A broken water heater can disrupt your life in so many ways you probably don’t even think about it. Inconsistent temperatures cause issues like problems with laundry and damage to various fixtures. Faulty heating elements waste energy and thus needlessly drain money out of your pocket. Utility connection problems can be dangerous for your home, leading to water leaks that damage materials or gas leaks that can create a toxic atmosphere.
At Seiter Services, we have seen just about everything there is to see when it comes to water heater problems, and our ongoing experience and skill have prepared us to handle anything your water heater needs. We are proud to offer dependable and lasting water heater repair in Dayton for all makes and models (including gas and electric-powered units).
What Causes Water Heaters to Break?
Your water heater is unique to your home in that it is the only appliance that you use pretty much non-stop. Even when the tank is full and up to temperature, your water heater is working hard to both contain the water within the tank and keep it at the ideal temperature.
No heater is perfect when it comes to preventing heat from escaping, so it will always need to fire up again to bring the tank back to temperature after a while. This constant process of cycling, temperature fluctuations, and even the quality of your water will eventually cause components in your water heater to fail.
We provide water heater repair in Dayton for all types of problems, including:
- Thermostat problems
- Damaged heating elements
- Electrical connections
- Exhaust faults
- Excessive mineral deposits
- Excessive internal tank pressure
- Inconsistent temperatures
Sometimes simple age and wear and tear causes parts to fail. Other times external forces take their toll. No matter what has caused your water heater to stop producing the hot water you need, you can count on the team at Seiter Services to fix the issue quickly and professionally. Whether you have a newer heater or an older unit, we service all makes and models so you can trust your issue to us.

Should You Repair or Replace Your Water Heater?
