Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. If you find yourself in the middle of a cold shower or see a puddle of water around your water tank then it might be time to replace your water heater. There are several different reasons that your water heater may fail including:
- Faulty Heating Element

- Defective Thermostat
- Hard Water

How Are Water Heater Problems Identified In Portland?
3 Mountains Plumbing has been serving the greater Portland area for over 12 years. We are the area experts on water heaters and the common issues they experience. When we arrive at your home, we will examine your water heater and evaluate all of the components to determine the cause of the malfunction.
As soon as our analysis is complete, we will provide you with a flat rate quote that lists all of your options for repairing your water heater.
A water heater that still has some useful years left may just need a component such as a heating element or valve replaced to return it to working order. In the event that your water heater is older than 10 years when a leak has developed, a replacement water heater will be recommended.
What Are The Benefits Of A New Water Heater?
Water heaters have improved tremendously over the past few years. Conventional tank water heaters provide you with greater energy efficiency and reduced water consumption. If you are considering a tankless water heater, you may also see a reduction in both water use and energy costs. We offer our customers both conventional and tankless water heaters that are powered by both electric and gas. When deciding on a new water heater you should consider the following questions:
- How much hot water does your home use?
- What is the ground water temperature?
- Does your home have a natural or propane gas line?
- Do you need a continuous source of hot water?
Having an answer to all of these questions will help our knowledgeable plumber make the appropriate recommendations for your new water heater.
