Common Problems with Water Heaters

It is very important to be prepared in case a problem emerges with your residential water heater. Minor issues could lead to major problems that require professional service. The most common issue that occurs is inconsistent water temperature levels. Discolored and rusty water is also another common issue that results from corrosion in the tank’s inner lining. Leaking water heaters can cause damage to other parts of your home including pipes and other appliances. Dirty, rusty, or smelly water is a sign of bacteria buildup in the heater and could cause you many health problems. Common water heater problems cause the unit to malfunction and its symptoms can vary from mild to extreme.

Recognizing Water Heater Problems

Knowing when to call a professional and when to attempt a repair yourself can save you from completely damaging your hot water heater. Make sure to turn off your tank heater before starting any non-professional troubleshooting yourself. Many problems can also occur due to improper settings or a lack of tank maintenance. The most important thing you can do is identify the problem early and take proper steps to rectify it. Ignoring these issues will result in expensive and dangerous consequences. The safest choice is to hire a professional with extensive knowledge about plumbing services to check up on your water heater. Taking preventative measures to protect your water heater will save you time and money in the long run.
