How to Know If
Your Hot Water Heater is Damaged
Your system’s typical water heater problems include rust-colored water, a lack of hot water, strange sounds, and leaks. Your equipment might need to be replaced in extreme circumstances. Common signs of a malfunctioning hot water heater include:
Leaking or puddles
Strange behavior such as smells or noises
Poor water quality
Slow temperature changes
Insufficient hot water
Whether your water heater is electric or gas-powered will determine the examination and repair technique we use. A working gas pilot control valve will be examined in appliances using natural gas. Replace the anode rods in the water heater if you notice a change in the color of your water, such as rusty water. If your unit’s tank is making unusual noises, sediment accumulation is the cause.
To fix this, clean the tank and if you have a water softening system installed, inspect it.
