American Plumbing Heating Cooling offers professional water heater service, water heater repair, water heater upgrades, and water heater replacements in the cities of Harrisonburg, Waynesboro, and Staunton.  American PHC also services the counties of Rockingham and Augusta in the Central Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.  If your water isn't hot, if your hot water doesn't last long enough, if your water is too hot, or if your water heater is leaking then we have solutions for you.  If you're looking to upgrade from a storage tank water heater to a tankless water heater, we can help.  Heat pump water heaters are making an impression now too for more energy efficient water heating options.  We service gas water heaters and oil fired water heaters as too.


A common problem for homes in our area is hard water.  Hard water mineral deposits are trapped in the lower portion of your water heater and eventually insulate the lower heating element until it shorts out and leaves you with a limited supply of hot water.  On gas water heaters, sediment and mineral deposits can insulate the temperature sensor and overheat the water in your heater, leading to potentially dangerous scalds and burn injuries.  Water heaters that aren't flushed on a scheduled basis can have potentially very short lifespans.  If hard water is an issue with your water heater, we can help.  Our plumbing technicians will take a water sample from your home and have it professionally analyzed for total content and possible treatment solutions.  Typical homes can benefit from a simple, low maintenance water softener system to help prevent future stressful no hot water events.  Give us a call to schedule your water heater repair today.
