Fantastic customer service, had an issue on a weekend where my furnace stopped functioning. I called Aquarius,, they were clear on limited risks and gave me a recommendation on what I could do (and how much I would save) by having a Monday appointment. I was also lucky the weather was warm. Mike came and checked my furnace and shared with me options, showed me pictures and a video and walked me through options to fix. He did not push me into any decisions, just presented options and asked my preference. I ended up deciding to get a new HVAC as the prior owners had not updated when an addition was put on the house.I had Aquarius and a few others bid on the job. Dan came over, asked questions, showed me what the new system would look like and helped me to understand my options good, better and best. I had a bid in less than 30 minutes and had 2 additional companies bid on similar systems. Aquarius was slightly more expensive, but the service and comfort I felt with them was worth the extra price and they included more options for me. Dan was available for calls, including one with my dad, who knows a lot more about HVAC than I do, to help ensure that I was comfortable with the work being done. My dad said 'these guys are going to do a great job' and I was able to schedule them to come in the next day for an install!Mick installed the Furnace and Jeff installed the AC, they were on time, helpful and did great work. The new system is game changing, I didn't realize how bad my heat disbursed previously. I left them alone for the day to do their work and the look of the new system was awesome.Lastly, when I arrived home Travis was here to walk me through the system and talk next steps, assuring me that they took care of submitting for all the rebates and registered the products on my behalf. He walked me through the set up, maintenance and recommendations for how to use effectively. He stayed to answer all my questions and sent me pictures of all the work that was done. The next morning Sarah emailed me with all the rebate info and shared with me what to expectI had one minor hiccup with a gas fireplace not working post install, I called them and they came out the next day to fix it. And the issue was that the pilot light went out. Jeff came out and fixed in 2 minutes, had I looked harder he probably didn't need to come out at all.Very glad I used this group and would call them in the future for any needs.

My family and I use Aquarius for just about everything. We had our furnace, ac and water heater all installed and maintained by them. We also had our water filtration installed and maintained by them and most recently we had Bill and AJ out to install some puc lights and rewire/install our bathrooms light fixtures. They were friendly, courteous, professional, efficient and quick. Their swiftness ended up reducing the total cost of our project and was greatly appreciated. Highly recommend Bill, AJ and the whole Aquarius team. They continue to impress us and have earned our trust and continued business.02/21/24 update - had another great service visit. Nick S. Was our HVAC technician and was pleasant, friendly, prompt and efficient. On top of his other duties he was able to recommend a potential upgrade for our system and assisted with several other questions we had. As usual I highly recommend.

Water Heater Repair Minnesota

Even though modern water heaters have a lifespan of several years, issues can still occur. That’s why the Aquarius team of experts is available to repair or replace your home’s water heater if it isn’t delivering the hot water needed for your home to function properly or efficiently. 

Every home and family has differing hot water needs, our professional plumbers are trained to assess a home’s demand and recommend the best solution for your specific needs. 

Each of our highly qualified technicians has the training and experience needed to carry out whichever water heater services you are in need of quickly and properly, whether its a simple repair on your existing unit or a brand new water heater installation, we’ll have your water heater up and running as soon as possible.

Aquarius fixes everything with a smile

Our plumbing professionals work with every client to determine whether a water heater should be repaired or fully replaced. We provide every one of our clients with all the information needed to make an informed decision before we start work in your utility room. Your complete satisfaction is always our goal, and that starts with making the right choice when it comes to repairing or updating your home’s hot water heater.

How Long Should Water Heaters Last?

On average, water heaters work perfectly normal for at least ten years without significant issues developing, but their lifespan greatly depends on how well and how frequently they’re serviced, the mineral content in the water, condition of the water entering your house from either a well or municipal source, and the overall quality of the water heater. 

If you’re unsure of how old your home’s water heater is or whether it’s been properly serviced, take the time now to have the Aquarius team come out to evaluate the existing water heater and provide routine maintenance services as well as a comprehensive report on the status of your home’s water heater. 

Aquarius provides local and reliable services for any water heater repairs or replacement, whether you have a tankless water heater or a standard tank water heater.

What Problems are Common with Water Heaters in the Twin Cities?

The water in Minneapolis and Saint Paul tends to have a high mineral content that causes several issues with your home’s water-using appliances, including your water heater. Our technicians are knowledgeable of the issues found in different parts of the metro area and work with clients to determine how to resolve those problems. Here are just a few of the problems our clients routinely experience.

Gas Valve and Burner Issues

Any problem with the burner system needs to be addressed and repaired as quickly as possible, as there are safety issues as well as a lack of hot water to contend with and we know how horrible a cold shower can be.

Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve Problems

Water heaters are equipped with special valves to allow excess pressure to escape in a controlled and safe way. If a pressure relief valve fails, leaks can occur or pressure builds up in the tank. Both problems should be addressed quickly to avoid serious damage to the water heater or your home. Our technicians always check pressure relief valves during routine maintenance service calls to insure they are relieving excess pressure in a safe manner.

Thermostat Failure

When the thermostat on a water heater fails, homeowners commonly see water that’s too hot, not hot enough, and even cold. This type of repair is quite common and is quickly dealt with by our team of water heater experts.

Of course, other problems occur as well, and they might not all be a simple repair. Drain valves may need replacing, electric heating elements may fail, and tankless water heaters have their own unique maintenance and repair requirements. We’re always ready to address any type of water heater problem you experience.

Types of Water Heaters Our Team Members Work On

At one point, virtually all water heaters in the region included a storage tank with water heated by gas or electricity. Those heaters are still commonly used, but newer varieties of water heaters are now routinely recommended by plumbers, like tankless. Here are the types of water heaters the Aquarius team has experience installing and servicing.

  • Tank
  • Tankless Unit
  • Electric Tanks
  • Electric with Heat Pumps
  • Atmospheric Gas, Powervent

Many homeowners don’t know which type of water heater they have, which isn’t an issue. We’re always prepared to maintain, repair, or replace all types of water heaters used in Minneapolis, St. Paul, and the surrounding communities.

Brands Our Team Works On

Our plumbing professionals have undergone extensive training and routinely work on all water heater brands commonly seen in the Twin Cities area. These brands include:

When we visit your home for water heater maintenance and repairs, we’ll have the parts required to fix the most common water heater problems. That means your hot water supply can be restored quickly and your water heater will be providing hot water in no time.

When Should a Water Heater Be Replaced?

There is no single answer to that question, as there are several signs to consider when evaluating the need to replace a home’s water heater. Here are just a few indications that replacing a water heater should be considered.

The cost of repairs is too great.

In some cases, the combined costs of parts and labor will approach the cost of installing a brand new water heater. The Aquarius team will never recommend replacing a water heater if doing so is unnecessary, but we’ll certainly let you know when replacing a water heater would be prudent.

An existing water heater doesn’t provide enough hot water to efficiently support the residents of the home.

When your family members are constantly complaining because the hot water supply runs out, updating to a new water heater that delivers a more consistent supply of hot water is recommended. 

Investing in a tankless water heater will provide your home with instant and endless hot water. Our team will evaluate your family’s use and recommend appropriate solutions.

Too much water is wasted waiting for water to heat up and reach the intended area of the home.

In many homes, there is one water heater which supplies hot water to the entire home, and it’s often far from the kitchen or bathrooms. Adding a second water heater often makes sense when countless gallons of water are wasted before hot water even starts to flow or reaches its intended destination. We’ll work with homeowners to determine whether a second water heater is a good idea and determine where it should be located.

Since every home’s needs vary, the Aquarius team always works with clients to evaluate the needs of users and recommend different solutions. Whether that means switching to a different type of water heater or simply installing a larger, more efficient unit, we’re ready to meet your family’s hot water needs.
