How Do I Know if Something Is Wrong with My Water Heater?

In order to get help from a professional at the first sign of trouble, you need to know what those signs are. Some things will be quite obvious, like a lack of hot water for the shower each morning. But there are also subtler signs to look out for which can be the precursors of larger trouble looming. Take note of the following:

  • Strange Noises: If you happen to notice that your water heater has gotten noisier lately, that would be one good sign that it may need repair. This could mean trouble with the heating element, plumbing, or other important components of the water heater system. Get the noise checked right away before the situation grows worse.
  • Reduced Water Temperature: Also be on the lookout for gradual or slight drops in temperature. Your water heater will not always work at 100% efficiency, so sometimes water will be warmer than other times, especially just after turning it on. However, if it seems like the water generally just doesn’t get as hot as it used to, it may be time to have the water heater looked at.
  • Unusual Odor: Strong or foul odors—such as a “rotten egg” smell—that you notice any time you turn on your hot water could also indicate that your water heater is decaying internally. Also, pay attention to any popping or crackling noises coming from your water heater. This could mean that there’s a sediment build up on the bottom, which can cause further corrosion or decay.

Contact us as soon as you notice any of these problems because the sooner they are addressed, the easier it’ll be to prevent major damage to your water heater!

Water Heater Repair FAQs

How many years does a hot water heater last?

Traditional tank-style water heaters last an average of about 10 years depending on the quality of the water system they’re attached to and the level of care they receive. Gas hot water heaters tend to last 8 to 12 years, while electric water heaters can last a bit longer at 10 to 15 years. Tankless water heaters can last considerably longer—generally around 20 years.

Do plumbers repair water heaters?

Yes! If you’re wondering who fixes water heaters, the answer is “plumbers” in most cases. Some issues, like circuit breaker tripping, blown fuse boxes, or loose wiring, may require the help of an electrician. Either way, a plumber should be your first call to help diagnose the problem and provide potential solutions.

What would cause a hot water heater to stop working?

There are many issues that could cause your water heater to operate less than effectively. Common issues include a pilot light that’s not lit, broken heating elements, incorrect thermostat settings, sediment buildup (tank water heaters), electrical issues, and tank leaks. And if your original water heater installation was handled by an amateur, you may have a water heater that’s too small for your home’s hot water needs. Your best bet when troubleshooting is to check on the pilot light (for gas water heaters) and thermostat first, then call a plumber if neither of those simple issues seems to be causing your water heater’s problems.

How much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

The cost will vary considerably depending on the problem. If you simply need to adjust your thermostat or re-light your pilot light, fixing the issue yourself will cost you nothing. But fixing loose wiring, flushing the water heater, replacing faulty heating elements, or replacing the water heater itself all cost different amounts depending on the replacement parts and labor involved. Your hot water heater repairman should be able to give you an accurate estimate before beginning work. And most companies offer free estimates on complete water heater replacements!

Expert Plumbing World Class Service

Kerlin is an absolute dream to work with. He was my second plumber for the day. Silly me, I had a different company out and we politely dismissed them before they started any work and called world class pros instead. Upon arrival, Kerlin and Cameron dawned on foot booties and entered to hear my concerns. After showing him the bathroom toilet he said "It shouldn't be doing that, let us get in and take a look". OMG those words were like magic, no prejudgment, no scary sales pitch like the other guys. I was immediately at ease. The previous plumber immediately said (after viewing the toilet), I'll have to pull out the toilet and see what's in there. Well there was nothing in there and Kerlin didn't have to pull it out for a proper diagnosis. I had a couple of other plumbing concerns which Mr. Kerlin addressed in a spirit of joy. He kept me informed, gave me options and by the time they left I felt like I was his only customer. If you have to have plumbers out, why not have the kindest, most professional and knowledgeable guys from Dial One. THANK YOU Dial One

Experience plus Professionalism

Kerlin arrived both with a big smile. He introduced himself saying we’re your plumbers and he introduced Cameron who seemed equally as happy. My 1st thought was “Wow, these guys like their job”. They quickly diagnosed my immediate concern and gave me two options. This guy had a wealth of knowledge and I found myself engaged in a conversation that made plumbing understandable for the average consumer. Before leaving they answered a ton of questions regarding my other plumbing headaches and offered solutions to them. Dare I say it was a pleasure to interact with these gentlemen. You WILL NOT be disappointed with Dial One & their team!!
