Signs That Your Water Heater Needs Repair or Replacement

One appliance that is regularly relied on in a household is the water heater. Whether you’re doing dishes, showering, or running some laundry, a well-working water heater is essential to getting the job done! If your hot water doesn’t seem to be working effectively (or at all), then don’t hesitate to call in our expert and licensed staff here at Stadler Plumbing. We can help you out!

In the meantime, keep your eyes peeled for any signs that your water heater may be faltering. The sooner we spot issues, the better! The following indicators may mean it’s time to call us in.

Problems With Water Temperature

Most of the time, people notice water heater issues when their water won’t stay hot for long periods of time. Other signs of trouble are when your water takes ages to warm up, gets much hotter than normal, or simply doesn’t get hot at all. Basically anything unusual in regards to your water temperature is a red flag and indicates that some professional care may be necessary in the near future.

Strange Noises From The Unit

If you’ve been hearing rumbling or clanking from your water heater, that’s a clear-cut sign of trouble. Sediment builds up as your water heater ages and it hardens over time, which then causes it to bump into the sides of the unit’s interior and make a lot of noise. This is a sign that your water heater is reaching the end of its life. Once this starts to occur, it won’t operate as efficiently, and it could cause damage, as well, should the sediment cause the tank to crack or form holes.

Rusty Water/Discoloration

Turn on just the hot side of your faucet and observe the color of the water. If it is rusty or discolored, then there’s a good chance that your water heater is breaking down. When your system gets old it rusts from the inside, thus affecting the color of your water supply.

That being said, rusty water could have to do with your pipes, meaning your water heater might be just fine. In any case, discoloration is something to be concerned about and our professional team can help you determine the cause and address it.

Water Around The Appliance

Leaks are a clear sign of trouble, so be aware of water around the water heater. If a leak has occurred, your unit won’t run well, and any possessions near the water heater may get ruined, too. Water damage is a frustrating issue to deal with, so call us in at the first sign of trouble. We’ll get you where you need to be in no time!

Other Warning Signs

Other signs of water heater damage are strange odors coming from the system, problems with the pilot, or issues with the main burner. It’s also wise to note your water heater’s age. If it is over 10 years old, then you’ll likely start noticing problems soon, even if nothing is occurring yet.
