When to Repair a Water Heater
Water heater problems can often be solved with a simple repair. The best approach depends on the age of the water heater and cause of the problem. A repair may be the most cost-effective option for a water heater that is five years old or less and just needs a malfunctioning part replaced.
Water heater problems can often be solved by replacing components, such as:
- Heating elements
- Pressure relief valves
- Pilot light problems
- A loose connection
We provide water heater repair in San Jose for all water heater brands and models. Our water heater technicians receive ongoing training to stay up to date on all new technologies. This ensures that we are prepared to accurately diagnose and repair any problem with any type of water heater.
When to Install a Replacement Water Heater
In addition to the specific problem with the water heater, the age of the unit can influence the decision between repair and replacement. The expected lifespan depends on the type of water heater and how well it was maintained. A well-maintained water heater with a storage tank may last up to 10 or 12 years, while a tankless model can last up to 20 years. Age is only one of several factors that we consider when recommending installation of a replacement water heater.
Water heater replacement is usually the best option when:
- The tank is too small to meet your hot water demand
- There is rust on the tank
- The tank is leaking
- Your hot water has a rust color
- Sediment build up causes loud noises
Our San Jose water heater technicians can evaluate your water heater to determine the cause of the trouble and recommend the best way to solve it. We can walk you through the options for water heater repair and replacement in San Jose and answer all your questions.

Are you tired of running out of hot water or dealing with a bulky and inefficient water heater? Consider upgrading to a tankless water heater! Unlike traditional tank water heaters, tankless models heat water on demand, providing an endless supply of hot water while saving space and energy.
Benefits of upgrading to a tankless water heater include:
- Endless hot water supply
- Reduced energy consumption and lower utility bills
- Longer lifespan than traditional tank water heaters
- Compact size, saving valuable space in your home

If replacement is required, you will need to choose the best water heater for installation in your home. We offer high quality traditional water heaters with a storage tank and tankless models. When you are replacing a tank water heater, the cheapest option would be to replace it with another water heater with a tank. However, these water heaters cost more to run because energy is used to keep the water hot in the storage tank. Additionally, tank models last about half as long as tankless water heaters.
Tankless water heaters heat the water instantly when you turn on a faucet or tap. This saves energy and ensures a constant supply of hot water. Whether you are choosing a tank or tankless model, it’s important to make sure the water heater is the right size to meet your hot water demand. We can calculate your hot water needs and recommend models that will supply plenty of hot water for your family.
Do Tankless Water Heaters Need to Be Serviced?
Yes, tankless water heaters should be serviced annually. Regular maintenance and cleaning can extend the lifespan and ensure efficiency and safety. It's important to flush out the mineral deposits that can build up over time and check for blockages or leaks. Additionally, it's essential to regularly check the parts of a tankless water heater, like the pressure relief valve and intake/outlet valves.
