Water Heater Repair
Repairing your water heater can be very expensive, with HomeAdvisor reporting an average cost of $500. However this may not cover all the associated costs such as labor and parts for repairs which could add up to more than what’s paid initially in purchasing a new unit!
Some water heater repair expenses go towards:
- Cost for parts
- Supply pipes
- Air flow systems
- Compliance issues
- Labor costs
It’s important to call a plumber as soon you notice that your water heater is not working properly. Even though they may be expensive, repairs can cost less in the end if done correctly and on time from day one! To help get an accurate estimate, send us photos of your entire water heater and surrounding area so we know what needs fixing before sending them off with an estimate or quote for repair work needed.
Water Heater Installation
The average lifespan of older water heaters range between 8 to 12 years (newer models are now built to easily last 15-20 years). However, once your old water heater gets over 10 years old, you will most likely begin to experience bigger and bigger issues. While routine part replacements and maintenance will extend your water heater tank’s lifespan, there will be a time where it will make the most sense to have a new water heater installed.
When the time comes to replace your water heater, we strongly advise having a licensed plumber take care of it for you. We get it, your are trying to save money, but in the long run, trying to install a new water heater yourself can void your warranty, is potentially hazardous (especially when dealing with gas), and can lead to unnecessary repairs down the road.
Your water heater is an investment that you want to be handled properly from the get go to take care of you for years to come. If you need assistance along the way, from choosing a brand to deciding on what power source to purchase, our plumbing technicians here in Tri-Cities can help. We’ll assess your water heater needs, the location of your residential or commercial property, and your budget to determine the best unit for you.

Water Heater Replacement
Ready to replace your water heater? Our Kingsport Water Heater Pros can help you decide your best options based on the following factors:
Tank Size. You can maximize efficiency and get the most out of your hot water with a properly sized unit. If you don’t have one that fits, then it won’t do its job at providing just what’s needed for maximum use in any home or business space!
Energy Usage.Choose a water heater that’s both budget-friendly and always on top when it comes to performance. If you prioritize energy efficiency, go for tankless instead of traditional storage tank gas or electric units!
Power Source. What’s your business or home’s available energy options? Do you have running gas lines? If you have both, our technicians can walk you through your best options. While most prefer gas, they would rather not pay for additional gas line fixtures to be installed.
Water Flow Rate. How much water should your heater produce? It is important to make sure that the new model you buy can meet the needs of all those using it. You might also want a unit with good regeneration capabilities so its rate of heating up water can keep up with your hot water demands.
After determining the type of water heater you want to replace your old unit with, our water heater installation team here in Kingsport can take it from there. We offer transparent pricing and will set you up with a proper maintenance plan to avoid costly repairs.
Commercial Water Heater Services
As business owners ourselves, we know how valuable your commercial property is to you, your employees, and your customers. If you’re looking for a plumbing service that meets all of your business demands, we have you covered.
As a local water heater company here in Kingsport, we have helped countless businesses with custom water heating solutions. From basic repairs and maintenance, to retrofitting plumbing fixtures in those tricky spaces, to multi-unit tankless water heater installations.
You will first speak with a plumbing expert to review how much hot water your business will actually need. A restaurant or gym will have completely different hot water requirements than an apartment complex or simple small office space. With that said, many companies will simply install a few new 50 gallon electric water heaters for redundancy purposes. This ensures that if one unit fails, the other will still have enough hot water on hand.
After one of our plumbing professionals establishes your hot water needs, whether it be repair or replacement, the next step is providing you with a proposal that clearly outlines each component of work and how much each one costs. We base all of our pricing off of an hourly rate so you know exactly where your money is going. From start to finish, we make sure everything is clear and concise with no hidden fees.
Have peace of mind knowing that we prioritize completing projects on time and within your businesses’ budget
Frequently Asked Questions
Common Water Heater Service Questions We Hear
How much does it cost to repair a water heater?
The average cost to repair a water heater is $500. This can vary depending on the type of water heater you have. In most cases, a water heater repair job takes less than an hour. In some rare instances the repairs can take up to several hours. To get an idea of what your cost to fix will be you should contact one of our service professionals by phone at (423) 497-0800 or fill out our online form .
A basic water heater repair requires parts and labor. Even the simplest jobs require the use of expensive equipment such as pressure gauges, vacuum pumps and other special tools that plumbers carry. If one part fails, it is likely that another part will soon fail unless it is repaired soon afterwards.
For example if your pilot light goes out then you must relight it before resetting the thermostat or you risk overheating the water tank. If you drain your hot water tank every six months to remove sediment buildup, then you can actually avoid major part replacements. This is why we advise to work with us on an affordable routine water heater maintenance plan. It will save you big in the long run!
What are the most common issues water heaters face?
The most common issues with water heaters are corrosion, leaks, and sediment. Other less common issues are damaged heating elements, corroded pipes, and broken thermostats.
Most people find out their water heater is leaking when they see an “overflow” drain on the floor that wasn’t there before or when water starts flooding out of their basement near their hot water tank. This is caused by a leak in the cold water inlet pipe at the bottom of your water heater.
Less common are leaks at the drain valve, which will drip out of the end of the pipe that usually hangs on the wall or sits on the floor. This drip will smell like rotten eggs since your gas burner is rusting away. The tank may also start to look rusty because it leaks so much water. It’s best to replace this washer before large quantities of red-brown iron oxide begin coming out with every drip – otherwise, you’ll have a lot more work to do besides just replacing washers on your hot water tank!
What causes a water heater to break?
A water heater is a device that heats water for different purposes. It can be used to provide hot water for showering, washing clothes, making food in the kitchen, or to produce drinking water.
Aside from general wear and tear due to age, some of the main causes of a broken water heater are an age-old leak in the heating system, corrosion buildup on the heating element, inefficient gas flames at the top of the tank, or an improper installation with hard-water residue.
Since water that is heated to over 120 degrees Fahrenheit will start to break down and produce minerals that can damage the components of a water heater, it is very important to practice proper maintenance procedures. One such maintenance procedure is draining around 10 percent contents from the tank to clear residue buildup.
It is also necessary for homeowners who have hard-water stains on their fixtures or appliances due to mineral deposits in their water supply to consider installing a water softener system before treating hot and cold water with chemicals. This would help them avoid extra costs and time-consuming repairs and maintain high quality, clean and safe drinking and showering water.
What if I install a new water heater myself?
If you are confident in your DIY skills, you may think that the cost of hiring a professional to install a water heater may outweigh the cost of purchasing materials and equipment to do it yourself. We strongly advise against this as it could cost you big time in the long run!
If your water heater isn’t installed properly, or doesn’t meet local plumbing codes, it will not be covered by the manufacturer’s warranty. If there is ever anything wrong with your water heater (and there will be), you could end up having to pay someone to come out to fix the problem.
Another reason you should hire a professional is because gas leaks are very common during installations. This can lead to ignition and explosion of the entire water heater unit! When hiring a professional, they will ensure that this never becomes an issue for you. They know what they are doing and any mistakes would cost them their job!
In short, we strongly advise against installing your own hot water heater as improper installation won’t be covered by warranty, it can be hazardous (especially with gas water heaters), and it could cost you unnecessary major repairs or replacements.
