Water Heater Repair and Replacement Services near St Petersburg

Most homeowners don't know. You see, water heaters are complicated and usually require a licensed plumber to do installation and maintenance.

The best thing to do if you suspect your water heater is not performing up to par is to call your local plumbers at Flow Pros Plumbing for electric or gas water heater services in the St. Petersburg area. We can also repair or install new tankless water heaters!

Several working parts need replacement here and there. Then again, newer and more efficient tankless models could be a more efficient solution. If your unit needs many repairs, it may be best to install a new water heater altogether.

Water Heater FAQs

What size water heater do I need?

The size of the water heater you need depends on your household size and water usage. For a typical family of 1-2 people, a 30-40 gallon tank is usually sufficient. For households with 2-4 people, a 40-50 gallon tank is recommended. Larger families of 4-6 people may need a 50-60 gallon tank. Consider your peak usage times; if multiple showers, laundry, and dishwashing occur simultaneously, you might need a larger tank. Tankless water heaters are also an option, providing continuous hot water and potentially requiring less space. Consulting with a professional can help determine the best size for your needs.

Should I choose a tank or tankless water heater?

When choosing between a tank or tankless water heater, there are several things to consider. Tank water heaters have a lower upfront cost but higher operating expenses due to standby heat losses. Tankless heaters are more energy-efficient but have a higher initial investment. If you have a large household with high hot water demands, a tank heater may be more suitable. However, if you have a smaller household and value energy savings, a tankless unit could be the better option. Tankless heaters also have a longer lifespan, typically lasting around 20 years compared to 10-15 years for tank heaters. Ultimately, your household size, hot water needs, budget, and energy efficiency goals should guide your decision.

Do I need a permit for a water heater replacement in Florida?

Yes, in Florida, you typically need a permit to replace a water heater. This ensures the installation complies with local building codes and safety regulations. The permit can usually be obtained through your local building department. Hiring a licensed professional to handle the replacement is recommended, as they can secure the permit and ensure the installation is performed correctly, adhering to all necessary codes and standards.

Common Water Heater Issues

Several water heater repair issues come to mind when talking it over with an experienced plumber. Here is a short list of the things we see every day we work on water heaters.

  • Hard water sediment builds up at the bottom of the tank and on the elements causing inefficient water heating.
  • Old temperature mechanisms can give false readings due to age.
  • The lining of the tank can rust and corrode.
  • The element can become corroded and quit working.

Benefits of Water Heater Replacement

The water heater in your home uses up to 15% of your home's energy, so being an energy-efficient appliance is a great way to save. New technology comes along all the time, improving our homes' efficiency, and it is the same way with your water heater. New heaters are more efficient, saving your home energy and money.

So, if your system is older than ten years and needs replacing, call on the top-rated plumbers at Flow Pros Plumbing for a full replacement.

Should I Repair or Install a New Water Heater?

If you are unsure whether you need a repair or a total replacement, these are the tell-tale signs that it is time to get a new water heater.

  • Are you always having the water heater fixed?
  • Are there leaks?
  • Does it never get hot enough, although you have tried everything?
  • Is there never enough hot water? You may want a newer model.
  • Do you want to save money on water? A new water heater will be more efficient.

Don't wait until your water heater fails—take proactive steps to ensure an uninterrupted hot water supply and the comfort of your home.
