Water Heater Installation

A water heater typically lasts 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is older and in need of an expensive part or repeated repairs, installing a new unit will save you money in the long run.

If corrosion is visible, for example, and the tank leaks, it is time to install a new unit.

A rusted or leaky water heater can burst and flood your home with gallons of water that may damage the floor and nearby appliances. You can avoid the risk of water damage in your home by replacing your aging water heater before it begins to corrode and leak.

Our experts at Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing will recommend solutions that make the best use of your dollars and suit your water usage needs.

Decatur Water Heater Repairs

Your water heater needs attention if your tap water is lukewarm, varies in temperature, or quickly goes from hot to cold. The problem may be a failed drip tube, the component that conveys cold water to the bottom of your unit's tank for heating. A broken heating element also could be the cause.

Other signs your heater needs a professional assessment:

  • The thermostat in your water heater may be damaged or simply on the wrong setting if your water temperature is either extremely cold or too hot.
  • Popping or banging sounds indicate sediment buildup on the bottom of the tank. Sediment that accumulates on the heating element can keep your water from heating efficiently. It can also worsen your water quality.
  • Rusty-looking water may signal corrosion inside the tank and a deteriorated anode rod.
  • Corrosion can lead to leaks.

We can repair your water heater by swapping out defective parts, flushing the tank to eliminate sediment, or replacing the anode rod before it completely deteriorates. In some cases, however, it makes more sense financially to replace a unit rather than spend money on repairs.

Maintaining Your Water Heater

Preventative maintenance extends the life of your water heater, just as it does with other appliances in your home. We inspect essential components and safety features during a maintenance visit. Our pros can flush the tank, diagnose potential problems, and replace malfunctioning parts.

Remove all the worries of trying to keep up with your maintenance schedule. Join our Skyward Comfort Club and rest easy knowing you have a trusted professional watching over your plumbing equipment.

“Both Austin Z. and Chris O. were very professional. They performed warranty repair on our Rheem Hot Water Heater. In chatting with Austin regarding best ideas for future water system setups it was obvious he had been in the business a long time.”

“I had a leak in my gas line to the water heater over the weekend and had to have my gas shut off, so I had been without hot water for a couple of days. When I called other services first thing Monday, they were unable to come out for a week or more. The only other company potentially available that day was very short with me over the phone, as though she didn’t have time for my problems. She reluctantly offered to try to squeeze me in but wouldn’t guarantee they would make it out. Then I called Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. There were no issues with getting someone out, in fact they were here within 2 hours of my call. The technician was great! Even though he didn’t have the right part with him, he was able to find one quickly and came right back to finish the repair. I had hot water back by lunchtime! Overall, I received outstanding service from Skyward and would highly recommend them to anyone.”

“I messaged Skyward Heating, Air & Plumbing on Sunday and I received a call first thing Monday morning asking when I’d be available. Unfortunately, I missed that call & forgot, but Briana called again Tuesday morning. I appreciated the dedication to call me more than once — I couldn’t get any other plumbers to call me back at all.

Garry came to give me an estimate the same day I talked with Briana and then he was here first thing the next morning to install our new water heater. He also fixed a few things that the previous plumber had done wrong, so I feel good about the longevity of the water heater.

Everyone I dealt with was very professional. It’s always nice when you can find a company you can trust, so I’ve found my plumbing and HVAC company.”
