Common Water Heater Issues
Not every sign is as obvious when it comes to your hot water heater needing maintenance or replacement. Some common hot water heater issues to keep an eye out for include:
Warming Issues: Of course, some of the most obvious signs that there’s an issue with your hot water heater is when your water takes an increasingly long time to get hot, or the hot water doesn’t last for long. If you’re having warming issues, this means your heater either needs maintenance or it’s giving out and might need replacement. To find the cause, contact one of our technicians to assess the issue.
Leaks: Leaks are never a good sign, especially with a hot water heater. If you notice puddles, droplets collecting, or an apparent leak, contact a plumber ASAP. Leaks can be problematic because you don’t know how quickly they will worsen or the damage they’ll cause. In addition, leaks that have gone a while without being noticed can cause problems like mold or mildew growth.
Rust: Because hot water heaters deal with moisture, they’re highly susceptible to rust. The older your hot water heater gets, the more important it is to regularly check for things such as rust, which often signal a leak or old age. If you notice rust on your hot water heater, that area is more fragile due to the metal being eaten away and should be looked at by a professional.
Dark Water: If you notice any discoloration or dark tint to your hot water when you’re using it, this is often a sign something is wrong with your hot water heater. It could be something such as rust on the inside of the unit, or the unit itself could be failing.
New or Odd Noises: If your water heater begins making noises it’s never made before, there is most likely an issue. It’s possible that you might have one part that is failing due to rust, or the whole unit might be struggling due to old age. Constant noise can also mean there may be a buildup of sediment within your hot water heater.
