Trusted Water Heater Services from MoreVent
If you need local water heater repair professionals in Delaware and Pennsylvania, turn to the qualified team at MoreVent. Our team recommends annual service to maximize the life of your equipment and minimize your monthly energy consumption. If a failure or malfunction does happen to occur, a water heater replacement may not be the best option. We’ll perform a thorough inspection and perform advanced diagnostics to provide you with a professional and honest assessment that will allow you to make a confident decision for your home.
Regular Maintenance Can Extend the Life of Your Water Heater
Having your unit professionally serviced each year will be the best way to keep it running reliably and avoid early failure. With proper care, a modern water heating system can last for 15 years or longer while still running at peak efficiency. When newer systems end up failing between six and 10 years, it often occurs because there was normal wear and tear that accumulated and was never assessed. Rely on MoreVent’s trained team for your water heater maintenance yearly. Also, utilize one of our water heater maintenance plans to keep your system operating at peak performance. We will come to your home, inspect your water heater, clean it, calibrate it, discuss its state with you and what you can expect, and answer any questions that you may have.
Typical Causes of Water Heater Repairs
If your water heater has stopped working completely, you’ll need professional help from the MoreVent team. There are also many other reasons that you may need to schedule our water heater repair services, including temperature fluctuations, a slow drip, odd sounds, and a discolored water supply.
Water Temperature Issues
If cold water is coming from your water heater, it may indicate that the heating element has failed. Water that is too hot or not hot enough may be a sign that the thermostat is not calibrated correctly or failing, and temperature fluctuations may reflect problems with either the heating element or the thermostat.
Leaking Can Occur
If there is a substantial leak, it’s usually due to the water tank itself having become compromised. But there are many other reasons that you may experience a slow drip or less substantial pooling of water. Reasons can include a bad T&P relief valve, improper water pressure, overheating, a bad gasket, or a stuck valve.
Strange noises coming from your water heater are typically due to sediment being built up over time. It is recommended that water heaters be flushed once a year. You can flush your water heater in response to the odd noises or have us do it, but if the accumulation is too much, then it may be necessary for a water heater replacement.
Rusty water is usually caused by corrosion of the tank’s inner lining, which is often times due to a bad anode rod. Muddy or murky water is typically caused by sediment build-up in the tank. Be mindful that not all water discoloration is due to your water heater. Make sure to check your cold water supply as well to make sure.
The Types of Water Heater Systems We Repair
The professionals at MoreVent provide water heater repair services for all different types of water heaters used in homes in Delaware and Pennsylvania. These include electric and gas tank water heaters, tankless water heaters, and also heat pump water heaters.
Conventional water heaters are available in electric and natural gas configurations. The tank sizes generally range from 20 to 80 gallons, but larger tanks are also available. Electric units are typically more efficient and tend to cost less upfront, but gas models are cheaper to run over the entirety and life of the system.
Tankless systems can run on electricity and natural gas. Tankless units heat water as you need it, which means that they can provide an endless supply of hot water. These systems tend to cost more upfront but are highly efficient, last for 20 years or more, and cost less money overall at the end of the day.
MoreVent also handles heat pump water heater systems. These systems are a highly efficient option that often times provide a faster return on investment compared to other solutions. Heat pump water heaters can be installed as a standalone unit or integrated into a home’s existing HVAC system.
MoreVent Also Handles Water Heater Replacements
The team at MoreVent will always recommend water heater repair when it is the best option, prior to recommending a replacement. Sometimes, however, your system may be beyond repair, and a replacement would make the most sense. If you have an older water heater or the repair is going to be particularly expensive, then a water heater replacement may provide you greater value over the next 15 years. If you choose to move forward with replacement, we’ll assess your household usage with you, explore the many options available with a focus on the styles that interest you, and help you make the best choice for you and your home. Our team can install your unit quickly and with precision, and you can count on MoreVent to be here to stand behind the work completed.
