Common Water Heater Problems
If you find out your water heater is leaking, turn off your home’s water valve. It’s typically situated in your basement, near furnace or water heater, or below your kitchen sink.
Then contact Fras-Air/General Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at 908-448-2154 immediately. Even a little leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be signaling it’s time for a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting zeroor not enough warm water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, there could be an issue with the pilot light.
If you’re not confident in how to investigate this, get in touch with us. We’ll manage the problem.
A lack of hot water may also be a sign that your water heater is on its last leg and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be too small. We can help you figure out your usage and solve the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signals can show that your water heater is going out:
- Popping noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, milky-colored or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water
- Leaking pressure relief valve
As water heaters usually hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can result in a damaging flood.
Like with some other appliance, annual maintenance is critical. We suggest reading up on our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid issues with your water heater.
