After all, you rely on your water heater to bathe in comfort, as well as to perform essential tasks like doing your laundry and washing your dishes. In this article, our team will go over a few warning signs to watch out for in order to tell when your water heater is acting up—if you notice any of these signs, we encourage you to call us right away to get the expert water heater repair services you need.
- Your Water is Cold. The first and most obvious sign that you need water heater repair is a lack of hot water. If you turn on the hot water tap only to have water emerge from your tap or showerhead lukewarm at best, then something is wrong with your heater.
- Your Water Isn’t Clear. Another warning sign that you need water heater repair services is your water taking on a brownish tint. While many people assume that this means that there’s a problem with their water supply, in many cases, the problem is caused by your water heater. The brownish coloring is often caused by the heater’s tank starting to rust, and the rust particles then dissolving in the water and giving it that discolored appearance.
- Your Heater Has a Leak. A third clear sign that you need water heater repairs is the heater itself starting to leak. If your tank is leaking even a little, you should call our team right away to get the problem taken care of.
