Common Signs Your Water Heater Needs to be Repaired
When something goes wrong with your water heater, you can count on our expert technicians for prompt, professional water heater service. We will inspect your unit to diagnose the issue and see whether it's a better decision to repair or replace it.
Common signs to look out for include:
- Lack of hot water – If your hot water doesn't last through your shower or if it won't get hot at all, it's likely that something is wrong with your water heater. Our Dayton water heater repair experts can help quickly diagnose the issue and restore hot water to your home.
- Loud banging sounds – If your water heater starts making grinding, clanging, or banging noises, that is a good indication that something is awry.
- Rust colored water – If you notice rust colored water coming out of your faucets, there may be a patch of rust inside your water heater tank. If the water seems to have sediment, it's time to schedule your annual water heater flush to keep it properly maintained.
- Rust on top of your water heater – This is typically a sign that you have a leaky pipe over your water heater. You should get it checked out by a professional before the leak becomes worse and causes additional damage.
- Rust on the bottom of your water heater – If your water heater is rusted at the bottom of the tank, it typically means that the metal lining has completely rusted through and you need a replacement ASAP. If you can see rust on the bottom of your tank, there's a good chance it could start leaking in the near future.
- Sudden spike in utility bill – If there is a sudden spike in your water or gas bill, there might be a problem with your water heater. One of our plumbers can come perform a diagnostic service to make sure your water heater is in proper working condition.
- Visible leak in tank – One of the most common signs of water heater issues is a visible leak in the tank itself. Most water heaters last for about 10 years, so if your take has sprouted a leak it's time to consider purchasing a new one.
Our technicians take the time to educate our customers about their plumbing issues. When you have a problem with your water heater, we will explain what we find during our inspection, walk you through the options for repair or replacement, and provide an estimate for your repair. Our service fee will be waived if we perform the work for you.
Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?
One of the most common questions we hear when we come to service a water heater is which will be cheaper, repairing the current unit or replacing it with a new one? The honest answer is that it depends – the up front cost of a new water heater will be considerably higher than any single repair, so you have to take into account a number of factors including:
- Age of the unit
- Frequency of repair
- Severity of the damage
While there isn't a set guide to when you should pay extra for a new unit rather than a repair, a good rule to follow is that if the cost of the repairs is at least half the price of a new unit, you should replace your water heater. Another good thing to keep in mind is the age of the unit – water heaters typically last anywhere from 10-15 years before needing a replacement, so if your unit is getting up there in age you should seriously consider an upgrade. The older a water heater is, the more likely it will require frequent repairs.
Buying a New Water Heater
While we take a minimalist approach whenever possible, there are times when a water heater needs to be replaced. If your water heater is badly corroded, near or past its expected lifespan, breaking down frequently, or leaking from the bottom of the tank, replacement may be needed. When you are ready for an upgrade, there are several options for both standard water heaters with storage tanks and tankless water heaters.
When choosing a new water heater, we can help you consider:
- Standard tank and tankless water heaters
- Size and capacity
- Fuel type, such as electric or gas
- Energy efficiency
Buying a new water heater is a big decision, and your family will live with that decision for several years. There are advantages and disadvantages to both tank and tankless water heaters. We have extensive product knowledge about different types of water heaters. Our technicians are happy to fully explain the options, help you compare products, and select the right water heater for your home.
