Hot water is a household amenity that we all take for granted. When we turn on the shower, go to wash our hands or ready to do the dishes, we expect to turn the faucet and have hot water coming through the sink or shower head on demand. Unfortunately, hot water heaters tend to be a problematic appliance, usually only lasting anywhere from eight to 12 years before replacement is necessary. And oftentimes, hot water issues can occur suddenly. If you’re having issues with your hot water heater, we won’t make you wait. We offer 24/7 service and same-day water heater repair.
Common Water Heater Issues
Like we said, water heaters tend to be problematic appliances. Here’s a look at some signs that your water heater may need to be serviced or replaced:
- Lack of adequate hot water.
- A leaking hot water tank.
- Abnormal smell when you turn on the hot water.
- Damaged valves.
- Odd sounds coming from the hot water tank.
- A pilot light that won’t stay lit.
- Improper exterior venting.
- The age of the water heater.
Maintaining a Water Heater
While we’re happy to respond to water heater issues, we’ll also perform routine maintenance on these appliances. Regular maintenance can help a hot water heater run better for longer. Our maintenance includes flushing the water heater to remove any sediment or debris that is accumulating at the bottom of the tank. We’ll also give the appliance a thorough inspection and make any adjustments or repairs that are needed to ensure it’s running well and meeting hot water demands. Routine maintenance can also help give you a better idea of when the heater will need to be replaced, so you can plan and budget accordingly and won’t be hit with a sudden surprise.
