Signs You Need Water Heater Repairs

Your water heater is pretty good at letting you know when something has gone awry. The best thing you can do is learn to identify these warning signs, and contact a professional immediately! A small problem can turn into a really big issue pretty quickly, so it’s best to get professional attention as soon as possible (unless you’re interested in a full replacement!)

  • Temperature troubles. If the water coming from your water heater is too hot, or not hot enough, odds are the temperature simply needs to be adjusted. This is done very simply with a dial on the face of your water heater. If that doesn’t fix your issue, it’s likely the element has gone out, which will necessitate some repairs from an expert.
  • Rusty water. Over time, scale will build up in the basin of your unit. This needs to be cleared on occasion (yearly, or every few years for a brand-new water heater), or the sediment will begin creating larger issues.
  • Leaky tank. If your water heater has begun to leak, you may have a problem on your hands that means more than a simple repair. But, caught early enough, repairs may be viable.
  • Odd sounds. This annoying wheeze, pop, bang or crackle is caused by the same issues as your rusty water (usually). The sediment in your tank will eventually make contact with your element, producing these worrying noises.
  • Odors or strange taste in water. This one you’ll take note of right off the bat, and either one is pretty bad news for your water heater.

Again, we stress that water heaters are extremely sensitive to adverse conditions. If you note an irregularity, contact us quickly! It could mean the difference between a repair or a replacement (we offer those, too, but we prefer it to be a voluntary action, rather than something that could have been avoided!).
