Common Signs Your Water Heater Needs to Be Repaired

As a homeowner, it’s essential to be proactive and recognize the signs that your water heater may need repairs. By catching potential issues early on, you can prevent more serious problems from developing and avoid the inconvenience of a complete water heater breakdown. 
Watch out for the following signs your water heater needs professional attention:

  • Insufficient hot water: If you’re running out of hot water more quickly than usual, it may indicate a problem with the heating elements or thermostat.
  • Discolored or smelly water: Rusty or foul-smelling water can signify a corroding tank or the presence of bacteria.
  • Strange noises: Popping, crackling, or rumbling sounds coming from the unit often indicate sediment buildup or a failing heating element.
  • Leaks: Water pooling around the base of the tank or dripping from the unit is a clear sign that repairs are needed.
  • Inconsistent water temperature: Fluctuations in water temperature or lukewarm water may point to a malfunctioning thermostat or heating element.
  • Higher energy bills: If your water heater is working harder to heat the water due to a malfunction, you may notice an increase in your energy bills.
  • Reduced water pressure: A sudden decrease in water pressure from the hot water taps can indicate a problem with the water heater’s supply lines or valves.
  • Age: If your water heater is more than 10 years old and experiencing issues, it may be nearing the end of its lifespan and require more frequent repairs or replacement.
  • Pilot light issues: If you have a gas water heater and the pilot light won’t stay lit or is difficult to ignite, it may signal a problem with the thermocouple or gas supply.
  • Circuit breaker trips: For electric water heaters, if the circuit breaker connected to the unit trips repeatedly, it may indicate an electrical issue that requires professional attention.
  • Visible damage: Any signs of physical damage to the water heater, such as dents, cracks, or corrosion, should be addressed promptly to prevent leaks and further deterioration.
  • Delayed heating: If it takes an unusually long time for your water to heat up, it may suggest a problem with the heating elements, thermostat, or gas supply.

If you notice any of these signs, contact us right away. Our experienced technicians can diagnose the problem accurately and provide efficient, cost-effective solutions to restore your hot water supply. 

Should You Repair or Replace Your Unit?

Deciding whether to repair or replace your water heater depends on several factors, including the age of the unit, the severity of the issue, and the cost of repairs. Repairs may be the most cost-effective solution if your water heater is relatively new and the problem is minor. However, if your unit is approaching the end of its lifespan or requires frequent repairs, replacement may be the better long-term investment. If you are unsure whether you must repair or replace your water heater, our team can help you.

  • What Kind of Water Heater Do I Have? Gas or Electric?

    There are a couple things to look for to know what kind of hot water heater you currently have.

    Gas – Is there a black or a flexible yellow or silver pipe going into the bottom of your hot water heater? If so you have a gas water heater. If there is a large PVC or Metal vent pipe coming from the top of your water heater you likely have a gas water heater. This vent pipe is used to force the exhaust created by the gas out of your home.

    Electric – Electric heaters do not need the vent pipe from the top because there is no exhaust. If there is a large electrical wire (could look similar to an extension cord or small grey garden hose) going into the top of your heater this indicates you have an electric water heater.

  • Do I Have an Atmospheric Vent, Direct Vent or Power Vent Gas Water Heater?

    For gas tank style heaters there are three common ways to vent the exhaust from your water heater.

    Atmospheric Venting is the the most common venting system. You'll know it is atmospheric if the vent pipe goes through the ceiling and the vent pipe has a little space between the top of the water heater and the venting.

    Direct Venting is commonly used to vent directly outside the space the the water heater is in and connects directly to your water heater with no space in between the top of the heater and the vent pipe. So the vent does a 90 degree turn directly outside the wall. If you have a direct vent water heater currently typically you have to replace with the same water heater. Below is an image of a direct vent model:

    Power venting is common when you have to vent the exhaust a long horizontal distance. Power vents have a motor attached to assist the exhaust.

  • How Do I Know How Many Gallons My Hot Water Heater Holds?
    Located on the side of your water heater is a label that will list capacity. Don’t confuse this with the energy rating label. Most common sizes are 40-50. Text us a picture of the label and we’ll help you identify your heater.
  • Do I Need an Expansion Tank?

    We recommend you have one installed if you do not currently have one. Expansion tanks protect much of your plumbing system, like dishwasher valves and toilet valves. That’s why we charge so little for the installation.

    Current building codes for new construction for the Nashville area requires an expansion tank be installed. Additionally, the manufacturers for the water heaters we install highly recommend expansion tanks if your home does not have one. Water expands when heated, and the water must have a place to go, or thermal expansion will cause an increase in pressure in your water lines. The Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 requires a back-flow preventer and check valves to restrict water flow back into public water systems. Now, virtually all plumbing systems are 'closed,' and the thermal expansion tank allows excess pressure to be safely absorbed.

    A two-gallon expansion tank is suitable for a water heater up to 50 gallons and a five-gallon expansion tank is best for anything larger.
