How can we make such a bold guarantee?

 

  1. Warehouse on Wheels- Our trucks are rolling warehouses and even have two common water heaters right on board! This means that once a Team Austin plumber arrives to assess your water heater troubles, we won't have to leave your property until your hot water is restored.
  2. Two Locations- Water heaters are big and clunky and we may not have the right one on board when we arrive, which is why each of our brick-and-mortar locations (Hartland, WI and Germantown, WI) has support staff to deliver and assist with getting the old unit out of the house and the new unit in. Our shops are fully stocked with gas water heaters, electric water heaters, and power vent water heaters.

Water Heater Replacement FAQ's-

 

What is the best water heater brand?-

 

Great question! We install more water heaters than anyone else in our market, which means we get a pretty large sample size of what heaters are leaking and what age they are when they leak. We have not found any evidence that there is any brand that is "better" or lasts longer than others in this market. We have, however, found that there are some brands that offer much better support with technical assistance and local distribution, which is why it's been proven that the thing more important than the brand on the water heater is the company you choose to do business with. Find out more about why you should choose Austin Plumbing Company to install your new water heater.

 

What are some signs my water heater needs to be replaced?

 

A visual inspection of the water heater will be required before the ultimate call can be made that the heater needs to be replaced, although there are some warning signs that your water heater may be on its last legs. Other than the obvious water leaking around the base of the heater, other warning signs include running out of hot water, or the water heater making a rumbling noise.

 

Is an extended warranty worth it?

 

This depends. Since in most cases the water heater is the exact same whether it comes with a 6-year, 9-year or 12-year warranty, any money spent going from a 6-year heater to a 12-year heater warranty is much more like insurance than investing in a better product. Ultimately, you decide what is right for you and your family, but most clients decide they are better off installing a unit with a 6-year warranty and joining our maintenance program vs. spending a bunch of extra money on an extended warranty.

 

Will you install a water heater that I buy?

 

We sure will, but since we didn't supply the heater and it's not supported by professional plumbing distributors, we don't warranty or participate in the warranty in any way.

 

How long do water heaters last?

 

We have been installing water heaters in Waukesha and Washington County for over 80 years and have found that 6-10 years is about normal for a water heater. Of course, 40-50 years ago that number would be different. Many things other than manufacturing have contributed to the shorter life expectancy of water heaters such as water pressure, water quality, hot water expiation and hot water demands.
