Water Heater Repair & Replacement Services in the Greater Charlotte Area

Your water heater works silently around the clock to give you a constant supply of warm water. Suddenly, one day, you have an “uh-oh” moment complete with a cold shower or a flood in the utility closet. When a problem develops, you need an immediate solution. At Horne Heating and Air Conditioning Inc., we’re more than an HVAC company. Our service techs specialize in water heater repairs and replacements, too.

Affordable Water Heater Repairs

Given enough time, almost any part of your water heater can fail. The average water heater lasts about 12 to 15 years since we have moderately soft water in the Charlotte area. If the unit fails, homeowners can even face floods of water from a broken tank. In some cases, experts recommend premature replacements to prevent possible water damage. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, we can measure its performance. We’ll also check for the following problems and perform repairs if possible:

  • Corroded fittings
  • Sediment and limescale
  • Defective thermocouples
  • Faulty temperature- and pressure-relief valves
  • Burned-out heating elements
  • Faulty drain valves
  • Broken dip tubes

The combination of electricity, water, and gas can create hazardous conditions inside your home or business. If you believe that your water heater isn’t working properly, have our licensed technicians inspect the system. Should the unit need a repair, we can help you verify whether your water heater is still under warranty. If it is malfunctioning, you might notice the following warning signs:

  • Low water temperatures
  • Decreased water capacity
  • Diminished water pressure
  • Tripped circuit breakers
  • Rusty or foggy water
  • Water leaks

Water Heater Replacement

Sometimes, it’s smarter to invest in a water heater replacement rather than a repair. If your water heater has already exceeded its 15-year life expectancy or has developed a major problem, a replacement is the clear choice. Our service techs will determine the cause of the problem and recommend the best solution for your needs.

At Horne Heating and Air Conditioning Inc., we only install the most energy-efficient, durable products. Defective water can heaters consume a lot of gas and electricity, so you’ll save quite a bit of cash by upgrading to an Energy Star-qualified model. For even more savings, consider a heat pump water heater that uses energy from the air to warm the water. These products are 50 percent more efficient than conventional storage tanks. We also install innovative tankless water heaters that offer energy savings, greater comfort and unlimited hot water.
