In the past, tasks like bathing, washing clothes, or doing anything else that required hot water were incredibly labor-intensive, as the water had to be hauled by hand and heated over a fire. Today, however, we are fortunate to enjoy the convenience of modern water heaters, which keep us supplied with all the hot water we need to bathe in comfort and keep clothes and dishes perfectly clean. Of course, water heaters are not immune to damage or malfunctions, which means that they will sometimes need to be repaired. Our team at Hall’s Plumbing is here to provide the expert water heater repair services you need, and in this article, we’ll go over a few ways to determine whether you need to give us a call about this issue.
How to Tell if You Need Water Heater Repair

  • You Have No Hot Water. The most obvious indicator that you need water heater repair is a lack of hot water. If you step into the shower expecting a spray of warm water only to find a freezing cold one instead, then you should definitely give us a call as soon as possible. We’ll figure out what the problem is and implement an effective solution that will give you all the hot water you need.
  • Your Water Temperature Fluctuates Suddenly. Another sign that you need water heater repair is sudden fluctuations in your water temperature. If the water goes from hot to cold then back again without warning, you most likely have a problem with your heater’s dip tube. Fortunately, our experts know exactly how to correct this issue so that you can enjoy a steady stream of water heated to your preferred temperature.
  • Your Water is Rusty. A third sign that you need water heater repair is the presence of rust flakes in your water, and rust around the heater itself. These are both signs that the heater is nearing the end of its life, so you should call our team as soon as possible if you notice this happening to your system.
