Water Heater is Leaking
Water heaters can leak for a number of different reasons. It may be that you’re just seeing condensation on the outside of your water heater. However, if it is leaking, it’s imperative you seek expert assistance quickly. In the best case, there’s just a valve that needs to be tightened to stop the leaks. However, leaks are often caused by corrosion inside the tank. This is not typically possible to repair, but we can help you find the best replacement.
Water is Not Getting Hot
If your water is not getting hot at all, it might be because the heating element or thermocouple has burnt out. The heating element (for an electric water heater) or thermocouple (for a gas water heater) is the part that actually heats the water. If this burns out, you won’t have any hot water. We can replace this part for you easily and quickly, making sure you have hot water again right away.
Water is Too Hot
The most common reason for the water being too hot is simply that the thermostat is too high. Check the temperature setting on the water heater to make sure it’s at a comfortable level. If this does not fix the issue, your water may be getting too hot because the water heater is not shutting off when the water is at the right temperature. We can diagnose and repair this for you to ensure you won’t be injured by water that’s too hot to touch.
Water Heater Tanks is Making Noises
Water heaters can sometimes make popping noises. This needs to be taken care of as quickly as possible. Most of the time, this is because of sediment build-up in the water heater. While sediment will build up over time, if it builds up too much, it can burn and cause the popping noises. We will drain your tank to remove the sediment and then refill it. This can also be done yearly as part of your regular home maintenance tasks to prevent build-up that could lead to further issues.
Water Smells Bad
Your water shouldn’t really smell like anything. If it smells like rotten eggs, there could be a couple of different reasons. First, check to see if it’s just the hot water or if all of the water in your home smells bad. If it’s just the hot water, it may be due to bacteria building up in the water heater. You’ll need to have it drained and cleaned before being able to use it again. If the smell is with the hot and cold water, plumbing experts will need to determine where exactly the smell is coming from so they can fix it for you.
Hot Water is Rust-Colored
The rust color that appears is a sign that there is corrosion inside the water heater. If this is noticed, you’ll need to stop using the water heater immediately and contact one of our experts for help. Most of the time, this is going to mean you’ll need a replacement water heater as the corroded areas cannot be repaired.
