When Should Your Hot Water Heater Be Repaired?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your water heater depends largely on the extent of the problem. If your water heater is only a few years old and runs into a problem, a repair might make the most sense.

Here are some instances when you should consider water heater repair services:

  • Inadequate Hot Water: If you find that your water isn't getting as hot as it used to or you run out of hot water quickly, it's time to have your heater inspected. This may be an issue with a faulty thermostat or heating element.
  • Strange Noises: Unusual noises such as popping, banging or rumbling can indicate sediment buildup in the tank, which can reduce efficiency and lead to damage. A professional will check for and repair issues with the valves, sediment buildup, water pressure and other components.
  • Leaks and Drips: Any signs of a water leak around your water heater require immediate attention. Leaks may indicate an issue with the pressure relief valve or the tank itself. Ignoring leaks can result in costly water damage to your property.
  • Rusty Water: If you notice reddish-brown water coming from your taps, it could be a sign of corrosion inside your water heater tank. Rusty water heaters can be brittle and more susceptible to leaks, but can be repaired if the issue is caught early enough.
  • Fluctuating Water Temperature: Inconsistent water temperature can make daily tasks inconvenient. It may be an issue with the thermostat, heating elements or other components.
  • Pilot Light Problems: For gas water heaters, a pilot light that won't stay lit or keeps going out is a common issue. It can be due to issues with the thermocouple or gas supply.

When there's an issue with the water temperature, hissing, sizzling, or a leak from the pressure relief valve or water supply pipes, a repair is usually the best option. Our technicians will take a look at your unit and determine whether or not it would benefit most from a repair. They'll then review the solution with you and implement fast service to restore your hot water.
