Join your neighbors in Long Island and Five Boroughs who have been looking to Maccarone Plumbing to handle their water heater issues. We serve residential and commercial properties.
What are Signs You Have a Problem?
Do you spot water puddling around the base of your water heater?
Is your water not as hot as it used to be, or running out more quickly than usual?
Is the water from your water heater cloudy or foul-smelling?
These point to an underlying problem in your heater. The source of these problems range from faulty thermostats to sediment accumulating in the bottom of your water heater tank.
Contact your technician to diagnose the problem before larger issues develop. You may only need to replace some components. Repairs are recommended, but if your water heater is over ten years old and is constantly needing repairs, we will present options for a full unit replacement.
What Can You Do to Prevent Problems?
Routine maintenance is a cost-effective way to avoid unexpected problems. You will increase the lifespan of your water heater and increase savings on energy bill.
We provide professional maintenance services to take care of the more technical issues, but there are also simple tasks you can perform on your own:
- Drain water from the bottom of your tank to prevent sediment build up; we recommend doing this three or four times a year.
- Check the pilot flame. Is it blue? If not, you have a soot problem.
Make sure to call your technician when anything unusual occurs. We recommend yearly maintenance inspections to check for tank corrosion as well as to identify potential problems.
