However, with so many Water Heater repair companies locally, who do you hire?

This article will give you some advice on how to find the right Water Heater repair service company in Texas for you.

Your local Texas Water Heater repair service, will need to be registered with the Gas Safe registrar. It is actually illegal for a non-Gas Safe registered person to service or fix a Water Heater in the US. This has to be your first port of call in deciding which Texas Water Heater repair service to choose. When you speak to the Water Heater repair engineer, be sure to ask them if they are registered with the Gas Safe Registrar. If they are not, they could not work on your Water Heater… It is simply illegal.

In some cases, your hot water may be powered by electricity. In this instance, there is not an equivalent body such as the Gas Safe registrar for electric powered hot water. In this case, your best option is to ask the plumber whether they have had any experience fixing electric powered hot water systems or non-gas powered systems. It might also be worth checking whether the plumber is a member of The Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering Association. This association only allows experienced and 100% qualified planners and engineers to join. If they are a member of the IPHE, rest assured you should have confidence that they will perform the Water Heater repair professionally.

Master Plumber
it is always a good idea to get a number of plumbers to come to your property and give you a quote for your Water Heater repair. This way you can meet them in person, which will give you a gut feel whether you trust them or not and their level of customer service and professionalism. You can also compare the costs that each Texas Water Heater repair company gives you.

Remember though, the cheapest does not always necessarily mean the best (nor does the most expensive quote).

Ask the Water Heater repair engineer to break down costs, giving you a greater understanding of the work that needs to be undertaken.

Also make sure that the Texas Water Heater engineer, has worked with the manufacturer of your Water Heater previously. In most cases, a manufacturer also has their preferred Texas Water Heater service engineers, and it might be worth calling their head office see who they may recommend.
