Water Heater Repair

It's easy to forget about your water heater until you encounter a problem, but with the help of ARS/Rescue Rooter Boston, you can get regular tune-ups to keep it functioning efficiently for longer. Even when you stay on top of maintenance, unexpected issues are bound to happen.

So what are the warning signs that you'll need water heater repairs in the immediate future?

  • You notice a leak, suggesting the drain pan is faulty or that the heater's internal liner is starting to corrode
  • There's an unpleasant smell coming from the unit when you use hot water
  • If you see fragments of metal or rust in tank water, you likely need to replace an anode rod
  • And, most noticeably, your hot water is either too hot, too cold, or simply doesn't last the way it used to

From traditional tank water heaters to high-efficiency and tankless models, choosing the right unit and making sure it's in working condition can be complicated. Our experts are always available to give you advice on the best water heater for you, diagnose any problems, and conduct repairs. The specific kind of repairs you may need will differ depending on your water heater's model, but you can feel good knowing ARS/Rescue Rooter Boston can cover all your needs.

All water heaters inevitably show signs of wear and tear as they age, gradually losing their ability to heat water consistently. It can be tricky to tell when you should repair your water heather or just replace it, but we generally recommend that a repair is not worth it if it's going to cost more than half the price of a new unit. Sooner or later, the cost of a new water heater will be less than the cost of continuing to pay for repairs for your existing unit.

Water Heater Installation

Are your daily showers hit or miss when it comes to hot water? It may be time for a new water heater and that means you'll also require water heater installation from the professionals at ARS/Rescue Rooter Boston. Our plumbers can assist you with finding the right type of water heater to fit your needs and install the unit according to your schedule.

  • There is a leak around the base of the unit
  • Your unit is more than 10 years old
  • Water temperature isn't consistent
  • There's a strange smell or color to your water

Your optimal water heater will depend on your budget, your home's layout and your specific hot water needs.

Things to consider while shopping for a new water heater should include fuel type (gas or electric), the number of people living in your home, whether you'd prefer tank or tankless, the length of the warranty, potential maintenance and repair needs, and operating costs. Our experts would be happy to explain your options and suggest the right unit for you.

Boston Tankless Water Heater Installation

The main question when deciding on a new water heater is whether you should go with a traditional tank model or a tankless unit. A tankless water heater does not heat and re-heat the same water in the tank, saving you money. Although it costs more upfront, in the long run a tankless water heater is a money-saver.

 Water Heater Inspections

It is recommended that you have your water heater inspected at least once a year. ARS/Rescue Rooter makes it simple by providing annual maintenance plans for your Boston area water heater tank. Our Boston plumbers will drain your tank and check for rust, wear, or corrosion; replace damaged anode rods; test the pressure relief valve; and more in order to ensure your system performs to its fullest.

So I've used ARS before. Amazing service. There was a hiccup in my service call this time around. It took a whole day for them to get to me. BUT in their defense, they did schedule me for an hour after I called and before first shift came in. And I understand when you start your day short staffed, it's damn hard to catch up. My call was not an emergency, so I am okay with what happened. Mainly because they called me and told me what was going on. People get sick, ish hits the fan. As long as im not freezing my butt off..we can work it out. It helped that they provided a coupon for a future service. Full disclosure and all. I have an older home with steam radiators. The gentleman who responded to my service call, Kyle, was friendly, patient, and honest. My experience with all the staff I have interacted with at ARS has been positive. I am thankful Kyle took quite a bit of time to allow for my system to make the noise we had called about. He took that time to educate myself and my husband a little more about our heating system. It didn't end up making the noise, but the probable issue that Kyle came up with makes sense, and if my boiler ever sounds like that again (like it's about to make a space launch lolololol) we have a plan and I know who to call.

Timothy was wonderful, professional, and completed the work in a timely manner. He was very caring and considerate to my mothers questions and needs. The price is very reasonable and well worth it. I will definitely recommend ARS services without hesitation

ARS installed a new central air unit at my residence yesterday. The gentlemen that came were on time, professional and exceeded our expectations. It was raining outside and they cleaned my kitchen from footprints they tracked in from outside (wasn’t expecting that and it was so very nice of them) and swept up my hallway after they installed our thermostat.
