Repairing vs Replacing Your Hot Water Heater

If the tank is not entirely damaged, then the repair is possible. Faulty gas lines and thermostats are simple repairs. However, if the tank shows signs of corrosion, if small puddles form under or around your unit, a corroded tank or a crack in lining the may be the culprit. We would then recommend replacing your hot water heater before it bursts and floods the area, creating an even larger headache.

How to Avoid Water Heater Problems?

Water heater problems can be avoided with regular internal rod replacement. When you choose Cardwell HVAC Heating & Air Conditioning, twice a year we will drain your tank and inspect the its interior walls and anode rods in the center of the tank for issues and will replace your heater’s rods when necessary in order to keep rusting away.

Call us if you have any doubt that your water heater is not in tip-top shape and our knowledgeable technicians will come inspect it for you.
