We install, replace, and service tank and tankless water heaters. Ask us about on-demand tankless water heaters that generate more hot water with increased energy efficiency.
Reasons A Water Heater Will Stop Working
The Electricity Or Gas Is Discontinued
Sometimes the simplest explanation is the most likely. Reset the circuit breaker for the water heater.
Mineral Scale Buildup
Over time, water heaters can accumulate mineral scale and sediment in the tanks, which can cause your water heater to not heat efficiently.
Broken Heating Element
If you have no hot water, it could be a bad heating element. Heating elements in water heaters can break from time to time. Our expert team at Peaden can replace the broken element.
Your Water Heater’s Thermostat Is Set Too Low
As the temperature outside changes, so does the temperature of the water feeding your water heater. If your shower is cold, too hot, or just not hot enough, the thermostat on the water heater may not be adjusted properly.
Signs You Need Water Heater Repair Or Replacement
Signs you need water heater repair include:
- Discolored/rusty water
- Floor puddles near or under your water heater
- Limited hot water
- Mineral buildup
- Odd-smelling tap water
If your water heater is 10 years old, it may be time to budget for a new water heater. No matter what your water heater’s age, if you’ve already had one or more repairs, it may be time to cut your losses and invest in a new, energy-efficient water heating system!
If you think you need to install a new system, call our professional plumbers, and we can set up your water heater replacement service.

Types of Water Heaters
There are many options, reputable brands, makes, and models of water heaters, so it can be hard to know which one is right for your home. We can help you decide what you need based on your lifestyle, the size of your home, and the number of people in your household.
Water heater types include:
Condensing water heaters: If your home has gas heat and you need a larger storage tank capacity, this might be a solution.
Storage tank water heaters: This is the traditional water heater found in most Alabama and Florida homes. Gas water heaters usually cost less to operate than electric, but they cost more at point-of-purchase.
Tankless water heaters: On-demand water heating makes sense for many homes as they can provide about 3.5 gallons of water per minute.
We’ll be honest about how much mileage you can expect from your current water heating system, and we’ll also be upfront about pricing for your new unit.
Call (409) 855-2965 for water heater repair or replacement.
