Water Heater Replacement Services

When you need water heater repairs, our team of plumbing professionals at Total Home Services of Utah perform repairs quickly and efficiently so that your home is protected. 


How Long Does a Water Heater Last?

On average, a water heater will last about eight to ten years. This doesn’t mean, however, that you can forget about this plumbing fixture for that amount of time. Regular preventative water heater maintenance is an important part of your scheduled home upkeep. You can schedule regular water heater maintenance with the team at Total Home Services of Utah.

Signs of a Malfunctioning Water Heater

Maintaining a regular water heater service schedule will help you recognize what your water heater looks and sounds like when it is working properly and when it is malfunctioning. Your water heater may need to be replaced if you notice the following symptoms:

  • Low water pressure
  • Shortage of hot water
  • Rusting on the outside or inside
  • Leaking

These water heater malfunctions may not be definite indicators that your water heater needs replacing. However, if you notice any of these symptoms, be sure to call the plumbing professionals at Total Home Services of Utah to schedule water heater services.

How Does a Water Heater Work?

There are different types of water heaters, including gas, electric, and tankless. Gas and electric water heaters function similarly, as they both utilize tanks. These types of water heater use these components:

  • Tank
  • Dip tube
  • Heating mechanism
  • Thermostat
  • Heat-out pipe
  • Anode rod
  • Valves
      1. Shut-off valve
      2. Drain valve
      3. Pressure relief valve

When you turn on your hot tap water, cold water travels through the dip tube and enters the tank. The heating mechanism (either a gas burner or an eclectic heating element) heats the water to the temperature set by the thermostat. The hot water rises to the top of the tank and exits through the heat-out pipe and travels to your tap.
