Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair
No appliance is designed to last forever, and when it comes to your water heater, you can expect to replace it every seven to 10 years. During the lifespan of the appliance, it may require periodic repairs to ensure reliability, enhance performance, and avoid a disruption in service. Contact Chapman for expert water heater repair if you notice any of the following signs:
Lack of Hot Water
If you turn on your shower or kitchen faucet to discover you have no hot water, it is a sure sign that you need water heater repair. (Chances are, your water heater gave off one or more clues of the impending breakdown.)
Fluctuating Water Temperatures
Inconsistent water temperature may be a sign that mineral deposits have accumulated around the heating element, or that it has failed and may need to be replaced.
Even the smallest leak can turn into a big problem if left untreated, and over time may lead to mold or bacteria growth. Check the area around your water heater on a regular basis and call for repair if you notice water on the floor around the appliance. Carefully inspect the water tank and connections to see if you can detect exactly where the water is coming from. If the source of the leak is not obvious, try cleaning up the water and checking back every hour to see if it reoccurs.
Low Hot Water Pressure
Routine maintenance, including an annual flushing, can help to prevent the accumulation of mineral deposits, but if left alone they can eventually build up in sufficient quantities to cause a blockage in your pipes, reducing the pressure of the water coming from the tank.
If you notice any loud or unusual sounds emanating from the heater, such as rumbling, popping, clanging, or cracking, there may be a buildup of sediment at the bottom of the tank. This can cause the appliance to overheat and should be addressed before further damage can occur.
Discoloration in Hot Water
Visible signs of rust or metallic tasting water that comes only from the hot water tap is a sign that your water heater may be corroding on the inside and may need to be replaced.
