WATER HEATER REPAIR
If you are in the middle of a shower and you run out of hot water then you have a problem.
4 Main Hot Water Problems 1. The water heater tank is too small and it needs to be replaced by a larger hot water tank. 2. An element is burnt and the element of the water heater needs to be repaired. 3. Your family is too big and an additional water heater needs to be installed by a professional. 4. The water heater may need servicing.
Electric water heaters run on 240 volts and this isn't something a weekend warrior should try to troubleshoot. The shock from a charge like this can be fatal.
Some of the first things to check for when inspecting your hot water heater if you are running out of hot water, include sediment build up inside the tank due to the type of hard water that the city or private water supply is delivering to the tank, a leaky pressure valve can be losing it integrity and need to be replaced, an element can be burnt and need to be changed, or lastly the thermostat could have been compromised sending bad signals to the elements. All four of these situations can be remedied with a phone call to Lafayette Plumbing Repair.
Replacing an entire water heater unit can be costly, so Lafayette Plumbing Repair always likes diagnose the equipment properly before pulling the water heating system. Which brings us to the next section.
At some point it doesn't make sense to repair your tank because the tank is too old with parts that are too expensive. If that is the case, Lafayette Plumbing Repair has a complete selection of water heaters that we can recommend and cover through our warranty program. We do work on Bradford, White, Rheem, and many other types of hot water tanks. In south Louisiana we do not warranty or advise the installation of any tankless water heaters. We have found that they are more trouble than they are worth. Though the tankless water heaters can be up 35% more energy efficient, we find that the money saved is spent with head aches and service charges.

We service Lafayette, Scott, Duson, Carencro, Rayne, Crowley, Jennings, Opelousas, Churchpoint, Sunset, Grand Coteau, and Leonville. Call us to get in touch with a plumbing professional.
Our licensed plumbers are equipped with sewer machines used to unclog some of the worst pipes. Old homes have old pipes and at times can't handle the volume of waste that they once did. More often than not customers are flushing baby wipes, feminine hygeine products, q-tips, and others down old pipes causing sewer systems to back-up. Our technicians have the experience and the tools needed to get the system flowing again. If you end up in a situation like this where your toilet is overflowing and the plunger doesn't work anymore, then you need to call a professional. If the problems persist after the drains have been unclogged, an upgrade to the sewer system may be the next best thing. We are a full-service plumbing company and can install a new sewer system if necessary. Give us a call at 337-451-1900 and we will schedule a site visit at a time that is convenient for you and one of our licensed plumbers in Lafayette, LA.
