Why Should You Call a Professional?
Water heaters can produce extreme temperatures. The average heater produces temperatures around 120 degrees Fahrenheit, which can cause first degree burns. A malfunctioning heater can easily produce temperatures around 160 degrees, which can cause much more severe burning. It is best to allow a trained professional make the repairs than to take that risk yourself.
Signs You Need a New Water Heater:
A water heater is essential for everyday tasks in your home, like taking a shower and washing dishes. If your warranty is expired, buying a more efficient model will help you save both water and energy. It also keeps you from having to pay for an expensive breakdown in the future. If your unit is in a place where it will cause damage if it leaks, replace it immediately instead of risking mold, mildew, or water damage.
Tips on how to check if you need a new water heater!
- Leaks are never a good thing. If you notice water puddling around your water heater, or it leaks when standing, it's a sign the inner tank has reached the end of its life. Slow drips and leaks quickly escalate, causing serious flooding if the entire tank breaks.
- When you turn on the hot water, the clear water you are used to turns to a rusty color that is anything but pleasing.
- You turn on the hot water to find no hot water. This can be caused by one of two things. One, your pilot light is out or the circuit breaker has tripped. Or two, your hot water heater has reached its useful life.
- Muddy or sandy water can be a sign of sediment build up in your tank. In some cases, you can drain the contents to remove sediment and bring your water heater back to normal.
- When you turn on the hot water, it has a metallic smell and taste to it. This is a sign that the water heater is breaking down, with grit and flakes from the inner tank combining with your water supply.
- Warm water but not hot water can be an indication of your heating element burning out. Adjust your thermostat to make sure the temperature is set between 120 to 140 degrees, anything lower could provide warm but not hot water.
- Noise is always an indicator. If you hear your water heater “loud cracks and pops for instance“ it may be an indication that the interaction between the heating elements and the inside heater has mineral build up on them.
