Repair & Maintenance

Old water heaters can experience wear and tear over time, and certain parts can cause problems. For example, if it is a water heater with a tank, the tank can rust over time and start leaking, or the heating element may malfunction, leading to either too hot or too cold water. Whether you have a gas, electric, or tankless water heater, our regular maintenance and repair services ensure your unit lasts longer and save you from needing to replace it earlier than anticipated. Here are some maintenance services that help ensure a longer lifespan for your water heater:

  • Tank Drainage or Flushing: Sediment build-up is normal in tanks over time, which can cause your unit to work harder than it has to. We drain or flush your tank to ensure it's clean from this build-up and running optimally.
  • Water Heater Insulation: An insulated tank retains the heat for much longer, ensuring your unit doesn’t work as hard. Insulation helps reduce energy bills. We regularly perform water heater insulation for our residential and commercial clients.
  • Leak Repair: Suppose you see any water buildup under your unit or surrounding walls. In that case, it is a good idea to call a local water heater repair specialist in the greater Seattle or Eastside area to inspect the leak and repair it as soon as possible.

Our expert team can identify and repair residential and commercial water heaters to ensure safe temperatures. Water hotter than 125 Fahrenheit can cause severe burns so it is always a good idea to engage a water heater maintenance service like Ben’s Plumbing to ensure your energy bills and safety are in check. Our expert, trained, and insured water heater repair plumbers and specialists can repair and replace worn-out parts to ensure your hot water is running at optimal temperatures and you are not falling victim to raised energy bills due to a faulty water heater component.

Replacement

For perspective, your water heater usage is a significant part of your energy bill, 25% of every energy dollar. This is why replacing an old unit that does not function efficiently and quickly is essential.

Most water heaters last 10-15 years. After this period, repairing the water heater becomes too costly due to regular issues, and it is best to opt for a water heater replacement to save money on expensive repairs and heightened energy bills.

Since 1995, we have provided water heater replacement solutions to residential and commercial properties in greater Seattle and Eastside communities. Our team has experience working with all brands and models of water heaters, whether you choose a gas, electric, or tankless water heater.

Installation

Water heater installation requires skilled expertise to ensure the plumbing for the water heater and other components are correctly installed. Proper installation is necessary to avoid significant problems and provide an efficient running water heater. At Ben’s Plumbing, we ensure that your water heater installation is handled by plumbing experts who are trained and certified. We have over 25 years of experience installing, repairing, and replacing tankless water heaters with proper plumbing and electrical work.

Our team ensures a clean and proper installation that saves you from spending thousands of dollars on repairs down the road.

Tankless Water Heater
Tankless Water Heater

A tankless water heater is an excellent option if you are looking for an energy-efficient and space-saving water heating solution. Tankless water heater installation is different from installing traditional heaters.

There are several factors to consider depending on whether you choose a gas or an electric option. Our experienced plumbers and technicians have over two decades of experience installing, repairing, and replacing tankless water heaters with proper plumbing and electrical work.

Gas Water Heater
Gas Water Heater

Gas water heaters are great for homes and commercial buildings with high water demands because they heat water faster than their electrical counterparts. Ben’s Plumbing offers comprehensive gas water heater services, including installation, repair, and replacement services.

Gas water heaters require extensive venting to expel combustion gasses, which needs expert attention during repair and installation. Our team of gas water heater plumbers is experienced in the installation and plumbing issues related to gas water heaters.

Electric Water Heater
Electric Water Heater

Electric water heaters are popular where natural gas reserves are limited, and they retain heat better than gas models due to no venting. Critical attention to electrical and plumbing components is required for electric water heater installation, repair, and replacement. Since 1995, we have installed, repaired, and replaced electric water heaters for our residential and commercial clients with accuracy and expertise.

Frequently Asked Questions
How to service a water heater?

Property owners should consider several important factors to ensure their water heaters operate efficiently, safely, and reliably. First, follow the manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines for maintenance tasks, service internals, and safety precautions. Property owners should pay attention to the overall performance of the water heater, including heating efficiency, water temperature consistency, and any unusual noises or odors.

Often, the best way to service a water heater is to hire professional maintenance by a licensed plumber or HVAC technician—the specialists at Ben’s Plumbing can inspect the water heater, perform necessary adjustments, clean components, and identify potential issues before they escalate to major or costly problems for the property owner.

Ben’s Plumbing will take the necessary steps to ensure your water heater unit’s efficiency, safety, and longevity for years to come.

How to repair a water heater?

Water heater repairs require the skills of an expert. The type of repair needed depends on the specific issue and style of the property’s water heater (gas or electric). Professionals will follow the proper safety precautions and manufacturer guidelines throughout the repair process to prevent accidents, injuries, or damages to the water heater while investigating what the issue might be. Problems often include no hot water, inadequate water, leaks, strange noises, or pilot light issues (gas water heaters).

If you’re a property owner unsure about performing repairs, or if the issue persists after attempted repairs, it’s best to seek professional help. Ben’s Plumbing provides licensed plumbers or HVAC technicians who will identify the problem’s nature, inspect various components, and repair or replace faulty parts.

How much is water heater repair?

The cost of repairing a water heater depends on several factors, such as the extent of the damage, the type of water heater, the severity and complexity of the problem, the location and accessibility of the unit, the age and condition of the water heater, the cost of the replacement parts, and labor costs for repair services.

If you’re a property owner, it’s best to consult licensed plumbers or HVAC technicians who can identify the specific issues with your water heater and provide detailed cost estimates for repair or replacement.

At Ben’s Plumbing, our experts can help you compare the cost of repairs against the water heater’s age, condition, and expected lifespan. This way, you can make an informed decision about whether to repair or replace the unit.

How often should I service my water heater?

Property owners can help ensure their water heater operates efficiently, safely, and reliably for years, following the manufacturer’s recommendations and guidelines for maintenance tasks, internal service, and safety precautions. When taken care of, conventional tank heaters can last 10 to 15 years, and tankless (on-demand) water heaters can last 15 to 20 years.

How home and business owners care for their water tank can influence the unit’s longevity—conducting periodic visual inspections of their water heaters and checking for signs of leaks, corrosion, damage, water puddles, rust spots, or unusual noise. Any of the above could indicate a problem with your water tank.

If you see anything that doesn’t look right, seek the assistance of a professional licensed plumber or HVAC technician immediately, as they can perform a comprehensive inspection and cleaning of your unit to diagnose potential issues with a water heater before they escalate into significant problems.

Scheduling regular water heater maintenance services with Ben’s Plumbing will ensure your unit runs efficiently and there is no energy wastage. Routine maintenance and addressing potential urgent issues will prolong the lifespan, keeping your water heater in optimal condition and minimizing the risk of unexpected breakdowns.

Ben's Plumbing is AWESOME! They are very responsive, very flexible, very communicative and great to work with! The team had great knowledge and provided suggestions over the phone to attempt to unclog a pipe. They were able to squeeze me into their schedule and it was great because they helped resolve an issue before it became a larger issue. Brian came out and helped provided some preventative support as well. Great, honest people and I recommend them 1000%!

Ben is always the guy I want on the job, and for the past couple years he's been quick, responsive, and a professional at the work I've needed him to get done for me. He's the local guy that always has your best interest in mind - for example this last testing work he did, he noticed that whoever performed my last sprinkler testing forgot to turn the system back on! He truly caught & made a life-saving fix for us, which shows his professional knowledge and attention to what's going on around him. Thanks again for the great work and conversation, Ben, see you next year I hope!

Our water heater decided to start leaking at 3pm on a Friday and the team at Ben's Plumbing got back to me quickly, got me a bid that wasnt outrageous, and scheduled me for their first slot on Monday morning. The installers arrived on time, were quick, thoughtful, and did great work. I'd totally recommend Ben's Plumbing to anyone.

Nic from Ben’s Plumbing was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING fixing the leak from our toilet yesterday with skill and finesse! Upon arrival, he immediately expertly assessed the problem(s) and proposed an excellent approach, with options, to resolve the issues. I had complete confidence in his capability to handle the expected and unexpected with this repair. I highly, highly recommend Nic (and Ben’s Plumbing) for any work, and we will be coming back again for additional projects and needed repairs at our house. Nic is an excellent communicator and explained everything clearly to a plumbing novice, answered all of my questions, was extraordinarily neat in opening up the drywall and then tidying up at the end of his work. Because of the blessing to me of Nic, I can now sleep peacefully at night knowing that a trustworthy repair has been completed. Thank you, Nic, and Ben’s Plumbing!

"Really nice people, from the office to the field. Our engineer was super helpful and got the repair done quickly, including a trip to the hardware store to get the right part for our quirky old house. I’m bummed that we used a “name brand” service on our recent sewer project - wish I had know about"

"I hired Ben's to take care of the plumbing for two bathroom fluffs in our home - the first visit involved removing the old faucets and the second visit was to install new faucets and a (tricky) Kohler Reach toilet. I can't remember the first plumber's name, but Nick did the installs and they were both great to work with"
