Water Heater Service in Fairfax

Helping You Choose the Make & Model that’s Right for Your Home

Water heaters create the types of problems that many homeowners react to with an out of sight out of mind philosophy. Even so, for those who are paying attention, a water heater will give signals that there is a problem. If you get right on it and call for a repair or a replacement, you can save yourself the discomfort of being out of hot water or worse. If you don’t fix a water heater before the problems get to their worst stages, you could end up with a crawl space or even a floor full of water. Your Fairfax water heater services need to be a priority when managing the comfort and safety of your home or office.

When your water heater is losing efficiency, it will develop characteristics that may clue you into developing issues. Yet these characteristics may be hard to distinguish from the regular characteristics of a fully functioning stock plumbing system. If water heaters blew out all at one time, equipment problems would be easy to diagnose. Instead, they usually go out a little at a time, or one element at a time, causing a lot of discomfort and increased utility bills in the process. You may not notice initially when a pipe running from your water heater to a fixture - whether it’s a faucet or a shower valve - takes awhile to heat up. However, it is important to take note if you find that your water heater's performance is continuing to get worse.

Thankfully, Home Service Doctors offers repair and replacement options to keep your water warm at all times. Our experienced Fairfax plumbers provide service designed to catch even the trickiest issues as soon as possible, and are equipped with the tools and technology to upgrade you to a modern, energy-efficient water heater which will last for years to come.

Tankless Water Heaters

If you own a conventional water heater, then you are well-aware of the fact that the units have a large, 40 to 80-gallon storage tank that is most likely taking up valuable square footage in your utility room or basement. However, as long as your water heater is working, isn’t too noisy, and is able to deliver hot water when you need it, then why should you have to worry?

Maybe not everything with your conventional tanked unit has been fine, though. Have you been forced to having to take cold showers at night after the rest of your family has used up all of the hot water? Have you been shocked with the high costs of your latest utility bills? Or maybe you’re just tired of having what seems to be a fragile, energy-inefficient waste of space in your home!

You aren’t alone. That’s why so many Americans are upgrading to tankless water heating, and it’s why Home Service Doctors offers installation and maintenance of this new technology. Tankless water heaters are a far more advanced and efficient technology than your conventional tank type.

Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater

If you switch to tankless from traditional water heating, you will immediately begin to enjoy the benefits of:

  • Endless hot water: Tankless units heat water whenever you need it, and there’s no stored water to waste heating on or need to refill.
  • Savings on your utility bills: By providing a 30-35% energy efficiency increase, tankless units typically save customers up to $300 each year.
  • More space: A tankless unit is about the size of a carry-on suitcase, so you won’t have to take up unnecessary space in your utility room or basement for it to fit. In fact, tankless water heats can be installed on practically any wall in your home.
