Common Water Heater Problems
If you discover your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s usually placed in your basement, by furnace or water heater, or below your kitchen sink.
Then call Golden Seal Service Experts at 630-246-2698 immediately. Even a little leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting it’s time for a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting noor very little hot water out of your tap? If you own a gas water heater, there could be an issue with the pilot light.
If you’re not confident in how to get to the bottom of this, get in touch with us. We’ll handle the problem.
Not enough hot water may also mean that your water heater is giving out and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be undersized. We can help you figure out how much you use and take care of the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signals can show that your water heater is going out:
- Booming noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, cloudy or rusty water
- Water smells bad
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Because water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, failure can result in a destructive flood.
Like with any different appliance, annual maintenance is critical. We suggest checking out our Advantage Program to potentially avoid problems with your water heater.
