Common Causes of Water Heater Problems
Avoiding trouble is always the best solution—it pays to know a bit about the most common water heater problems so that you can prepare in advance:
- Old water heaters – The majority of water heaters are rated to last anywhere between 8 and 10 years. Past this point you’ll notice much weaker performance, a higher demand for repair, and other complications.
- Not enough water heater maintenance – Particularly if you use a storage tank-type water heater, routine water heater maintenance is critical. Without annual service your water heater will build up excessive sediment, risking problems with corrosion and reduced efficiency.
- Incorrect thermostat settings – Many homeowners don’t realize that they can adjust the thermostat on their water heater. If you feel that your water is too lukewarm, try setting the system a bit higher before calling for repair.
- Damaged or worn-out thermostat – Thermostats for water heaters often wear out long before the water heater itself needs replacing.
Avoid these common water heater problems by making sure you schedule maintenance every year. You can make an appointment with our team online!
Troubleshooting Common Water Heater Issues
We’re always happy to help and provide our water heater repair service. But before you call on our team, try out these simple troubleshooting tips—you might avoid a repair bill with a quick fix:
- Inspect your breaker panel to ensure your breaker hasn’t tripped
- Check your thermostat for correct settings
- If you use a gas water heater, check the pilot light—clean the pilot if needed, and relight
If you’re simply not getting enough hot water, it’s also possible that your water heater is undersized. Maybe your family has grown, or maybe you’ve moved into a new home and your household is larger than the previous owner’s. Either way, an upgrade may be in order!
