A water heater is an important water-based appliance used in the house. They are often underestimated and even ignored. But it does not dispute the fact that they provide us with hot water for use during the cold winter days. Like every other item in the house, water heaters can develop one problem or another over time and will require servicing or repair. Usually, some people will attempt to fix some of their heater problems on their own. This is not advisable and can be dangerous, especially if you do not fully know what you are doing. Calling on a professional for help is the best thing to do at this point. But what if you don't know when you are supposed to do so. Outlined below are some water heater problems that require the services of a professional plumber.
No matter the type of water heater you have, be it an electric or a gas water heater, problems can develop with either of the two. At Emergency Plumber London, we have professionally experienced plumbers that will handle problems with any water heater. Notify us immediately if your water heater has any of the following issues:
Leaks can happen in two major places in a water heater, the top, and the bottom part. If the leak is from the top, it could mean the inlet pipe is loose or the inlet valve is leaking. When the leaking is from the bottom, it means the tank itself is leaking, and the remedy is a replacement.
A water heater that doesn't produce hot water is faulty. Often this is traceable to the tripping-off of the circuit breaker or failure of the heating element. The point is that it is beyond your skills and requires professional intervention.
When a water heater is producing cold water or water not hot enough, there is a problem with the thermostat. You can adjust the temperature yourself, but in most cases, the thermostat is set at the factory and can't be changed. At this point, call on a plumber for help.
The problem can also be as a result of a faulty thermostat or loose wiring.
This is also caused by the thermostat, where the temperature is too high. Call us at Emergency Plumber London for help in replacing the thermostat.
Recovery time is the time taken to reheat an entire tank supply of water. This problem is more common in an electric water heater than a gas water heater. If you notice your heater is taking longer than before to recover, then it's time to call a plumber.
Strange noises coming from the water heater could be a sign of scale build-up on the heating element, or deposits on the bottom of the tank, or even a leak somewhere. To avoid escalating the problem, call us immediately you notice this, for professional help.
