You can’t imagine life without a water heater, which is why it’s one of the most crucial appliances. On the other hand, it’s the one we tend to take for granted until anything goes wrong. You use your water heater on a daily basis for things like taking showers, washing dishes, brushing your teeth, and more, so it’s important to make sure it’s efficient and in good working order. In light of this, as the go-to Inland Empire plumbing experts, we’ve compiled a list of the most prevalent issues associated with water heaters.
A Sluggish Rise in Water Temperature
When your water heater isn’t as efficient as it once was, you’ll have to wait longer for your shower to get hot again. It’s important to keep your water heater’s recovery time to a minimum of a few seconds at all times. To avoid overloading your water heater, which could cause it to shut down if you run too many hot water appliances at once, try to limit the number of hot water uses at once. If you live in The Inland Empire and it takes several minutes for your tap water to get warm, you should contact a plumber that specializes in water heater repair and drain cleaning.
No More Steaming Showers for You!
Your water heater may cease generating hot water for a variety of reasons. Make sure the water heater is receiving electricity by checking the circuit breaker if it is an electric one. If your water heater is older than 15 years, you should probably replace it. A malfunctioning thermostat is another potential cause of no hot water in your residence. Since electric water heaters include a backup thermostat, if one breaks, the water heater will still function normally and you won’t be without hot water. If your water heater needs repair, your plumber can advise you on the best course of action.
Bad Odor in the Water
Bacteria in your hot water tank is to blame for the foul odors coming from your sink or tub. Flush out your water heater on a regular basis to get rid of the stale smell in your home’s water.
There must be some underlying problems with your water heater if it is making strange, amusing rumbling noises. Noises can also be brought by by silt and mineral deposits settling to the bottom of the water heater. Get in touch with a professional plumber to investigate and repair the problem.
