Water Heater Repair

There’s nothing better than having reliable hot water. No matter your household size, you rely on your water heater to provide hot water throughout the day as you go about your daily routine. While there are many home maintenance tasks that often take priority, you know your water heater is set up to last a long time, and therefore it won’t be an issue as you focus on other home projects.

But, what if your water heater was giving you subtle signals that it needs a repair? Would you know the signs?

  • Noises – One of the first warning signs that you may require water heater repair is if you begin hearing clanking and popping coming from the tank. It’s easy to chalk this up to the water heater doing its job, but it could be a bigger indicator that something needs attention.
  • Leaking – Something subtle that can be an indicator of water heater repair is when there is leaking around the tank. If you notice that the floor is wet or there is an active leak from the tank, you’ll want to call about water heater repair right away.
  • No Hot Water – A bigger sign that you need water heater repair is obviously if there is no hot water, or if the hot water you do get is intermittent. If this is the case, your water heater may be about to give out entirely, and you’ll want to talk with your plumber about a replacement tank.
