Allentown’s Water Heater Experts
Water heater problems are tough to ignore, especially when your day begins with an icy shower. Some water heater problems are more than just a nuisance, though. True water heater emergencies should be reported immediately and repaired without delay since they can lead to gas leaks, scalding, tank explosions, harmful bacteria buildup, mold growth or property damage.
Emergency Water Heater Services
Gas and electric water heaters are low-maintenance appliances that perform reliably for years, but they can still break down from age, electrical problems, or general neglect. When your water heater fails due to a corroded tank, loose valve, bad heating element, electrical problem or major leak, it’s time to call in the Allentown plumbing experts.
Specializing in water heater leak repairs, water heater replacement, and water heater maintenance, the Elek SuperSTARS arrive at your home equipped to deal with any plumbing emergency. Our technicians are trained to service storage water heaters, tankless water heaters, hybrid water heaters and gas or electric models. Emergency expertise includes:
- Broken valve or water pressure build-up. Some water heater leaks begin when water builds up from a broken thermostat or pressure relief valve. Significant pressure can cause a tank explosion, which is a serious scalding and flooding hazard.
- Bad gasket. A damaged heating element gasket may lead to a water heater leak. If you suspect this problem, turn off the power and water supply and call an Elek expert immediately: 610.432.7001.
- Contaminated water. Corroded pipes or tank liners could pollute your home’s hot water supply with bacteria or rust.
- Home flooding. Your leaking or broken water heater could damage flooring, foundations, drywall and interior furnishings. Undiagnosed water leaks may also result in mold and mildew growth.
- Sediment buildup. Over time, minerals, dirt and debris builds up in your water heater’s tank, potentially clogging the drain valve or limiting the efficiency of gas or electric appliances.
