Common Water Heater Issues
Stepping into the shower only to discover that you have no hot water is a harsh reality for early in the morning. But the reason you have no hot water, might not be as bad, or expensive, as you first imagine. Electric water heaters cannot heat the water if a circuit breaker is tripped or if the heating element has failed. Another common cause of failure is an issue with the thermostat. All of these problems can be fixed, in most cases, without the expense of a new water heater. Gas water heaters can fail due to an issue with the gas supply, the thermocouple, or even the ignition mechanism. But again, these can be fixed by a licesned, quality plumber for far less than the cost of a new unit.
Leaking water from the top of both gas and electric models is normally due to a loose connection, or a faulty pressure relief valve, which are easy and inexpensive to repair. Leaking at the base of either type of water heater could be a leaking drain valve, which can be replaced. But if the leak is coming from a hole in the tank due to corrosion, replacement is normally the only viable option.
If you notice that your water heater is taking extra-long to reheat water, it could be an issue with the heating element, sediment building up in the tank, or even your increased need for hot water. Often times a growing family will discover that a larger water heater is needed as their demand increases. But if the water never gets hot enough, you could be looking at an aging heating element that needs to be replaced or a thermostat that is wearing out. All of these issues are manageable for our techs, who will provide you with pricing options for the repairs needed to correct the issue.
Another common issue is not that you have no hot water, but that the hot water is either foul-smelling or is discolored. Both of these issues can easily be corrected. The rusty looking water indicates that the tank has a sediment build up and needs to be flushed. The bad smell is usually due to bacteria in the tank. Turning up the tank temperature could kill the bacteria, but cleaning the tank is also a good plan of attack.
If you notice an odd sound, such as banging, popping, or crackling, these could be due to sediment or scale on the heating element, or even a small leak in the tank or plumbing. It is not a cause for an emergency visit from us, but call 432-620-8900 to schedule a water heater inspection at your convenience just to avoid a more expensive issue if the unit fails. It is also worth a call for an evaluation if you notice issues with the pilot light on a gas unit. This is more of an annoyance than a danger, and it can often be remedied with a good cleaning.
