Water Heater Repair

Water heaters can fail. Even though they last decades, they seem to fail at the worst times. That’s where Kay Plumbing comes in. When disaster strikes (or when you want to take preventative measures), our experts can handle your water heater.

Water Heater Repair 

When you have emergency repairs you need done on your water heater NOW, then Kay Plumbing is the solution. We handle gas and electric water heaters, tankless water heaters, and water heater maintenance. If it needs repaired or replaced, we can do it. One of the reasons we are different from other Columbia plumbing companies is because of our full parts and labor warranty. If any water heaters or parts break under warranty, we will fix or replace them for free!


Water Heater Installation

We install the latest models of popular water heaters, including installation and repair services for tankless water heaters like Takagi, Rinnai, Bosch, Aquastar, Paloma, State, AO Smith, and Rheem. Our quality technicians are factory trained to repair and install Noritz tankless water heaters. And, if you are looking for tank-type water heater installation and repair, we are factory trained for Bradford White, AO Smith, State, Rheem, Whirlpool, GE, American, and Kenmore, and State tank-style water heaters. 

Don’t go with national chains and one-size-fits-all installers! Go with a locally-trusted plumbing company for your water heater needs. Being locally owned and operated gives Kay Plumbing the edge over any chain appliance store who promises installation or repair when you purchase water heaters from them. Kay Plumbing offers 6 and 12-year full parts and labor warranties on all of our standard and premiere models. We have the utmost faith in our technicians, out plumbers, and out equipment, and want to pass this faith (and savings!) on to our customers.

Water Heater Tune-Ups

You should tune up your water heater every single year. This extends the lifetime of the water heater and reduces the likelihood that it will fail at an unexpected time. Annual water heater service improves energy efficiency up to 15%… which, over the years, pays for the annual maintenance costs and then some. A tune-up also just ensures you get reliable hot water, every time.

When we check your water heater, we inspect any place where energy could be less than optimal. This includes

  • Safety Relief Valves 
  • Emergency Shutoff Valves 
  • Water Temperature 
  • Burner Assemblies (gas only) 
  • Heating Elements (electric only) 
  • Intake Filters (gas only) 
  • Power Supply 
  • Emergency Gas Shutoff Valve (gas only) 
  • Flu Draft and piping (gas only) 
  • Water Pressure 
  • Leaks 
  • Corrosion

We also remove sediment in the water heater from mineral build-up. This increases efficiency and ensures you get hotter water to your sinks and showers.


Tankless Water Heaters

Our Customers in the Midlands are looking more and more into tankless water heaters. These units provide savings on energy and water usage and provide hot water on a continual basis (unlike tank heaters that can run out of hot water over a period of use).  

 Kay Plumbing also specializes in the installation and repair of gas and electric tankless water heaters.
