4 Signs You Need WATER HEATER REPAIR Services

Unlike other appliances in your household, the water heater tends to get used every day, especially when handling important tasks such as cooking, taking a bath, washing the dishes, and doing the laundry. That’s why it’s important to recognize the signs you need water heater repair services, so you can get any issue fixed before you get left out in the cold.

Possible Reasons Why Your Water Heater Isn’t Working

Your water may start to malfunction for many reasons, from a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker to a faulty thermostat. Having a blown-out pilot light or any loose parts may also keep your water heater from running efficiently.

4 Signs You Need Water Heater Repair:

1. You have a low supply of hot water

When you don’t have enough hot water for getting things done, it’s a telltale sign that you might need the help of a professional plumber to take care of the issue.

 

Your water heater produces less and less hot water as it ages. Sediment build-up inside your tank can also negatively impact the amount of hot water it produces.
It’s also possible that your water heater is too small to take care of the needs of the household.

2. It’s leaking

Your water heater may be leaking due to a number of reasons. But in general, leaks should be taken seriously.

 

The location of the leak should tell the plumber what’s causing it. Water heaters may leak due to old age, sediment collection, drain valves that need tightening, or leaks inside the tank, among other reasons.

 

Usually, preventive maintenance is recommended to ensure your water heater is running as smoothly and as efficiently as possible.

3. You notice smelly, discolored water

Does your water heater smell like rotten eggs? If you notice a sewer smell that’s emanating from your water heater when you use it, it may be due to a significant amount of bacteria in the water supply, or a corroded magnesium/ aluminum anode rod.

 

You will need to get a professional to flush and disinfect your tank to eliminate the offensive smell.

4. There are odd sounds coming from the water heater

When your water heater’s making gurgling noises, it’s often due to rust, sediment, and mineral buildup in the tank.

 

Excess sediment buildup may also cause your water heater to make banging and rumbling sounds. If this is the case, you may have to clean and drain your water tank.

 

Screeching sounds, however, may indicate that there are loose valves that need to be adjusted. You may adjust them on your own, or you can call a technician.
