What Could Go Wrong?
Most water heaters work perfectly fine without a hitch, until something inevitably goes wrong. It can be a frustrating, often panic-inducing experience because these kinds of problems never happen at a convenient time. Perhaps you’re taking a shower and you start getting sprayed with cold water. Or maybe you just finished your basement and a leak starts appearing that’s coming from your water heater. These kinds of situations can make anyone livid, but it’s what you do next that’s important.
Let’s talk about some of the problems that could occur with your water heater and discuss—in detail—exactly what you should do in response.
A Water Heater Leak
If you’ve noticed a leak coming from your water heater, then the first and most important thing you can do is shut off your water. Not only will this prevent more water from leaking into your home, but it will also make it easier for you to clean up the mess while you call for a professional.
Water heaters need to be kept at a specific pressure and temperature, which can be hard on certain pipes over the length of a decade. Eventually, some of your pipes could rupture, corrode, or just start to fall apart which leads to leaks. While this might seem disconcerting, it’s easily fixable once you call for professional help.
Poor Water Pressure
Nobody likes low water pressure, and it could be that this is just a sign of sediment build-up or the wear and tear of your water heater. Before you invest in a water heater replacement, or you think your home needs a lot of work, make sure you call one of our professionals to take a look. We’ll be able to find the most affordable, effective solution for your home and your budget.
No Hot Water
What’s the point of having a water heater if it doesn’t heat up your water? This could be a problem with the heater’s burner or electrical coil, which is only something that can be fixed by a professional. The good news is that your system most likely only needs a quick repair or component replacement and then you’ll be back to enjoying hot water.
