WATER HEATER REPAIR

Even if you have a small leak in your water heater, it can cause a tremendous amount of damage. It must be addressed quickly. In many cases, leaks can be repaired without replacing your water heater. The first objective is to find where the leak is coming from. Cleaning up the spillage is important in avoiding damage and mold, but the problem won’t go away if it’s not addressed at the source. If the water heater is leaking, turn off the water, shut off its power or gas source, and check the unit. Common sources of leaks include the pipe inlet/outlet, pressure relief valve, drain valve, or a crack in the bottom of the tank. If the inbound water pressure is too high, this can cause a problem as well. A professional technician can perform any repair. If any components and connections need to be tightened, we can handle it. Our technicians can perform a thorough inspection and drain the water heater tank to determine where the problem is. They can perform repairs when possible and recommend solutions such as replacing your old water heater with a newer, more reliable model.

WATER HEATER MAINTENANCE

Maintenance can boost the performance, efficiency, and longevity of water heaters. One of the most important routine tasks is to flush a water heater of sediment and debris that can build up in the tank and water lines. Eventually these can clog up the appliance and cause serious damage. Other important forms of water heater maintenance include adjusting the water temperature, testing the temperature-pressure-release valve, and insulating the pipe to prevent condensation. Insulating the water tank can improve efficiency and performance. Fortunately, each water heater technician that works for ACKG Services is familiar with maintenance, so can address tasks you may not be equipped to deal with. We can help improve the function and longevity of your water heater, possibly saving on long-term costs and avoiding early replacement.
