    Common Water Heater Issues

    Having no hot water is certainly the most attention-getting issue that you might be experiencing. And this can be caused by several different issues. All water heaters have a heating element that can wear out. When this happens, you must replace the heating element, but not necessarily the entire water heater. You might also have a faulty thermostat which is the cause of your cold showers. This is a very easy part to replace, and that repair is far less costly than buying a new water heater. And if the water heater uses gas, the issue could be as simple as a clogged gas line. All of these issues have the same result but are not reasons to replace the entire water heater.

    It is also common for a homeowner to notice that there is water puddling near their water heater. Most water heater leaks occur at the drain value, a pipe fitting, or at the supply or discharge pipe connections. These are easy fixes that Tweedy Plumbing technicians will be able to quickly locate and repair for you.

    Another issue that is very troubling to homeowners is when they discover that their hot water is discolored, contains tiny rust particles, or has a bad smell. And while the water is still getting hot, these issues are a sign that there is a problem with the water heater. Discolored water or water with rust and sediment in it is the result of something inside the tank that is breaking down. If the item that is deteriorating is the heating element, your Tweedy Plumbing professional will be able to clean the tank, replace the heating element, and restore your hot water. However, if the actual tank is wearing out, then the only safe solution is to replace the entire water heater.

    Different Types of Water Heaters

    At Tweedy Plumbing our plumbers are licensed and trained to work on all types of water heaters as well as all brands. Traditional water heaters are the ones which have the large holding tank that maintains your hot water. The unit will operate using gas or electricity to maintain hot water. Repairing these units requires a plumber who is knowledgeable and skilled at working with electrical, gas, and plumbing components, which is why Tweedy Plumbing plumbers attend regular training classes.

    The second type of water heater is called a tankless water heater, or an on-demand water heater. These units do not have a large holding tank for the hot water. Instead, these water heaters only heat water when you turn on a faucet or shower. The water is actually heated as it passes through the piping in your home. A tankless water heater can be configured as a gas or electric unit. Servicing and repairing these water heaters requires special skills and training as well.

    There can be many reasons that your water heater is no longer providing you with the hot water that you need. And only after a professional evaluation will it become clear if the unit can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced. It is the integrity of our plumbers that sets Tweedy Plumbing apart from all of the other plumbing service providers in Newport Beach. Our primary goal is customer satisfaction. And we know that customers are going to be happy to save money with a repair, rather than paying for a new water heater that they didn’t really need.

    Our promise to our customers is to always offer as many solutions as possible to every issue including a broken water heater. We will then provide price quotes and explain each option so that our customer can make a well-informed choice. This process, along with our dedication to customer service, good old fashioned respect, and quality workmanship have allowed us to establish our great reputation in Newport Beach. Call (949) 645-2352 today, and a Tweedy Plumbing representative will assist you by answering your questions and scheduling your appointment.

    FAQ – Water Heater Repair In Newport Beach

    Here are a few answers to questions about water heater repair in Newport Beach:

    Is a gas or electric water heater better?

    The better option between a gas or electric water heater primarily depends on your water heater usage and household priorities. Electric water heaters have become popular due to their dependability, efficiency, and environmental benefits. Since electricity is available to most if not all homes, electric water heaters allow for easy installation too.

    While electric water heaters provide numerous advantages, gas water heaters offer benefits that electric water heaters don’t. Gas water heaters are known for the considerable energy savings they provide. Although gas water heaters tend to cost more upfront, they are the more economical option in the long term due to less energy consumption. Additionally, you still have access to hot water during power outages since it doesn’t run on electricity.

    Whether you need installation or water heater repairs in Newport Beach, contact Tweedy Plumbing & Restoration for superior plumbing service.

    Can I handle water heater repairs on my own?

    As with all repairs, DIY methods don’t provide the same guarantee of quality work and results that professionals offer. At times, attempting to perform a water heater repair in Newport Beach may cause a more significant and costly repair than immediately calling a water heater repair expert.

    Extremely professional, helpful, and thorough! Tim from Tweedy Plumbing provided excellent service and solutions for our issues!! Would highly recommend Tweedy Plumbing for any needs!
    Everyone from scheduling to service were great. Honest, to the point, and knowledgeable. They were able to fit me into their busy schedule withing hours...SAME DAY!!! I would recommend them in the Newport Mesa are for sure. FYI- they replaced the pilot assembly kit/thermocouple in my GE water heater. Not an easy task as it requires dis-assembly and taking the heater pan out.
