  • Electric Water Heaters — Why do homeowners love electric water heaters? Because they heat water up quickly, they’re relatively inexpensive to operate, they have great safety ratings, and they usually last a long time. What’s not to love?
  • Gas Water Heaters — Why do homeowners love gas water heaters? Gas water heaters are incredibly reliable and energy-efficient. These can also be safely used during a power outage, which means you can enjoy a hot shower no matter what’s going on with the city grid.
  • Tankless Water Heaters — Why do homeowners love tankless water heaters? Tankless water heaters save space, time, water, and money because they don’t continuously heat water that’s stored in a tank and saved for use. Instead, they heat water as it’s needed. What else is there to love? Without a tank, there’s no risk of a burst or leak, so homeowners with tankless water heaters don’t have to worry about water damage either.

We Specialize In Gas, Electric & Tankless Water Heater Repair

As water heaters age, they become less efficient, which means they require more fuel and more energy to do their job. Not only does this lead to higher gas or electric bills, but it also leads to wasted water and wasted time. Here are some other concerns as water heaters age:

  • leaks
  • rust and corrosion
  • impure water

But how can you tell if your water heater is going bad?


  • You seem to run out of how water faster than ever
  • You can’t get any hot water from your faucets at all or the water gets hotter than it should
  • You seem to wait ages for the water to get hot
  • The water coming from your faucets is discolored
  • You can’t get your water heater’s pilot light/main burner to stay lit
  • Your water heater is loud, smelly, or has water at its base

If your water heater is in need of repair or it’s been a while since you’ve had yours inspected, give Steele Plumbing a call. Our plumbers are experienced and professionally trained to inspect, diagnose, and repair gas, electric, and tankless water heaters.

Water Heaters - San Diego CA - Steele Plumbing, Inc.
  • Electric Water Heater Repairs — When these water heaters do fail, it’s usually related to the dip tubes, heating elements, breakers, thermostats, or wiring.
  • Gas Water Heater Repairs — When gas water heaters fail, it’s typically as a result of a problem with a gas valve, a dip tube, a thermocouple, a pressure relief valve, the thermostat, the pilot light, or the venting. Unfortunately, because these water heaters are fueled by gas, ignoring issues can be incredibly dangerous and can lead to fire or carbon monoxide poisoning.
  • Tankless Water Heater Repairs — When tankless water heaters fail or experience issues, it’s usually as a result of a venting issue, a sensor issue, or high demand for hot water that the water heater simply can’t keep up with.
