Common Water Heater Problems
You can experience several issues when it comes to your water heater. Here are the most common ones.
- No hot water or not enough hot water
- Low temperature
- Yellow or rust-colored water
- Water reheats too slowly
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
Do any of these sound familiar? Before calling At Your Service Water Heaters right away, you can try to troubleshoot the problem. If the water isn’t hot enough, check the thermostat on your tank first, to ensure it’s set properly. If you have no hot water, check your tank’s power sources. For electric heaters you should see if the breaker is tripped; for gas heaters check the fuel line. If your gas heater has a pilot light, make sure it’s still lit.
Replacement Water Heaters & Repair
What causes these water heater problems? They’re usually due to one of the following things.
- Heating element malfunctioning
- Tank corrosion
- Leaky water
- Rusted tank
- Faulty plumbing
- Mismatched water lines
If your water heater issues are due to one of the above and you’re unable to resolve the problem after troubleshooting, it might be time to contact professionals. If your water is not hot, you have leaking around the tank, or you notice rust around the bottom of the tank, contact us right away. These are usually big tip-offs that something’s wrong and you need water heater service.
Other things to watch for that would require professional intervention are a fuel-like odor, smelly or colored water, and loud noises in the tank.
Water Heater Maintenance
Keeping up regular maintenance on your water heater can prevent future problems. Sometimes you may have to flush the sediment that gathers at the bottom of the tank. The water-heating process causes minerals to build up and settle in the tank, which leads to heating problems, colored water, or leaking.
By flushing sediment out regularly – once a year – you can keep your water heater running properly. At Your Service Water Heaters can handle this routine maintenance for you, along with other services like checking that the temperature pressure valve works adequately.
Water Heater Installation & Replacement
As specialists in hot water service, we can install and replace your water heater, guaranteeing a job done right. Water heaters can typically last several years. But if you experience issues, you might have to replace yours sooner. One of the primary reasons to replace a water heater before its natural life-span is if the unit itself starts leaking.
For water heater replacement, you should consider several things. First, what will the power source be, gas or electric? Are you going to replace your heater with another tank, or go tankless? Did your previous heater have a large enough capacity to service your entire house, or should you upgrade? These are important questions to ask when replacing or installing a water heater. We can advise you on the best solution, based on your needs.
