When Your Water Heater Needs a Repair
When your hot water disappears, like in the scenario above, it’s pretty clear that you need to call a professional to get it working again. Unless you know how to repair a water heater, it’s going to take someone else who knows their stuff to get it working again. However, some water heater problems aren’t quite as obvious. Here are some signs that your water heater is struggling, even if it is technically still producing hot water.
- Your water heater is loud. For the most part, heating and distributing hot water is a quiet process. You may hear the gas running in your water heater or the water running through the pipes, but you shouldn’t hear any loud clangs, bangs, or other noises. If you hear these, it can mean that sediment has made its way into your water heater or that something has come loose. Either way, it’s time to call in a professional.
- Your hot water isn’t so hot. While your water heater is technically still working as long as your hot water is warmer than the surrounding air, you should be able to get really hot water if you want it. If you feel like your water heater isn’t heating as well as it should be or isn’t heating as well as it used to, the first thing to do is check the temperature setting on the heater itself. If it gets bumped, it can mean your water isn’t heating as much. If that’s fine, give us a call and we’ll figure out how to get your really hot water back again.
- Your hot water doesn’t last. Do you have to hop in and out of the shower fast in order to make sure you stay warm the whole time? Or do you have to rotate the appliances using hot water to make sure they all get what they need? These are signs that your water heater needs help.
