Addressing the Most Frequent Water Heater Complications

The most common problem with water heaters is sediment buildup, which can lead to corrosion, reduced efficiency, and, eventually, tank failure. Other common issues include leaking pipes or valves, incorrect temperature settings, and broken thermostats.

Top Indicators That Your Water Heater Needs Replacement

In a big household those hot water demands can multiply fast and the demand for hot water can dramatically increase. But, how do you know when it's time to replace your water heater? Below, we've provided 4 signs to be aware of to avoid having your water heater completely fail.

During an average occupancy of a home, the home owner is going to eventually have to replace the water heater. The problem most home owners face is knowing when your water heater is going to fail.
  • Rusty Water -
    No other color water besides clear should be coming out of any of your faucets.

Rust doesn't typically show up until the end of the life cycle of an older water heater. Give us a call today if you notice rust colored water coming out of your faucets.
  • Water Heater is Leaking -
    As your water heater reaches the end of it's life, the chance of your water heater leaking increases dramatically. If you notice a pool of water around the tank or on the floor around the tank, you'll want to replace your water heater as soon as possible to avoid water damage.
  • Water Heater Not Heating -
