A warm shower can feel great on sore muscles after a long day, and hot water is essential for doing a load of towels or washing your dishes. All homeowners understand the importance of having a working water heater. Our compassionate team at Jennings knows how hard you work to keep your home comfortable, and we are determined to provide the fastest repair services in the Springfield area so that you know exactly who to call when something goes wrong.
Our Repair Services
At Jennings, we have years of experience in providing repair services for every type of water heater from gas to electric. Our goal is to fix the problem so that you don’t have to call us again for the same service. Our repair services are unique because we have a local warehouse that is fully stocked which means no waiting for parts to have your system fixed. If we don’t have the part on our trucks, it is a short trip to find what we are looking for. For most water heater repairs, we are in and out in a few hours, leaving you to enjoy hot water again.
Water Heater Repair Signs
There are almost always a few early indications that a repair for your water heater is needed, and you should always be keeping an eye out for them so that you can call us as soon as possible. Early detection is the key to keeping water heater repairs affordable. You should always watch out for the following signs:
- Water temperature that is inconsistent
- Water that is not warm enough
- Noises that you have never heard before
- Mold or mildew on or around the unit
- Signs of a leak or water damage
- A rotten egg smell
- Rust-colored water
- A lack of efficiency
- Foul tasting water
If you experience a complete loss of hot water or if there is leaking or the smell of rotten eggs, call right away for an emergency repair. These problems need to be resolved fast, even if it is a weekend or in the middle of the night. The home damage, danger to residents, and inconvenience are far worse than simply getting help right away. If you are worried about the higher cost of emergency repairs, we offer our Rewards Club which includes a reduced service fee of only $59 for after-hours repairs.
Tankless Water Heater Repairs
We are Springfield’s number one option for tankless water heater repairs. If you have this type of system, you want someone with experience and knowledge about your system to fix it. While tankless systems are extremely efficient and durable, they can occasionally break down and need to be repaired. Mineral buildup is a common cause of system failure, and other problems can occur such as issues with the ignition, electrical malfunctions, blocked vents, and more. If something seems wrong with your tankless system, give us a call and we will come to your home and diagnose the problem.
Preventing Water Heater Breakdowns
It can be extremely frustrating for your water heater to continually break down, forcing you to call repeatedly for repairs. When we arrive for repair services, we like to educate our customers on proper water heater care so that we can help prevent further problems in the future. The single most important step is investing in preventative maintenance. If you have a storage-tank water heater, it is essential to have it flushed each year to remove the sediment that sinks to the bottom of the tank. During preventative maintenance appointments, your technician will also look for any leaks, check your anode rod, and inspect the water heater valves. Anode rods should be replaced every 5 years or so to prevent corrosion of the tank.
