Gas Water Heater Dealer In Sacramento

Most people are familiar with traditional tank-type water heaters. They’re in most homes across the US, and those big metal tanks are visible in laundry rooms and basements in basically every part of the country. Gas water heaters use a burner that’s at the bottom of the unit to heat water stored in a tank, and they vent up through the roof that runs up the center of the unit.

At Water Heater Pros, we can not only handle the installation and any repairs or replacements that your gas water might need, but we’re also one of the largest suppliers of gas water heaters in the Sacramento areas, and we carry several different brands and models.


How Gas Water Heaters Work

Even though there are mostly newer types of water heaters available, the most popular in the United States remains the old reliable traditional tank-type water heater, basically, a tank filled with water that’s equipped with a heating mechanism. These machines exploit the fact that heat rises so that they’re able to deliver hot water when you need it in your Sacramento home with a minimal amount of fuss. They may appear ordinary on the outside, but water heaters have a brilliant design.

There are several smaller parts of your gas water heater that all need to be working together in order for it to properly function:

  • Dip tubes

  • Shut-off valve

  • Vent flue pipe

  • Thermostat

  • Heating mechanism

  • Drain valve

  • Pressure relief valve

  • Sacrificial anode rod


All of these smaller parts play a crucial role in the functioning and efficiency of your gas water heater. That’s why things like water heater tune-ups are so important. During a tune-up, our technicians make sure that each of these small parts is pulling their weight on the team.

Gas Water Heater Repair

Your Sacramento home relies on hot water at all times—without it, your daily life is interrupted in major ways.

There are several problems that you can encounter with a hot water heater, including:

  • No hot water

  • Inadequate heating

  • Rust colored water

  • Odorous water

  • Strange noises coming from your water heater, including popping or high pitched whining

  • Water leaking around the base of the water heater

If you encounter any of these problems, call one of the professionals at Water Heater Pros immediately. The solution could be simple, or it could be time to replace your gas water heater. No matter what, our professionals will be able to determine the exact cause of the problems and tackle them at their source.
