3 Signs It’s Time to Have Your Water Heater Looked At

Hot water is such a part of our lives that we barely think about the convenience of it. When our water heater starts acting up, then our entire household can be disrupted. Washing dishes; doing laundry; washing our hands; taking showers: we rely on hot water for cleanliness and comfort. There are a few signs that your water heater needs a water heater service specialist.

Ultimate Spring Plumbing Checklist for Every Homeowner

Your Water Heater is Making More Noise

A loud water heater is not normal. As long as you are still getting the hot water you might think it’s fine, but this is a sign of sediment build-up along the bottom of your water tank. Since our water heaters heat and reheat water constantly, it causes sediment to build up. So even though your water heater is still producing hot water, it’s harder for it to do so. Getting the sediment cleaned out could extend the life of your water heater and make your water heater more energy-efficient.

If your water is a rusty color, this could be another sign of sediment build-up or rust. It’s best to get your water heater serviced before it goes out and you are left with no hot water until it’s fixed or replaced.

There is Water around Your Water Heater

A leak in your water heater is caused by a couple of things. The first possibility is not with the water tank itself, but the fittings around your water heater or the pressure overflow pipe. These are relatively easy to fix, but they should be done by a professional water heater service technician.

The other reason is that a small crack has formed in your tank. The constant heating of the metal tank makes it expand, then it shrinks as it cools. Over time this expanding and cooling can cause a crack to form. At first, the crack will still be able to keep the water in, but as your tank continues to expand and shrink, the crack will get worse.

Once you notice a leak, it’s important to get it looked at right away. Leaks only get worse, and the water damage that could result from a leak that isn’t stopped will make a simple repair bill into a much larger bill.

Water Heaters Don’t Last Forever

Your average water heater has a lifespan of between 8 to 10 years. This can vary a bit depending on the type of water heater. If you have lived in your home for less than 8 years and are having issues with your water heater, then you may not need a replacement, just some maintenance. The problem is if you notice an issue and don’t get it fixed, you can go from maybe needing a part replaced to needing a new water heater. Calling a water heater service technician can save you money. At Team Rooter, we know how to help your water heater last as long as possible.

Regular maintenance is important for so many areas of your home, including your water heater. When the time comes to replace it, we can help determine the best and most energy-efficient option for you. Don’t wait until you don’t have hot water. Give us a call today!

Team Rooter is an honest company to do business! They take care the job warranty without a question. Three years ago they repaired my sewer line with trenchless sewer pipe replacement. Last weekend the sewer backup to bathroom again. Called their customer service, unfortunately all the serviceman are out at the time, I got a local plumber came right way to clean out the blockage. Next day called Team Rooter reported the problem, a supervisor discuss the situation with me by phone and offered sending a technician to site to investigate. Mr. James Craig came with Cam Video the next day found tree roots break into pipe through a coupler. He immediately authorized a repair job: to break the concrete, dig 3 ft down to reach and replace the broken pipe coupler. Two men crew showed up next day completed the job which could value of thousands dollars but all under warranty. A special thanks to Mr. James Craig, his is knowledgeable and friendly. His kindly smile really comforts my anxiety. I would highly recommend Team Rooter for any plumber problem because rest assure they will come back to fulfill their promise.

Team Rooter was very professional, nice, clean and on time. They were able to find and clear out the tree branches that were growing into our pipes and up through our toilet. I would use them again if necessary

We had a slow drain issue with our kitchen sink. Had some difficulties and complication when trying to fix it. Hector came in less than one hr after the call, and quickly point out the issue and fixed everything in a clean, fast and professional manner. Price was very reasonable. Would highly recommend.
