It’s time to check your water heater
The climate is changing and its time to check whether your water heater is working properly or not. Below are some of the most common issues homeowners may experience in regards to water heaters and hot water.
If your electric hot water heater is slow to heat, runs out of hot water faster than it used to, or doesn’t deliver any hot water at all, there’s a need for getting it rectified by an expert. Check whether your water heater is experiencing the following problems:
Several types of electric water heater issues can cause problems with water temperature. Symptoms can range from no hot water to inadequate hot water to water that’s too hot.
A low, rumbling noise can indicate boiling water, caused by overheating due to sediment build-up. Treat this by flushing the water heater.
Water leaks can be caused by a faulty temperature and pressure relief valve, excessive pressure, overheating, a stuck valve, a leak from an overhead or adjacent plumbing connection, loose heating element bolts, a bad gasket or a leaking water tank.
Discoloration or odor
Rust-colored water can be caused by corrosion inside a glass-lined tank or a failing sacrificial anode rod. A decaying sacrificial anode rod can also release hydrogen, causing a smell like rotten eggs.
