Our plumbing experts are here for you when it comes to water heater repairs in metro Detroit, but we're also here to help our customers avoid uncomfortable situations, like going without hot water because of a problem with the water heater.  That's why we are happy to take care of your water heater maintenance, so you can be sure your water heater will provide you with the comfort you expect.

You can count on us to do the following:

  • Test the water temperature to make sure it's at an ideal level where it's warm enough to take a hot shower comfortably, but not so warm that it could cause any burns.
  • Check your safety relief valve and emergency shutoff valve to make sure that your water heater is safe.
  • As part of your water heater's maintenance plan we'll flush out the system to get rid of any debris that may cause a problem with the water heater's efficiency, and lead to larger problems in the future.
  • We'll inspect your burner assembly and the power supply that's heating the water.

These things all help to make sure that your water heater is working efficiently and help to increase the water heater's lifespan. Many parts on a water heater can be replaced, except for the tank. If the tank rusts, it can't be repaired, and must be replaced.

Water heater replacements

Water heaters typically last seven to ten years. Obviously, this is dependent on multiple factors . Without regular maintenance, a water heater's lifespan can be as short as four or five years.

When your water heater reaches the five-year mark, you should start paying attention to it and considering whether it's time to replace it. Oftentimes, repairs can extend the life of your water heater, and preventative maintenance is definitely an important factor to make your water heater last as long as possible. Father & Son Plumbing and Heating can help you find the most energy efficient water heaters that fit your budget. We are licensed and trained professionals, so you can be confident that our water heater installation or replacement services will be done to code and done right.
