hot water heater installationWater Heater Repair, Service and Installation

Most traditional water heaters have a life expectancy of about 8-10 years. Life expectancy can vary depending upon local water chemistry, use, operating temperatures, and maintenance. Here are some signs you should contact a Kobella professional plumber to inspect your water heater:

  • If you have no hot water or not enough hot water (cold showers!)
  • If you notice an odor that smells like rotten eggs
  • If you hear noises like whining, rumbling, or popping
  • If you see puddles of water by the base of your heater

There are also more serious causes of water heater failure that a plumber will more easily be able to identify for you, including:

  • Corrosion
  • Poor installation
  • Loose connections
  • Defective thermostat
  • Hard or acidic water

Your water heater may just need a simple repair, like tightening a fitting, replacing a worn out pressure relief valve, or adjusting the temperature. Kobella expert plumbers will make speedy repairs as necessary, and will offer you options when repairs are not possible or not in your best interest.

Hot Water Heater Installation

We can repair your current water heater or install a newer, more efficient system for you. Should you decide on a water heater replacement, Kobella plumbing professionals can guide you through a discussion about the possible solutions.

There are many options available in the world of water heaters – having improved drastically over the years, today’s modern models have many benefits. We offer gas water heater replacement, electric water heater replacement, and tankless water heater replacement.

Kobella plumbing professionals can also guide you through a discussion about solutions like extra recovery models, high input models, and high performance models, all of which provide more hot water than conventional models. Conventional tank water heaters provide you with greater energy efficiency and reduced water consumption. Tankless water heaters may allow a reduction in both water use and energy costs.

Water heater complexity varies with the type and size of your home and your hot water needs. There are many factors for you to consider when selecting a water heater replacement regarding sizing, output, and capacity:

  • Demand peaks
  • Growing families
  • Addition of plumbing fixtures (renovations/home additions)
  • Multiple draws
  • Natural gas, propane, electric

Tankless Water Heater Installation

A tankless water heater does not store hot water, but rather heats cold water only when you turn on the hot water faucet; tankless water heaters as also known as “on-demand” heaters.

Tankless water heaters have some advantages, including:

  • Up to 25% reduction in heating costs
  • Unlimited supply of hot water
  • Unit does not take up much space
  • Longer lifespan than traditional water heater

Extremely pleased with Kobella plumbing--arrived early, very professional and knowledgeable. Fixed my water pressure, snaked out my drain, put in a new toilet, added valves in every bathroom, fixed/changed out pipes under my sink and provided helpful information along the way. Highly recommend if you're looking for quality service from trustworthy professionals!

I highly recommend. Professional, experienced and prompt. I had a large project, both inside and outside the home. The owner, Mike Kobella was very good with communicating details and remaining in contact by phone, text and email. I contacted Mike by text while he was away on vacation (and I was reluctant to do so, but needed to update him on County waterline work)...he was great and responded almost immediately.

We woke up without water pressure/no water. I called well before 8:00 in the morning, expecting voice mail or an answering service. I talked to Lisa in their office, who had Tim out here before 8:30. He replaced the pressure tank and determined the well pump was also dead. They gave us a recommendation for a company who did a great job. Kobella did excellent work for us! Between their responsiveness, professionalism, and excellent referral, we got water back in a pretty short period of time. We are very happy with Kobella and will use them in the future.

Sure, everyone's home A/C goes out on one of the hottest days of the year, and ours was no exception! So Monday afternoon called to see if they could come out as soon as possible (yes, I know I was asking a lot!). Lisa, who handles the calls, said they were slammed, but she would try to move non immediate action appointments around, and get me in. 5 minutes later she called back and said she could have someone here on Tuesday, before Noon! No way I thought, and Yes way they did!! Crew showed up at 10:30 and jumped right in. Found the problem, which was something that was on going, unbeknownst to me. Set up a plan of attack and got to work! Less than 2 hrs later, the house is starting to cool. Anthony and his partner were tremendous! Pointed out to me the problem, gave me my options and went right at it. Could not be more pleased! Since my former HACV guy retired and Kobella took over the account, I've need them twice and HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to all households in Lake and Geauga counties!!

From the service over the phone to fit us the service in my home to retrieve Oscar the Grouch, Kobella was a great find for my family and we will be consistently using them for any plumbing or HVAC services in the future.
