Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?
At the forefront of our customers’ minds is the question, “Is this something that can be fixed, or do I need to buy a new one?” Most water heater problems are easy to diagnose. There are many components to a gas or electric water heater that may require adjustment to restore hot water to your home.
We will efficiently identify the cause of your water heater problem and advise you on the best course of action to repair or replace a gas water heater, electric water heater, or tankless water heater. Sometimes simple plumbing maintenance, such as flushing your water heater, will resolve the issue.
If a replacement is needed, our licensed Austin water heater repair experts will discuss the pros and cons of different types of water heaters. There are several options, with varying degrees of cost and energy efficiency. Installing more energy-efficient appliances, such as a tankless water heater or solar water heater, can help you qualify for federal, state, and local tax credits and rebates.

Get Hot Water Within Seconds with a Recirculation System!
Installing a hot water recirculation system is an ideal way to guarantee hot water on demand in any plumbing fixture in your home. The hot water recirculation system uses a pump to rapidly move water through your plumbing system. Since you have instant access to hot water, the system helps you conserve water. Some systems can also help you save energy.
A hot water recirculation system incorporates a pump, an electronic controller and a zone valve. Systems may be configured with an on/off button or utilize a thermostat or timer to ensure continuous availability of hot water. If you set up the system through a thermostat or timer, the system is constantly pushing cool water back to the hot water heater and hot water to your fixtures, and is less energy efficient. When your system uses a switch operating system, simply press the button on to activate the pump. These systems save energy when left in the off position, typically overnight. Turning the system on is as simple as pressing one button and the pump rapidly moves hot water from your hot water heater to your plumbing fixtures – within seconds!

Consider Tankless Water Heaters
Tankless water heater systems are a cost-effective solution compared to a water heater that uses a tank. The main advantage of using a tankless water heater system is that they eliminate the extra cost of keeping 40 to 50 gallons of water hot in a storage tank, so you waste less energy. 1st Home & Commercial Services can upgrade your water system to the latest energy-efficient technology.
