As a homeowner, it’s important to know when to seek help for your water heater repairs. Here are some of the most common causes of water heater problems, to be on the lookout for:
- Too little hot water. Is your water heater producing some hot water – just not enough? This is a common issue Usually, when a water heater isn’t producing enough hot water, this is because the temperature on the tank’s thermostat isn’t turned up enough. (Don’t turn it up too high, though!) If the thermostat is fine, and your heater still isn’t producing hot water, that’s when you know – it’s time to call a plumbing professional.
- Strange noises or icky smells coming from your water heater. If there are nasty smells and weird sounds coming from your heater, this could mean a few different things. Try flushing your tank and filling it with water and hydrogen peroxide, if there’s a smell. Regarding noise, it’s likely that sediment has built up at the bottom of your tank – try draining your tank, to see if this helps. If not, call a pro!
- No hot water at all. Yes, this problem is easy to spot, but it’s crucial to know how to fix this issue! The likely culprit? Your pilot light has blown out. In this case, it’s best to let a plumbing pro handle the problem.
