Is it Time For A New Water Heater

Is your water heater not working too well? Has your hot water started running out midway through your shower? Does it feel like it takes forever for your water to get hot? If you answered “yes” to any of the above questions, then it might be time for a new water heater.

How Do I Know If My Water Heater Is In Trouble?

Deciding if there is actually an issue with your water heater can be tricky. A few signs that could be pointing to trouble with your water heater are the following:

  • The water becomes too hot or too cold
  • The water takes too long to heat up
  • The system runs out of hot water quickly.

Another issue people commonly experience is noise coming from the tank. When sediment and debris build up and harden inside the water heater, they start to clank around the water heater. This makes loud sounds that can eventually trigger leaks and damage to your tank.

Is your water rusty?

Rust can also get into your water, and this can either be a result of rusted pipes or a rusted water heater. If you are not sure which is causing the issue, then you should test each by running your hot and cold water separately. If the rusty water only appears when you are running hot water, then it is probably time for you to get a water heater inspection or replacement.

Is Your Water Heater Working Properly This Winter?

For many people, there is nothing quite like hopping into a hot shower at the end of a long day. That is, unless your water heater is not broken down. After a long day, you run the tub, only to discover there is no hot water. What a frustrating experience! You can stay ahead of the game by working with the team at Stadler Plumbing. We are here to help!

Signs To Watch For

man servicing water heater An obvious sign that your water heater is on the edge of a breakdown is a lack of hot water. Whether it is taking a long time to heat up, not staying hot, or not producing any hot water at all, not having enough hot water is so annoying. It hinders simple things such as letting everyone have a hot shower or get your dishes done.

Strange noises are another common side effect of a faulty water heater. As the sediment in your system builds up and hardens, it will start clanking around the inside of the tank. This causes all kinds of noises to occur. If you hear something like this, keep an open eye for leaks and invest in professional care right away. Eventually, those hardened pieces of debris can form a hole and send water everywhere.

Is your water looking a little rusty or discolored? Unfortunately, this is another sign that your appliance needs repairs or replacement. If your system is rusting from the inside out, you will notice the side effects in your hot water.

Bad odors, problems with your pilot light, and water leaking from the tank are all indications that you need professional assistance. Keep your senses alert to anything out of the ordinary with your water heater. Don’t hesitate to call on our team for help. Our team specialize in installing and repairing water heaters, and we have countless satisfied customers throughout Macomb County and surrounding areas.

How Old Is Your Water Heater?

It may be hard to avoid a replacement, especially if you have had your water heater for a long time. A lot of water heater problems can be fixed by an educated plumber, but once the system is over 10 years old, it starts to deteriorate a lot quicker. The last thing anyone needs in the middle of winter is a broken down water heater, so invest in a new one before yours completely shuts down.

Whether you purchase a gas water heater, an electric model, a high-efficiency model, or a tankless one, we are qualified to help you install it in your home! You can rest easier when our licensed team is on the job. Why put it off? Invest in a new water heater today!
