3 signs your water heater needs a tune up

Vernon Water Heater

A hot water heater is a very important appliance in the home that you may not give much though to, until you have a problem. There are some different options for a hot water heater problem and this can include fixing the issue, or replacing the unit entirely.

The first thing that many people notice is that even though the temperature is set on a high level on the water heater, the water is not getting hot enough. This is often noticed in the shower and you may not feel as though you do not have enough hot water to complete a full shower. This can be a sign that there is something wrong with the heater, and a repair needs to be made. You may even notice that there is no hot water coming out of the tank, and this may require something like a new heating element.

You should not notice any noises coming from your hot water heater. If you find that your water heater is making noises, this can be a signal of a deeper issue. A banging noise can often be heard, as well as a creaking or whining noise. This is not a normal part of having a water heater, and something that a professional should explore.

Water pressure can be another common problem that needs to be addressed. If you are turning on faucets at full force on the hot water side and only getting a trickle of water, this may be a sign that you need to have your hot water heater checked. There may be a simple solution that does not require replacing the entire unit.

Sometimes you will find that there are no repairs that can be made to your hot water heater, and in this case we will often suggest that you replace your tank. A new tank will be one that you will not have any issues with, and they often come with a guarantee. You should always explore all of your options, and we can help provide you with some great solutions for any problem you are experiencing with your hot water tank.
