Burlingame plumberWhen you purchase a new home it is exciting, and you have all kinds of plans for the future. Maybe you want to paint it a certain way or a special color. Maybe it is putting up shelves or changing the doors. There are all kinds of things that are fairly easy to do yourself. As a homeowner, your new home is your palette. You can change it, or leave it the same. The choice is yours. However, with that new homes come changes and problems that you might not know of before hand. Broken windows, broken faucets, a plug that won’t work. Many of these can still be handled on your own, though you may have to learn a new skill to take care of them. However, there are some repairs that are best left to the professionals, one of these types of repairs is your water heater.

There are many things that can go wrong with a water heater. Perhaps it is a leak. Or maybe the pilot light won’t stay lit. Or maybe you just aren’t getting enough hot water. Whatever the case call a plumber.

Water heaters have a pretty long service life, but things start to go wrong as they age. Just like with anything else. The plumber will know if it is a problem that can be fixed, or if it is time to retire the old water heater, and get a new one. If it is time to get a new one you will want it installed by a plumber anyway. This way you know that the water is hooked up properly. The gas will be connected properly. The plumber will also check to verify that the gas is not leaking. This could be dangerous, even fatal if it is done wrong. Then he will relight the pilot light for you and you will be back in business. No stress, no mess.
