Signs You Need Water Heater Repair

If you suspect that your water heater is not functioning properly, it's important to be aware of signs that may indicate the need for repair. 

Here are some common signs that your water heater may require attention:

  • Lack of Hot Water: If your water heater is not producing hot water or if the water is not reaching the desired temperature, it could be a sign of a malfunction.
  • Inadequate Hot Water Supply: If you're running out of hot water more quickly than usual, or if the hot water supply is inconsistent, there may be a problem with the heating element or another component.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual noises such as popping, rumbling, or banging sounds coming from the water heater may indicate sediment buildup or a problem with the heating element.
  • Leaking Water: Any signs of water pooling around the base of the water heater could be indicative of a leak. Leaks can be caused by a variety of issues, including a faulty pressure relief valve or a leaking tank.
  • Rusty Water: If the hot water appears discolored or has a rusty tint, it may suggest corrosion inside the tank. This could be a sign that the anode rod needs replacement or that the tank itself is deteriorating.
  • Water Heater Age: The age of your water heater can be a factor. Most water heaters have a lifespan of around 8 to 12 years. If your unit is approaching or exceeding this age, it may be more prone to issues and could benefit from inspection or replacement.
  • Fluctuating Water Temperature: If you notice sudden changes in water temperature, such as hot water turning cold or vice versa, it could be a sign of a malfunctioning thermostat or other heating element issues.
  • High Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without an apparent cause could be linked to an inefficient or malfunctioning water heater. If the system is working harder to heat water, it may consume more energy.
  • Pilot Light Issues: For gas water heaters, issues with the pilot light, such as it going out frequently, may indicate a problem with the thermocouple or gas supply.

If you observe any of these signs, it's advisable to contact a professional plumber or water heater repair service to assess and address the issue promptly. Regular maintenance can also help prevent problems and extend the life of your water heater.

Water Heater FAQs


Who do you call for water heater repair?

Your best bet for water heater repair is a licensed plumber.  They're trained and equipped to diagnose and fix all sorts of water heater problems, from leaks and malfunctions to issues with temperature control.  Plus, plumbers can handle the gas or electrical components involved in most water heaters, ensuring a safe and proper repair. If you're unsure about the type of water heater you have or the extent of the problem, a plumber from 702 PlumbAIR can assess the situation and recommend the best course of action.

How often should you flush your water heater?

The frequency of flushing sediment from your water heater depends on various factors such as water quality, usage patterns, and the type of water heater you have. However, a general guideline is to flush the tank at least once a year to maintain optimal performance and prevent sediment buildup. 

Here are some factors to consider when determining how often to flush your water heater:

  • Water Quality: If you live in an area with hard water or high sediment content, more frequent flushing may be necessary to prevent excessive buildup.
  • Usage Patterns: Homes with higher hot water usage may require more frequent flushing to keep the tank clean and efficient.
  • Manufacturer Recommendations: Check the manufacturer's guidelines for your specific water heater model, as they may provide recommendations for flushing frequency.
  • Visible Signs: Keep an eye out for signs of sediment buildup, such as discolored water or unusual noises from the tank. If you notice these signs, it may indicate that flushing is needed regardless of the schedule.
  • Professional Inspection: Periodically have a qualified plumber or HVAC technician inspect your water heater to assess sediment levels and recommend an appropriate flushing schedule based on your specific circumstances.

Ultimately, the goal is to prevent sediment buildup and maintain the efficiency and longevity of your water heater. By considering these factors and staying proactive about flushing sediment from your water heater, you can ensure that it continues to operate reliably and efficiently for years to come. 

Are water heater leaks fixable?

Leaks in a water heater can be fixable, but it depends on the source and severity.  Simple leaks from loose connections or the pressure relief valve might be tightened or replaced.  However, leaks from the tank itself typically indicate corrosion or internal damage.  Since water heater tanks can't be patched, a full replacement might be necessary.  For any leak, calling 702 PlumbAIR is recommended to diagnose the cause and determine the best course of action.


Should I buy a gas water heater or an electric water heater?

Choosing between a gas and electric water heater depends on your priorities:

  • Cost: Gas heaters are generally cheaper to operate due to lower fuel costs, but have a higher upfront cost due to installation requirements. Electric heaters are cheaper to install but might have higher running costs.
  • Performance: Gas heaters heat water faster and have a quicker recovery time, ideal for large families. Electric heaters are more energy-efficient with minimal heat loss.
  • Availability: Gas requires a gas line, so electric heaters are better if you lack existing gas infrastructure.
  • Safety: Both can be safe with proper maintenance. Gas heaters require proper ventilation to avoid carbon monoxide risks.

Consider your budget, hot water needs, and existing setup to make the best choice!

What are the benefits to upgrading to a tankless water heater?

Upgrading to a tankless water heater offers several benefits:

  • Endless Hot Water: Unlike traditional tank heaters with limited storage, tankless models heat water on demand, providing a continuous supply for showers, laundry, and dishes. No more running out of hot water halfway through!
  • Energy Savings: Tankless heaters only use energy when you need hot water, eliminating standby heat loss from constantly keeping a tank warm. This translates to potentially significant savings on your energy bills.
  • Space Efficiency: Tankless heaters are compact, taking up much less space than traditional models. They can be wall-mounted, freeing up valuable floor space in your home.
  • Durability: With no tank to leak or burst, tankless heaters can last longer than traditional options, requiring less maintenance overall.

However, there are also some things to consider:

  • Higher Upfront Cost: Tankless heaters are typically more expensive to purchase and install compared to traditional models.
  • Installation Requirements: Depending on your existing gas line size and water flow rate, modifications might be needed for proper installation.
  • Lower Flow Rate: While endless, the hot water flow rate from a tankless heater might be lower than a traditional tank heater, potentially impacting powerful showers or running multiple hot water sources simultaneously.
