The Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Give us a call when you spot any of these warning signs: 

  • Inconsistent water temperature: Your water heater’s fluctuating temperatures may indicate a failing heating element or thermostat issue.
  • Strange noises: Hearing unusual sounds, such as popping, rumbling, or banging, from your water heater can signal sediment buildup or other mechanical problems.
  • Discolored water: Rusty or cloudy water coming from your hot taps can suggest corrosion within the tank, pointing to a potential need for repair or replacement.
  • Leaking water: Any signs of water pooling around your water heater or visible leaks from the unit are serious issues that call for immediate attention.
  • Low hot water pressure: Reduced pressure from your hot water taps can be caused by sediment buildup or issues within the plumbing connected to the heater.
  • Frequent cycling: If your water heater is turning on and off frequently, it could indicate an underlying electrical issue or a malfunctioning part that needs repair.

The Benefits of Installing a New Water Heater

Whether you go tankless or traditional, there are several advantages to putting a new water heater in your residential or commercial property. Benefits like these: 

  • Improved energy efficiency: Modern water heaters are designed to be more energy-efficient, reducing your utility bills and minimizing environmental impact. Tankless models, in particular, heat water on demand, further enhancing efficiency.
  • Enhanced performance: Upgrading to a new unit typically means better performance and fewer issues with water pressure, heating speed, and overall reliability. 
  • Cost savings: We offer financing to help you with the initial investment. After that, the savings on energy bills and reduced maintenance costs help you to start recouping your costs. 
  • Enhanced home value: Making your home more appealing to potential buyers might offer an even bigger payoff on your investment. 
  • Longer lifespan: New water heaters tend to have longer lifespans when compared to their older counterparts. 
  • Advanced features: New water heaters come with advanced features like digital thermostats, Wi-Fi connectivity for remote control, and better safety mechanisms, offering greater convenience and peace of mind.


Tips for Extending the Life of Your Hot Water Heater

No system can last forever, and nothing is entirely free of problems. However, property owners can help their water heater last longer, and with less trouble by following these tips: 

  • Flush the tank: Periodically flush your traditional water heater tank to remove sediment buildup. 
  • Adjust the thermostat: Set the thermostat to 120°F to prevent overheating and reduce energy consumption. Lower temperatures can also slow down sediment accumulation. 
  • Install a water softener: If you have hard water, consider installing a water softener to reduce mineral buildup. Hard water can accelerate sediment accumulation and decrease efficiency.
  • Check the anode rod: Inspect the anode rod every few years and replace it if it’s heavily corroded. This rod prevents rust by attracting corrosive elements, thus protecting the tank.
  • Test the pressure relief valve: The valve prevents excess pressure buildup, which can be dangerous and damaging to the unit.
  • Avoid overloading: Be mindful of the number of appliances running simultaneously that require hot water to prevent undue strain on the system.

It’s also a good idea to schedule a routine water heater maintenance check through our Riverside office. We’ll work hard to keep you ahead of the curve.
