Water Heater RepairArctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating is skilled at making repairs to both gas and electric hot water heaters. These two different types of hot water heaters require specific attention to make sure that all repairs are done to minimize future problems.
Gas Water Heaters – This type of hot water heater is designed with a gas valve that cycles itself on and off as the water heats and cools in the tank. Most gas water heaters have a pilot light that heats the tank at the bottom. The pilot flame is controlled by a thermocouple. Gas hot water heaters are built with a safety valve, usually located on top, which controls water pressure. If the pressure in the tank of the gas water heater gets to high, it will open allowing the water to safely be discharged to an area that will do no damage. Gas hot water heaters are also built with a flu that discharges the harmful fumes to the outside of your home.
Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating is highly trained in all aspects repairing gas hot water heaters with a focus on professionally making repairs and providing you with a safe and reliable hot water. Our technicians go through a complete checklist when diagnosing your gas water heater to make sure that all important components are operating properly.
Electric Water Heaters – Electric hot water heaters use heating elements to create hot water. These elements are located on the top and bottom of the water tank. Both heating elements are controlled by thermostats to keep the water at the desired temperature. Just like gas water heaters, they are protected by a temperature and pressure relief valve.
The technicians at Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating are trained to make professional repairs to electric water heaters. We can replace thermostats, heating elements, temperature and pressure valves, dip tubes, and anode rods. A common problem that we fix is the drain at the bottom of the electric water heater tank. This is remedied with the installation of a new drain valve.
Water Heater Maintenance Service
An Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating technician can provide periodic water heater maintenance service for your home's gas or electric water heater. Ask your Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating technician for more details on specific water heater maintenance programs that are available.
During a maintenance service on an electric hot water heater, we inspect the temperature and pressure relief valve to make sure that it is not seized up. Both the top and bottom heating elements are inspected for proper operation. The water from the tank is drained through the bottom drain inspecting the contents for any abnormalities. Finally, we check the emergency shut off valve directly above the tank of the water heater to make sure that it working properly.
On gas hot water heaters, the technicians at Arctic Fox Air Conditioning and Heating give special attention to all fixtures that bring gas into the burners. This includes inspection of the burner, the flue, and all piping and connections that the gas flows through. We use a meter to detect any carbon monoxide leaks. We also inspect the temperature and pressure relief valve and emergency shut off valve for proper operation. Finally, we drain the tank of the water heater to remove sediment from the bottom.
