Water Heater Service From the Plumbing Experts serving Vancouver and Camas WA, and Portland Oregon

Need a new water heater? Water heaters can fail with little warning. If your unit is getting on in years, it’s a good idea to think about a replacement before it becomes urgent. When a water heater breaks, you’ll face at least a day or two with no hot water. Even worse, a busted unit may leak, damaging your home or creating a safety hazard.


High-Efficiency Water Heaters Save Energy and Money

In recent years, energy standards for water heaters have become more stringent. That’s good news for consumers who want to save money on utility bills.


Homeowners who buy a high-efficiency water heater may be eligible for a tax rebate.

Newer water heaters are much more efficient than older ones. Even if your current appliance is working well, you can potentially save energy by replacing it with a high-efficiency unit. Traditional tank water heaters have a lifespan of about 8 to 12 years. Tankless water heaters can last as long as 20 years.


Install the right water heater in your home

Choose a water heater based on your hot water usage, preference of power source, and budget. Simpson Plumbing can help you find the best unit for your needs. We install tank (both conventional and hybrid models) and tankless water heaters.


Here are the main types of heaters:

  • Conventional Water Heaters: Newer-model tank water heaters have better insulation than older ones. They retain heat longer and use less energy. These familiar appliances come in various sizes.
  • Hybrid Water Heaters: These tank water heaters use heat-pump technology. They’re more energy efficient than conventional models.
  • Tankless Water Heaters: Energy-efficient and compact, tankless water heaters produce hot water on demand. Some models come with a small auxiliary tank to ensure the fast delivery of hot water.

Signs Your Water Heater Is Failing

  • Discolored water: Brown hot water indicates the tank may be rusting. If you suspect a problem with rust, call Simpson Plumbing before the heater develops a leak. We’ll check the tank and suggest a remedy.
  • Rumbling noises: Sediment in a water heater tank causes the unit to rumble and may eventually damage the heating element or tank lining. A buildup of sediment is caused when naturally occurring minerals in the water solidify and settle.
  • Puddle near the heater: Check around the heater to determine if the unit is leaking or if the water is coming from elsewhere. A cracked tank generally isn’t worth repairing. Call a plumber to recommend a new water heater or to repair the leak if it’s coming from another source.

The above signs could indicate an appliance that has run its course. For other types of problems, use our troubleshooting guide to diagnose water heater problems. Some of the items in our guide are best left to a plumber, electrician or gas company.
