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.

“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.”
