Signs You Should Consider a New Water Heater Replacement Service
Is your water heater in need of a new replacement? Most water heaters work for about 7-10 years before they require replacement. At that point, they start to lose efficiency and cost more to operate. If your water heater is old and worn out, consider a replacement soon.
Rising energy bills and frequent repairs are other reasons to get in contact with a water heater installation company. If the unit is losing efficiency and you are noticing higher energy bills, you should replace the unit to save money in the future. Replacing a constantly failing water heater with a new, modern unit will also prevent future repairs and save, even more, time and money in the future.
When you schedule water tank installations with First Choice Plus Plumbing, Restoration & Air, we will include a new water heater pan, an expansion tank, new copper on top of the heater, and a water shutoff valve with a permit. We install both electric and natural/propane water heaters!

What To Expect During a Water Heater Tune-up
Our experts recommend having your water heater professionally serviced and maintained at least once a year. This will help you avoid major breakdowns later by letting plumbers identify potential issues early. At First Choice Plus Plumbing, Restoration & Air, we provide tune-up services for electric and natural/propane units.
During these tune-ups, you can expect the expert to flush the system and drain the basin and remove sediment. Flushing your system regularly helps eliminate build-up. They will also inspect the inside of the unit for hairline fractures, cracks in the hoses, corrosion, and other signs of aging.
Our technicians will also inspect your expansion tank and determine if it needs to be replaced. Typically, these units need to be replaced every 2-3 years. An expansion tank equalizes pressure throughout the plumbing system by providing a space for hot water to flow into. Without a functioning unit, the pressure would be distributed to the entire plumbing system, straining it and decreasing its lifespan.
During a maintenance call, our plumbers can also replace or install new components that are malfunctioning, including a thermostat or a new anode rod.
We provide full services for both electric water heaters and natural and propane water heaters.
Electric Water Heater Repair & Installation
An electric water heater uses electricity instead of gas to heat water. These units can have tanks, or be tankless. These units should be flushed every 6-12 months to remove rust and corrosion, and the anode rod should be inspected annually.
During an electric water heater repair or tune-up, professionals will inspect numerous water heater elements, including a water heater thermostat, water heater pressure relief valve, water heater expansion tank, water heater ball valve, water heater nipples, water heater anode rod, more.
Natural & Propane Water Heater Repair & Installation
Natural and propane water heaters use gas and propane to heat the water in your system.
During an inspection of these gas water heaters, technicians will look at the gas water heater venting, gas valve, gas water heater thermocouple, gas water heater burner, gas water heater relief valve, gas water heater gas shut-off valve, and more.
