Signs Your Water Heater Needs Professional Service

Water heaters are essential for providing hot water for your cleaning and cooking needs all year round. However, due to the constant stress they endure, it's no surprise that they eventually break down. You may only realize there's a problem when you're met with cold water from your water heater. To prevent major headaches and costly repairs, it's important to look for any signs of distress from your water heater. 

Common indications that something is wrong include: 

  • Fluctuating water temperature: If your tankless water heater's temperature keeps changing despite adjustments, there's likely a problem caused by mineral deposits around the heating components.
  • Reduced pressure: Lower water pressure in your tankless water heater suggests a problem, usually caused by mineral deposits blocking the pipes or a poor design.
  • Leaking system: While it may seem obvious, many homeowners overlook inspecting their water heaters until it's too late. Leaks can lead to corrosion and pose risks to children, electrical appliances, and pets. Regularly scanning for leaks can help identify them early on.
  • Strange noises: While some noise is normal, an increase in frequency indicates a need for repair. Odd sounds occur due to mineral deposits near the heating components, eventually weakening the water heater and causing leaks.
  • Rusty water: Discolored water in both hot and cold taps indicates an issue with the water pipes. However, if only the hot water tap has rusty water, it's time to inspect the water heater as the metal pole may be damaged.
  • Lukewarm water: Lukewarm water when the settings haven't been changed, or the weather is not cold may indicate a need for water heater repair.
  • Quick depletion of hot water: If you run out of hot water rapidly, it's a sign that the water heating elements aren't functioning correctly, indicating a more serious problem requiring repair.
  • Overdue maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential for a well-functioning water heater. If it has been over a year since your last inspection, it's time to have it checked again. Detecting and repairing problems early can help prevent further damage and may even necessitate a water heater replacement.

If you notice any of these problems, call us immediately. One of our specialists will carefully inspect your water heater to determine what the problem is and provide a cost-effective solution.

Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

Investing in a new water heater is a significant decision that many homeowners hope to avoid, often wishing that a simple repair could rectify their existing system's issues. However, there are instances where the water heater's condition is beyond repair, and the most viable solution is a complete replacement. 

The following factors should be considered when deciding between repairing or replacing your water heater:

  • Age of the water heater: As a general rule of thumb, if your water heater is over 10 years old, replacing it might be more cost-effective than repairing it.
  • Efficiency: Older models are often less efficient than newer ones. A new water heater could be a worthwhile investment in the long run due to the savings on your energy bills.
  • Frequency of breakdowns: If your water heater requires frequent repairs, it could be a sign that it's time for a replacement.
  • Quality of hot water: If your water isn't as hot as it used to be or if the hot water runs out quickly, a new water heater may be required.

At Salt City Plumbing, Heating, and Air, our experienced team will comprehensively analyze your current water heater's condition to help make this crucial decision. We place our customers' needs first and provide honest advice guided by integrity rather than profit.
