Affordable Hot Water Heater Repair in Portland

Not hot water for your shower this morning? A morning ice-cold shower is something no one wants, so it's helpful to know who to count on when you require water heater repair in the Portland metro area. Small things like the pilot light going out are easy to fix, but sometimes it's that small issue that can turn into a more costly, larger problem. Is your faucet running rusty-looking water? This can be a sign of a more serious project needing professional water heater emergency services, fast.

It's easy to take your water heater for granted and forget about it until there's a problem, but regular maintenance from Rescue Rooter Portland will help keep it running optimally for longer. Even with frequent checkups and routine maintenance services, problems can still pop up. So how do you know if you're in need of some timely water heater repairs? Here are some signs your family should look out for:

  • Your hot water isn't hot enough—or it's much too hot—and doesn't last as long as it used to
  • You notice metal fragments or rust in your tank's water, which may suggest you have an anode rod that should be replaced
  • Your heater is leaking, indicating that the liner has corroded or the drain pan is improperly installed
  • The unit emits an unusual odor when it's in use

Over time, hot water heaters will break down, which can reduce the efficiency of the entire system. If you're having trouble figuring out if you should repair or replace 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. Over the long run, you will spend less installing a new water heater than on escalating, ongoing plumbing repair service for your old unit.

Portland Hot Water Heater Flush and Safety Inspection

Water heaters are often out of sight, out of mind—until you want to take a relaxing bath and find that the water is lukewarm or even worse that your water heater is leaking due to years of corrosion. Since your water heater is an integral part of your family’s comfort, call Rescue Rooter Portland to have your water heater checked at least once a year. Every year you missing maintaining water heaters, the efficiency of your unit could drop. This is why it’s so important to have a professional plumber do a regular water heater flush and safety inspection.

Our steps include the following but are not limited to:

  • Inspect controls, wiring, and heating elements
  • Drain or flush tank and remove any sediment; the water heater may need to be flushed several times until the water heater runs clear
  • Test temperature and pressure relief valve
  • Inspect water lines and drain valve
  • Remove and check anode rod condition. The anode rod is what we call a “sacrificial” rod—it diverts the corrosion away from the tank to itself—so it may need to be replaced if it’s worn out.
  • Plus more safety and efficiency checks

Upon completion, we will present you with our findings, share any recommendations and potential concerns about your water heater. This is where we would consult with you on any additional repairs or suggested upgrades to maximize your family’s comfort. For high-efficiency water heating, you may want to consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. We have many featured tank or tankless systems our technicians can share with you. Call us for more price details.

We provide the best water heater services for residential and commercial Oregon customers can look for. Need emergency water heating service now? Contact us at 503-210-5855.
