Common Water Heater Problems

Even reliable, well-maintained water heaters can occasionally develop issues that require professional repair. 

Common water heater problems include:

  • Leaks: These can occur slowly from small cracks or seals over time or rapidly from burst pipes or tanks.
  • Sediment buildup: Minerals from water can accumulate as sediment in the tank or heating elements, reducing efficiency. 
  • Rust and corrosion: Internal components corroding from age or mineral deposits lead to problems. 
  • Noisy operation: Unusual noises like banging or rumbling could signify failing components or sediment accumulation.
  • Insufficient hot water: If you run out of hot water quickly, it can be due to low thermostat settings, small tank size, or high demand.
  • Faulty thermostats: Inaccurate water temperature regulation leads to unpredictable changes in the hot water supply.
  • Clogged heat traps: Debris blocking the heat traps can reduce hot water volume and require cleaning.

Types of Water Heaters We Service

Our team has extensive experience servicing all makes and models of water heaters, including:

  • Traditional tank water heaters store a large volume of hot water in a tank, ranging from 30 to 80 gallons, and keep the water hot until needed. 
  • Tankless types heat water directly without a storage tank, offering energy savings and a continuous hot water supply.
  • Hybrid heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from the air or ground to heat the water, making them more energy-efficient than conventional models.
  • Gas condensing water heaters capture heat from the exhaust gases and use it to preheat the incoming cold water. 
  • Solar water heaters are an eco-friendly heating option that uses renewable solar energy.

The average lifespan of a water heater generally ranges from 8-12 years. However, high usage, hard water, poor maintenance, and hot climates can decrease its lifespan. Our team is always available to offer professional advice on your home’s best water heater options. We can help you positively impact the environment while enjoying reliable hot water.
