4 Most Common Water Heater Repairs!
Like everything, water heaters will break. Even with the most careful use and diligent maintenance schedule, parts inevitably degrade and ware down. To help our customers be less surprised when the unfortunate does happen, we’ve put our years of experience to use to provide this list of the 4 most common water heater problems:
- Leaks: As is the nature of any device that is meant to hold large amounts of water, leaks are one of the most common issues that our technicians find themselves repairing. Water heater leaks can be caused by several issues and occur in a variety of locations. To troubleshoot leaks yourself, the best method involves checking the connections and fastenings where the leak is occurring and making sure they are fully threaded and secured.
- Issues With Water Temperature: Water temperature issues are another common issue we face and can be caused by a wide range of factors. A water heater may be failing to heat water properly if there are issues with the power/gas source, an insufficiently sized tank could fail to provide water that is sufficiently hot or the water could be too hot because of an improperly set thermostat.
- Discolored Water: Water from a heater should be clear and free of debris. Discolored water can indicate corrosion inside your tanks and generally requires a professional to determine a course of action.
- Strange Noises: Strange noises are often caused by failure to do regular flushes and by allowing sediment and minerals to accumulate at the bottom of the tank.
Water heaters are fairly simple devices and generally, when things go wrong, they’ll fall within this fairly narrow window of issues. Regardless of what kind of issue you may be facing, we guarantee that our professionals will have the knowledge and experience to provide the best solution for your water heater leak in Edmond!
The Importance Of Water Heater Maintenance
Like any mechanical device in your home, the performance of a water heater can be greatly improved by yearly maintenance via annual flushings. It’s recommended that this process be done once a year and is fairly simple to perform — for help, refer to our step-by-step guide on how to flush your water heater.
Without regular flushes, sediment can accumulate on the inside of your tank, creating a layer of unnecessary insulation which makes it more difficult to heat water in general.
