Water Heater Repairs in Delmarva

Water heaters are one of the most important appliances in modern homes. Over time, anode rods, valves, seals, and other components will wear out and require repair or replacement.

When your water heater stops delivering the reliable, energy-efficient performance it should, the team at F.H. Furr Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning & Electrical will perform the repairs required to restore your system. 

Contact F.H. Furr at 302-856-6311 today to schedule water heater repairs in Delmarva, DE.

The Need For Water Heaters in The Fall & Winter

Cooking, bathing, cleaning, and other activities require reliable hot water regardless of the season. However, you’ll depend on your water heater more in the winter than in summer. That’s one of the reasons we recommend scheduling water heater maintenance in the late summer or early fall.

From experience, we know that ensuring your water heater is in excellent condition and properly insulated and winterized before the weather cools off is the best way to make sure you don’t suffer a sudden failure on a cold winter morning.  

Call 302-856-6311 to book reliable water heater repairs in the Delmarva area.

When Do Water Heater Problems Require Repair?

We recommend scheduling a service whenever you notice an issue with your water heater. Some issues are small and require little more than tightening a valve or making a minor adjustment. Conversely, other issues require critical repairs, and it’s best to have a licensed and insured technician inspect your unit to determine the cause of the problem.

Some common signs your water heater needs a service include:

  • Visible leaks
  • Yellow pilot light
  • Visible corrosion
  • Discolored water (brownish or cloudy)
  • Rotten egg odors
  • Rumbling/grumbling/bubbling sounds
  • Diminished capacity 
  • Short-cycling
  • Metallic-tasting water

Common Causes Of Water Heater Failure

Water heaters are durable, but they’re not designed to last forever. With proper care and attention to maintenance, you can expect a conventional water heater to provide eight to 12 years of operation, and a tankless water heater can last 15 to 20 years. In addition to age, these are among the most common signs of failure:

  • Slow leaks
  • Incorrect water pressure
  • Faulty electrical connections
  • Loose components
  • Malfunctioning thermostat
  • Mineral buildup
  • Missing anode rod

Preventative Maintenance Tips

There are many steps you can take to protect your water heater from failure. Staying on top of these preventative maintenance tasks will help improve your water heater’s performance and energy efficiency.

These steps will also alleviate the risk of sudden failure and the need for premature replacement.

  • Flush the water heater every six to 12 months (depending on age, hard water, and overall condition)
  • Check/change the anode rod as needed
  • Test thermostat and valves
  • Check insulation around pipes

The most important tip is to schedule annual water heater maintenance by calling F.H. Furr at 302-856-6311.
