Water heaters are large cylindrical tanks that are often located in your home’s garage, basement, or laundry room. The main purpose of your home’s water heater is to warm the cold water that travels through your home’s system. There are a few different types of water heater systems: conventional storage water heaters, condensing water heaters, tankless water heaters, hybrid (heat pump) water heaters, and solar water heaters. Most water heaters will last around 8-12 years, so keep in mind how old your water heater may be. No matter what type of  system your home has, A-1 Speedy Rooter and Plumbing, Inc. is able to solve all your water heater problems, and will get your hot water back and running.

Signs Of

A Water Heater Problem

Are you uncertain if your water heater is the source of your household’s plumbing problem? The most noticeable sign is if you are not getting any hot water in your entire home’s system. A more subtle sign would be if you are consistently experiencing lukewarm water, or if you notice that there is a significant delay in receiving hot water. However, there are also other tell-tale signs that can give you a clue that it is time to repair or replace your worn-out water heater. Here are some red flags to help you see if it’s time to call a professional plumber to assist you.

Rusty Water

Rusty water from both the cold and hot water tap would point to a problem with corroded pipes, or the main water line. However, if you are noticing rusty colored water or brown water only when you turn on the hot water tap, the problem may not stem from the faucet or water pipes. The issue could instead lie with the water heater tank, and in such cases, call A-1 Speedy Root and Plumbing, Inc. immediately. We offer expert inspection services for your water heater tank, and can help identify any urgent issues that need to be addressed.

Your Water Heater Is Leaking

Another sign that your water heater is in trouble is if you notice it is leaking. Check the area around your water heater. If there are small puddles in the vicinity, it could either be from the condensation, or something worse. This could be a sign that your water heater is leaking from the bottom. You can check the drain valve and the pressure relief valve located at the bottom of the tank to see if the leak is coming from either source. If you suspect that leaking is the case, your water heater will need to be replaced as soon as possible.

Abnormal Sounds Coming From The Water Heater

One red flag to be conscious of is if you notice that your water heater is making noises. This could sound like a popping noise, a gurgling sound, or a rumbling noise. These sounds are indications that there is built-up sediment in the tank, usually as a result of processing hard water. Over time, as the sediment forms a layer, it will reduce and slow down your water heater’s efficiency in providing hot water to your home. A worthwhile investment for your water heater is a water softener. By filtering out the sediment, water softeners can help reduce the strain from processing hard water.
