COMMON PROBLEMS TO BE AWARE OF
Four of the most common water heater problem indicators are age, leaking, noise, and temperature issues. Snap Air & Heating Repair is familiar with these problems:
- Age – the average lifespan of a water heater ranges from 8 to 12 years, depending on whether it’s electric or gas, how much it is used, the manufacturer, and of course, which water heater guru you might be talking to. A water heater that is pushing 12 years of age, has started making a lot of different noises, and struggles to provide enough hot water is probably overdue for replacement.
- Leaking – water leaking around the appliance is never a good sign because there is no quick and easy repair for this. If you notice any leaking, you should consider replacing your water heater S.A.P. before it floods the area where it is located. If you do buy a new one, call Snap Air & Heating Repair to install it for you.
- Noise – nothing is worse than a noisy water heater. Obviously, it shouldn’t be doing that. This usually indicates that sediment inside the appliance is getting burned of the heating element inside the tank. In some cases, flushing out your water heater will eliminate this problem. However, if it doesn’t, then it may be that the heating element has gone bad and needs to be replaced.
- Temperature – if your water doesn’t get hot enough or gets too hot, it could just mean that you need to adjust the thermostat. Otherwise, it may be the heating element. This is especially applicable if it is an electric water heater or if it’s a gas-powered appliance, then the issue is with the thermocouple. We repair both of these issues quickly and affordably.
Another sure sign that your water heater needs to be replaced is when you have rusty water coming from the hot water pipe. It means that it is rusting internally.
