Top 3 Reasons Your Water Heater Needs a Check-Up
February 24, 2016 • by Dave Jones Inc
There are a lot of ways to get into hot water, especially when the hot water heater goes out at your house. If you have kids you’re all too aware of this fact. When there’s no hot water they start to wander around like angry, rank zombies. In the middle of winter, a cold shower will feel a lot worse; the laundry will start to pile up and anyone with long hair will be out for blood.
1. Signs of leaking water – Unexplained puddles of water on the floor or water dripping? This can be a telltale sign that your unit has developed a leak and it’s highly recommend you call a licensed plumber to address the problem before the leak gets worse.
2. Banging/Clunking noises – These noises can signal a buildup of sediment or calcium in your unit. It’s best to contact a professional to drain and flush your unit and made needed recommendations.
3. Sudden loss in hot water capacity – There are a variety of reasons why a water heater may sporadically work, or why you’re getting less hot water than you used to. To properly diagnose the issue, give us a call.
