Most Common Water Heater Problems
Because we use our water heaters so often, they experience their share of wear and tear. In our years of service, we have encountered and resolved every type of water heater problem imaginable.
Some of the most common water heater problems include:
- Leaks: Water heater leaks can be caused by a number of things such as broken drain valves, excessive pressure buildup within the tank, corrosion, faulty temperature and pressure relief valves, or loose heating element bolts.
- Rusty, odd-smelling water: If you turn your faucet on and reddish-brown, metallic-smelling water comes out, this is a sign that there is so some serious corrosion within your tank. When the inside of your tank is rusted, that rust can break off and contaminate your water.
- Unusual noises: Water heaters are designed to make very little noise while operating. If yours is making rumbling sounds, there is a chance that there may be too much sediment built up within the tank.
- Temperature problems: One of the most common water heater problems we encounter is temperature problems. If the temperature is too high or too low, and adjusting your thermostat doesn’t help, the thermostat may be broken.
- Not enough hot water: When it seems like your hot water always runs out too quickly, your thermostat might be broken. However, oftentimes, this problem is caused by a water heater being too small to meet the needs of a household.
- No hot water: No hot water is a problem that could be caused by a few things. First, you will want to check to be sure your pilot light is actually lit. If the light is on as it should be and you still don’t have hot water, you might be dealing with a tripped circuit breaker, broken heating element, or a faulty thermostat.
How to Prevent Water Heater Breakdowns
When it comes to ensuring your water heater maintains peak performance and lasts longer, preventative maintenance is crucial. Our team recommends having your system inspected and tuned up by a professional at least once a year. During a maintenance appointment, your technician will examine each component of your system, tighten any loose connections, flush sediment out of the tank, and determine if any repairs need to be made. Not only does maintenance ensure that your system works efficiently and effectively but it also significantly reduces the chances of a system breakdown.
Water Heater Repair Vs. Replacement
When your water heater breaks down, you have two choices. You can either opt to replace the unit outright or consult our Garland water heater repair experts about getting yours back in working order. While repair is usually cheaper, it's not always the financially prudent maneuver as in the following situations.
1. Your unit is old - Traditional tank units last on average about 10 years while tankless water heaters can make it to 20. If your unit is much older than that, then it's on its last legs and you should think twice before sinking more money into water heater repair.
2. There's damage to the tank - If there's a leak or corrosion going on in your tank then it will cost more to fix than to replace the unit outright.
3.Repair after repair (or a costly repair) - At some point, enough visits from our Garland water heater repair experts are going to be more expensive than a new unit. Also, be wary of an expensive repair on an older unit as it's an unnecessary cost that's simply putting off the inevitable.
