Many water heaters can be repaired. However, when dealing with a repair, it’s a good idea to consider an upgrade. The parts can be hard to find and take a few days to obtain. Many people also choose to upgrade to a larger, hotter or continuous use unit in areas with problems such as an inadequate hot water supply.

Water heaters can last up to 18 years when flushed annually and when there is water filtration before the heater. Many only see 10-12 years due to lack of maintenance. In areas like Alabaster, with heavy lime or calcium in the water, you’ll typically see even fewer years of service.

On average, it costs between $150-$400 to fix a water heater. Although, the price can fluctuate depending on if it is: 

  • A standard flushing of your system.
  • A repair or replacement of a broken component.
  • A repair of a minor or major leak. 

Sometimes the price to fix your hot water heater is more than the price to replace the entire system itself. If your system is over 10 years old, you may want to consider replacing it with a newer system. In any case, call us today and we can help you with your water heater repair needs. 

Plumbers, electricians and HVAC technicians can all fix water heaters. However, who you call will depend on the problem. 

Plumbers specialize in helping with any water temperature issues or tank issues you may be having. Electricians can assist with any wiring or power issues that are occurring within your system. HVAC technicians can generally fix any of these problems and others that may be occurring with your water heater.
