Trusted Hot Water Heater Company
When your hot water fails to deliver, you need a company you can count on for fast, effective repairs. But how do you know which water heater problem requires calling a pro? Here are the most common water heater issues you may encounter.
Some of the most common water heater issues you may encounter are:
Reduced Hot Water
One of the most common water heater problems is not getting the hot water you’re used to. This could be caused by overtaxing the system or an issue with the water heater itself. As water heaters age, sediment builds up in the tank, leading to reduced capacity or damage to the heating elements.
If you notice water pooling around your tanked water heater, it could be from normal condensation; however, it could be that the water heater tank is rusting and about to fail, especially if it’s over ten years old. Check the connections and the overflow pipe to see if one is the source of the water; if all appears normal, get in touch with a hot water heater service and ask about new hot water tank installation.
Not Hot Water
A typical electric water heater contains two heating elements, one at the bottom and one at the top. The most common reason you have no hot water is the circuit breaker has tripped. However, if the breaker is working, it’s probably one or both that have failed. A gas water heater will stop working if the pilot light goes out for any reason.
The Water is Too Hot
If the water is suddenly scalding, it’s likely a thermostat issue. Rapid water temperature changes typically happen when seasons change, and the thermostat needs adjusting. If re-setting the thermostat doesn’t solve the problem, call a plumber for help.
If you experience issues with your water heater and troubleshooting the problem yourself doesn’t help, call the expert plumbers at PlumbSure Plumbing & Drains.
When Should You Replace Your Water Heater
Most homeowners stick with the same water heater for years, only replacing it when the system fails. However, waiting until the last minute limits your options and forces you to make a purchase quickly without doing your research.
Here are a few reasons to consider water heater replacement before your unit’s time is up:
Avoid An Emergency
As mentioned, replacing your water heater when your system fails puts you in a position to make a hasty decision. If you plan for a water heater replacement, you can research options that give you better performance and efficiency, which can save you money. Also, finding a water heater in a pinch can be challenging, and you may find yourself going for a few days without a system and no hot water.
Avoid Water Damage
Some water heaters simply stop working; however, in other cases, they fail spectacularly, spilling water all over the place, which can cause water damage and mold growth. You can avoid this potential disaster by planning a water heater replacement when your system reaches a particular age.
It’s normal to want to hang on to an expensive appliance like a water heater for as long as possible. But, if your system requires increasingly costly repairs and maintenance to keep it going, it makes more financial sense to give up the repairs and spring for a new unit.
