What to Do About Water Heater Problems
Chances are when your water heater is working well, you probably don’t even think about it. Yet when you wake up to that morning cold shower, you’re going to want to call for a repair ASAP. Fortunately, there are steps you can take to identify hot water heater problems sooner rather than later. As always, if there is an issue with your water heater, it’s a good idea to hire a plumbing technician, as waiting to deal with a malfunctioning water heater usually just makes it worse.
Common water heater problems:
- Leaks: Water heater leaks are a surefire indicator that something is wrong with your system, and should be dealt with right away. If you notice water seeping from the bottom of the unit, it’s possible there’s a crack in the internal tank, and you will need to replace your system altogether. If you notice a leak at the top of the unit, our Norfolk water heater pros may be able to repair it. Either way, you should call to have a professional look at the problem.
- A lack of hot water: If your heater is failing to make your water hot enough, there’s a good chance it’s because of sediment build-up in the tank. This happens over time, and if your heater is still in good condition otherwise, the sediment can usually be flushed out. However, if your water heater is old and this is happening consistently, you may need to replace it, as no amount of flushing can save a completely worn down unit.
- No hot water at all: If your unit has stopped producing hot water altogether, there are a few steps you should take. First, determine whether you have an electric or gas heater. If you have a gas unit, check to see if the pilot light is out. You can do this on your own, or you can call a professional to do it for you. If you have an electric unit, there is a good chance you’re dealing with a damaged breaker. Fortunately, this is something our Norfolk water heater technicians can also take care of. If neither of these issues are the culprit, your heater may have completely broken down, and you will have to install a new unit entirely.
