Temple, TX, Water Heater Repair Solution

If you’ve noticed a lot of issues with your water heater lately, like unusual sounds, insufficient heating and leaks, just say “FIX IT!” and call us. We can diagnose and fix problems with any water heater, whether it’s tankless or traditional.

The professional plumbers at FIX IT! provide quality plumbing solutions in Central Texas to repair malfunctioning water heaters. Most water heaters quit because of incorrect water pressure, mineral or calcium buildup, rust accumulation, malfunctioning thermostats, an old sacrificial anode rod, or loose parts.

Sacrificial Anode Rod

One of the most common issues is the sacrificial anode rod, which is a long metal rod that runs through the inside of your water heater tank. Since it’s made of magnesium or aluminum, it uses an electrochemical process to attract mineral particles like iron or limestone floating in the water, thereby keeping the tank from corroding by corroding itself. This “sacrifice” allows the tank to last longer.

The anode rod should be replaced every one to three years—or when over 50% is corroded. This frequency could be affected by hard water or if you have a soft water system. Keep in mind that if you try to replace the anode rod yourself, you could negate the product’s warranty, so call a professional just to be sure.

Austin, TX, Water Heater Replacement and Tankless Water Heaters

Every water heater is going to stop working. Most do it within about 7-10 years. A lot of the newer models can last longer, but tankless water heaters come with a 25-year warranty.

Whether you choose to replace your current water heater with a traditional one or one that’s tankless, here’s a guide to help you decide which one is the best one to keep up with your hot water usage, energy cost and the cost of the water heater.

  1. Convenience

How many times have you been in a rush to get out of the house after everyone else has taken their showers or baths, only to find that there’s no hot water? The more people in your home, the more volume of hot water you need to run showers, the kitchen sink, the dishwasher and the washing machine.

Tank water heaters are priced based upon the number of gallons that they can keep hot. The more often a tank water heater is used, the more water flows through the tank, heats and reheats (known as recovery time), making it harder for the heater to keep up.

Tankless water heaters provide water on demand, so they don’t have a huge tank where they store water. Instead, a tankless water heater heats water within seconds, making it instantly available for showers, dishwashing, etc. The newer tankless water heaters don’t have the wait time to allow the water to heat up that the older ones do. In fact, they make hot water as long as they have a water supply.

  1. Energy use

No matter where you live and what your income is, energy consumption is a concern for most people. Whether they’re concerned about financial costs or the environment, everyone feels the reward of using less energy to run their home’s appliances. Tank water heaters store hot water and keep it hot even when you’re not using it, so you’re paying the bill around the clock. Since tankless water heaters heat water only when you need it and heat only the water you use, they save energy, lowering your utility bill.

  1. Cost

Before you decide on which type of water heater is right for you, consider the cost. Traditional tank water heaters are less expensive than tankless ones. But when you consider that a tankless water heater lasts more than twice as long as a tank water heater, uses less energy (about 60% less compared to a 50-gallon electric water heater) and cuts back on the wait time for hot water, it’s a long-term investment that you’ll definitely recoup over time.

Get Temple, Texas, water heater services from FIX IT!. We’ll give you expert advice on choosing the right type of water heater for your home, based on the size, number of users, frequency of use, amount of heated water, comfort levels and energy-saving features. We offer flexible financing options to make your choice more affordable.

Water Heater Maintenance

 If you have a tank water heater, be sure that it’s running smoothly and efficiently by performing regular checkups that can prolong the life of your hot water heater. Regular draining and anode rod inspections can detect potential major breakdowns so you can address them before they require you to replace your unit.

Westin went above a beyond
Came out, fixed my issues, I asked them to identify any other issues. He suggested a couple, gave me a quote and got it done all in a few hours. They'll be my go to for my home and anyone that asks. Easy, honest, simple and informative. He fixed the relief valve so if it blows it won't ruin my home, fixed the expansion tank leak and replaced problematic shark it connectors at the water heater. All in I think 4 hours or less depending on if you count the time he took to grab parts. All around very happy. $585 was the cost. I called around for like work and the price for just fixing my expansion tank came close to the above cost from competitors in the area. Solid solid people here.

TLDR - Everyone is awesome - Heather, Kevin, Joey - A+++ Thanks so much!! While it was such a headache to deal with my warranty company and try to get them to honor their contract, the silver lining is that's how I learned of Fix It Services and ended up using them to replace my hot water heater without using the warranty after all (grr). I have nothing but great things to say about everyone we've dealt with. The first technician who came out to diagnose the issue, Westin, was polite and quick to do what needed done and refer back to the warranty company. We ended up having some other technicians come out to give us a quote on the repair outside of warranty, and that was Kevin and Joey. They were fantastic. They took their time to answer our questions not only about the water heater but also about some water pressure concerns we had, and even talked about our water softener. They were very friendly, funny, and knowledgable. They did not mind spending time talking to us and swapping stories (and no, not because they were being paid for every minute they stayed either... lol). While we still tried to sort out our warranty issues over the course of a few days, Heather in the office continued to be such a delight to work with. She understood all of our frustrations (as did Kevin & Joey), worked really hard to be an advocate for us with the warranty company and dealt with a lot of back and forth phone calls and questions of both my husband and I while also dealing with the warranty company. Every single time we spoke to her she was polite and friendly, truly sounded eager to help and was not once bothered with us when we kept having to take some more time to decide how we wanted to move forward. - She did everything she could to swap schedules around and keep the technicians available for us as soon as possible, as we had already been without hot water for over a week. Kevin & Joey came back out to do the job, after waiting around on us for awhile to make the decision this morning. They were just as friendly as before, and were super efficient and professional in getting the install done correctly and quickly. They answered some more questions, provided some knowledge on flushing our system, tested our water hardness for us, and provided an estimate for a water softener. Every step of the process working with this company was a breeze and that's not easy to say about a lot of companies and contractors that are "randomly" assigned by warranty companies.

I broke off a water pipe 14inches inside the outer wall of our home. They came in and fixed the problem within two hours of the call. Kevin and Joey were professional and quick. The kind of people that measure twice and cut once. Exactly who you want to have work on your home. Ask for those guys.

Mother in law was charged 180.00 dollars to repair a leaky bathroom faucet. The faucet actually leaks more now. She has tried to contact the person who did the repair to get an invoice but hasnt had any luck. Sounds like the guy saw his chance to take advantage of an elderly person and did so. I would definitely think twice before using this company, nothing worse than someone that takes advantage of the elderly.

Fix it is amazing if you need anything plumbing/ AC related for your home. They were able to come out same day and fix the issue. Super friendly and explained everything to me so I understood the issue and could prevent it from happening again. Highly recommend!!

I had a leaky fitting for the hose outside of my house - from previous experience with other fittings on my house, I knew the fittings on this house were a bit tricky. Deonte and Tabitha arrived quickly, correctly diagnosed the issue, and had the problem resolved quickly, especially given the trickiness of the way my house was originally plumbed. Plus, they were very friendly and played with my dog whenever he wandered by.

A big shout out to Zac and Diante, who quickly came to my home, quite a distance away, to repair my hot water heater. They were professional, kind, helpful, and fun. I had several issues which they took care of; even traveling twice during the visit to obtain needed parts. Diante also walked me through how to easily flush my water heater for yearly maintenance. Great service!!
