How do you know that you need a water heater repair? If you’re experiencing any of these problems, your water heater might need service soon:
When sediment builds up in a water heater, it can cause clanking, popping or crackling noises. Flushing your system regularly will prevent sediment from building up. This is particularly important because sediment buildup can damage your water heater and shorten the life of your unit.
Inconsistent hot water:
Does your water stop running hot after a short period of time, or only run lukewarm? If so, that may mean that your hot water heater needs to be repaired because it has taken too much wear and tear. It may have a damaged or worn out interior component.
Rusty water coming from the hot water heater:
If your hot water runs reddish or brown-colored, this could mean that your water heater has rusted from the inside. This is particularly problematic because rust and corrosion lead to the water heater leaking.
Emergency? No Problem
Some water heater repairs need to be handled immediately before there is serious damage to your home.
Your water heater repair may be an emergency if you notice any of the following problems:
Water leaking out of the water heater tank:
Leaks can happen if the water heater is cracked or if the fittings around your water heater have split. A leak in your water heater will also cause poor pressure and lukewarm or inconsistent water temperatures. If you notice either of those issues and, upon checking your water heater, see water pooling around the tank, call Astro Heating & Cooling immediately.
Water from the hot water heater smells bad:
Bacteria in your water heater tank can cause the water to stink. This happens most often in homes that draw their water from well water, but can occasionally happen in other cases as well. If you’re noticing a smell from your hot water, contact us right away in order to make sure that your water is safe for your family.
A badly damaged or aged water heater has the potential to explode from excess pressure and damage your home. If you need emergency water heater repairs, contact Astro Heating & Cooling right away. Our expert technicians will come to your home quickly in order to service your unit.
We’re also equipped to handle older gas water heaters in addition to newer electric models.
