Your water heater works overtime to provide your family with hot water. We use hot water every day for washing, showering, and dishes. Without a water heater, we would need to boil water the same way people had to do hundreds of years ago. Let Tampa Bay Plumbing provide you with reliable water heater services and ensure your water heater is always working efficiently.
What are the Benefits of a Water Heater?
Water heaters are one of the most useful inventions in recent memory. They allow us to quickly heat water for cooking, cleaning, showering and laundry. Having hot water this accessible is a luxury that we sometimes take for granted, however, getting a sharp jab of cold water in the middle of a shower will quickly remind us how important these units are.

Common Water Heater Problems
Since your water heater works almost all the time to provide your family with hot water, it makes sense that there could be some repairs required over time. Some of the most common issues we see with water heaters include:
The thermostat is what tells the water heater when to heat. If there is an issue with the thermostat, your unit may fail to heat or cool the water resulting in inconsistent water temperature.
These units rely heavily on electrical and mechanical components that can fail. Many of the issues that can affect the system may be related to mechanical or electrical failings.
Over time, your water heater may be subject to wear and tear. A typical unit will last up to 10 years with regular maintenance and proper use. If your unit has sustained structural damage or is beginning to wear out, it may be time for a replacement.
Why Hire a Professional?
Many home chores are perfectly fine to DIY. A water heater installation is not one of them. Only an expert can be 100 percent sure of the proper installation of these units. A professionally trained technician can dispose of the old unit while ensuring that the new one is working with all the components and is correctly attached to your plumbing.
