A hot water heater is a necessary household appliance which supplies all your hot water needs, from bathing to cooking. But, there are some common problems shared among many people around the nation as it’ll come to this great commodity.
Usually, you see a leak as there’s a puddle around the bottom of the hot water heater or there might be a trail that leads back to the tank. As a leak occurs, it’s typically because of a crack inside the interior tank and replacement is needed. Over time water minerals may react with steel, and corrode the heating tanks. As this occurs, it’s necessary for a replacement to happen and consult an expert appliance repair contractor.
Not Enough Hot Water/ No Hot Water
One other highly common hot water heater repair problem is no warm water. If you have a gas heater and there isn’t any hot water, it usually can be due to the pilot light going out. You may light the pilot light yourself, but if you haven’t ever done this or are not sure as to how to go about it, don’t hesitate to contact an appliance repair company. But if you discover that you have no hot water with an electric tank, you should check the breaker to see if it has tripped.
Usually as the heater gets older sediment build-up occurs, reducing the quantity of hot water the heater is able to generate. In some cases, flushing the tank is needed as mineral deposits could decrease its efficiency.
