The last thing any homeowner wants to deal with when it comes to their home is an issue with water -- and in their time of need, hot water can be the difference between a pleasant experience at home, and a seemingly never ending disaster without a necessity. However when paying attention to how homes operate and the things that occur on a daily basis, there are a number of factors to consider -- and keeping an eye out for warning signs is a critical step in the process. Below are a few key things to look out for at home that may require a visit from your local water heater technician.
Every now and then, water may be coming through the pipes looking less clear than remembered, and a sudden change in color might be the difference between a healthy water heater, and one on its way out. If you notice rust colored water, or anything that looks to be tainted or dyed in any way, you may be looking at an issue requiring a second set of (professional) eyes.
Everyone who’s lived in their own home for any length of time seems to get to know the ‘habits’ of how it operates, and type of thing that seems ‘normal’ on a day to day basis.What may be an adverse occurrence usually trips the average person up, and a lack of hot water is usually one of these occurrences. If you’re noticing your shower water getting colder faster, this likely serves as a larger red flag and needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Make sure you’re contacting someone before none exists at all!
Hearing weird noises coming from the basement typically means one of two things; monsters, or an appliance issue. More often than not, this is usually the latter, and should be handled as soon as possible. When it comes to a water heater, built up sediment that is constantly reheated can eventually cluster, harden, and cause all sorts of internal noises inside the heater. Not only can this be a large maintenance issue, it can actually cause small cracks in the heater itself, which ultimately lead to costly leak repair.
