A water heater breakdown in your Hoover, AL, area home makes bathing, laundry, and cleaning nearly impossible to sustain for more than a day.

Our qualified pros offer emergency assistance, preventative maintenance, repairs, and replacement. We diagnose and resolve water heater problems, clogged drains, leaky faucets, sewers, and other issues.
Water Heater Installation and Replacement
A water heater typically lasts 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is older and in need of an expensive part or repeated repairs, installing a new unit will save you money in the long run.
If corrosion is visible, for example, and the tank leaks, it is time to install a new unit.
A rusted or leaky water heater can burst and flood your home with gallons of water that may damage the floor and nearby appliances. You can avoid the risk of water damage in your home by replacing your aging water heater before it begins to corrode and leak.
Our experts at Aux Home Services will recommend solutions that make the best use of your dollars and suit your water usage needs.
Water Heater Repairs in Hoover, AL
Your water heater needs attention if your tap water is lukewarm, varies in temperature, or quickly goes from hot to cold. The problem may be a failed drip tube, the component that conveys cold water to the bottom of your unit's tank for heating. A broken heating element also could be the cause.
Other signs your heater needs a professional assessment:
- The thermostat in your water heater may be damaged or simply on the wrong setting if your water temperature is either extremely cold or too hot.
- Popping or banging sounds indicate sediment build-up on the bottom of the tank. Sediment that accumulates on the heating element can keep your water from heating efficiently. It can also worsen your water quality.
- Rusty-looking water may signal corrosion inside the tank and a deteriorated anode rod.
- Corrosion can lead to leaks.
We can repair your water heater by swapping out defective parts, flushing the tank to eliminate sediment, or replacing the anode rod before it completely deteriorates. In some cases, however, it makes more sense financially to replace a unit rather than spend money on repairs.
