Signs Your Water Heater Needs a Repair
If your water heater hasn’t completely stopped working, signs of a problem can be a lot less noticeable. You don’t want problems sneaking up on you, so you can learn to watch out for some smaller signs. Call Morris-Jenkins if you’ve noticed any of these changes in your water heater:
- Bad Water Quality: Water quality issues may have nothing to do with your water heater. But if bacteria is growing in the tank, or the tank is getting rusted, you’ll start to notice foul-smelling or rusty water.
- Changes in Pressure: Build-up in your tank (or in the pipes that are going to and from the tank) can make the water pressure weaker when you run hot water. You’ll wanna think about getting a tanked water heater repair.
- Changes in Temperatures: You want your water temperature somewhere in that sweet spot between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If it’s not, it might just need to be adjusted. But there might also be something wrong. Check the heat setting, and if it’s where it should be but the temperature doesn’t feel right, give us a call.
- Signs of a Leak: Leaks can cause lots of damage fast. If you ever notice water collecting near the water heater or rust on the pipes and tank, take it as a sign to give us a call!
