Signs of a Faulty Water Heater

Is your water heater acting up? Whether it's tankless, electric, or gas-operated, there are clear indicators that it's time to bring in the experts.

  • Lack of hot water throughout your home
  • Rapid depletion of hot water supply
  • Only getting cool or lukewarm water
  • Discolored or foul-smelling water
  • Leaks from the water heater
  • Unusual noises coming from the tank
  • Decreased water pressure
  • Aging unit (around 7-10 years for a traditional tank model, or 20 years for a tankless model)

Aire Serv® of Fairfield offers comprehensive repair services for broken water heaters. This includes replacing parts, flushing the tank, or fixing leaky pipes. However, if your heater is old and constantly in need of repairs, it may be worth considering a replacement. Additionally, if you frequently run out of hot water, upgrading to a larger tank size might be an ideal solution.

Common Heater Hiccups We Expertly Fix

We understand the urgency of getting your water heater working properly again. Our skilled technicians in Fairfield can address a range of issues with water heaters, including:

  • Broken thermostat: If your water is running cold or not heating up correctly, it could be due to a faulty thermostat. Simply set it to 120°F for optimal performance.
  • Faulty heating element: Is your water coming out ice cold or lukewarm? A failing heating element might be the culprit, preventing your water heater from heating up properly.
  • Power problems: For electric water heaters, check if the circuit breaker has tripped. If not, the issue may lie with the wires rather than the pipes. Our professionals can inspect and determine if you need water heater repair or electrical services.
  • Leaks and puddles: Water heater leaks can have various causes. You can tighten loose heating element bolts on your own. However, it's best to have a professional repair broken gaskets, stuck valves, or faulty temperature and pressure release valves. If corrosion has started in your water heater, it's likely time for a replacement.
  • Rusty, smelly, or metallic water: Rust indicates tank corrosion, while foul-smelling water often points to bacterial growth. Flushing the tank might help resolve odor issues, but if not, our experts can replace a deteriorating tank or anode rod with precision. An unpleasant smell resembling rotten eggs is a clear indication of a failing anode rod.
  • Sediment buildup: This can cause strange noises from your water heater and slower heating times. You might also notice sand or other particles in your faucet's water flow. Regularly flushing the tank can prevent or resolve this issue.
  • Pilot light and burner problems: Whether you're unable to light the pilot light or experience frequent burner outages, our service professionals are equipped to address potential root causes.

When it comes to water heater problems, our team is here to deliver reliable solutions.
