Common Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repairs
The best way to keep the cost of repairs down is to pay close attention to your water heater. While some signs that something is wrong are difficult to identify, there are still a number of clear symptoms that should signal you to call in a professional to take a look. Some of the most common signs that your water heater needs repairs include:
- Strange noises coming from the tank. Your water heater shouldn’t be making much noise, if any at all. One of the most common causes of this is sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, which can make noise when the heating element burns it. The noises could also be caused by the heating element burning out – either way, it’s important to call a technician to diagnose the issue before it becomes worse.
- No hot water coming from your faucets or taps. This is by far the easiest symptom to recognize and is typically caused by a blown pilot light. Whether you have a gas water heater or an electric one, one of our plumbing professionals can easily replace this heating element and get your water heater running again.
- Strange or noxious smells coming from the water in your home. While smelly water could be caused by a different issue in your plumbing system, it could also be caused by bacteria buildup in your how water heater. While there are some possible home remedies, we don’t recommend you attempt them unless you have plumbing experience.
- Water leaking from your water heater. A leaking tank typically signals the end of your unit’s life. There are a number of reasons why this can happen, but the most important thing to do is to call a plumbing professional immediately before the leaking water can cause more serious and permanent damage to your home.
Why is My Water Heater Leaking?
There are many reasons why a water heater might start leaking; some of them are easier to solve than others. Regardless of the cause, it's critical that you take immediate action at the first sign of a leak. Leaks are problems that only get worse with time, and any delay could result in hundreds or even thousands of dollars worth of water damage.
Water heater leaks may be caused by:
- Problems with the temperature and pressure relief (T&P) valve
- Loose drain valve or inlet/outlet connections
- Rusting and corrosion inside of the tank
Valve leaks are typically repairable, but if your water heater is more than a decade old and you have noticed leaking from the bottom of the tank, it's likely that sediment build-up and corrosion have pushed your water heater past the point of repair. If you are in need of a replacement, we can help you select a new water heater that meets your requirements for energy efficiency, output, and cost.
