Las Vegas water heater repair done right!
You may not give your water heater much thought, but it's important to watch for changes in your water heater's performance. Over time, sediment can build up in the tank and reduce efficiency. Your water heater's heating elements and thermostat can also wear out, leaving you with a fluctuating temperature or no hot water at all.
Do your morning showers turn cold within minutes? Is your hot water merely lukewarm? Does your water heater fail to turn on? We take pride in offering affordable water heater repair in Las Vegas. Whether you have a gas, electric, or tankless water heater, we can help.
Our Las Vegas Water Heater Repair Services
We perform all types of hot water heater repair services, from routine tank flushes and heating element replacement to leaking pipes.
If your electric water heater is supplying warm or room temperature water that never gets hot enough -- or the hot water runs out quickly -- it's a sign a heating element is worn out. An electric water heater has an upper and a lower heating element. When the water stays lukewarm, it means the upper element has worn out because this heating element kicks in when you have high demand for hot water. If your hot water runs out too fast, it usually means the lower element has worn out.
Bad Thermostat or Theromocouple
Whether you have an electric or gas water heater, it needs something to cycle the heat on and off. When this part breaks down, your water may become boiling hot or very cold. With a gas water heater, the component is called a thermocouple. Electric water heaters use a thermostat.
A water heater can leak from many areas, including around the heating elements, gas control valve, drain valve, or the pipes that supply the water heater. When a leak is coming from a port or pipe, it can be repaired. If your tank itself is leaking, water heater repair won't be possible. In this case, the water heater must be replaced.
When your hot water comes out with a yellowish or rust color, it's probably a sign that your anode rod has gone bad. The anode rod or sacrificial rod is a steel core with a metal coating. It protects your water heater tank from rusting through electrolysis, which lets the rod corrode instead of the steel in the water heater. Anode rods can last for around 4 years. It's important to have the anode rod replaced regularly. Once it fails, it will put the tank at risk. Sometimes the rod can even break and bounce around the water heater, causing even greater damage.
If your water smells like rotten eggs or sulfur, it's likely a build-up of bacteria in your water heater. Bacteria feed on the hydrogen gas created as a byproduct when the anode rod breaks down. We can solve the problem and restore clean water by flushing your tank and possibly replacing the anode rod.
If your water heater makes odd noises when it kicks on, it's a sign that there's a build-up of mineral scale. Flushing and cleaning your water tank may solve the problem.
Gas Water Heater Repair
Pilot light won't turn on? Water comes out lukewarm? Our gas hot water heater repair service will get your water heater back in working order. Common problems with gas water heaters include worn thermocouples, clogged vents, bad gas valves, and sediment buildup. We offer affordable gas water heater repair in Las Vegas to restore hot water to your home.
Electric Water Heater Repair
Electric water heaters tend to last longer than gas models because they have fewer parts. We perform all types of electric water heater repair in Las Vegas, including replacing heating elements and bad thermostats to leak repair. If your electric hot water heater is failing to provide sufficient hot water, give us a call to get to the bottom of it.
Tankless Water Heater Repair
On-demand water heaters don't require repairs as often as conventional water heaters, but they do need regular service. We perform routine flushes as well as repairs to electric and gas tankless heaters. If your water heater isn't working, the most likely cause is a clogged burner which can burn the heat exchanger.

Not sure if your water heater can be repaired? Curious about extending the life of your water heater? We are here to help. Here are a few frequently asked questions, but we are always just a call away if you need additional assistance.
Is it better to repair my water heater or replace it?
Our local water heater repair service can extend the life of your water heater, giving you perhaps a few more years or longer before you need to invest in a new water heater. We will always recommend repairs when they are cost-effective. Our water heater repair service technicians will recommend replacement if repairs will exceed half of the cost of a new water heater or your current water heater is outdated and very inefficient.
Can you replace a gas water heater with an electric water heater?
While it's usually recommended to stick with a gas water heater if you're concerned about energy costs, it is possible to switch from a gas to an electric water heater in Las Vegas. In fact, this is easier than switching from electric to gas.
How do I know if my water heater can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced?
If you aren't sure if your water heater can be repaired, we can help. Once your water heater reaches a certain age, it's usually best to replace it before it fails for good or starts to leak. When possible, we will always recommend cost-effective repairs that can extend the life of your water heater.
How can I extend the life of my water heater?
As with any other appliance or component of your home, proper maintenance is essential to maximize the lifespan of your water heater. Your water heater should be drained every year to flush out sediment that settles at the bottom, reduce efficiency, and shorten the water heater's life. Keep your water heater set to 120 degrees F as higher temperatures can increase sediment buildup in the tank. We recommend having your water heater serviced every year or two to ensure it's working as efficiently as possible.
