Needing an emergency water heater repair in Clearwater is generally an event that will take place at the most undesirable times we understand. With water heaters, there are generally signs leading up to a larger issue with the heater. On the whole, hot water heaters perform relatively maintenance free, and only need some self maintenance each year (though many homeowners do not get around it). However, water heaters are the most dangerous appliance in the home, hence the reason why we take their installation and service extremely seriously, installing the heater safely and to code.
We are a locally owned and operated company right here in Clearwater FL, and our water heater maintenance technicians are staff members, not subcontractors. And, of course, we are licensed, bonded and insured. Our customers have called on us for a long time for their water heater repair service requirements. We also prefer to share as much information in our blog as we can in terms of the best ways to carry out routine upkeep on ones own water heater to help keep it working from peak performance.
For electric water heaters which are not making hot water, first check to find out if the fuse in the breaker box is tripped. In case it is not, we advise just turn the power off and let us know to come have a look at the heater. For gas water heaters not generating hot water, first look and see if the pilot is still lit. When it is not, try relighting it.
We do not advise attempting to take care of a water heater if one is not sure what one should do! It is a really hazardous home appliance. We are extremely trained with performing water heater repairs. If one was to attempt any repairs, certainly turn the power off with an electric water heater and shut off the gas for gas water heaters to start with!
When the water heater storage tank has water leaking, turn the water off leading to the storage tank. It should be a gate-style valve or a ball-style valve. The ball-style will turn 180 degrees and a gate-style have to be turned clockwise until it stops turning. Sometimes these valves break. If that is the case, or if it does not turn, shut off the water to the house. If you are successful in getting the water valve off, it still may be leaking and not wishing to have all the water contents of the tank flood the location the water heater is found in, attach a hose to the drain located at the bottom of the storage tank and extend the hose to either a gutter drain or a sink to clear the tank when possible. If there is extreme rust and buildup inside the water heater it can injure the lawn in the backyard or stain a concrete driveway or sidewalk. When the water is effectively shut off and being drained if need be, shut the power or gas off to the heater.
When the smell of gas is present, switch the gas off leading to the hot water heater instantly! Afterwards, give us a call. If you still smell gas once the gas line is turned off, call the gas company as well to aid in seeing where the gas leakage is coming from.
