Get An Opinion From Somebody You Can Depend On
A skilled tech can look at your unit and advise you about whether it might be fixed or whether it needs to be replaced.
Reliable Hot Water is a Good Thing
A solid installer will usually have your new water heater running in a fairly short amount of time. A decent time estimate is about three hours.
In that time he will drain, unplug and take away your old unit, position and hook up your new one, test it and tidy up.
Most services are done during the weekday hours, but early evening or weekend appointments might be possible.
Five Familiar Issues
- “The water smells funny”
- “It doesn’t turn on right”
- “It’s got a leak”
- “It does not heat good enough”
- “It’s making a lot of noise”
A traditional water system is pretty simple. There’s a large tank to keep the heated water and a system to heat the water. That’s about it. Cool water is fed into the bottom of the tank and when someone opens up a hot water faucet, heated water is withdrawn from the top.
If there is water on the floor around your tank, you need to figure out where that water came from.
If it came from a water line or plumbing connection above the tank, that’s good news, because that can be repaired easy. But a leak from the tank itself probably can’t be fixed. You will need to begin thinking about replacing it.
Most components, except for the tank itself, can be taken out and replaced.
Common problem sections include the anti-corrosion rod (within the tank), the thermostat controls and parts of the heating system.
Minerals in water can produce a covering of sediment after years of use along the bottom base of the tank which makes noise as it burns.
Too much accumulation of sediment might cause improper heating and lead to the tank wearing out and requiring replacement.
