Your water heater is normally a quiet hero in your home. The plumbers at Great Lakes are thoroughly trained to detect and resolve issues to provide the highest caliber of professional service to the Michiana area, including water heater repair.
These are three of the most common water heater problems that affect even the most quality units.
Build Up of Sediment
Your location will largely determine how much sediment flows in with your water and settles in the tank. Unfortunately, in our area, a lot of homeowners have hard water that carries a lot of sediment/minerals. If you are experiencing these signs, your tank may be overburdened with buildup:
- Popping Noises – As water on the bottom of your heater pushes up into the sediment, it makes odd noises.
- Slow Warmup – Sediment causes lowered efficiency.
- Bad Smell – The sediment can “cook” in your water heater, creating an unpleasant smell.
In tankless water heaters, sediment builds up on the heat exchanger and interior piping.
A good flush from a professional plumber can clear this problem up.
Incorrect Water Temperature
If there is no hot water, the heating element probably needs a repair. Sometimes it is just a thermostat issue. Either way, our plumbers can help.
Never underestimate the destructive powers of a leak! A tiny drip can eventually soak your floors, where it can’t evaporate, and cause rot and mold. Sometimes leaks are a symptom of a much larger issue. Since leaks don’t go away on their own, it is a good idea to call for help as soon as possible.
If you are experiencing another problem with your water heater that is not listed above, call us at (574) 287-5046 and we will help you resolve it.
