You rely on your home’s water heater to provide warm or hot water whenever you need or want it. The last thing you want is to look forward to a hot shower and instead face a blast of freezing water. If you’re experiencing a problem with your water heater, contact the Furlong heating experts at Chud Air Conditioning, Heating, and Duct Cleaning.
Common Water Heater Problems
- If the water that comes out of a faucet or shower head is too hot or too cold, your water heater may need to be serviced. A technician can figure out if the problem is due to the power supply, thermostat, or heating element.
- Leaks are common and can have a variety of causes. The solution may be as simple as tightening a loose connection, or it may be necessary to replace the water heater.
- If water coming out of your faucets has a foul odor, it may be due to an accumulation of bacteria. You can try flushing and cleaning the tank. If that doesn’t help, have the water heater inspected.
- Rusty water is a sign that the water heater’s tank is corroding. We may be able to fix the problem in some cases, or we may need to install a new water heater.
- Sediment can build up and burn, which can cause a water heater to make strange noises. Flushing the water heater may solve the problem. If it doesn’t, the heating element may be failing, and you may need a new water heater.
