Do I Need Water Heater Repair?
Many times, water heaters will let you know that they’re not working right before they die completely. Keep your eyes open, and you may not have to suffer that worst-case scenario. Here are some things to look for so you can get yours repaired before you run out of hot water.
- Your water heater makes a lot of noise. Do you hear clunks and bonks whenever you start running hot water? This is a sign that something has come loose in your water heater and that needs to be repaired to keep it functioning well. It can mean that your tanks are bumping up against each other, or that a pipe has come loose and is banging something.
- Your hot water runs out early. Do you feel like your hot water isn’t lasting as long as it used to? Maybe you used to be able to shower while you run your dishwasher, and now you can’t. This can be a sign that one of the tanks in your water heater has worn out, or that there is a blockage somewhere. Either way, it’s time to get things fixed before the hot water disappears altogether.
- Your hot water is lukewarm. Do you love searing hot showers, but you haven’t been able to take one in a while? Before you call us, check the temperature of your water heater. Make sure it’s turned up where you want it to be. If that’s fine, then it’s time to check out the water heater and see what has gone wrong.
- Your bills are expensive. If your water or gas/electric bills jump a lot in one month, it’s a sign there’s a problem somewhere and it might be in your water heater. Taking the time to get it checked out can save you hassle and money in the long run.
