Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repaired

No appliance is designed to last forever, and when it comes to your water heater, you can expect to replace it every seven to 10 years. During the lifespan of the appliance, it may require periodic repairs to ensure reliability, enhance performance, and avoid a disruption in services. Contact Chapman for expert water heater services in Indianapolis if you notice any of the following signs:

Lack of Hot Water

If you turn on your shower or kitchen faucet to discover you have no hot water, it is a sure sign that you need water heater repair. (Chances are, your water heater gave off one or more clues of the impending break down.)

A water heater that isn’t producing hot water is, quite simply, failing to do its job. Correct the issue by getting in touch with the water heater repair experts at Chapman.

Fluctuating Water Temperatures

Inconsistent temperatures might be a sign that mineral deposits have accumulated around the heating element, or that it has failed and may need to be replaced.

Leakage From Water Heater

Even the smallest leak can turn into a big problem if left untreated, and over time may lead to mold or bacteria growth. Check the area around your water heater on a regular basis, and call us for service if you notice any liquid on the floor around the appliance. Carefully inspect the tank and connections to see if you can detect exactly where the liquid is coming from. If the source of the leak is not obvious, try cleaning up the water and checking back every hour to see if it reoccurs.

Low Hot Water Pressure

Routine maintenance, including an annual flushing service, can help to prevent the accumulation of mineral deposits, but if left alone, they can eventually build up in sufficient quantities to cause a blockage in your pipes, reducing the pressure of the water coming from the tank. Once you get your water heater repaired, consider having regular maintenance performed on your system to limit the fixes and maintenance that you might need in the future.

Unusual Sounds

If you notice any loud or unusual sounds emanating from the heater, such as rumbling, popping, clanging, or cracking, there may be a buildup of sediment at the bottom of the tank. This can cause the appliance to overheat and should be addressed before further damage can occur.

Discoloration in Water

Visible signs of rust or metallic tasting water that comes only from the tap is a sign that your water heating system may be corroding on the inside and may need to be replaced. Rusty water is dangerous to what it comes in contact with, like your clothes or even your skin.
