Water Heater Repair in Raleigh, NC

Ice-cold showers are no laughing matter, so it's smart to know exactly who to turn to for prompt water heater repair. It's easy to forget your water heater is even there until it develops a problem, but ARS/Rescue Rooter Raleigh can provide regular water heater services to keep it in good working order for longer.

Yet unexpected problems are always a small possibility despite regular maintenance.

  • Your unit emits an unusual odor when it's in use
  • You find metal or rust pieces in you tank's water, potentially caused by a faulty anode rod

You have a multitude of choices for picking your ideal water heater, including traditional tank units, high efficiency models, and tankless water heaters. Fortunately, you can count on our plumbing experts to recommend a water heater suitable for your needs, and tackle any issues as soon as they arise.

Water heaters have a limited lifespan, which means reduced efficiency and occasional issues are inevitable over time. A good rule of thumb when you're unsure whether to fix a broken water heater or replace it is to never spend more on repair than half the cost of replacing the water heater. Long-term, your investment in a new heater will be more economical than ongoing repair costs. 

Water Heater Installation Services

Has it gotten to the point where you have a 50/50 chance of getting a hot shower in the morning? 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 Raleigh. 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.

Reasons to Replace Your Water Heater

  • You've had your current unit for more than 10 years

  • Your system is leaking

  • You notice your water has an “off” smell

  • Temperature of water is inconsistent

Your perfect water heater will differ depending on your hot water expectations, your budget, and the layout of your home. When picking a new water heater, you should consider whether you want tank or tankless, the length of the warranty, fuel types (gas or electric), operating costs, and future repair and maintenance requirements. Our plumbers have the experience to explain your options and help you choose the best unit for your needs.

An important factor to consider when you're deciding on a new water heater is whether you want to go with a tank or tankless unit. One benefit of a tankless unit is that the same water is not being heated and reheated in the tank, saving you money. You'll also observe that waiting for the water to warm up takes less time. A tankless water heater may cost more to install, but in the long run, you'll save.

Raleigh Tankless Water Heater Installation

ARS/Rescue Rooter is the preferred plumbing company in Raleigh for new tankless water heater installation and repairs. If it's time to have your existing water heater replaced, perhaps now is the time to look at a tankless heater.

Choosing to install a new tankless water heater provide a number of benefits, such as:

Reduced energy usage

A traditional water heater stores gallons of hot water, which can take a long time to heat up. A tankless water heater heats only the water that is needed, providing unmatched system efficiency so it uses less energy than a traditional water heater.

Increased efficiency

A tankless water heater lasts longer than a traditional water heater because there is no tank to corrode or rust. It also doesn't have to constantly reheat cold water, so it's more efficient overall.

Endless hot water

A tankless water heater provides hot water on demand, so you never have to worry about running out.

ARS/Rescue Rooter is the best choice for tankless water heater installation and repairs in Raleigh because our technicians are experts producing quality work and the best price. We can help you choose the right tankless water heater for your home and we'll ensure that it's installed properly so you can enjoy all of the benefits listed above.

If you're experiencing problems with your tankless water heater in your Raleigh home, we can also provide repair services. Contact us today to learn more about tankless water heaters and how ARS/Rescue Rooter can help you install or repair one in your home.

Before Replacing or Installing

Before replacing your current water heater, our courteous technicians will ask a few questions to determine if replacement is the best option for you, such as:

What size water heater does your home need?

Too large of a water heater will cause extremely high utility bills. Too small of a water heater will not provide your family with the right amount of hot water.

What is your fuel source?

Most water heaters are either electric or gas fueled, and are not interchangeable.

Do you want to save on energy costs?

A large amount of energy is used to run a water heater, which can show in high utility bills. If you’re concerned about your utility bills, a high-efficiency water heater may be a great option for your family.

The Importance of Water Heater Services in North Carolina

The weather in North Carolina can be extremely cold in the winter. For example, a weather station at Mount Mitchell recorded a temperature of minus 34 degrees Fahrenheit on January 21, 1985. This is the coldest temperature for the state on record. Temperatures can dip below zero from time to time, and when it does, it can cause pipes to freeze and burst, leading to costly repairs and extensive damage to your home. It also means your water heater may have to work a lot harder than usual. This is why water heater repair is so important.
