Signs of a Water Heater Problem

Often, homeowners do not call for service until there is no hot water at all. There are usually signs pointing to a problem before the hot water stops completely. Identifying these signs could help homeowners get the water heater repair service they need before the heater has completely quit working. These signs can include:

Hot Water Running Out

Hot water tanks vary in size to accommodate the needs of different sizes of homes and families. These tanks keep the water hot so that the right amount of hot water is available whenever it is needed. If it seems that the hot water is running out before normal tasks are completed, there may be a problem.

If there have been changes in the home immediately before the hot water started running out, it may mean that the tank is not large enough to accommodated everyone. This may require a larger water heater installed in the home. If there have been no changes in the home or the use of the hot water, and the hot water is still running out, it may be a malfunction in the unit itself. A water heater utilizes heating elements to heat the water and keep it warm. If one or more of those heating elements have failed, it can be hard to keep the water hot. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling can repair this issue to get the hot water back.

Fluctuating Temperatures

If it seems the hot water in the home does not have a consistent temperature, there may be a problem with the water heater. Fluctuating temperatures between hot and lukewarm could be a problem with the thermostat or even the heating elements. Professional repair services can help get the water heater back to functioning normally.

Popping Noises 

Water heaters typically make some noises as they turn on or heat the water. New or louder noises could be a sign of a problem. Most water coming into a home contains some minerals. As the water sits in the tank and is heated, these minerals can settle in the tank. They build up and can make popping, banging, or even crackling noises as they heat up.

In general, a little bit of sediment from the water in the tank is not a problem. But once it’s built up, it can cause damage to the tank. It can also make it more difficult for the water heater to properly heat the water. Summers Plumbing Heating & Cooling can identify the cause of the noise and drain the tank to remove the sediment when necessary.

Discolored Water

Over the years, sediment can accumulate in the water heater tank. It can even corrode the tank. This sediment or even the rust from the inside of the tank can discolor the water. Contacting a professional can help identify the problem and provide a solution to getting the water back to clear.

Leaking Water Heater

Corrosion in or around the water heater tank can eventually eat through the entire unit. When this occurs, leaks will be noticeable. Homeowners can identify early leaks by dampness under or around the water heater. In these cases, the water heater will most likely need to be replaced.

When to Replace 

It can be difficult to know when a water heater needs to be repaired or replaced. Our technicians will provide repairs for any unit when it is possible. However, there are times when a unit that can be repaired should just be replaced. This can include when the repairs will cost more than the unit or if the unit is more than ten years old. Although the final decision is up to the homeowner, sometimes replacement may be the better option.
