When to Call Our Westchester County Water Heater Repair Team
Water heater repairs are not just a matter of convenience— they’re a matter of safety. In addition to the water damage water heaters can cause when they spring a leak, problems with your water heater’s pressure can actually cause the tank to explode. Of course, this is very unlikely, but it is still worth doing everything you can to make sure your water functions at peak operation and lasts for years to come. At VP’s Plumbing, Heating & Air, our water heater technicians are trained to provide top-notch maintenance and repairs, helping your equipment remain energy-efficient and perform consistently from season to season.
Top signs there’s a problem with your water heater include:
- Pooling water/visible leaks: If you find water pooling at the base of your water heater tank, or notice a leak anywhere else on your unit, make sure to call an experienced water heater pro immediately. Leaks are usually a sign of a significant internal failure in your water heater, and your system will not be able to function until this issue is taken care of. While you can check the screws and connectors and pipes on your water heater to see if you can find the source of the leak, you should always disconnect your heater from its power supply – whether electrical or gas – before doing this. You will still need to call for a repair, but you may at least be able to get to the root of the problem sooner rather than later.
- Poor water pressure/sudden water pressure changes: If you are consistently experiencing poor water pressure in your shower or throughout your home, or your water pressure has recently changed, seemingly for no apparent reason, chances are there’s a problem with your water heater. In most cases, pressure changes mean your water tank has simply accumulated too much sediment, or scale, from hard water. You can either flush this build-up out on your own, or call a technician to do it for you. If the problem persists, however, it is important to call a professional to perform a thorough diagnostic of your water heater, and potentially your larger plumbing system.
- Strange-smelling/discolored water: Funky smelling or tasting water is not something any homeowner wants to deal with, and if you have recently found that your water has a sulfuric, rotten egg-like odor, your water heater may be to blame. This could be because your system’s anode rod, which helps prevent mineral and bacterial build-up, has worn out. Sometimes when this happens, bacteria can start to grow in your water heater, leading to that foul water smell. Another indicator that you’re dealing with a corroded anode rod is rusty, discolored water. The question is, does all your water smell bad, or just your hot water? If all your water is nasty, then the problem lies elsewhere in your plumbing, or with your municipal water supply (in which case you will probably want to install a whole-home water filtration system.) If, however, the smell is specifically tied to your hot water, you will need to flush the tank out and/or replace the anode rod. If the problem persists or for assistance in this process, hire a water heater plumber.
- Loud noises: Water heaters are notorious for making all kinds of noises, and in many cases, these noises are perfectly harmless. However, you should still pay attention to loud water heater sounds, such as cracking, popping, screeching, gurgling, or banging. Oftentimes, that banging is just a sign your heater is dealing with too much mineral build-up, and the burning sediment is causing what sounds like a mini-explosion. While this can be taken care of easily by flushing out your tank, other times, water heater sounds indicate a more intense problem. You could be dealing with a worn down heating element, or even a pressure issue. Check your heater’s pressure relief valve first to make sure your system is not in a dangerous position, then disconnect the power source and call a technician to inspect your water heater.
- Inconsistent hot water: If you are having trouble getting hot water from your system, or your system has stopped providing you with hot water at all, it’s definitely time to call for a repair. There are of course things you can do on your own to improve your water heater’s performance, such as adjusting the thermostat to suit your needs or draining the tank for more consistent temperatures, but on a basic level, if your water heater isn’t doing its main job then it’s usually a good idea to call a water heater expert, like one of our team members at VP’s Plumbing, Heating & Air. Remember, the average tank water heater only lasts 10-12 years, so if your system is older or has not been well-maintained, you should never hesitate to hire a technician to help keep it running—or to replace it altogether, if need be.
