Your water heater is important in your home, it is one of the major appliances where most people do not realize how important it is until something goes wrong. It is essential for the overall comfort of your home. We take automatic dish and clothes washing and hot water for granted, until something goes wrong. These are a few of the water heater problems to watch out for.
Sign #1 – There Is A Rise In Your Utility Bills
One of the primary issues that you are going to have with a water heater is the fact that it becomes much more expensive to produce hot water in your home. Because the water heater plays an important role in your electricity/gas bill, a sudden spike in your overall utility bills might indicate that you have a problem with your water heater.
Sign #2 – Strange Noises From Your Water Heater
Remember that your water heater does not actually boil water, which would be a rather dangerous situation to be involved in. So if it sounds like the water is boiling from the water heater, it might mean that your water heater needs service. Oftentimes this issue is because there is a build-up of sediment inside of your tank. If it sounds like your water heater is turning off and on and there are inexplicable sounds, it is a good idea to have a professional look at your water heater.
Tip #3 – You Do Not Have Enough Hot Water
Taking a cold shower every morning as you get ready for work, that does not sound extremely appetizing does it? Both showering and bathing are two different activities that rely on having enough hot water. Because both of these activities rely on having hot water, this is where you might notice the issue at first.
If you have a relatively new system and you notice a gradual, minor loss in water temperature, chances are that you need a tune-up or have your system flushed. If you have an older system (ten years old or more), chances are that you might need a water heater replacement rather than relying on repairs.
