These guys are amazing. They arrived on-time, were polite/friendly, and finished quickly. Given the current state of things, they provided no contact service, work face masks, and gloves. Excellent service!
Very professional plumber group. Every step, from setting up an appointment, to the job itself was executed at 5 star levels. Install was thorough and the follow up after the job included a specific write up with many pictures to confirm findings. Best option in town.

I have had great luck with the plumbers sent to my home. Not only did Elvis m. and Frank M. take time to explain everything they, like the other people in your company were friendly and cooperative and worked fast and efficiently. Your workers are your strongest value to your company.

Yes, water heaters need to be serviced if you want them to operate more effectively and last longer. Water heater service can entail routine maintenance and/or professional repairs. Learn more about our Water Heater Maintenance Service.

How to service your water heater depends on the goal. Is it maintenance? You can handle some water heater maintenance on your own, for example draining the tank a few times a year to remove sediment and debris. A professional plumber can drain the tank for you too, as well as perform other routine water heater maintenance that can help prolong the life of the unit.

If your water heater is having problems, you should call a professional plumbing company like Boston Standard. What kind of problems?

  • No heat
  • Inconsistent heat
  • Low pressure
  • Leaks or pools of water around the base of the unit
  • Cracking, banging, or popping sounds

It’s a good idea to drain your water heater at least once a year. If you have hard water, you should drain it more often. Check the manufacturer recommendations.

Call a professional water heater service company if you’re having problems with your unit: no hot water, poor water pressure, or leaks around the base of the unit.

Having a service plan for your water heater can save you time and money because routine professional maintenance can help keep the unit operating effectively and efficiently. This can mean fewer emergency repairs and lower utility bills. Plus, some water heater service plans offer a discount on future maintenance and repairs.

Yes, a plumber is usually the professional you would call to fix your water heater. If your water isn’t heating quickly, smells oddly, or is rust colored, it’s a good idea to call in an expert plumber in Boston, MA.
