Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repairs
Your water heater usually goes about its business, producing hot water when you demand it. But, if it’s not working right, you won’t get the hot water you need and the problem could worsen. If your water heater is exhibiting any of the following, it’s a good idea to call for repairs:
No Hot Water
If you’re not getting any hot water from your gas water heater when you turn on the faucet, it could be a faulty pilot control valve or thermocouple. An electric water heater can experience issues with the heating element. Our technicians are highly skilled and able to repair both gas and electric water heaters quickly and correctly.
Not Enough Hot Water
If your water heater doesn’t seem to be producing the same level of hot water it once did, there may be a problem with the thermostat. Perhaps it’s simply not adjusted to a hot enough temperature. Or, the thermostat may be malfunctioning and in need of replacement. Either way, we’ll get the hot water flowing.
A Noisy Water Storage Tank
The Hot Water Smells Bad
If you detect an odor of rotten eggs or sulfur when you turn on the hot water, it’s cause for concern. The pungent smell of rotting eggs is a sure sign that there is a bacteria built up inside the water heater tank. We’ll safely remove the bacteria and flush your water heater so your family doesn’t suffer any ill effects.
Low Hot Water Pressure
Do you notice a significant difference in the amount of water pressure you get between hot and cold? It could be that your pipes are too small to handle a high volume of water. Other causes include sediment, calcium, or rust deposits inside the pipes. We’ll find the problem and make the necessary repairs to get your water flowing.
Leaking Hot Water Storage Tank
A hot water tank that leaks can cause damage to your home and the water heater. If the leak is coming from the top of the unit, it may be that the inlet or outlet connections are loose. A leak from the bottom of the tank could mean a failing electric heating element gasket. No matter the cause, we can make the problem go away.
When It’s Too Late for Hot Water Heater Repairs
Although many water heater issues can be repaired by a qualified water heater pro, not everything can be fixed. For example, if your water heater storage tank has a major leak, there’s no way to repair it and you’ll need to consider a new water heater. Another reason for water heater replacement is the age of your water heater. Generally, they last between 15 and 20 years, so if yours is nearing that age, talk to us about our water heater replacement and installation services.
