Common Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

When your water heater breaks down, it can bring your entire home to a halt. But many water heater malfunctions can be repaired fast without heavy costs.

Common symptoms to look out for include:

  • Funny smells in your water – Sediment buildup in the bottom of your tank could be contributing to the bad smells and tastes in your water supply. Sediments should be rinsed away during regular maintenance to prevent premature corrosion.
  • Cuts off too quickly or keeps running – When your thermostat is broken, your water heater can be tricked into thinking it has done its job, so it turns on and off. Your broken thermostat can be easily replaced by an experienced Plano water heater repair technician.
  • Running heater with no hot water – This issue is usually due to a malfunctioning heating element. A professional can quickly replace your water heater’s element to get it sufficiently heating again quickly.
  • Tank leaks – If your water heater tank is leaking, it’s time to replace your existing system. Damaged or corroded water heater tanks aren’t able to be repaired and often lead to destructive floods in the home when not replaced quickly.

Why is My Water Heater Leaking?

Discovering that your water heater is leaking can be alarming - if left unchecked for too long, it has the potential to cause serious (and costly) water damage or flooding. Water heater leaks won't go away on their own and will only get worse with time, so be sure to call a qualified plumber as soon as possible if you notice anything wrong.

Water heaters can leak for the following reasons:

  • Excessive pressure inside of the tank
  • Loose connections
  • A faulty drain valve
  • Corrosion from sediment buildup

Water heater leaks can sometimes be repaired depending on where the leak is coming from. Examples of repairable water heater leaks include leaks from a drain line or valve. If, however, your tank is leaking from the bottom, you will need to replace your water heater because it is already irreparably corroded on the inside.

Why Does My Hot Water Run Out So Quickly?

Have you ever stepped into a warm shower only to have the water go cold after a few minutes? If so, there might not necessarily be anything wrong with your water heater - you may just have one that's the wrong size for your needs. Think of all the ways your household uses hot water: washing dishes, washing clothes, showering, etc. Now think back to what you did this morning. How many people took a shower? Did you start a load of laundry or start the dishwasher before you went to take your shower? It's possible that all of the hot water in your tank was used and will take time to replenish.

So how can you get more hot water and avoid this problem? There are two things to consider: either upgrade to an on-demand (tankless) water heater or consider purchasing a larger tank-style water heater. For a two to three person household, a 40-50 gallon tank should suffice. Families of three to four should have a 50-60 gallon tank, while families of five or more should have a 60-80 gallon tank.

The Importance of Maintaining Your Water Heater

Water heaters require periodic maintenance for maximum performance and longevity. It's a good idea to have your water heater flushed at least once a year to remove any sediment that has built up in the tank from the minerals in hard water.

Water heater maintenance provides the following benefits:

  • Increases efficiency. Calcium buildup makes it harder for your water heater to do its job. Flushing it out will help your appliance heat more efficiently.
  • Maintains volume of hot water. Sediment buildup can reduce the amount of hot water your water heater tank is able to produce. Maintenance can help you get the most from your tank.
  • Extends life. Your water heater is a big investment, so make sure to maintain it regularly to get more years of service before you have to replace it.
