Sometimes, you may not even be aware that you are having a problem with your water heater until you suddenly stop getting hot water. There are ways, however, to notice that there is a problem with your water heater before you lose hot water. Make sure that you check on your water heater every once in a while so that you can detect any minor issues.
Keep an eye out for the following:
Unusual noises – if you start to notice that your water heater is making strange noises or is louder than usual then you may want to call a plumbing technician. This could mean that there is something wrong with one of the parts or the system is being overworked. If you hear a popping noise that could be a sign of something inside of your water heater.
Lower water temperature – if your water isn’t getting as hot as you set it for or if it takes a long time for the water to get hot, this could be the sign of a larger problem. While it is normal for you water heater to occasionally take a longer-than-normal time to heat water, if this is happening every day then you should call an experienced plumber.
Strange odors – if you start to notice a strange odor coming from your water heater or the hot water itself then you should definitely call a plumber. This could be caused by decaying matter, a gas leak (especially if it is a rotten egg smell) or something as simple as debris burning as it lands on the hot system.
Make sure that you contact our team at Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Cooling and Heating as soon as you notice any of these. We will send one of our technicians to complete thorough inspection of your water heater to identify the problem.
Water Heater Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some answers to frequently asked questions about water heaters.
What is the average lifespan of a water heater?
The lifespan of your water heater will depend on how old it is, how often it receives maintenance, the quality of the system and what kind of system it is. Tank water heaters last about 10 years, gas water heaters last about 8 to 12 years and electric water heaters last about 10 to 15 years. If you are looking for a long-lasting system, then you should consider a tankless water heater because they can last up to 20 years.
Can plumbers repair water heaters?
Yes we can! A plumber is the first person that you should call when you have a water heater that needs a repair. Once the plumber inspects the system, they may refer you to an electrician if the problem has to do with the electrical system. In most situations, a plumber will be able to solve your problem.
Why might a water heater stop working?
There are many problems that may cause a water heater to stop working. Here are the most common problems that we come across:
Pilot light issues
Inaccurate thermostat reading or setting
Malfunctioning heating components
Sediment or debris buildup
Tank water leakage
Electrical wiring issues
Many water heater problems may be the result of improper installation. If the system was not sized correctly or was installed incorrectly, it could lead to a slew of issues. When you hire Dial One Johnson Plumbing, Cooling and Heating we take the time to thoroughly size and install your water heater so that you don’t have to worry about these issues.
What is the cost of a water heater repair?
The cost of a water heater repair will really depend on the severity of the problem and the system itself. A malfunctioning thermostat is not nearly as serious as a water tank leak. In some cases, you may even have to get the whole system replaced. Our technicians can provide you with an estimate and affordable options. We also provide flexible financing in case the repair or replacement does not fit within your budget.
