Why Should I Call Heritage for Water Heater Repair and Maintenance?

Regardless of how old they are, water heaters are a critical part of your home comfort systems – meaning they will benefit from regular maintenance and repair. The top reasons to have Heritage inspect your water heater include:

Saving money: Investing in regular maintenance now can prolong the life of your water heater, resulting in major cost savings over time. Taking care of your unit today can prevent major repairs, or needing a full water heater replacement before it reaches the full life expectancy.

Reduce risk: Ordinary contaminants in your water can collect in your water heater, making it work harder over time. Sediment, corrosion, or debris can leak into your hot water, making contact with your skin and dishes over time – potentially putting your family in harm’s way.

Improve efficiency: Improperly maintained water heater systems work harder to provide hot water, resulting in more breakdowns and increased energy bills. Getting regular service can help you save money by keeping your system working at its best throughout the year.

Avoid bigger repairs or replacement: Without regular service, the components of your water heater will break down and wear out, forcing you to make costly repairs or get a whole new system. Regular preventative maintenance can find issues before they become major problems in the future.

When you call Heritage for water heater service, our technicians will come to your home on your schedule and arrive on time. We’ll inspect your unit for sediment build-up, corrosion issues, leaks, and other potential problems.


Should our techs find problems beyond regular maintenance, they will be transparent about the issues you could be facing. You will also get a plan for repairs, or recommendations on new systems if a full replacement is needed. We’ll also take the time to answer all your questions, provide clear pricing that is easy to understand, and make sure you have all the information you need to determine the best way forward for your family.

The Most Common Issues for Water Heater Service

Regular water heater maintenance is key to prevent bigger breakdowns in the future. If you’re noticing any of these common issues, it might be time to make the call to Heritage:

  • Pooling water under the heater unit or water running from the sides. This could mean there’s a leak in the heater and could cause indoor flooding if not addressed quickly.
  • Hot water that isn’t as hot as it once was. Unless the temperature setting on your unit changed, cooler water could mean there’s something wrong with the heating element or other internal systems.
  • Hot water that runs out sooner than normal. While running out of hot water happens from time to time, running out faster indicates something might be wrong with your unit. One service call can help you discover what’s going wrong and make a plan to fix it.
  • Abnormal sounds from your water heater. If you hear sounds coming from your unit or hear noises when it runs, it could be the result of sediment buildup. Our technicians can find it and work to remove it.

If your water heater is leaking, call a technician immediately. A leaking water heater is an emergency situation and could end up causing water damage to your home’s floors, walls, and possessions.


Heritage is your trusted team to diagnose, repair, or replace your water heater all year long.
