Gas Water Heater Repair in West Chester, PA

Reliable Gas Water Heater Repair, Replacement & Installation

We rely on our water heaters for warm, relaxing baths, cleaning the dishes, and more. Water heaters are key to our comfort and daily tasks. When your gas water heater stops working as it should or breaks down completely, you need service — and fast! Call on the plumbers at Signature HVAC for all of your gas water heater needs.

What Causes Gas Water Heaters to Break?

Eventually, your water heater is going to leak. That’s the most common problem, but the type of leak will determine the repair it needs. A top leak indicates water connections might be loose or disconnected. A leak from the bottom could be a condensation problem. If you have a water heater leak, contact Signature HVAC right away.

Common causes of water heater problems are:

  • Leak – The heating element gasket may be over-tightened or loose. The T&P (temperature and pressure relief) valve could be stuck, overheating, or malfunctioning.
  • No hot water – This could be a broken heating element, pilot light off, faulty thermostat or incorrect thermostat settings, or a tripped circuit breaker.
  • Noises – This could be sediment buildup in the tank or on the heating element.
  • Rust – Your water heater sacrificial anode rod could have failed, or your glass-lined tank has corroded.
  • Smells – The “rotten egg” smell is decayed bacteria that causes a smelly gas to infiltrate your water pipes.
  • Water not hot enough/too slow – We check several causes:
    • Dip tube
    • Heating elements
    • Obstructed flue or vent
    • The water heater may be too small
    • Water lines’ connections
    • Water too hot — The heating element’s thermostat should be set at 120 degrees. It may be set too high.​​​​

Signs You Need Gas Water Heater Repair

  • No hot water
  • Noises (whining, popping, rumbling)
  • Smells/odors
  • Taking too long to heat
  • Water too hot/too cold

Gas Water Heater Repairs in West Chester, PA

Your gas water heater should provide about 10 to 12 years of problem-free service, but that isn’t always the case. ​​​​​​​When you need water heater repair, choose Signature HVAC. Our expert plumbers have the skills and expertise to address all of your concerns quickly and efficiently.

Gas Water Heater Replacement vs. Repair

If your gas water heater is over 10 years old, you may want to bite the bullet and invest in a new water heater. A lot depends on water heater maintenance over the years.

You should replace your water heater if:

  • The repair will be more than 50% of the cost of a new gas water heater.
  • The water heater is near the end of its life.
  • Water heating bills have gotten higher.
  • You’ve already had several repairs.

Signature Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing For Gas Water Heater Repair, Replacement, and Installation

Before investing in a new gas water heater, contact the Signature HVAC plumbing professionals. We can help you choose the right gas water heater model for your home. When selecting your system, we’ll discuss:

  • Capacity – Your lifestyle and the number of people using hot water play a big role in determining the size of your water heater.
  • Dimensions – Location is important in determining the height and width of your water heater. It is also a factor in the installment difficulty and expense.
  • Energy efficiency – The annual cost of operating gas water heaters will vary widely. High-efficiency water heaters can lower your monthly energy use (and bills). They tend to increase your home’s resell value too.
  • Recovery – If you have two people showering, a load of clothes washing, and want to run your dishwasher, can your water heater handle it? How long will it be before you have the hot water you need?

Signature Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will give you the information you need to make knowledgeable decisions about gas water heater repair and replacement. Our plumbing pros will safely, efficiently, and affordably install your new unit.

Let’s talk about it before you have an emergency. Call 484-247-4271 or contact Signature.

"Bob Seeger was our technician this time around. His level of professionalism was exceptional - it really stood out! Overall we are very happy that we switched to Signature several years ago!"

-Mark Kenney

"The Signature techs who come out to our house are always top-notch professionals. Very courteous, careful, and thorough. They always provide great explanations of the work that they are doing. I never feel like I am being pressured into unnecessary work or equipment replacement (like I used to feel with Service Experts). Today, Wade was the tech who came out. He was here exactly on time at 8am, and was done within an hour. Great work and another great service experience from Signature! Update 9/27/2016 - Today Bob Seeger came out to service our system in preparation for the winter. I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and courtesy. Before he started, we sat down and he clearly explained what he would be doing as part of the maintenance, and we agreed upon the need to replace the filter on the main unit, and also to perform humidifier maintenance as part of the work. After the work was complete he made recommendations for overall system enhancements that we should consider. Signature really has top-notch people working for them, and I continue to be extremely happy that we switched over to them several years ago."

-Mark Kenney

"Bob Seeger was our person to service our furnace and water heater. He showed me a problem with our water heater that could have been a major problem. He was very honest, great and so efficient! He fixed the problem. I am kind of hoping he will be the one to work with in the spring."

-Debbie Kaba

"Always feel confident with the work performed by Danny from Signature."

-William Stolting

"Bob was quite knowledgeable of the type of geothermal system that I have in my house. Before completing the annual maintenance/tune-up that I had requested, he asked relevant questions about my geothermal system (e.g., date of installation, last service, temperature preference, electric usage, etc.). After inspecting and servicing my system, Bob explain service that my system needed now and recommendations that would benefit my system. He explained the options in a non-pressured approach, as well as, the benefit in joining Signature HVAC's service plan which was helpful. Throughout the service visit, Bob was courteous, friendly and respectful. My wife and I were very satisfied and we plan to continue to use Signature HVAC in the future."

-John Schmitt

-Dennis Carlson

-Adam Lusk

"Bob was very professional and informative on the heating & air condition job at my house. He is a very nice and caring person! Thank you!"

-Colleen Esgro

"Your whole team is outstanding."

-John price

"Daniel Cross (Signature) completed a thorough and quick fall service on my heating systems. What I liked best about Danny is that he spoke to me as a knowledgeable customer rather than treating me like a clueless homeowner. So refreshing to be treated with respect by an HVAC provider! He had an opportunity to "upsell" me on a service, but was honest and told me that it wasn't valuable in my situation. I would certainly trust him to service my equipment again, and would definitely recommend him to a friend."

-Susan Wentz

"Thanks again for walking me through the process and pointing out what was going on in my system. Mold be gone! Professional and friendly service. Thanks for your help."

-Mia Bosna

"Travis is another courteous, fine professional working for you!"

-John price

-Ric DeAngelis

"We are very pleased with Signature and their very knowledgeable Technicians. We will be continuing our By-Annual service/tune-up with them...."

-Ric DeAngelis

"I have used Signature for about 10 years now. They provide excellent service. Bob Seeger was my most recent technician and he was on time, polite, informative, and technically proficient. I highly recommend signature for your HVAC needs. I have geothermal, and they are excellent at this technology."

-Charlie Phillips

"Mike B came out for the biannual check of the upstairs system--we had replaced the downstairs system in June---we are very satisfied. Mike was thorough, very professional, answered all my (sometimes inane) questions and kept the house clean. Good job Mike and thanks."
