Signs Your Water Heater May Need Professional Repair

Your water heater plays a crucial role in your daily life, providing hot water for showers, dishes, laundry, and more. When it’s
functioning correctly, it often goes unnoticed. However, when problems arise, they can disrupt your routine and comfort. At
Ninja Plumber, we understand the importance of a properly functioning water heater. Here are the signs that you water
heater is in need of professional repair:

Inconsistent Water Temperature

One of the first signs of water heater trouble is inconsistent water temperature. If your hot water supply fluctuates between scalding and cold, it could be due to a faulty thermostat or heating element.

No Hot Water

he most apparent sign of a water heater issue is a complete lack of hot water. If you turn on the hot water tap and only cold water comes out, it’s time to investigate the cause.

Reduced Hot Water Supply

If your hot water runs out quickly or provides less hot water than usual, it may indicate sediment buildup or a malfunctioning heating element.

Strange Noises

Unusual noises coming from your water heater, such as banging, popping, or hissing sounds, can indicate issues like sediment buildup or overheating.

Leaking Water

Any visible signs of water leakage around the water heater are cause for concern. Leaks can result from a faulty valve, a corroded tank, or a deteriorating pressure relief valve.

Discolored or Rusty Water

If the hot water appears discolored, rusty, or has a metallic taste, it could signal corrosion inside the tank. Rusty water can also damage your plumbing system.

Foul Odors

Foul-smelling water, often described as a rotten egg odor, is usually a sign of bacterial growth inside the tank. This can be resolved through flushing and cleaning.

High Energy Bills

A sudden increase in your energy bills without a corresponding change in usage may indicate that your water heater is operating inefficiently.

Pilot Light Problems (Gas Heaters)

Gas water heaters may experience issues with the pilot light, such as frequent extinguishing or difficulty staying lit. This can be due to a malfunctioning thermocouple or gas valve.

Age of the Water Heater

The age of your water heater is an essential factor. Most water heaters have a lifespan of around 10-15 years. If yours is approaching this age, it may be more prone to issues and inefficiency.

Recognizing these signs of water heater trouble is essential for addressing issues promptly and avoiding more extensive
and costly repairs. If you notice any of these signs or have concerns about the performance of your water heater, it's wise to
contact Ninja Plumber. Our experienced technicians can diagnose and repair water heater problems efficiently, ensuring you
have a reliable and efficient hot water supply once again.
Water Heater FAQs

How long does it take to install a new water heater?

The installation time for a new water heater can vary depending on the type of unit being installed and the complexity of the job. A professional plumber can give you a more accurate estimate based on your specific situation.

Can I save money by repairing my water heater instead or replacing it?

Should I repair or
replace my water
heater?

If your water heater isn’t working properly or if
it’s sprung a leak, you might be wondering
whether it can be repaired or if you’ll need to
replace it altogether. A new water heater may
seem like a large initial investment but, in many
cases, replacing your water heater could be the
more cost-effective solution.

So, how can you tell if your water heater should be replaced?
Some signs include:

  • Leaks: When water heaters start leaking, repairs are simply not an option. If you’ve found a big puddle of water under your water heater or have seen other signs of a leak, it’s time to schedule a water heater replacement service.
  • Corrosion: Corrosion can—and likely will—lead to leaks. While you may have some time, depending on the extent of the corrosion, you should be prepared to replace your water heater soon.
  • Poor Energy Efficiency: Old water heaters simply aren’t as efficient as newer models. While poor energy efficiency isn’t necessarily something you can’t live with, replacing your water heater with a new, energy-efficient model can ultimately offset the price of installation.
  • Rusty Water: As your tank ages, mineral deposits build up over time and will cause visible dirt or rust coming from your water taps. If you notice signs of rusted water, contact your local professional plumber.
  • Odd noises: Banging or tapping sounds coming from your water heater can signify that you have sediment buildup and can cause cracks in your tank, leading to a leaky tank. It would be best if you considered replacing it with a newer model.
