Signs of a Failing Water Heater

Hot water availability doesn’t always indicate a well-functioning water heater. Look out for these common signs that may indicate underlying problems:

  • Decreased hot water supply
  • Leaks
  • Random shutdowns
  • Standing water in the unit
  • Constant running
  • Increased energy bills

Common Causes Of Water Heater Problems

Water heater issues can stem from various factors, including:

  • Sediment buildup
  • Faulty temperature and pressure relief valve
  • Defective drain valve
  • Damaged tank
  • Sulfate bacteria buildup
  • Deteriorating anode rod
  • Loose pipe connections

Troubleshooting water heaters based on sounds can be challenging due to various potential reasons. Here are some common sounds and their associated issues:

  • Popping: Caused by hot water bubbling up through sediment at the tank’s bottom.
  • Crackling: Results from calcium buildup inside the tank.
  • Ticking: Occurs due to water pressure fluctuations or loose pipe straps connected to hot water lines.
  • Sizzling: Typically, water leaking onto a hot burner assembly is the cause.
  • Hammering/Knocking: Results from abrupt halts in water flow within water supply pipes.

From tightening pipe straps to replacing pressure valves, we have expert solutions for every situation.

Water Heater Maintenance

Routine inspections by a licensed plumber are essential for your water heater. Maintenance not only helps prevent emergencies but also maintains warranty validity and extends the unit’s lifespan.

Our water heater maintenance services include:

  • Regular hot water heater flushing
  • Part replacements
  • Multi-point inspections to check for cracks, leaks, and joint gaps
  • Anode rod examinations
  • Temperature and pressure valve safety checks

Flushing your hot water tank to remove sediment buildup is particularly beneficial as sediment shortens the unit’s lifespan and reduces efficiency.

Water Heater Inspections

Regular inspections are the most effective way to prevent water heater emergencies. Early detection of warning signs like corrosion and sediment buildup can facilitate effective treatment. Inspections also protect your home and family against carbon monoxide exposure. Carbon monoxide can leak when a gas water heater is improperly installed or vented. As an odorless gas, carbon monoxide can lead to stomach aches, chest pain, vomiting, mental fogginess, weakness, dizziness, headaches, and even death.

Benefits of Water Heater Maintenance :

  • Improved performance
  • Increased efficiency
  • Enhanced longevity
  • Reduced energy bills

Water Heater Repair FAQs

Should I repair or replace my water heater?

Generally, we recommend replacing your water heater if it’s over 10 years old or the cost of repairs is 50% or more of the cost of replacement. Upgrading to a modern water heater can provide several benefits, including unlimited hot water, compact sizes, reduced energy usage, increased reliability, and more.

What do water heater repairs cost?

The cost of water heater repairs can vary based on several factors, including the specific part(s) being fixed, the make and model of the water heater, its condition, the required labor and time for repairs.

Should I shower or use hot water if my water heater is leaking?

No, it’s not advisable to use hot water if your water heater is leaking. Using hot water when there’s a leak can exacerbate the issue, potentially leading to significant damage, breaker trips, mold, water damage, and even fire hazards. A leak can also indicate potentially dangerous structural problems.

How can I detect if my water heater is leaking?

Installing a leak alert and automatic shut-off system is the best way to detect leaks. This system connects a valve to the water line feed and a sensor in a pan near the drain tube. Any leak triggers a leak alert and simultaneously shuts off the water intake to minimize damage.
