Frequently asked questions about water heater repairs

What is the most common problem with water heaters?

The most common problem with water heaters is sediment buildup in the tank. Over time, minerals in hard water will break down and settle onto the bottom of your tank, forming sediment deposits that can reduce efficiency and lead to premature failure. If you notice that your hot water supply has decreased or if you hear loud rumbling noises coming from your tank, it could be a sign that sediment buildup is causing problems. Fortunately, this issue can often be resolved by simply draining and flushing out your tank on a regular basis.

Is it better to fix or replace the water heater?

Whether it’s better to fix or replace a broken water heater depends on several factors—including the age of your unit, how often you use it, and how much damage there is—but generally speaking, if your current model is more than 8-12 years old and/or needs frequent repairs, replacing it may be more cost-effective in the long run. If you aren’t sure whether to repair or replace your unit, contact a trained technician for professional advice.

What are the signs your water heater is going out?

If you hear loud banging noises coming from your tank while heating up or if no hot water comes out when you turn on the faucet, these could both be signs that something is wrong with your unit. Additionally, rust-colored or murky-looking tap water could indicate corrosion inside the tank; likewise for leaks around the base of the heater or along pipes connected to it. Finally, if you notice higher-than-normal energy bills without having used any more hot water than usual recently then this could also signify an issue with your unit’s efficiency that needs addressing sooner rather than later.
