Signs You Have a Water Heater Problem
Many water heaters will let you know that there’s a problem before they stop working entirely. If you know what to look for, you can get some help for your ailing heater before your hot water stops running. Here are some things that many people see when their water heater needs repair.
- Lukewarm water. Sometimes, a water heater struggles to heat the water to the temperature you want it, so you may have warm water instead of hot. If this happens, check the temperature settings on your water heater before you call us. Sometimes, someone bumps the heater and changes the setting. In this case, the heater doesn’t need a repair at all. It just needs the settings put back to normal.
- Running out of hot water. If you used to be able to take a long shower while the dishwasher was running without running out of hot water, and you can’t anymore, there’s probably a problem with your water heater. It’s not making as much hot water as it used to, or there’s some sort of leak along the way. Don’t worry! We’ll figure out what has gone wrong so you can use your hot water the way you want to.
- Leaks around the heater. Sometimes, your water heater will spring a seal. This can result in a slow leak, leaving water pooled around the bottom of the water heater. If you see some water you can’t explain, give us a call. Sometimes, these leaks only let water out when the tanks inside are cool. This can be hard to diagnose but we know how to look.
- An odd noise. Your water heater should work silently. If it starts to make a lot of noise, particularly of the banging and clanging sort, something has gone wrong! Usually, this means that parts inside of your water heater are hitting against each other, which shouldn’t happen in normal functioning. We’ll figure out the issue and get everything working again.
