Water heaters are like any other appliance in your home in that they could break and stop working properly. When that happens, you don’t necessarily need to replace the unit entirely, but might be able to get it working again with a simple repair instead. A repair can be significantly more affordable than a replacement, and likewise could help keep your water heater in service for several additional years once the job is complete as well. At Wolfschmidt Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we service all makes and models of water heaters, and we use genuine parts and materials to get yours up and working again. From the easiest and simplest repairs to the most intricate fixes, you can count on us for excellence in both results and in customer care.
Common Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repairs
Even the most reliable water heater will start to fail after a while, and its important to pay attention to the warning signs so you can call in a plumber as soon as possible to fix the issue before it becomes a massive and expensive problem. Some of the most common issues you may run into include:
- Issues with water temperature: The first thing to look for if your home's water is consistently too cold or too hot is to check the thermostat. Adjust the settings and double check to make sure it's getting power. If the water still isn't getting hot enough, there's a chance that your water heater is too small for your home.
- Rust-colored water: This is often the sign that your tanks inner lining is corroding. This needs to be handled by a professional, and may require replacement.
- Your water heater is leaking water: There are a range of causes of leaking water heaters, including loose bolts, a stuck valve, a faulty temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve, and more. Check for loose connections first if you're comfortable with working on the unit yourself, or call in a professional for a full diagnosis.
- Strange noises coming from the tank: This is usually caused by sediment build up, and can be fixed by flushing the water heater. If the problem persists or if the sediment buildup is too significant, you may need to replace the unit.
- Strange smelling water: This can be a sign that there is bacteria in the tank, and is most common in homes that use well water. Flushing the tank can help, but there's a good chance you'll want to replace the anode rod to prevent the issue from coming back.

I had a pleasure meeting technician Ms. Isis who did a wonderful job inside my home in a very detailed and professional manner. Isis was very patient and knowledgeable towards my heating system issues. Isis definitely needs to be one of these great assets towards any company and of course, she deserves a promotion. Thank you!

I recently had a problem with my AC unit and so i called Pheonix. I was somewhat surprised when your company answered. I have been a long time Pheonix customer and knew that Craig was thinking about retiring when I last talked to him and so I was apprehensive about dealing with a new company that i knew nothing about.
After your Tech Lino arrived we talked about my problem and he set my mind at ease and i will continue to use your company. Lino was knowledgeable, polite, and honest. He could have said it is an old unit and you should replace it but instead he just replaced the starter capacitor. He is a great representation for your company!

I told the gentleman about my issue, and he said he would have someone from the office call me to schedule. 30 minutes later I received a call and I was scheduled for that morning at 10:30. This was right in the middle of a heat wave, and I'm sure they were really busy.Jamie McCracken

Water heaters are prone to a number of different issues, ranging from routine and simple to complex and difficult. Every make and model is different, and while many heaters might run on the same principles, each has its own unique design ideas and features that make expertise and experience an important part of servicing them. At Wolfschmidt Plumbing, Heating & Cooling, we service all makes and models, and we can quickly and accurately diagnose your water heating problem in order to get it fixed.
We fix all of your water heating problems, including the following issues:
- Damaged heating elements
- Electrical faults
- Pilot light issues
- Gas connections
- Electrical connection issues
- Exhaust problems
- Water pressure issues
- Water connection issues
The only type of water heating problem we do not recommend repairing is a leak, and for good reason. Leaks in your tank are a sign that part of your tank has grown weak for one reason or another. Sometimes this reason might be corrosion through years of use. Other times pressure and stress from constantly having to drain and refill a tank of water can lead to weakening metal and materials. However, whatever your reason might be, leaks are extremely difficult to repair. Fixing a leak involves tearing into a water heater, damaging its extremely important insulation materials in order to locate the leak. As a result, your water heater will never be as efficient as it was before, and likewise you could only be delaying the inevitable.
