Water Heater Repairs in Oakland and Surrounding East Bay Area

Stuck Without Hot Water? We Can Help

A broken water heater can make life uncomfortable, to say the least. Without hot water, showering can become an absolute chore, dishes and laundry can go undone, and bathing children comfortably becomes nearly impossible. In a busy home, families can’t afford the inconvenience of a broken water heater.

That’s why we at Big Blue Plumbing answer calls day or night to take care of broken water heaters and other plumbing emergencies. We’ll work to assess and repair the problem as efficiently and effectively as possible, getting your hot water heater up and running in no time. Our professional, licensed heating experts are more than ready to put your water heater woes to rest.

Water Heater Repair

We at Big Blue Plumbing will repair or replace all models of electric, gas, or tankless water heaters as efficiently and as effectively as possible. Sometimes the repair is simple, such as a heating element failing before the rest of the water heater goes. Other times the repairs are more complicated or costly.

Whatever the issue, we will work to diagnose the problem quickly and correctly, presenting you with an estimate upfront before completing the repair. Unlike some water heater repair services, we won’t blindly go ahead with a costly repair if your water heater isn’t worth the investment. If your water heater is old or has other significant issues, continuing to sink money into repairs can wind up being more expensive than simply replacing the entire unit. Our experienced technicians will talk with you about your options and only complete a repair after consulting with you about the possibilities and expenses.

Hot Water Heater Services

In addition to providing prompt, effective water heater repair services, our experienced plumbing technicians at Big Blue Plumbing in Alameda, CA, provide full water heater installation. Sometimes a repair simply won’t take care of the problem you’re experiencing, while other times the expense of the repair isn’t worth shelling out on an old water heater. Whatever the reason, there are times when buying a new water heater becomes the necessary choice.

If you’re in that position, call on our experienced plumbers at Big Blue Plumbing to take care of the water heater installation. We’ll take care of replacing your old water heater while consulting you with the range of new water heater options available. Whether you want to go with an electric water heater, a solar water heater, a tankless water heater or a traditional one, we have you covered. And we stand firmly behind our installations with a guarantee, not only fixing your water heater for free if it fails but also giving you $100 in vouchers toward future service.
