Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

In Asheville, water heater repair will prolong the life of your current heater and save you money on a replacement. Sometimes, we will suggest water heater replacement rather than repair, especially if your current model is over 10 years old. No matter what, we will carefully examine the water heater and diagnose your problem before offering a full estimate.

Look for the following signs that it may be time to repair or replace your water heater.

Rust on the Tank or Inside the Water

When corrosion attaches to a steel surface, it progressively spreads and, in some places, eats through the steel. Rust acts as an early indicator of impending leaks on steel water pipes and storage tanks.

The problem is that it can frequently be difficult to distinguish between rust originating from the water heaters themselves and the pipes leading to your faucet. Keep an eye out for rust in your hot water specifically, as this may be a sign of a related issue with your water heater. Rust, in any event, is an urgent issue that must be resolved for the sanitation of your home.

Strange Noises

Noise from the tank is another warning sign of a failing water heater. As the heater gets older, the rumbling sounds from the water heating tank will get louder and louder. However, sometimes loud noises can be the result of built-up sediment, which simply needs to be drained from the tank.

Leaking Water

When water leaks from your tank, this is a sign that there may be a crack, hole, or loose connection. This is potentially dangerous, and you should immediately call NCPD Service for water heater repairs in Asheville if you notice liquid pooling around your heater.

Your Water Heater Has Been Functional for Many Years

An older water heater may require more frequent maintenance and repairs. Typically, once it gets to this point, we will suggest a replacement if it is more cost-effective.

Everything You Should Know About Water Heater Replacement

Consult the experts when you’d like to replace a water heater, rather than going it alone. Even when empty, traditional water heaters can weigh more than 150 pounds. Replacement of a water heater requires more than one person. Additionally, due to a buildup of pressure, hot water, and other factors, improperly built water heaters can result in severe injury.

Water Heater Replacement Procedure at NCPD Service

We go through several stages when performing a water heater replacement in Asheville, NC. First, we diagnose the problem you have with your current water heater by carefully inspecting it. We will discuss your options with you and, if applicable, walk you through the options for a new water heater. Once we have the whole picture and understand your budget, we will provide an estimate.

Then, we will order any necessary parts or acquire your new water heater. As soon as we have delivered the new water heater to your house, we will detach the broken one and install the new model, making sure to double-check the installation of each component.

Finally, we will remove and dispose of your old water heating system when we replace it with the new one you chose, so you don’t have to worry about the old model.

Reasons to Switch to a Tankless Water Heater

Ditching your traditional water heater and switching to a tankless water heater is an investment. But it pays off over time, both in terms of cost savings and general satisfaction. Here are some of the major benefits of tankless water heater installation in Asheville:

Conserves Energy

Tankless water heaters offer an overall heating efficiency that is strikingly similar to that provided by a conventional gas water heater. The fact that these appliances deliver hot water when you need it without wasting electricity is their true advantage. A conventional gas tank unit will always experience some loss because it is continuously running to maintain the hot water temperature, even when it is not actively being used.

Lowers Overall Cost

Tankless water heaters typically cost more than traditional ones, but if installed properly, they will undoubtedly pay you in the long run as electricity prices rise with each passing year.

Saves More Interior Space

Tankless water heaters types don’t require any additional room in your home because they are wall-mounted. Instead of scoping out enough space for a large tank in your basement, a closet, or the garage, you will simply find an out-of-the-way spot on the wall. We particularly recommend tankless water heater installation in Asheville for small spaces.


With an electric unit’s typical lifespan of up to 20 years, your investment should last you for a long time. Some tankless water heaters last significantly longer than their traditional storage counterparts.

Easy Installation

Since there is no heavy tank, tankless water heater installation is easy and fast. The plumbers at NCPD service can complete this service quickly and efficiently, giving you access to hot water once again.
