Water Heater Repair

There is a long list of issues that could be affecting your water heater. In some instances, a tank water heater will be too costly to fix while tankless heaters have a longer life span. Nevertheless, both versions still require maintenance and the occasional repair. Vines Plumbing can attend to all types of water heater repair in Myrtle Beach, S.C. 

Conventional heating products

There are common problems that can be fixed with water heater repair to a conventional model that has a tank. Repair is a much cheaper alternative to replacement as it is important to get the most out of your water heater while you can. Here is a look at some of the common repairs conducted on a conventional water heater:

  • Broken heating elements
  • Bad thermostat
  • Faulty valve
  • Flue obstruction
  • Malfunctioning thermocouple

There are lots of things that can go wrong with a tank water heater, but many of the issues come with warning signs. Common problems include rust-colored, pooling, leaking, temperature issues, unusual sounds, and insufficient quantities of hot water. When one of these issues is impacting your water heater, there is no need to rush out and buy a new one as help is just a phone call away.

Tankless heating products

Many new homes feature tankless water heaters as they have their share of advantages. While they cost more than tank heaters, they have a longer life span and usually require less repair and maintenance. That does not mean tankless water heaters are immune to problems. Here is a list of the common issues that call for tankless heater repair:

  • Mineral or sediment buildup
  • Overloaded system
  • Blockage of air supply
  • Restricted venting
  • Excessive corrosion

Some of these issues are brought on by poor installation but that is not the only cause. Homes that have hard water put excess wear and tear on water heaters. The computer system in a tankless water heater is also subject to overloading and that could cause a complete shutdown. Warning signs are not as vast as they are in tank heaters as some issues will cause the unit to shut down. Tankless heaters should also give off an endless supply of hot water and when that halts, then you know there is a problem. The flame and the ignition could also stop working and any of the indicators or trouble signs are a prime reason to contact Vines Plumbing for Myrtle Beach water heater repair.
