If you're in St. Charles or St. Louis and are facing water heater troubles, it's important to consider whether you need a tank repair or replacement.

If it's within that range, AAA experienced plumbers can likely fix it promptly. However, if the unit is near or past its expected lifespan, we'll perform diagnostics to determine if we can salvage it or if it's time for a new water heater.

More Signs You Need Hot Water Heater Repair in St. Louis and St. Charles

A monthly water heater maintenance check is helpful for you to inspect your heater for potential issues.

  • Unusual noises originating from the water heater: Gurgling, gurgling, or standing out noises are all common when a water heater is about to fall short.
  • Insufficient warm water: An effectively running 40- or 50-gallon storage tank must be able to provide adequate warm water for two or three back-to-back showers. If your own is not able to maintain, it might need upkeep to restore optimal output.
  • Dirty warm water: A water heater with corrosion on the inside might create warm water to run brownish. Draining pipes and flushing the tank might fix this trouble.
  • Dripping safety valve or rustic container: Is your water heater leaking? Call AAA to deal with these troubles before the storage tank falls short and floods your basement!

Water Heater Maintenance FAQ

Is it worth it to fix a water heater?

Deciding whether to repair or replace a water heater depends on a variety of factors. The age of the heater, its current condition, the extent of the damage, and the cost of repairs versus replacement all come into play. Often, if the heater is less than 10 years old and the issue is minor - such as a faulty thermostat or heating element - repair may be the most cost-effective solution. However, for water heaters that are older, or have significant issues such as leaking tanks, replacement is usually a better long-term investment. Considering energy efficiency and potential savings on utility bills with newer models might also influence your decision. Always consult with a professional to make an informed choice.

What type of maintenance does my hot water heater need?

Manufacturers of water heaters recommend annual maintenance from a professional plumber — from periodic checks on the anode rod, to ensuring that all connections are secure.

My hot water heater doesn't provide as much hot water as it used to, why?

Over time, hot water heaters build up sediment. It's this sediment and lime that will become a barrier between the burner and the water itself, making it harder for the water to heat.  The more sediment, the more fuel it requires to heat the water and the less hot water it can provide in an efficient manner.

What is the average life of a water heater?

Home hot water heater life expectancy is 9-12 years, with type of unit and water quality being factors.

How long does it take to heat up a 50 gallon hot water heater tank and how long does that last?

It generally takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours to heat up a 50 gallon tank.  The average shower uses 2 gallons of water a minute and that equals approximately 17 minutes of hot shower for a 50 gallon tank before it runs out of hot water.

Are tankless water heaters, also known as “on demand” water heaters, a good alternative?

Tankless water heaters cost a more than conventional heaters but may save you in energy costs.  The size of the unit needed will affect the price, as some units only adequately supply one or two fixtures operating simultaneously so some homes might require a large unit or more than one tankless water heater.  AAA will help you determine if a tankless water heater is right for you home.
