Need a Repair or Replacement? Call (808) 278-9599!

Your water heater is perhaps the single most-used appliance in your home. Without thinking all that much about it, you utilize your water heater each and every day when you bathe, when you turn on the warm water in one of your sinks, or when you use an electric washer or dishwasher. However, your water heater is also one of the most vulnerable appliances in your home, and the average tank-style water heater has an expected useful lifespan of only eight to ten years before you should consider replacing it. Whether your water heater needs to be repaired or the time has come for a full replacement, you shouldn’t hesitate to get help from a professional Big Island water heater specialist, like those from the team at Steve’s Plumbing & A/C Service!

Steve’s Plumbing & A/C Service understands water heaters inside and out. Every member of our team regularly undergoes extensive training in order to learn more about these appliances and how to service them better for you. We service all makes and models, ensuring you can call us for all of your water heater related needs, including both repairs and new installations. Every year, home and business owners make the mistake of hiring an inferior plumber to do this job or make the poor decision to attempt to DIY their water heater service needs. We have not only fixed these botched repairs, but we have completed fixes of all different shapes and sizes.

    Your Plumbing & AC Dream Team

    Audie was the representative from Steves Plumbing that came to our house. He was very professional and had a warm friendly demeanor. Audie was able to quickly diagnose the problem. He took his time to explain the situation, what needed to be done with our shower valve and explained everything in a way that we can easily understand it. He also noticed the brands on our fixtures in our bathroom (toilet, sink) and gave recommendations on what he believed would be more durable. We believed this is going above and beyond his duty. If we ever have any plumbing needs in the future, we will definitely call Steves Plumbing and specifically ask for Audie.

    One of the best plumbing experiences I’ve ever had. Prompt service. Very knowledgeable tech. Kaalai was super nice and repaired our leak in a professional manner. I would recommend Steve’s Plumbing to all my friends and neighbors.

    – Hunt D.

    We have been a customer for almost 20 years. They do good, professional work with aloha. Response time has always been excellent. Today I broke a water pipe and they responded immediately. They sent VICTOR, who we HIGHLY RECOMMEND! WE WILL ALWAYS USE STEVE’S PLUMBING!

    – Diana M.

    I called Steve’s Plumbing on a Sunday morning and the service guy was here before noon without charging extra for Sunday! Billy fixed my clogged sink and spent over 3 hours clearing the clog that was way down the pipe. He was professional and explained everything to me. The price was reasonable considering all the work he did. I was very happy with the results.

    – Susie C.

    Victor overhauled our main property water shut off the box. A lot of corroded handles/valves that were not an easy DIY project. The office gave courtesy calls before he arrived on time. He was very patient in answering all of my many questions and concerns. Explained options to me & also introduced me to the “Ohana Membership” (be sure to get it). Upon completion, he was very thorough in showing me “what did what”. No more confusion or concerns. He even took time to answer other questions I had about a different “project”. He really takes pride in his work & it shows. Mahalo!

    Water Heater Replacements

    Water Heater Replacements

    As stated previously, water heaters generally have an expected lifespan of only around a decade, and often even less. With all of the wear and tear these systems face on a daily basis plus the stress of constantly shifting temperatures from draining and refilling, it’s easy to see how water heaters will eventually fall apart. When they do, they spring a leak, and a leaking water heater can damage your home, cause injuries to your loved ones, and ruin your valuable possessions. Thus, we often recommend having your water heater replaced at the first sign of a leaking tank.

    Here are a few signs that you might want to consider replacing your water heater:

    • Your utility costs are far higher than usual without any explanation
    • Your water heater has needed several repairs recently
    • Your warranty is no longer valid
    • You’re struggling with inconsistent temperatures
    • Your water has rust colors or metallic smells to it
    • Your water heater is more than 10 years old

    Contrary to popular belief, there is no black and white approach to installing a water heater. Every water heater setup and every plumbing system is unique, and that uniqueness is what makes professional training invaluable. Those who don’t have the training and know-how to handle the minor details of a water heater installation often make mistakes, and those mistakes could be costly both in the short and long term. If you’re searching for a professional to address your need for a water heater replacement, Steve’s Plumbing & A/C Service is the team that can handle the job.

    Water Heater Repair

    The secret to keeping your water heater in good repair and working for as long as possible is to stay current with your maintenance and repairs when they arise so that the issues don’t build up into potentially catastrophic failures. Whether you’re dealing with a faulty ignitor, a pilot light that frequently goes out, or a simple electrical problem that’s preventing your water heater from working properly, you can count on Steve’s Plumbing & A/C Service to fix the problem.

    We fix all types of issues, including:

    • Lukewarm water
    • Cold water (total lack of any warm water at all)
    • Strange noises or smells coming from your heater
    • Metallic odor or rusty colors in your water
    • Rusty or otherwise discolored water

    Steve’s Plumbing & A/C Service will get to the bottom of your problem and provide you with a fix that ensures your water heater continues to operate optimally. We offer highly-trained repair work using the latest parts and modern tools to ensure a long-lasting solution. Plus, we offer upfront pricing so there are no surprises on the final bill once the job is complete. We’re even available 24/7 for emergencies, and we never charge any overtime fees to ensure you receive the same low rate. We don’t believe anybody should be punished for having emergency service needs.
