One of the qualities that sets Bell Cow apart is that don’t just haveplumbing technicians, but also electricians that give us the ability to work on water heaters of all types – from tanked and tankless, to gas and electric.
Water Heater Repair
Common problems associated with water heaters include the following:
- Leaks from the tank
- Water temperature problems, including loss of hot water
- Rust colored water
- Off-putting odor
- Electrical problems
Bell Cow has the solution to all of these concerns. The first thing our plumbing technicians will do is perform a diagnostic of the system and determine the cause of the problem and the age of the unit.
Some important questions that we will ask:
- Is the unit still under warranty?
- Has the unit received regular maintenance?
- How long have the problems existed?
The answer to these questions from a Bell Cow plumber will often determine the scope of the repair. It is important to keep in mind that some of the issues listed above can be serious and require quick action – If you note a leak from your water heater, or rust colored water, call Bell Cow immediately. A leaking tank with an inoperable drain pan can create water damage to carpets, floors, and walls. Rust colored water could point to an internal breakdown of the components within a water heater that keep the water clean.
Routine maintenance on a water heater can extend the life of a unit. As part of a Bell Cow Plumbing Maintenance plan, we annually flush the system to remove any sediment, pressure test the relief valve, check and adjust the temperature, and inspect the operational effectiveness of the gas supply among other items (for gas systems).
Water Heater Installation
When a repair isn’t an option, or you are looking at replacing an older unit, we can recommend a new engergy efficient and affordable water heater to replace your old one and better yet, all of our estimates on water heater replacements are free of charge! Bell Cow plumbers will take the time to measure the home to ensure proper sizing of the system, and then we’ll present a range of options that are best suited to your home. We install the following makes and models of water heaters:
- Tankless Water Heaters

When considering a new water heater, it is important to consider the changing demands of your household. How many people are currently living in your home? How much are you paying on utility bills? Was your old system sufficient in providing the right temperature? Would an alternative fuel source be better suited for your home?
Bell Cow can provide the answers to all of these questions and more. One of the most important choices in the selection process are price and warranty. Bell Cow offers flexible payment options including financing a water heater for up to 96 months. In addition, we honor all manufacturer warranties and offer customers the option of extending the warranty with a Bell Cow maintenance agreement!
