The Most Common Water Heater Problems
When a water heater is not working as it should, most of the time, it’s a routine problem with an easy fix. However, when the issue is more complicated, there is nothing to worry about – at Van Drunen, we have the water heater repair experience that is needed to tackle even the most complex of water heater problems.
Some of the most common water heater issues that we see, and that we can easily and quickly repair, include:
- Water temperature issues. Many Homewood homeowners who call us complain that they are having temperature issues – either the water is much too hot, switches between hot and cold without warning, or won’t heat up enough for a comfortable shower. Depending upon the details of the water temperature issue, the solution is typically either: resetting the thermostat to the desired temperature level, or replacing the heating element (in the event that there is no hot water at all).
- Strange and loud noises. Another complaint we hear a lot is that a water heater is making strange and loud noises, and won’t let up. Like water temperature issues, this is typically an easy fix. A noisy water heater could be the water heater element deteriorating and giving out, a sign that it is time to replace the water heater element, or could be caused by sediment being burned inside the tank. If the noise is caused by sediment, the solution is a good cleaning to remove it.
Water heater not working. If you don’t have any hot water at all and your water heater appears to be off, it could be a problem with the pilot light. Most of the time, this is corrected simply be relighting the pilot light. If your pilot light will not relight, the problem could be with your gas valve, which is more serious – yet still very fixable – issue. If the pilot light will light, but will not stay lit, the problem may be with the thermocouple, another doable fix.
Leaking heater tanks or valves. A leaking heater tank or valve can be a headache for a homeowner to deal with. If you notice a leak, please contact us immediately to prevent future damage from occurring. A leak can be a big problem if not detected and corrected early. Leaks may be coming from the water lines, the pressure relief valve, the tank, or the drain valve. We will diagnose the issue and get things back to 100 percent again.
