“Excellent service, and friendly professional techs. Our water heater died and needed to be replaced. We had a heat pump model installed, and Barnett installed a loaner unit at no cost while we waited for the electrician to make the necessary updates. They’re great, we’ll definitely work with them again when we need to.”

Our team is fully equipped and prepared to repair virtually any kind of water heater, from any major manufacturer. That includes gas water heaters, electric water heaters, and tankless water heaters. While most water heaters we see in the Tri-Valley area are 40 gallons, we can also service smaller point-of-use heaters, significantly larger capacity water heaters, and even commercial water heaters.

Water heaters that are less than 5 years old and are experiencing issues lighting or remaining lit are typically still under parts warranty and have the possibility of being repaired. This repair process begins with diagnosis and can requires several repair steps to identify the root issue. Bradford White replacement parts can be obtained same day, while other brands will usually warranty out replacement parts one at a time and take 3-5 business days to arrive.

Call today for your water heater repair needs and let one of our trained technicians begin the diagnosis process. Your plumber will be able to not only determine the source of any current issues with your water heater, but also spot any upcoming issues before they develop into actual problems. That’s the Barnett Plumbing difference.

Hybrid Water Heaters

Hybrid water heaters are the newest development in water heater technology, and they’re one of the biggest leaps forward since the tankless water heater.

Hybrid water heaters combine the best parts of a standard tanked water heater with the efficiency of a heat pump system, making them 2-4 times more efficient than either electric or gas powered water heaters.

California also offers generous rebates for new installations, which means they typically cost about the same as a standard water heater to install, but significantly less to run.
