Do You Need Repairs? Common Water Heater Problems
Many different factors can contribute to water heater problems. As a property owner, it’s vital to schedule regular inspections and tune-ups to evaluate and maintain the performance of your water heater.
Is your unit leaking? Is it providing adequate amounts of hot water? If so, is the water hot enough? Normally, a leaking water heater means there is a crack in the internal tank. This, in turn, means the water heater needs to be replaced unless other mechanical factors are to blame.
If you’re experiencing unreliable output from your gas water heater, then it could be something as simple as a dirty pilot orifice. For electrical water heaters, a lack of hot water might stem from a tripped breaker or faulty thermostat.
Water Heater Replacement Vs. Repair
Unfortunately, water heater problems tend to be one extreme or the other—an easy fix or a complete loss. If your unit is more than 15 years old, requires frequent repairs, or you’re seeing signs of performance or water quality decline even after maintenance, replacement is likely the more cost-effective solution. Cracked tanks also often warrant replacement due to the cost of tank repair.
Our experts will always be honest with you about the condition of your water heater and your options. We’ll provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision. In addition to quality water heater replacement services, we also can handle standard-to-tankless water heater conversion and from-scratch water heater installation for new construction.
