If you have noticed a leak in your water heater or if your home is not heating up at all, repair or replacing your water heater may be your options. Depending on how old your old water heater is, replacing might be the only choice you have left.
Whether you choose a gas water heater or an electric one, its replacement is best left to the professionals like Orange Plumbing. Our fully trained staff can help to install a new water heater quickly and efficiently.
The most common issue of a water heater is that it is not as hot as you would like it to be. This can be because of a faulty thermostat or defective heating. There are some other common issues which usually require repair or replacement of a water heater:
- Strange noises which mean that debris may have collected inside the tank and the dust particles are hitting the bottom surface of the tank. Even though you may drain the tank to get rid of the debris but some of it may still be left unless you get it cleaned thoroughly. It is recommended to call in the experts because the problem will keep coming back after every few months unless addressed by a professional.
- Leaking of the pressure relief valve means that the water inside the tank is too hot or there is too much pressure in the tank. This is a safety issue which needs to be addressed immediately because it is a hazard.
- Leaking of the water pipes is also a sign that your water heater may need to be replaced. Try to tighten the fittings and if that fails shut off the water supply and replace the fittings. There are many connection fittings that do not require soldering, but it is a job best left to the professionals.
