Your water heater is one of the main appliances in your home. But you likely don’t think about what part of your daily routine depends on this piece of equipment until you need water heater repair in Voorhees.
Taking a steamy shower, running your dishwasher and cleaning clothes are just a couple examples of the home comforts that require hot water.
You more than likely won’t realize your water heater is going bad until you experience cold water coming out of your showerhead. If you’re aware of these cues, you won’t miss out on hot showers.
If you see these six signs, it’s time to call the pros at 856-310-4824.
If your water appears discolored, there is a reasonable chance that your water heater is rusting. This may lead to impure water and a leak.
A minor amount of noises are normal. If you hear loud clanking racket coming from your water heater, it could be an indication there is a problem.
If residue has thickened inside, your water heater may be less efficient. This could result in higher electric bills and potential damage to your equipment.
A leak is the most common cause of a failing water heater. If you notice water close to your tank, you’re potentially dealing with a leak and could risk significant water damage to your home.
Getting no hot water at all is clear proof of an issue. But fluctuating water temperature is often overlooked as an issue. This could mean mineral deposits have formed and your heating element needs to be repaired or changed.
If you’re receiving none or a small amount of hot water, there could be an issue with the pilot light. If you’re not confident how to service this, contact the Experts at 856-310-4824 in Voorhees. While some owners can relight the pilot light without assistance, it can be dangerous if you’re unsure of the process.
If you smell a rotten egg smell, don’t try to relight the pilot. Contact your local energy provider immediately.
The average life span of a residential water heater with proper upkeep is 10–12 years. Even if your water heater isn’t having an issue, it could be at a greater risk of a damaging leak.
If you’re unsure of your water heater’s age, examine the identification sticker on the unit. This indicates the manufacturing date and serial number.
If your water tastes metallic, your water lines could be corroded. If both hot and cold water is rusty, the corrosion is probably somewhere in your pipes.
If only the hot water is rusty, there’s a great chance the problem is inside your water heater.
You may also get foul-smelling water, which is more than likely due to mineral deposits. Routine care will help keep them from building up and damaging the inside of your water heater.
When you determine it is time for a replacement, the concern becomes tank vs. tankless. Here are some considerations about the advantages of tankless water heaters:
