Warm Baths With Yeobuild Water Heater Repair Services in Singapore

Say goodbye to cold baths with our expert water heater repair services in Singapore! Our skilled professionals at Yeobuild specialise in addressing water heater issues, offering expert installation and repair services to ensure your water heater functions optimally. 

Types of Water Heaters Available in Singapore

There are primarily two types of water heaters in Singapore: Storage heater tanks and instant water heaters. 

Storage Water Heater

Storage Water Heaters

Storage water heaters have a distinctive feature – they come equipped with a tank designed to store water. This water is then heated and dispensed when required.

Instant Water Heater

Instant Water Heaters

Instant water heaters, also known as tankless water heaters, heat water immediately without the need for storage – they provide heat water on demand.

Common Water Heater Issues Yeobuild Can Repair

The temperature and pressure valve controls the pressure buildup in the water tank. A faulty valve may cause damage to the tank or major leakages.

Contact our technicians to have this particular component repaired or replaced. 

Turn on the cold water to identify the problem’s source. If there’s sufficient flow, turn off the cold water and check the hot water. Low pressure in the hot water indicates a potentially partially closed valve. 

For persistent low pressure, our experts at Yeobuild can identify and address obstructions or silt buildup within or outside your home’s pipes, ensuring an effective solution to restore optimal water pressure.

Address leaks quickly by tightening loose connections with a wrench. Should the problem persist, our experts are ready to replace faulty valves promptly. If the tank is rusted and causing the leak, replacement is essential. 

Rely on Yeobuild handyman services for efficient solutions in fixing and replacing your fixtures.

Leaks may stem from corroded tanks or loosened heating elements. Check for element slackness and tighten using an element wrench if needed. 

However, a rusted tank is irreparable and must be replaced – call our technicians for help

Start by checking the drain valve, located at the appliance’s bottom and resembling an outdoor spigot. If the leak originates from the valve, inspect the surrounding areas to confirm the source. 

Yeobuild can assist in identifying and resolving issues related to hot water tank leaks for a reliable solution.

Adjusting the thermostat to a lower setting could resolve the problem. If that doesn’t work, inspect the temperature valve. A broken valve can prevent the heater from turning off even at the correct temperature. 

It’s crucial to replace the valve promptly to avoid potential hazards. 

If you have an electric water heater and notice water dripping from the tank’s side, a worn gasket may be to blame. Water is heated inside the tank of an electric water heater using heating elements. Water may occasionally seep out of the tank through a worn-out rubber gasket on the bottom of the heating element.

Call Yeobuild technicians and we will conduct repair works promptly to prevent further leakage. 

Types of Water Heaters Yeobuild Can Install and Repair

conventional water heater

Conventional water heaters feature a tank that stores and heats water, commonly used in households. They operate by maintaining a preset temperature, providing a steady supply of hot water but with limited storage capacity.

tankless water heater

Tankless water heaters, or on-demand water heaters, heat water directly without the need for a storage tank. They offer energy efficiency by only heating water when needed, providing a continuous and instantaneous supply of hot water.

heat pump

Heat pump water heaters utilise electricity to move heat from the air or ground to heat water. They are energy-efficient options, particularly in moderate climates, as they leverage ambient heat to warm the water.

solar water heater

Solar water heaters harness energy from the sun to heat water. They consist of solar panels that absorb sunlight and transfer the heat to a fluid, which then heats the water. This eco-friendly option is ideal for sunny Singapore.

condensing water heater

Condensing water heaters maximise efficiency by capturing and utilising the heat from combustion gases. They extract additional heat from these gases, allowing them to achieve higher energy efficiency compared to traditional water heaters.

Factors to Consider When Choosing A Water Heater

Type of Water Heater

As previously discussed, various water heaters offer distinct capabilities, yet the key decision often revolves around choosing between a storage water heater or an instant water heater. 

Cost

When it comes to installation, storage heaters are usually cheaper to install. However, instant heaters are more energy efficient, which would help to save on utility bills. 

Whether you are getting a storage or instant heater, it is important to check the warranty period and coverage provided by each brand. Storage heaters tend to have a longer warranty period for its parts.

Energy Consumption

Energy consumption is a crucial factor to consider, especially for those mindful of utility bills and operating on a budget. Opting for water heaters with higher energy efficiency is advisable, as they utilise less energy to achieve the same output, contributing to cost savings in the long run.

Life Cycles and Maintenance

On average, instant heaters typically last 10 to 15 years, while storage heater tanks have a lifespan of 8 to 13 years. Our professional plumbers recommend checking and maintaining instant heaters every 3 to 5 years and storage heater tanks every 5 years for optimal performance and longevity.

Installation Location

Consider your place of residence when deciding between instant and storage water heaters. For instance, in an HDB flat, an instant water heater is often preferred for its compact size, taking up less space compared to the larger and bulkier storage heater tank.

My home microwave (Turbo Incanto) broke down and initially i was sceptical to call for a home repair service! Thankfully, I found a reliable microwave repair service in Yeobuild. Their technician, Mr Syafiq came down at the appointed day/time and gave sound advice on the job scope after checking my microwave (heating system failed). Initial $60 fee was waived and all-inclusive $190 fee paid for repairs, transport, delivery, installation, spare parts, etc. No hidden charges and fees are transparent as quoted by Mr Syafiq. Job completed in 3 days with Invoice (cash payment) and Job Report emailed to me promptly. Thank you for the excellent service. Highly Recommended.

I've used yeobuild three times - for my wine fridge, washing machine and oven. All three times, the items were repaired professionally and in a timely manner. No idea if it is good value as I didn't compare prices, but I appreciate the prompt appointments, straightforward price quotes and follow ups. Will continue to use them and recommend to friends.

UPDATED post follow up: Service team returned call and fixed an appointment readily for next day as promised. Both fans are in good working condition 🙏🏻 Hope that YeoBuild can be impeccable in all aspects going forward, not solely zoomed in just for new accounts. Will return for other repairs and services if need to! Initial appointment was set up fast but received many calls for new slot allocation to fix on 1. Handyman is good and professional, mentioned that for follow up of capacitor replacement, the team will be in touch soon once we make payment for the new units. The ones he has did not fit ours hence the follow up appointment is required. Right after the first trip, email summary and invoice came for follow up. But no one reached out to give status nor make appointment for the expected service for replacement. Its been 2-3 weeks. I called once and they mentioned will check exact and lmk, still no updates so far.

FAQs about Water Heater Repairs in Singapore

The life expectancy of a water heater in Singapore can vary based on factors like usage, maintenance, and the type of water heater. On average, conventional water heaters may last 8 to 15 years, while tankless heaters tend to have a lifespan of 10 to 20 years.

Consider replacing your water heater if it’s over 10 years old, showing signs of frequent issues, or if you notice a decline in efficiency. Rust, leaks, or unusual noises are indicators that replacement might be more cost-effective than continual repairs.

Schedule your appointment with Yeobuild, and let our technicians assess your situation, providing expert advice on your next steps.

The decision to repair a hot water heater depends on the extent of the issue, the age of the heater, and the cost of repairs versus replacement.

Contact our technicians and we can offer guidance to assist you in making a well-informed decision.
