Repairing or replacing your water heater
If your water heater is showing signs of being on the verge of breaking down, it is time to act. Waking up to find out you have no hot water anywhere at home, can be a “chilling experience”!
Make sure to look for early warning signs that you need to have your water heater look at. Some of the most common signs that you need to have a professional plumber look over your heater are:
- Inconsistent flow of hot water, or lukewarm temperature
This is a indication that the burner or thermostat in your water heater is failing.
- Rust Colored Water
If you’re getting funny colored, or discolored hot water flowing out of your fixtures it could be that your water heater is rusted on the inside.
- Water heater leaks
If you notice moisture or puddling on the pan at the base of your unit, make sure to have it looked at. The pressure release valve may need replacement, or the gaskets may be old and dried out causing the leaks.
