Why Isn't My Water Heater Working?
There are may things that can go wrong with a water heater that can result in a loss of hot water, poor water quality, or other issues. It's important to know what to look out for; the sooner you notice something wrong, the sooner you can call to get it fixed before it completely breaks down on you.
Here are some common reasons why your water heater isn't working properly:
- Lack of maintenance. Not maintaining your water heater can cause a host of problems. When you don't flush your water heater at least once a year, sediment can build up inside of the tank and cause corrosion, which can lead to water heater leaks, weird noises, and rust-colored and/or foul-smelling water.
- The anode rod needs to be replaced. Anode rods are an essential part of your water heater, essentially designed to corrode as a way to protect the actual tank from a similar fate. They don't last forever and should be changed every few years. You'll know it's time when your water appears discolored or starts smelling bad.
- Problems with the pilot light / heating element. If you have a gas water heater, check the pilot light to ensure that it is lit. If you have an electric water heater, check the circuit breaker to see if power to your water heater has been cut off. If nothing is amiss here, you could have a problem with your thermostat or a faulty heating element.
- Your water heater is too small. If you run out of hot water too quickly, it could be that your tank simply isn't large enough for your hot water needs and you should consider upgrading to a larger size.
Tankless Water Heater Installation
These days, tankless water heaters are the most popular choice for new water heater installations. Providing a number of great benefits over conventional models, tankless water heaters are smaller, more energy efficient, and longer lasting. Plus, they provide an endless supply of hot water because it heats water on demand instead of heating and storing a finite amount of water. If you have questions about upgrading to a tankless water heater, we'd be happy to help!
