How to choose a Water Heater repair service company.

If you think your Water Heater is on the brink, it’s worth calling around and finding a licensed Water Heater repair company as soon as possible. Especially if we are in the winter months, as you do not want to be without hot water. Here are some tips to help you decide which Water Heater repair Company to fix your Water Heater.

Making sure any workmanship on your Water Heater is guaranteed is an absolute must. There are different brands of Water Heater including Potterton, Glow-worm, Vaillant, Bosh and Vokera so make sure the Water Heater repair company works with the manufacturers of the Water Heater. Normally, when a Water Heater repair company works with the Water Heater manufacturer they have the necessary knowledge in repairing or servicing the Water Heater as each Water Heater company gives service providers the correct manufacturers specifications in servicing the specific Water Heater

Be 100% sure to check that any Water Heater repair company is Gas Safe Registered.  The Gas Safe Register has replaced CORGI and always use a Gas Safe Registered engineer for any Water Heater repairs of Water Heater services. These are the only people who are qualified to work safely and legally on gas appliances.Water Heater Repairs | What should be included in a Water Heater service

As soon as the Water Heater engineer arrives, they should do a general visual once over to make sure the Water Heater meets all the manufacturer’s current standards.

These standard regulations will include:

·         Electrical Regulations

·         Gas Safety Regulations

·         Building Regulations

·         Water By-laws

Because some Water Heaters  can be pretty old and the fact that rules and regulations are changing all the time, some older Water Heaters will not pass the initial inspection and for this reason may require additional work to bring them up to regulations. This can be frustrating to homeowners who feel their Water Heater is working perfectly, yet they now have to spend money bringing them up to standards and current legislation. This work could include moving the Water Heater to a new location, which would involve building works.

After the visual check, your Water Heater repair engineer will carry out a pre-service check. Here they will find any general faults with the Water Heater.

The Water Heater cover will soon be removed for the Water Heater repairs engineer to perform a thorough visual check on all the components under the cover. These components will include the actual burner, the spark centre probe and the sensor probe, and off course the main injector. The engineer wants to check they are all undamaged.

The inside surface of the Water Heater casing should be cleaned. This can be done simply by hovering any dust from the Water Heater.Water Heater Repair | Any problems

Once the Water Heater Service engineer performs his checks, he/she will let you know if any repairs need to be made and if so, how much they will cost.

At the end of the service a gas tightness test should be performed to make sure there are absolutely no gas leaks from the Water Heater.

The Water Heater engineer will then put the Water Heater case back on making sure it is fully secure.

Please be aware a full service will take anything from 30 minutes to 1 hour.

You will then be given a service report which will show you all the tasks your plumber carried out on the Water Heater.

Is your Plumber Qualified?

First and foremost. Plumbers Texas | Do they have the correct qualification

Before a plumber even arrives at your property you should make sure they have the necessary qualifications and license to carry out any work. Of course depending in the work, the qualifications will differ. For example, if any of the plumber’s work will involve gas (like water heater repair or replacement), they must be registered with CORGI which is a license for use by only a carefully selected range of plumbers.

Does A PLUMBER charge for estimates?

The last thing you want, is to have to pay for a plumber to give a quote! You may think this never happens, but believe us, it does!

Be very clear when you speak to any St Albans plumbers that you will NOT pay for an estimate. A lot of plumbers will say they charge a ‘service fee’ just to look at the issue and to give an estimate. This is unacceptable and you should not have to pay this. If you hire a local St Albans plumber, this is less likely to happen as they are local and therefore do not have the travel costs, etc.

Next, ask the plumber about their response times.

This is a critical element because in a state of emergency (you house is gushing with water), you certainly do not want to wait a long time for your plumber to arrive and fix the problem. What you ought to do then is ask the plumber the worse case time scenario for them to arrive at your property. Every minute that goes by means more repair costs based on the structural damage your leak is causing.

A good idea is to know how to turn the water off in your property. So, should you find you have a leak, you can simply turn off your water supply whilst you wait for the St Albans plumber to arrive.

Finally, if you need a special task (like water heater repair) you should seek the right plumber in Texas

Too often an ‘all-rounder’ will say they can change a boiler when in fact, they have no or limited experience… they just want the job. This can be avoided by simply asking them for any specific qualifications before hiring them. Many plumbers specialise in one area of pluming and a simple Google check will help you find them.

Know these prevalent mistakes with choosing the right St Albans plumber and you will avoid them.
