Do I Need Water Heater Services in Chicago?
Could you benefit from our Chicago water heater services? Watch for these signs that you should give ABC a call:
- Strange sounds coming from the water heater: Gurgling, bubbling, or popping sounds are all common when a water heater is about to fail.
- Insufficient hot water: A properly operating 40- or 50-gallon tank should be able to supply enough hot water for two or three back-to-back showers. If yours is unable to keep up, it may need maintenance to restore maximum output.
- Murky hot water: A water heater with rust on the inside may cause hot water to run brown. Draining and flushing the tank may resolve this problem.
- Leaky relief valve or rusty tank: Is your water heater leaking? Call ABC to address these problems before the tank fails completely and floods your Chicago-area home!

Our Most Frequently Asked Water Heater Questions
As a long-standing home service contractor in Chicago, we’ve been asked, and have answered, nearly countless questions about hot water heaters! Here are a few of our most frequently asked questions about gas water heaters and electric water heater systems.
Why is water leaking from the bottom of my water heater?
If your water heater is leaking the problem could actually lie with quite a few things. The relief or drain valve (the valve that holds water in the tank—often on the front face of the tank) is the most common source and is easily checked. If the relief valve is moist, then it has been leaking! This is also your best case, as the repair is easy. One of the other common, and far less fortunate, causes is tank damage. If the tank hasn’t been flushed or you neglected to get hot water heater repair at the right time, then sediment reacting with the bottom element could have caused irreparable damage and corrosion to the tank.
If too much pressure builds up in your tank, safety features included with the water heater allow you to release the relief valve, which should signal excess water to flow out via an overflow pipe that is usually aimed at the floor. If your water heater seems to be working well after you release the pressure, your system should be fine. But you can always call an experienced plumber to be sure!
Is a leaking water heater dangerous?
Potentially! Your tank doesn’t hold onto cold water—if you check your thermostat or control box, you’ll know the reservoir keeps water that is in excess of 120 degrees or more, so a fresh leak or a pressure leak (which can actually jet out) can be scalding.
How many years does a hot water heater last?
If well-maintained and of good quality, a hot water heater should last around a decade, give or take a couple of years. Some factors can impact this such as hard water or a failure to schedule a tank flush and fill service.
What should it cost to replace a water heater?
The answer here is going to depend very heavily on the product you want to purchase—the type of water heater, the size of the system, the brand, and other important factors. Whether you’re looking for a traditional system or you’re thinking about tankless water heaters will matter, too!
What is the best water heater brand?
The easy answer is that no brand would get far if they didn’t put out a quality product. It’s important to discuss your options with your trusted plumber, as they’ll help you pick the product and brand name that meets your needs and budget best. As for us, we’re fond of Bradford White for conventional storage water heaters and Navien for tankless water heaters.
