Have you ever turned on your shower or your faucet only to find that the water is only slightly lukewarm? If so, chances are you have a problem with your hot water heater. If you are faced with this scenario, the team here at Steve Mull Plumbing wants you to know how important it is to have your water heater inspected so as to avoid a much more costly repair.
Choosing to put off an inspection may lead to no hot water in your home at all. With that said, finding and choosing the right plumber to repair your heater or install a whole new one can be a bit of a challenge. We would like to share some important tips on how you can choose the perfect plumber for this task.
What To Look For
For starters, it is important to find a plumber that has a specialty in repairs of water heaters. Not all plumbing companies offer these services since they may not possess the training and skillset needed to diagnose the problem and provide an effective repair solution. However, whether you have a standard tank, a heat pump water tank or a tankless water heater, rest assured our team has got you covered.
Next, in your search, be sure to compare fees and rates. Be sure to do a comparison of their day-to-day plumbing services as well as their emergency repairs. Also, be sure to give notice to any rates or fees that may be outside of the typical fees for such repairs as hot water heater maintenance and installations. Often times the rate is not a standard per hour rate, but rather may be specific to the plumbing task at hand. Cheaper plumbers are not necessarily the best plumbers. You should always keep in mind that you get what you pay for. So, if you have to pay a wee bit more for experience and performance that will extend the lifespan of your heater then choose wisely. Experienced plumbers are also able to make new technology recommendations that can help to enhance the plumbing system in your home.
Further to your search, if the opportunity presents itself, try to have a conversation with one of the actual plumbers that would be performing your required work. They should be able to answer questions and discuss concerns you may have. During your discussion be sure to take note of their professionalism and whether or not they are truly interested in solving your problem. A quick conversation is a sure-fire way of putting your mind at ease and a quick and easy way to formulate an honest opinion.
When performing your due diligence, don’t forget to read the many customer reviews. If you are noticing many negative reviews, then steer clear since this is an obvious red flag. You want to be sure the plumber you choose is equipped to handle the task and is committed to providing high quality products and services that you may need.
