Water Heater Services by Sunshine
Performing regular maintenance and inspection on your appliances means you will know ahead of time if you require water heater services. If you let things get out of hand or don’t check for things that might go unnoticeable, you could run into bigger problems over time.
If you think that you may end up seeking out water heater services, look out for some common issues while inspecting the water heater that can give you an idea as to where the problem is coming from and how serious the repairs will be. For example, if you’re experiencing water temperature issues, have noticed leaks or discolored water, and if you hear odd noises coming from it. When it comes to what the temperature of your water can tell you, if it’s cold, it could be because of a lack of power, a faulty thermostat, or a faulty heating element. If the water is warm but not hot enough, it could be because of an undersized water heater. And if the water is much too hot, then the thermostat might be set too high.
As one might expect, leaks are never a good sign and should be treated immediately. They could be caused by a number of different things such as faulty water pressure, overheating, a stuck valve, loose heating element bolts, a bad gasket, or a leaking water tank. While you’re inspecting and maintaining your water heater, be sure to tighten bolts and connections, but even making them too tight could cause a leak, so keep that in mind.
Rusty water can be a sign of corrosion of your tank’s inner lining, often caused by a failing anode rod that might need to be replaced, and if you hear any weird noises it might mean sediment build up. For many of these issues, you may need a professional to perform water heater services for you. In fact, a good plumber can help repair your water heater if it’s a small enough issue, or they will also tell you if they recommend replacing it entirely for something that will save you water and therefore money in the long run.
