Speedy Water Heater Repair in Carlsbad CA
There’s no doubt that your home’s water heater is one of the most important pieces of equipment you will ever own. In fact, you rely on this device every single day. When you take a shower, wash dirty laundry, or clean the dishes, you’re relying on the hot water from your water heater to get the job done efficiently.
Accessibility to hot water ensures we, our clothing, and our dishes can be properly sterilized. In turn, we can benefit from potentially better health in the short- and long-run. Water heaters also play an important role in the work industry.
However, when your water heater starts to malfunction, you’ve got yourself in a sticky wicket. As a result, the consequences can be devastating.
Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
Although it can sometimes be clear as daylight when your water heater is acting up, other times, the signs are not so obvious.
If you notice any of the following, it’s a good time to call our professional plumbers out to services your water heater:
- Old age
- Hot water issues
- Discolored water
- Foul smelling or tasting water
- Noisy water heater
- Leaky unit
One of the most obvious signs it might be time to repair or replace your water heater is if it’s 10 or more years old. In some cases, a water heater may last up to 15 years with good maintenance. There’s no harm in calling someone out just to make sure.
The whole point of your water heater is to, well, deliver hot water to your home or business. If you notice your water isn’t as hot as it once was – or worse, there is no hot water in your home – there’s a chance that your water heater needs some fixing.
If this is a problem you only notice when the temperatures outside are cold, you may just need to insulate your tank and pipes.
If you’re water is looking red or brown in color, the pipes of your unit may be corroded, or the inside of your water heater might be rusty. In either scenario, it’s important to call 1st Choice Plumbing to diagnose and resolve the issue.
Although new pipes might cause your water to smell and taste a little off, other times, this may be a sign that the coating within your tank is flaking off. In this case, stop consuming the water, and take advantage of our 24/7 emergency water heater repair services.
A noisy water heater is not only annoying but is an indicator that your unit is having trouble. Crackling or popping sounds coming from your water heater may be a sign that the inside of your tank is being damaged or that your unit is working too hard.
Water should never be pooling around your water heater. If it is, this may mean that the connections, fittings, temperature-pressure-relief (TPR) valve, or the tank itself may be damaged. It’s also possible that the valves of your unit are simply loose.
If you’re experiencing leaks, it’s important to shut off your water heater immediately and call us out rather than troubleshoot the issue yourself. If not fixed, the leak could lead to an explosion, an unsafe water supply, a broken heating element, or even property damage.
