Some common water heater problems can arise and disrupt the flow of hot water into your home. These minor problems can be repaired by a professional technician:
This is one of the most common problems. Either the water is not hot enough, or the volume is too low. This is usually due to a faulty thermostat. If your water heater's thermostat is defective, do not turn up the temperature too high to compensate, as this can create more troubles.
No Hot Water
There might be no running hot water despite the water heater being turned on. This happens when the water heater's pilot light blows out due to a malfunctioning thermocouple or a defaulting pilot control valve. If you use an electric water heater, a faulty heating element can cause this problem, and you will need to contact a professional for repairs.
This usually happens when the water gets infected by bacteria. You can call a professional to identify and repair the source of the problem in your heater.
Noisy Water Tank
Water heaters can often make strange, unusual noises due to a host of problems. It could be the sediment deposition being burnt by the heating element or the heating element burning out.
In most cases of leaky units, you are required to replace your water heater with a new one. Minor leaks can be fixed by tightening all the screws and pipe connections. Nonetheless, it is always advised to call for a professional.
If your unit shows any of these signs, contact Mr. Furnace for water heater repair now.
