Common Water Heater Issues
If you notice water pooling around the base of your water heater, contact us right away. A leak likely indicates a problem with the tank, valves, or connections that requires prompt repair. Our technicians can pinpoint the source of the leak and recommend the best fix, whether it's a simple part replacement or full water heater replacement. We'll take care of the issue before it leads to water damage or mold growth in your home.
A lack of hot water is often caused by a faulty heating element, thermostat, or gas control valve. Our plumbers have the parts on hand to get your water heater heating again. We can determine if your current unit just needs a minor repair or if replacement is the better option. Either way, we'll restore hot water to your home as quickly as possible.
Clanging, rumbling, or popping sounds from your water heater are warning signs of internal failure. Our techs can diagnose what's causing the noise and perform the necessary repairs. Whether it's sediment buildup, a faulty component, or a more serious issue, we have the skills to quiet your noisy water heater. Prevent further damage by calling us as soon as you hear strange noises.
Rust-colored water usually indicates corroded internal components. Age, mineral deposits, and high water pressure can cause corrosion inside the tank. Our plumbers can inspect your water heater and recommend solutions to filter out rust particles, flush the tank, replace damaged parts, or install a new water heater if needed. Don't wait until the rust causes a leak to call us.
An inefficient water heater can drive up your energy bills each month. We can inspect your current unit for problems that reduce efficiency, like faulty heating elements or leaky valves. In many cases, replacing an old water heater with a new energy-efficient model will pay for itself in energy savings within a few years. Let us advise you if replacement makes financial sense.
