Don’t let a broken water heater cause discomfort to your family. In Daly City, CA, you can always rely on Works Plumbing for water heater repair. While a brand new water heater might not have any trouble for a while, after a few years of wear and tear (and especially without proper maintenance), you’ll likely notice some signs that something may not be quite right. This deterioration will eventually impact performance, which often results in higher electricity or fuel consumption. Minerals in hard water can also settle at the base of the tank. The minerals build a layer at the burner. This affects the water heating process so the burner has to work more. This results in overheating which weakens the tank.
