Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
You rely on your water heater daily. Whether you are bathing, washing dishes, or doing laundry, you expect your water heater to provide you with a constant supply of hot water. If your unit breaks down or not working as efficiently as it used to, it is time to contact our team for convenient water heater repair in Katy, TX.
A few common problems that may require professional repair include:
- No hot water: Is your shower producing only cold water? If your water is not an agreeable temperature, it could be your water heater that is the problem. On a gas water heater, check the pilot, thermocouple and the gas control valve. If you don't feel comfortable doing that, give our Katy water heater repair team a call!
- Strange smell or rusty water color: When you turn on your faucet or shower and the water is a dirty brown color or has a rotten egg smell, you may have a corroded pipe or bacteria buildup. Don't hesitate to call us, if you are experiencing either of these things.
- Strange noises: The sound of low rumbling or a popping noise is the sound of the water boiling. The reason for this is that sediment can buildup at the bottom of the tank and cause the tank to overheat and in turn, cause the water to boil. You'll need to contact us for water heater repair in Katy to help flush it out.
- Leaks: If you are seeing leaking around the base of your water heater, it could be a faulty temperature & pressure relief valve. A leaky valve can be repaired, but a leaky hot water heater cannot. You'll need to look into replacing the unit as soon as possible. If you need your unit replaced, don't hesitate to call our team for expert and reliable help!
Water Heater Repair Vs. Replacement
When your water heater breaks down, you're left with two options. You can either opt for water heater repair or replacing your water heater with a new one. If any of the following 5 things apply, you shouldn't repair your water heater and elect replacement.
- Your water heater is old - Tank water heaters usually last about 10 years and tankless can go for 20. If your water heater is older than that and working fine, then you're okay. But if your water heater is older than its life expectancy, don't waste money repairing it.
- Rusty colored water - It could just be that we need to replace your anode rod, but if the rust has spread to your water heater it's very difficult to repair that sufficiently.
- Loud rumbling noises - If you're getting loud rumbling or grinding noises, then your water heater could be near the end of its use. But if it's just snapping and popping then we just need to rinse out your tank.
- You keep running out of hot water - Unfortunately there isn't a water heater repair that will make your tank larger. You either need to use less hot water, upgrade your tank size, or consider a tankless water heater as they don't run out of hot water.
- Your repair is too expensive - A very costly repair, or one repair after another, is usually an indication that water heater repair isn't right for you and you should consider replacement.
