      Repairing vs Replacing a Water Heater

      It’s never easy to determine when to replace an expensive appliance. If the cost of your water heater repair is 50% or more of the value of a replacement heater tank, then you should replace it, rather than repair it.

      Some more reasons to consider water heater replacement instead of repair are below:


      • The water heater model is out of service
      • Parts are unavailable
      • Cost and frequency of repair
      • Efficiency breakdown

        How much does it cost to repair a water heater?

        Some water heater repairs are quick, easy, and inexpensive. If you have an older plumbing network and an aged H2O tank, event the smaller issues can cause a chain reaction and increase the amount of labor and parts needed to resolve the issue. Some repairs may cost less than $100, while others could be as high as $1,000 or more. The type of repair, location, and time needed to perform the repair is the biggest cost drivers. We offer a free home inspection to determine if your hot water heater is worth repairing or replacing.

            Electric Water Heater Repair

            The most common problem with an electric water heater is caused by a failed heating element. The heating element is an inexpensive part that is fairly easy to replace. Additional electric water heater repairs are caused by the following below:

            • Improper settings
            • High water pressure
            • Lack of tank maintenance
            • Old age

            Gas Water Heater Repair

            When your gas water heater isn’t working, check the pilot light first. If the pilot light is out, start by following the instructions posted on the tank to relight it. A dead pilot light is the most common gas water tank issue.

            Additional common gas tank repairs are below:

            • Blocked gas valve
            • Defective thermocouple
            • Low gas pressure
            • Air in the gas line
            • Broken ignitor button
            • Gas leaks

            Gas water tanks can be difficult to diagnose, but we can help you identify and repair even the toughest plumbing problems with ease. Call Sacramento Plumbing Solutions for your water heater services today.

            Tankless Water Heater Repair

            Tankless water heater repairs are less likely to occur because these water heaters are more reliable. After about 15 to 20 years, some form of repair is inevitable. With routine maintenance, you can reduce the frequency and overall cost to own a tankless water heater, however.

            You may need a tankless water heater repair if you are experiencing the following:


            • Lack of hot water
            • Fluctuating temperature
            • Leaking pipe
            • Inconsistent water pressure
            • Incorrect thermostat settings
