Common Water Heater Problems
If you discover your water heater is leaking, turn off your home’s water valve. It’s usually located in your basement, by furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then call Broad Ripple Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at 317-527-0271 without delay. Even a little leak can cause major damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting you need to replace your water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting noor not enough warm water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, the pilot light could be malfunctioning.
If you’re not sure how to investigate this, call us. We’ll manage the problem.
Not enough hot water may also mean that your water heater is on its last leg and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be too small. We can help you calculate how much you use and remedy the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signals can mean that your water heater is about to break:
- Booming noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, white-colored or rusty water
- Water smells bad
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Because water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, a fault can lead to a catastrophic flood.
Like with any different appliance, standard maintenance is critical. We recommend reading up on our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid trouble with your water heater.
