Water Heater Repair, Service and Installation

Dependable water heater repair and emergency water heater services when you need them.

If you’ve ever experienced a morning shower without water heater service, you know that it’s a problem you want fixed immediately. Whether you’re in need of emergency water heater services or installation of a new system, Flotechs Plumbing & Heating is a reliable and trusted water heater repair service company to call.

Losing access to hot water is a major inconvenience, especially in the cool winter months. At Flotechs, our licensed and experienced plumbers provide Westchester residents with water heater repair and installation services they can trust.

Common Water Heater Problems

Age and a lack of upkeep of your hot water heater are two contributing factors to its failure. The Flotechs professionals can cleanse your tank, removing old sediment and mineral buildup that blocks heat transfer to the water. Performing this routine maintenance step once a year can help the tank run more efficiently and allow you to keep the system longer.

If you’re experiencing a loss of hot water, or the water barely gets warm, we can inspect the unit and give a proper evaluation of the tank. It’s important to note that not each request for water heater repair services means you need a new unit.

Some of the most requested water heater repairs include: 

  • Cracks / Dents: Physical damage to the unit can spark other malfunctions if not address immediately. Request hot water heater repair services right away if you notice cracks or dents.
  • Dirty Burner: A dusty pilot or burner assembly can cause the water heater to malfunction. Routine maintenance is the best way to avoid this issue.
  • Electrical Component Failure: When the electrical portion of the hot water heater shorts out or the wires corrode, you may completely lose access to hot water.
  • Thermocouple Glitches: Gas water heaters are equipped with this safety device. The thermocouple senses with the pilot light isn’t lit and closes the gas valve.
  • Thermostat Malfunction: If the thermostat that control the temperature of the hot water is broken, the water may turn frigid or freezing. Either way, it’s time to call a professional plumber.

Most water heater systems last 10 to 15 years, depending on the style, care and usage. If you want your unit to reach the full extent of that life cycle, routine maintenance is in order.

Tankless Water Heater Service

Tankless water heaters are a great way to reduce your environmental footprint. While these systems are designed to last 15 or more years, they do require normal cleaning. Scale buildup inside the system – mostly caused by hard water – can cause the water heater to completely fail. The descaling process should be completed at least once a year, and more frequently if you live in an area with hard water.

Whether you’re in need of water heater repair, replacement, or a complete installation, the Flotechs team can get your home back to normal in no time. Our technicians are trained to deal with gas water heaters, electric, tankless, and other models available. If you have questions about your hot water heater or its efficiency, don’t hesitate to contact the Flotechs team.

FAQs

 

How long do water heaters last?
Most traditional hot water heaters with proper maintenance will last between 8-12yrs. Some can last up to 20 plus years. PLEASE NOTE: Caution should be used as the tank itself is not visible and can be on the verge of leaking, and the likelihood of it still working properly and efficiently is highly decreased at this point.
How do tankless water heaters work?

Tankless water heaters—also called instantaneous, continuous flow, inline, flash, or on-demand, are water heaters that instantly heat water as it flows through the device, and do not retain any water internally like a standard tank hot water heater except for what is in the heat exchanger coil. Copper heat exchangers are preferred in these units because of their high thermal conductivity.

How big of a water heater do I need?

Storage Tank style hot water heaters:
When sizing the heater, we that into consideration the amount of people in the home, 3-4 people need a 40-50-gallon water heater; 5 or more people need a 50-80-gallon water heater. This also is dependent on the fixtures in the home. Large shower heads and high flow faucets consume more water.

Tankless water heaters’ capacities aren’t measured in gallons stored but in flow rates. A tankless water heaters’ flow rate should be equal to your family’s peak demand. This math will be determined after a field meet at the home.
