Water Heater RepairsThe water heater sits in its closet, out of sight and out of mind, just one of many devices that help keep your house comfortable all year. You get so used to the simple luxury of turning the tap to “hot” and enjoying pre-heated water for showers, cleaning dishes, and more that you never really think of it not being there. Knowing some key points about water heater repairs ahead of time may save you trouble later. Whether you need just a check up or full service of your water heater, the professionals at Pratt Plumbing can get it done right.

Gas Appliances Need Special Care

In most homes, the water is heated by natural gas or propane. Special care is required during water heater repairs to ensure that gas is not allowed to build up in your home. This can lead to a deadly possibility of carbon monoxide poisoning.

A 50-Gallon Water Tank Full of Hot Water Takes Special Handling

In many cases, work on your water heater can be accomplished without moving the water tank, but if it does require replacement or moving for any reason, it is the time to look into options in Amarillo plumbers to help with the process. The tank will be drained before moving but it will have residual water, which means that it will be very heavy and awkward to handle. As a result, it’s best to stay on the safe side and call a professional.

Newer Systems May Have a Computer Chip Control

Depending on what is wrong with your water heater, you may be able to figure it out and get it going again, or it may call for a professional for water heater repairs, especially if the problem relates to the computer chip that controls many newer models. Call a trained technician, like the service pros at Platt Plumbing at 806-373-7866, who can diagnose the problem and get it fixed.

We have recently completed a remodel of an 80 year old house and we used Pratt Plumbing for all of the plumbing renovation. Pratt was great in all respects: their ideas, their work, their timeliness, their prompt attention to details and follow through all were and continue to be of the highest caliber. Their invoices are reasonable and we would recommend Pratt Plumbing to anyone in need of minor or major plumbing work.
