What Water Heater Problems Can Be Fixed?
Water heaters can be difficult to deal with as a homeowner. On one hand, this appliance is vital to your everyday life with how much depends on it. On the other hand, water heaters only have an expected lifespan of around eight years, and any serious breakdown may cause a homeowner to wonder whether they should just retire and replace their heater completely. In some cases this is the better option, but how do you know your situation is one of these instances?
Our water heater repairs team can fix any of the following:
- Faulty heating elements
- Gas connection issues
- Electrical connection problems
- Thermostat problems
- Ignition problems
- Exhaust connection problems
- Code violations or unsafe installations
- Pressure relief valve failure
Water Heater Leaks
The one type of problem we never recommend repairing is a leak in your tank. Tank leaks happen when the water in your tank has corroded and weakened the internal structure of your tank to the point where a crack has developed. In some cases these cracks are small, however, the presence of one usually indicates that there’s a good chance another one may be right behind. Additionally, fixing a leak often involves ruining your heater’s energy-efficient insulation coating. We have to cut through this coating to get to the tank to seal the crack, and your tank will never be as efficient as it was before this repair was completed. Therefore, it’s far more economical to simply replace a leaking tank than it is to repair it.
Why Does My Hot Water Smell?
Have you noticed an off-putting rotten egg smell from your hot water? Your water heater may need to be serviced. Over time, bacteria in your water supply can build up inside of your tank, which can cause your water to take on a sulfuric smell. It’s a good idea to call John Owens Services to schedule a water heater maintenance appointment to flush out the tank.
