Is your water heater in need of maintenance?

South Windsor Water Heater

A water heater is very important to a home, commercial, or industrial property. Without it, there will be no hot water. It is very important to make sure that a water heater is always in tip-top condition. To do this, it is important that a water heater receives regular maintenance, especially when there are signs that something may be wrong.

The most obvious sign that a water heater needs maintenance is when the water isn't getting hot. If the water coming out of the sink, shower and washing machine will not heat up at all, you may have ignored signs for too long. Before this happens, usually, water will not stay hot for a long time. For instance, when someone is taking a shower, they may have hot water for a few minutes, but it will then turn cold. The problem could be the thermostat or have something to do with the heating elements in the water heater. It is always best to have a professional look at it and figure out the problem as soon as possible.

If a person notices leaks coming from the water heater, it is a definite sign that maintenance is needed. Puddles under the water heater, mold around the area and anything else that looks abnormal should immediately be checked out. If a person delays and does not take care of these problems when they should, the water heater may not be able to be repaired, and they will have to buy a new water heater.

A foul smell from the water that comes out from a sink or shower may also be a reason to schedule maintenance. Many times, this is due to the anode rod becoming damaged. Low water pressure and the smell of gas are also signs that maintenance is needed.
