Residential and Commercial Solar Water Heater Maintenance, Repair & Installation
If you need maintenance or repair services for your home’s standard, tankless, or solar water heater? At Dxb Solutions LLC, we offer installation, troubleshooting and maintenance services for solar water heaters in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and other areas.
Common Problems for Residential Heating Units Electric and gas-fueled residential water heaters both use an insulated steel storage jacket that reduces heat loss in the water. However, electric gas heaters use an upper and lower heating element instead of a gas burner.

The solar water heaters from Dxb Solutions are manufactured with durable materials and should generate reliable heat in your home for many years. However, some water heating units will wear down and become less reliable over time.
Your solar water heater may need service or repair if:
If your solar water heater is not producing hot water, there are a few possible causes. The circuit breaker may be tripped, the thermostat could be malfunctioning, or the upper heating element may be faulty.
When a solar water heater is generating some hot water but not quite enough of it, your water heating unit might be too small for how much heat your space requires. Another cause may be faulty plumbing or a defective lower heating element.
If the water temperature is too hot, the first thing to check is whether the thermostat is set too high. Alternatively, the water in your home may have a high mineral content which can cause corrosion in a water heater. Corrosion may also cause your water to have a strange color or smell.
Water leaks can be caused by a poor plumbing connection or leaking valves. If you notice water leaks, shut off the water supply and the electrical power to your water heater.
You may notice strange noises coming from your solar water heater. If this is the case, it could be because the water is boiling. When sediment builds up at the bottom of the tank, it may lead to overheating which can cause the water to boil.
When to Call an Expert If you are not able to troubleshoot or fix the problem, don’t hesitate to call an expert. Some malfunctions will require professional service even if you were able to determine the cause.
If you are out of hot water, or if your hot water heater is leaking, call us. In many cases we will be able to get a member of our repair team to you on the same day. If the situation requires installation of a new water heater, this can usually be accomplished the following day. We always have 24 hour emergency service available.

Residential Water Heater Cleaning & Maintenance
The best way to prevent the water heater in your home from malfunctioning is with regular cleaning and maintenance. A properly maintained water heater can generate hot water for over 15 years.
Be sure to keep your thermostat at a steady temperature. This will save you money and prevent the risk of scalding. It’s also a good idea to insulate your pipes with foam piping that matches the diameter of the pipes. In addition, you may choose to insulate the heater with a foil insulating blanket.
If your residential water heater has a storage tank, it is recommended to drain about a quarter of the water a few times each year. Once a year, test the temperature pressure relief valve. This will remove debris and prevent sediment from building up. About every three years you’ll want to check the sacrificial anode rod for calcium buildup or exposed core steel wires.
