Common Water Heater Problems
If you discover your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s typically located in your basement, by furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then contact Church Services at 713-396-3760 without delay. Even a small leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting it’s time for a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting noor very little heated water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, something could be wrong with the pilot light.
If you don’t know how to figure this out, give us a call. We’ll manage the problem.
A lack of hot water may also indicate that your water heater is giving out and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be too small. We can help you determine how much you use and take care of the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can be an indication that your water heater is going out:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Dirty, cloudy or rusty water
- Water reeks
- Leaking pressure relief valve
As water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can cause a damaging flood.
Like with any other appliance, annual maintenance is important. We suggest reading up on our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid issues with your water heater.
