Who Fixes Water Heaters?
If you are the average homeowner, then you have likely asked “do plumbers fix water heaters?” The answer is yes! When it comes to water heater issues, a licensed plumber can handle the job. Plumbers have extensive knowledge of water heaters and their components, including electrical wiring, heating elements, piping, gas lines, and anode rods.
However, if a plumber determines that the source of the water heater problem is your home’s electrical system, you must call a licensed electrician. Common water heater issues handled by electricians include circuit breakers trips, overheated or blown fuse boxes, and loose wiring.
Water heater repairs may not always be possible. Sometimes the water heater is too old to be repaired, and sometimes the extent of the damage your water heater has suffered is beyond salvage. Other times, a repair that may technically be possible may not be the most cost-effective choice, particularly if your water heater is near or past its expected service life. In these situations, you can count on Complete Comfort to help you choose a replacement water heater.
If you have questions about the current condition of your water heater, you can count on us for honest, trustworthy advice. Our experienced Orange County water heater replacement technicians are plumbers, not salespeople, and we'll make sure you understand your options so that you can make the best choice for your situation.

Over time, your water heater may start to become less efficient with the buildup of sediment on the bottom. In places with hard water, it is especially important to schedule yearly maintenance to avoid too much sediment buildup in the tank. The thicker the layer of sediment, the less efficient the unit will be at heating water and the more at risk it will be of damage or failure.
What Happens During a Water Heater Tune Up Service?
During a tune-up, the technician will drain the tank, clean the heating elements, and inspect the internal parts. They may also check for signs of wear and tear such as rust or gaps in the tank.
What are the Benefits of Water Heater Maintenance?
With regular water heater maintenance, you can make sure your unit runs as efficiently as possible for as long as possible. Even if nothing appears to be wrong with your water heater, yearly maintenance is still recommended for water heaters. If you notice a problem or leak with your water heater, then your unit may require repair or replacement. Our Orange County water heater maintenance technicians can inspect the problem and offer solutions to meet your needs and budget.
