Throughout Denver and the Phoenix Metro area, our plumbers are available 24/7 including holidays to provide reliable water heater repairs and installation.
What is The Expected Life Span of a Hot Water Heater?
A conventional storage tank hot water heater has a life span of about 10 to 15 years. If you are experiencing problems with an older hot water heater, it may be time to consider installing a new one. The good news is that newer models are more energy efficient, so the savings on your utility bills typically offset replacement costs.
When Should You Contact Our CHS Plumbers for Hot Water Heater Repair?
You should leave your home and immediately call the qualified CHS water heater repair plumbers in Phoenix or Denver if:
