How to know when you need water heater repair

  • Insufficient hot water supply.

    Lack of hot water could indicate a problem with the gas water heater's ignitor or the electric water heater's heating element. It could also suggest an issue with the thermostat.

  • Unusual sounds coming from your water heater.

    Unfamiliar popping or knocking sounds may imply sediment accumulation at the tank's bottom, requiring a plumber to flush it out. Flushing your water heater annually can prevent more costly repairs, such as a burnt-out heating element.

  • Discolored hot water (brown or rust-colored).

    Brown or rust-colored hot water typically signifies corrosion of the anode rod, which is responsible for preventing rusting within the tank. While this is normal for water heaters, it is advisable to replace the rod sooner rather than later.

  • Water leakage from water heater connections.

    If water is leaking from the connections to your water heater, a plumber can fix the issue. However, if the tank itself has a crack and is leaking, it is likely necessary to replace the entire water heater.

How Much Will It Cost?

Cost to repair a water heater repair

The cost for your water heater repair will depend on:

  • The type of repair.

    The repair cost primarily depends on the specific part of your water heater that requires fixing. Replacing a gas valve or heating element (for electric water heaters) typically incurs higher costs compared to tasks like replacing a thermocouple or flushing sediment from the tank.

  • Labor charges.

    Plumbers usually impose a "service charge" or "trip fee" which they may waive if you select them for the repair job. Additionally, the overall cost is influenced by whether the plumber charges fixed rates or operates on an hourly basis.

  • Warranty coverage:

    If your water heater is still within its warranty period (typically, a 1-year labor and 5-year manufacturer warranty), your repair expenses could be significantly reduced. To determine the validity of your warranty, reach out to the plumber who installed your tank.
