When to Get Your Water Heater Serviced

When to Get Your Water Heater Serviced Hot water is something many of us take for granted. However, we use hot water regularly throughout the day for household chores and personal hygiene. All of the benefits of hot water are delivered to us through a often ignored appliance, the hot water heater. It is easy to forget about the water heater, until it stops working that is.

Common Signs of Water Heater Issues

One of the most obvious signs of a water heater problem is a lack of hot water. If you are getting no hot water at all when turning on the tap, and your heater has just been installed, it is probably a setting problem. It is a good idea to call a professional plumber to check on your water heater, to ensure it is nothing more serious. While temperature settings are fairly straightforward, the wrong setting could make water so hot it burns you or causes dangerous burns to children who may use the faucets. Along with settings the pilot light may be out, or there may be a problem with the thermostat.

Another water heater issue is not having enough hot water. Nothing is more aggravating than being a second person to use a shower and having it be cold, or running out of hot water in the middle of a long, comforting shower. This can be a thermostat problem as well, but it may also be due to a clog in the flue stopping the flow of water through the heater’s tubing.

While this is an aggravating problem, it can also be a dangerous one. If there is a lack of water flow in the heater, it could begin to burn, and gasses will accumulate until they are forced through the water heater’s vent. This is not a problem to play around with. Call your plumber to have all vents and flues checked, and make sure your water heater is working correctly or you can have a new water heater replacement done quickly so you and your family are not left without proper water available for your needs. An opposite problem for water heaters is creating water that is too hot. This is a serious problem because water heaters are capable of producing extreme heat where the water will cause severe burns. Always check the temperature of your water before stepping into a shower or bath, or putting hands in dishwater.

Children may be at risk if the water heater is producing water that is so hot it burns skin, so make sure your plumber comes out to adjust the temperature controls and checks for malfunctions in the heater. If the problem is more severe, your plumber will likely be able to provide you with a water heater replacement quickly and make sure it is installed correctly to avoid future problems. Leaking is an obvious problem that requires quick resolution. When you see a pool of water forming under or around the water heater, it is time to call your friendly professional plumber to fix or replace your water heater. Some other issues that are common issues with water heaters that your plumber can solve include: smelly, foul or discolored water and popping noises from your tank.

Types Of Water Heaters

Storage Tank Heaters: these are the most common types of heaters and they have been around for the longest time. They consist of a large insulated tank that holds water to be heated and kept for use. Tank heaters run on gas or electric fuel and provide a consistent level of heat for as long as the water in the tank lasts. Once the water is used, new water must be heated to replace it before it will provide hot water again. Make sure you consult with your plumber to determine the size of water heater your home will need to keep all members of the family satisfied.

Tankless Water Heaters: These water heaters are a newer style that creates a more energy friendly way of delivering water to your household. They are also known as on-demand water heaters, and do not have a tank to hold and keep water at a certain temperature. That means they are not burning fuel when not in use to keep water hot. It can take a little longer for hot water to come through the pipes when turned on, because a tankless heater must heat up the water as it passes through the unit.

Mobile home heaters are also available in both storage tank and tankless models for smaller spaces and can be either gas or electric.

Hot water is required for the proper running of your house or small company.
