly. It is often not until they start malfunctioning that you notice them, and this can lead to costly repairs or replacements.

By paying attention to the noises, function, and efficiency of your water heater, you can recognize tank water heater problems early on.

Signs to Get Your Water Heater Inspected
121 1
The average lifespan of a water heater is roughly 10 years, depending on the level of maintenance and care you put into it over the years. When any type of water heater is outdated, it may need to be replaced. When a part or valve is in poor condition, it will only require a replacement.

What Causes Water Heater Issues?

Many homeowners do not know their water heater is damaged or malfunctioning until it is too late. Because of this, it is important to familiarize yourself with the reasons why water heater issues arise in the first place.

One of the best ways to prevent any issues with your water heater is to perform routine inspections and preventative maintenance with the help of a professional.

At Capital Plumbing & Heating, we are here to keep your water heater in optimal shape by assessing its efficiency, removing any contaminants or sediment, and replacing parts over time.

Tank vs Tankless Water Heaters

When it comes to choosing the best water heating solution for your home in Edmonton, you’re likely considering two main options: traditional hot water tanks and modern tankless water heaters. Both have their own distinct benefits and drawbacks.

Tank Water Heaters

Hot Water Tanks are the standard choice for many homeowners. They store and heat a large volume of water within an insulated tank, so hot water is readily available whenever you need it.

However, they can be bulky, taking up more space than their tankless counterparts. Their lifespan is generally around 10-15 years with regular maintenance, including occasional hot water repair or replacement parts.

Whichever option you choose, proper care is essential for long-lasting performance. Regular inspections by professionals offered in Edmonton can prevent minor issues from turning into costly problems down the line.

If you ever face issues with your unit like sudden temperature changes or leaks, don’t hesitate to call experts for Hot Water Repair in Edmonton immediately! Ignoring such signs could lead to severe damage necessitating a complete Water Heater Replacement which can be quite expensive.

5. My Water Heater isn’t Making Hot Water! What Could Be The Problem?

Your water heater may have issues with the power supply, the thermostat, the heating element, or the dip tube. You can check and fix these components yourself or call a professional plumber for help. If the tank is leaking or corroded, you may need to replace the whole unit.

6. How can I prevent future water heater problems?

You can prevent future water heater problems by maintaining your water heater regularly, installing a water softener or a scale inhibitor, and upgrading to a more efficient or durable model. These steps can help you save money, energy, and avoid potential hazards.

7. Should I repair or replace my water heater?

The decision to repair or replace your water heater depends on several factors, such as the age, condition, and performance of the unit. As a general rule, if your water heater is more than 10 years old, has major leaks or corrosion, or needs frequent repairs, it may be time to replace it. However, if your water heater is relatively new, has minor issues, or can be fixed at a low cost, it may be worth repairing it.

8. Can I fix my water heater myself?

Some water heater problems can be fixed by yourself if you have the necessary tools, skills, and knowledge. For example, you can replace the heating element, the thermostat, or the pressure relief valve by following the instructions in the owner’s manual or online tutorials. If you are not sure how to fix your water heater or if you encounter any difficulties, it is best to call a qualified plumber for help.

The time it takes for water heaters to heat up depends on the size and type of the unit, as well as the initial water temperature and the desired water temperature. Generally, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour for a 40-gallon electric water heater to heat up a full tank of water from 50°F to 120°F.

Friendly, informative, and overall a pleasure to deal with Chris. Capital Plumbing unfortunately has a $99 show up fee, understandable, and I did not compare prices so will not attest to that but they showed up within 24 hours when a lot of others said within a week.

I used Capital Plumbing at my old residence. They were the best then and still continue to be today. I knew when I called for service for my new place I would definitely get the same service. I was right and they didn’t disappoint. The technician was excellent. The lady that answered the phone was the best customer service representative I have ever talk to. They are very lucky to have such a great representative for their company answer the phone. It all starts with the phone call. I would 100% recommend this company to everyone

(Updated from 1 to 3 stars) They eventually did the work they said they would do but:- they didn’t do the work the first time they came- I had to call them six times to get them to finally listen and come back without charging me even more- the tech complained to my wife that the job was underquoted (even though the quote was given on site after a thorough examination of our system)- I have no way of checking whether he did a good job or rushed through it because he thought we weren’t paying enoughI give 3 stars because the job was eventually completed but I had to hound them and argue to get them to do the job they originally agreed to for the price they quoted. If you want the full story, read on.I asked them to come give me a quote for a water softener and descaling - they originally told me it would be a free quote and then tried to change that to be $100 for a “service call”, which I had to argue to avoid.The tech was friendly and helpful, so I agreed to do the descaling for about $500. After maybe 45 minutes he said he couldn’t do the descaling because he didn’t know if the unit was designed to be descaled, and he admitted he didn’t really do anything for me. He charged me a reduced price but still over $250, and I didn’t think I had any choice. After he left I called the boiler manufacturer and within 10 minutes found out it should be descaled.It took two weeks of me calling over and over, speaking to different receptionists and hearing various reasons they couldn’t do it yet or couldn’t confirm a price and then they would just stop calling me back. Finally I was told I would have to pay the full original price on top of what I already paid. I said that was unacceptable because all I am asking is for them to do what they originally said they would do and I am willing to pay the difference.I was told a manager would reach out to me to discuss. Mid afternoon I called again and was told he had just stepped out but would call as soon as he got back. Finally the next morning he called back and agreed to do what I was asking, and a tech came the next week. The tech was at our house for about 1.5 hours and complained that we were underquoted but still honoured the price.
