Common Water Heater Problems
If you notice your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s usually situated in your basement, by furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then contact A-PLUS Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at 301-747-3140 right away. Even a small leak can cause big 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 have a gas water heater, something could be wrong with the pilot light.
If you’re not sure how to get to the bottom of this, give us a call. We’ll take care of 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 undersized. We can help you determine how much you need and solve the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These symptoms can show that your water heater is about to break:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Tinted, white-colored or rusty water
- Water reeks
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Because water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, failure can cause a destructive flood.
Like with any different appliance, annual maintenance is critical. We recommend looking into our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid problems with your water heater.
