Water Heater Services from McCarthy Services


Water Heater Services

No one likes starting their day with an ice-cold shower—that's why it's essential to know who to call for expert water heater repair. Of course, scheduled maintenance from the experts at McCarthy Services can help keep your water heater in tip-top shape before major issues arise, even if you have a habit of taking it for granted. Sometimes unpredictable problems arise even if you keep up with maintenance. So what are some things to look for to check if you need water heater repair?

  • You notice metal or rust pieces in the tank water, which may indicate the need for an anode rod replacement
  • You find you water tank's heat doesn't last long and the water is either too cold or too hot
  • A smelly odor is coming from your unit when it heats water
  • Your tank is leaking, which can stem from a corroded liner or a malfunctioning drain pan

Tank vs. tankless water heaters

Picking the best water heater for your home—from high-efficiency to traditional or tankless—can be a tricky task, as can keeping up with frequent maintence. But you can rely on impartial recommendations and advice from our local plumbing professionals; they can assess the problem, perform timely repairs, and suggest the ideal model to meet your needs. The right kind of repair will vary based on the type of unit you own, but rest assured McCarthy Services has the knowledge to conduct a variety of repairs.

Repair or replace?

Over time water heaters will break down, which can reduce the efficiency of the entire system. If you're having trouble figuring out if you should replace or repair your unit, a good rule of thumb is that if a repair costs more than half the cost of a new water heater, it's time to purchase a new unit. The decision to replace your unit can save you money in the long-term because you won't have to worry about maintenance bills adding up with your current unit.

Water heater replacement and installation

When you're preparing for a shower, do you find yourself unsure of whether your hot water will work? Perhaps it's time to consider buying a new water heater, which means you may require expert water heater installation from McCarthy Services. Our plumbers will not only assist you in choosing the ideal water heater for your home, but they can also install the unit at a time that works for you. How do you decide when it's time to get a new water heater?

  • 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

Which unit should you choose?

The ideal water heater for your home will depend on a number of things like the layout of your home, your budget, and your expected hot water usage. When deciding on a new water heater, you should think about operating cost, future maintenance and repair requirements, fuel types (electric or gas), whether you want tank or tankless, as well as the number of people living in your home. Our plumbers have the experience to explain your options and help you choose the best unit for your needs.

Try going tankless

The most important question when choosing a new water heater is whether you should try a traditional tank model or a tankless unit. A tankless water heater saves money by not heating and re-heating the same water in the tank. You'll also observe that waiting for the water to warm up takes less time. Although you pay more upfront, a tankless water will benefit your wallet in the long run.
