Water Heater Repair and Installation in Marion, INMr Kool2021-11-25T09:09:03-05:00
A hot shower in the morning, clean dishes at night, stains out of clothing, washing your hands and everything in between is made better with a hot water heater. Without a reliable water heater, the appliances in your Marion, IN home can’t work as they are meant, and you’re left shivering in the shower. Just like any other appliance in your home, your water heater requires attention, maintenance and occasional repairs to keep it running effectively.
Common Water Heater Repairs
Most water heater repair issues are obvious to detect. Here are some of the most common problems. Does this sound familiar?
My water heater is making strange noises: Some noise is harmless, but it’s a good idea to call in a water heater repair before the problem gets worse just to make sure the system is well-maintained
My water is dirty: This is usually a sign of corrosion and if left untreated, your heater will likely develop a leak. You can fix it, but only if you catch it early.
My water stinks: This is likely due to bacteria in the tank, you can have your system flushed or replace the anode rod which is a common water heater repair.
I have water leaking from my water heater: Anytime you see water leaking from you’re the hot water heater, it can be concerning. First, notice whether it’s leaking from the top or the bottom.
From the top: This is usually due to loose pipes or a failed valve and is often an easy repair.
From the Bottom: This is usually normal, most electric water heaters produce condensation and have an overflow pipe which produces water. However, a significant amount of water from the actual tank itself usually means you need a new unit and it’s time to call a professional.
When I turn on the hot water, the pressure drops: Most often low pressure means your pipes might be too small. There may be other water heater repair options to avoid repiping your house, but these can only be determined by a professional.
My hot water runs out too fast: This could be a tripped breaker, thermostat, or a problem with one of the heating elements. These elements can be repaired or replaced without buying a whole new system.
My water takes forever to heat up: If your heat is taking longer than usual to show up, it could be due to age or buildup on your heating element. Your water heater could probably use a good cleaning to solve this problem.
I can’t get the water to cool down at all: Again, this is likely a thermostat or a wiring issue that should be looked at by a professional. Even rewiring can be a simple same-day water heater repair in most cases.
Different Types Of Water Heaters
When it comes to residential or commercial water heaters, there are five main types used in Marion, IN homes and businesses.
1. Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater: This is what most people are most familiar with, it’s a large tank that holds water to be heated. The size of your tank determines how much hot water you have available at once.
2. Tankless Water Heater: This is more modern technology that allows water to be heated on-demand, so you have an unlimited supply of hot water. There is no tank involved, just a series of super-heated coils that flow with water when you need it.
3. Heat Pump Water Heater (Hybrid Water Heater): This type is a more energy efficient option that uses heat in the air and the ground to heat your water. It still uses electricity to move the heat, but not to generate the heat. It usually cuts energy usage in half or more if you live in an area that is usually very warm. This style of heater is quite large, sometimes up to 8-feet tall.
4. Solar Powered Water Heater: This water heater combines with the power of the sun to heat your water. It makes a great addition to a home that already uses solar panels. The energy from the panels is transferred to a closed-loop system and heats water in a tank, similar to a conventional water heater – but costs less to run.
5. Condensing Water Heater: If you use natural gas to heat your house, this might be a good option for you. A condensing water heater funnels heated exhaust from your existing natural gas system to heat your water. It is a tank system that recycles the energy you’re already using to heat the water in the tank.
Water Heater Installation: How To Pick The One For You
If your water heater suffers severe damage or has had too many repairs, it is probably best to install a new one. When it’s time to upgrade, you will enjoy additional benefits including:
Better hot water recovery rate
Smaller in size thus saving space
Selecting a new water heater is not something we recommend doing on your own. Instead, talk to one of our expert technicians in Marion, IN to get their expert opinion on which one is the best for your needs.
There are 3 main things you need to consider:
Fuel Type: The fuel type may be electric, oil, geothermal, natural gas, propane, or solar. This will affect the operation cost, size, and efficiency of your unit.
Size: The size you choose depends on your household demands and the type of system. Choose the size that will provide all the hot water you need while still maintaining efficiency for your home.
Energy Efficiency: Water heating typically accounts for about 18% of your utility bill. To maximize your energy and cost savings, every unit comes with an energy efficiency rating based on the amount of hot water produced per unit of fuel. This is important to understand before making a water heater purchase.

From the time I initially called Eric for a quote on a whole home fresh install, to the time... it was complete, took just over 3 weeks start to finish. Eric was very communicative, professional, courteous, and informative during the whole process. Tanner and his crew were extremely professional, helpful, and thorough in their installation. I had a crew of guys at the house for 4 days, and not once did I see anyone even taking a break. They cleaned up as they worked, took the time to explain things to me as I asked, and went above and beyond the initial scope of work that was agreed upon. They even identified AND REPAIRED a few problems with the home that were preexisting. These guys are true craftsmen that take pride not just in the work, but in the finished product. I called Eric the evening that they finished the job to ask a question, and he showed up to the house within 30 minutes to help me.I can’t say enough great things about Mr. Kool, and if you are hesitating to call them, don’t! You won’t be disappointed.Thank you, Eric, Tanner, and the rest of the crew, for a job well done!read more

My experience with Eric was 5-star from the beginning. He was very responsive, explained my... options, and helped me understand the process. He and his crew installed an entire new HVAC/heating/air conditioning system, including tearing out the old duct work and installing all new duct work. Eric has also contacted me to see how the system is working - which is great, by the way - and I really appreciated his checking! I am VERY pleased with my new system and I recommend Eric to anyone who needs HVAC work done! Thanks Eric and crew!read more
