Water Heater Repair and Replacement Specialists

With Products and Solutions from Rinnai, TruTankless, AO Smith, and Bradford White, Shelton Plumbing offers the best in water heater repair and replacement services for residential and commercial use.

There’s nothing quite as surprising as being in the middle of a shower, all soapy, and suddenly running out of hot water to finish comfortably rinsing.

The cold reality of running short of hot water is often this is the first indicator your water heater has a problem.

The fix may be as easy as replacing a bad element, if there are no other symptoms or leaks.

On the other hand, if your water heater shows significant signs of rust and leaking, it may be time to consider replacing it.

Newer water heaters are more energy efficient and come in a variety of types for both residential and commercial use.


Residential Systems

Shelton Plumbing can make a fix or handle a complete new water heater installation.

Water Heater Repair

There are a few signs besides the shortage of hot water that indicate you may need to have your water heater repaired. Upon visual inspection, do you see a lot of rust or moisture on the tank? Listen closely for the sound of running water or other noises. Take a sniff. Do you notice any odd smells?

Many of these issues can be repaired without investing in a new unit. Call Shelton Plumbing today to schedule a technician.

A leaking water heater is a waste of resources.

A water heater has one job–making water hot. If you have a tradition residential water heater tank, it will also store that hot water.

If your tank is leaking, you are sending your hard earned money down the drain. With the constant refilling of the tank and reheating of water, both your financial and natural resources are being lost.

No hot water? Never again with a Rinnai Tankless Water Heater.


Advances in technology have created newer products including the energy-efficient, tankless water heater. Shelton Plumbing represents Rinnai Tankless Water Heater units designed to see that you never run out of hot water again.

Water Heater Maintenance

Whether you have a new water heater or your current unit is working fine, it is a good idea to perform regular maintenance. Follow the manufacturers’ guidelines. If you don’t have the maintenance manual, you can often find them online.

For conventional tank water heaters, regularly flush out the unit to remove any sediment that may collect in the bottom.

Water heater leaking from bottom? Don’t fret just yet.

If you see water around the bottom of your water heater tank there are a couple of things to check before you throw in the towel for a new one.

WARNING! Before you ever do any work on your water heater, always turn off the water and power to the system.

First, check the drain valve, formally called the T&P valve. This valve regulates temperature and pressure. Make sure it is not leaking around the edge of the valve. A leaky valve is a fairly easy and inexpensive fix.

Second, make sure the tank is not leaking. Water may be running down the tank to the bottom from the top, which could lead to the tank corroding from the inside and time for a new water heater.


Water heater leaking from top.

If you find water on the top of your water heater, you most likely have a leak in one of the water pipe valves.

Check the nuts on the inlet and outlet pipes. Tighten them as needed. If that does not fix the leaking, replace the bad pipe valve.

Shelton Plumbing technicians are outfitted with a large variety of water heater parts to repair your leaks quickly.

Water Heater Replacement Cost vs. Repair Cost

Have Shelton Plumbing do a cost comparison to either repair or replace your water heater. Weigh all the factors then let us do the work.

Conventional Water Heater Installation

Shelton Plumbing has a full line of conventional water heaters ready for installation when you decide it’s time to replace your current unit.

Removing your old unit and installing your new system can be done in a few hours, getting you back in hot water fast.

Tankless Water Heater Installation

In many of today’s modern homes, owners are installing tankless water heaters for a number of reasons. These units vary in size but are small enough to hang on a wall out of the way in just about any place you choose. Even outside. This durable water heater will last longer and require less maintenance over the years.

Installation requires an experienced plumber like Shelton Plumbing, especially if you are transitioning from a conventional unit to tankless. We are trained, experienced, fast, and will get it done right.


Consider several tankless water heater installation cost factors.

There are a number of factors to think about when you decide to go tankless.

Make sure you choose the right size water heater. Tankless water heaters are based on their rate of flow so be sure you get the one best for your family size and usage.

Know the energy rating. The more efficient units have a higher number.

How long is the manufacturer’s warranty? It might be worth paying more for a longer warranty period.

Does your state or county utility company offer rebates or tax credits?

Does your plumber have the qualifications to do the tankless water heater installation? With Shelton Plumbing, the answer is YES.


24/7 Water Heater Service

Remember, we have 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, emergency service available. This includes service for a malfunctioning water heater.

Shelton Plumbing carries conventional, tankless, and hybrid water heater systems and represents top manufacturers.

Gas Water Heater Repair

Gas water heaters operate a bit differently than electric water heaters. They may run on natural gas or LP gas so they have a gas supply line. In addition, they contain a burner with a thermocouple, which controls the gas flow and is usually connected to the control valve on the exterior of the tank.

Any of these parts can be faulty on a gas unit without there being damage to the tank itself.

To be sure your gas water heater is working properly, contact Shelton Plumbing for an inspection.

Tankless Water Heater Maintenance

Make sure you review the manufacturer’s maintenance guidelines for your particular model.

And if you need a certified plumber, call Shelton Plumbing.
