Home water heaters deliver the hot water you use every day. From showering to washing dishes to doing the laundry, many household tasks require these systems. People often take water heaters for granted — until they run into a problem that disrupts their access to hot water.
You're likely to experience a number of common problems with a water heater. For example, you may find that your water is not staying hot for very long. In this case, the solution may be as simple as turning up the temperature on the tank's thermostat. If you're getting no hot water at all, there may be a larger issue with the heating element, which could require replacement.
If your tank is noisy, sediment at the bottom of it is the most likely culprit. The noise comes from the heating element burning the sediment. Another major issue that requires immediate attention is leaking in the tank. Leaks can quickly lead to a completely drained tank if they're left unaddressed, so it's best to contact a professional as soon as you notice one.
The good news is that all of these problems can be easily avoided with regular maintenance.
Auburn, NY, Water Heater Inspection
A water heater inspection involves more than just checking water levels and giving things a once-over. Water heaters are a vital component of your home, so they require thorough inspection and service. When you schedule a maintenance appointment with Mr. Rooter Plumbing, we will complete the following steps:
- Sediment flush: Sediment buildup around the bottom of your tank is normal, but left unchecked, it can cause problems. By flushing the water and removing sediment, you can avoid damage and ensure heating efficiency.
- Anode rod: This component of your water heater naturally dissolves over time to protect the heater from rust. If the anode rod is neglected and excess rust develops, it could cause your water heater to break. During your maintenance appointment, our technician will check the rod to see if it needs to be replaced.
- Health analysis: After we have inspected and cleaned your water heater, we will discuss its condition with you, informing you of any concerns.
