Hot Water Heater Problems

While taking a shower or washing dishes in the sink, have you wondered if you have hot water heater problems? Have you noticed that the hot water fades away sooner than usual? Do you have to continually increase the hot water flow and decrease the cold water flow to maintain the water temperature that you are wanting? These could be signs that you need have hot water heater problems. It could be time to have your hot water heater checked for issues, especially if it is an older heater.

An Obvious Sign

If you use a sink or shower regularly, you should not see rusty or dirty water. Though there are several factors that can produce such dirty water, including rusting pipes or a dirty water supply, these may be a sign that you have water heater problems. If the heater coil inside the water heater is not functioning correctly, this may result in rusty water entering your system. Rust build-up in a hot water heater can be very problematic, especially in older models.

Time to Buy a New Hot Water Heater?

If you believe that you have hot water heater problems, this does not necessarily mean that you have to purchase a new unit. Sometimes the pressure of water entering the hot water heater increases creating a leak. In this case, a simple fix would be to install a regulator in the inlet section to reduce the pressure entering the heater.

If sediment has built up in your hot water heater, a simple draining of the heater may be the best solution. The sediment may also create irreversible damage to your heater, in which case the best option would be to replace the heater. There are many variables to consider with a faulty hot water heater and the best course of action is always to have a professional plumber analyze the situation.

Opportunity Amidst the Problem

If you believe you have hot water heater problems of any type, a quick inspection by a professional plumber can end up saving you more money than you may think. Hot water heaters that are 7-10 years of age may have problems requiring the replacement of the heater. The troubled heater is more than likely costing you more and more money each month due to lack of efficiency and the wasting of precious energy needed to heat the water. A new energy-saving heater will instantly save you money while providing you with a steady stream of hot water throughout your home or office.
