Signs of a Damaged Water Heater
There are some telltale signs that your water heater broke, so be on the lookout for these instances:
No Hot Water – The most obvious sign that there are issues with your hot water supply is the complete lack of hot water. If you have a gas model then you will need to check the pilot light, and for electric models, you will need to see if the circuit breaker has been tripped. If neither of these are occurring, then you may need the assistance of a professional plumber.
Hot Water Runs Out – If you find your relaxing showers constantly running out of warm water, then there may be an issue with the thermostat or the size of your heater.
Smelly and/or Discolored Water – This may be due to corroded metal from the heater or its anode rod. There may be a buildup of bacteria or sediment as well, meaning your system needs a flushing to remove the issue.
Leaking System – A leaking water system could mean one valve just needs to be tightened, or that you are in need of an entire water heater replacement. A leak at the base of the unit is a clear sign that there may be severe issues requiring professional assistance.
Water Heater Types We Service
Tankless Water Heater – Tankless water heaters have become one of the most popular and highly recommended units in the past few years. Tankless systems can deliver unlimited hot water, making them incredibly convenient for most homes.
Gas Water Heaters – These traditional heaters are what most people think of when they imagine a water heater. For larger homes, these heaters are ideal as they provide a large supply to multiple faucets. The downside of gas heaters is that they also use a lot of water and may be more expensive on your utility bills.
Electric Water Heaters – Electric heaters are admired by many due to their compact size, with many being small enough to fit underneath a sink or in a cabinet.
