Expert Tacoma Water Heater Installation

Reliable Water Heater Replacement - Call (253) 780-0844

We’ve become so accustomed to having access to clean, hot water from the taps found throughout our home that we don’t often think twice about what goes into making that possible. Our water heaters are responsible for not only bringing water from your water supply up to your water temperature, but also for holding the heated water until it’s needed. This continual cycle of draining, filling, and reheating takes its toll on the tank which contains your water heater, and after a while it eventually wears out and needs replaced.

Here at Bob Larson Plumbing, we know water heaters. When it comes to replacement for old water heaters or even installation of brand-new systems, we make sure that your new heater is set up right and working as it should so your home has a dependable and safe source of hot water to rely on. Our team of experienced Tacoma water heater installation technicians understands the importance of getting the job done right, and we never settle for less than second best when it comes to the quality of the products we install or the workmanship we offer for your home. And when it comes to customer service, you can be sure we’re always going to hold ourselves to high standards because we want to earn your complete and total satisfaction.

Looking to upgrade your water heater to a more energy efficient model? Call (253) 780-0844 for water heater installation in Tacoma.

Do I Need a New Water Heater?

The average water heater has a lifespan of around eight years, so if your tank is approaching or beyond this age, there’s a good chance that you should consider replacing it sometime soon. Water heaters aren’t like many other appliances in that when they give out they simply stop working; because they contain a quantity of water, they could spring a leak which could cause serious damage to your home. Because of the risk of leaks involved and the potential for danger to you and your family, it’s crucial that you don’t delay when it comes to getting your water heater replaced on-time. At Bob Larson Plumbing LLC, our Tacoma water heater installation team can help you determine which model of water heater is best for the needs of you and your family. Whether you are looking to replace your water heater with a traditional model or looking to upgrade with a tankless installation, give our team a call!

You may need a new water heater if:

  • Your Tank is Showing Signs of Rust
    If you notice signs of rust on the exterior of your water heater this could mean that a crack has formed and water from inside the unit is now leaking to the outside and rusting. This can happen from either age or wear and tear of the unit having to work twice as hard to warm the water due to sediment build up on the heating coils within the tank.
  • Your energy bills have increased steadily and you’re not sure why -
    Having a dramatically bigger energy bill can be a good wake up call on replacing your water heater. As your water heating unit gets older, it has to work twice as hard to warm your household's water. The heating coils within your water heater can also get a build up of sediment which can also take up space in your water heater, meaning your water heater has to make hot water much more often.
  • Your hot water is discolored with a reddish or brown-ish tinge to it -
    If you notice that your hot water is coming out of your faucet with a brown or red'ish color, this could be due to the inside of your water heater rusting. You'll want to call us as soon as you notice this as this can quickly become a health hazard to you and your household.
  • Not Enough Hot Water -
    Does your shower get cold before you are done? The most common sign a water heater is failing is that it doesn't produce enough hot water.

Minor issues such as dying heating elements, gas connection, or electrical connection problems may not necessarily warrant a total tank replacement, particularly if there are still a few years of valuable life left in your system. Our team can conduct these repairs for your system, and will always provide you with our honest, professional opinion regarding whether or not you should replace your tank or if a repair is a suitable choice at the time.

  • Both my wife and I were very pleased. I would hire them again without hesitation.

    “ Fantastic, friendly service, absolutely reasonably priced considering the difficulty of the job. ”

  • They were honest, professional and helpful.

    “John and AJ were in my home today to assess the need for a new dishwasher supply line. They were honest (I don't need one), professional, and helpful. Thank you!”

  • I'm very happy with the work that was done on a very snowy day and the cleanliness of the area when finished.

    “My Navien was definitely "sick" and I was looking for a certified Navien repair - Bob Larson's was the closest to me, and am I glad I called them! Thomas came out and made an assessment, and back a couple of days later with John. As I was in and out, Thomas explained each part of the system and I felt perfectly comfortable with the work that was done. I have a fairly complex house with multiple systems interacting and Thomas was alert to issues that could affect each and everyone from the changes made. I'm very happy with the work that was done on a very snowy day and the cleanliness of the area when finished. Definitely would recommend these guys again, and they will have my plumbing business in the future, Navien or not!”

  • Above & beyond the call of duty !

    “A retired multi-gifted craftsman in Tacoma recommended "Bob Larson Plumbing" to me. I'm SO GLAD. Eric came out made a few suggestions re my emergency shutoff valve, water heater and recirculating pump that saved me HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS of dollars. I am SO APPRECIATIVE. Eric had a tremendous attitude. He said: "We're your pals, we're your neighbors--call us any time." Wowwww You get FIVE GOLD STARS.”
