    • Frequently Asked Questions

      Can a water heater be repaired?

      Yes. In many cases, you don’t have to replace your whole water heater when it stops working, you just have to make a repair. We can diagnose the issue and figure out if you’d need to repair or replace it.

      What would cause a hot water heater to stop working?

      If you aren’t getting hot water, the unit might not have power or its thermostat could be faulty. The electric heating element could have an issue or the pilot light may be out. There are many possible issues and a lot of them are repairable.

      Does Home Depot repair water heaters?

      Yes, the Home Depot can service water heaters, but they don’t offer emergency repairs and may not have parts in stock. Your local plumber at Staten Island Plumbing can respond to your service call any time of day or night with the right parts on the truck.

      How much does it cost to repair a water heater?

      According to Home Advisor, the average water heater repair in Staten Island, NY is $672, which is a bit higher than the national average of $573.

      How long should a commercial water heater last?

      A commercial water heater, for an apartment building or restaurant, for example, should last at least 10 years.

      Can water heaters last 20 years?

      A tank water heater is really only efficient for 10 to 15 years. You’ll pay more in repairs and energy costs after that time than it’s worth. On the other hand, tankless water heaters can last 20 years or more.

      How do you know when your water heater needs replacing?

      You should consider replacing your tank water heater if it’s over 10 years old (use the serial number to find out the age). Replace it if it requires frequent repairs or doesn’t give you enough hot water anymore. Rusty water is another sign that it’s time to replace the water heater.
