What to Expect with Your Water Heater Repair

post img

When it comes to big repairs, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. Whether it’s car repair or home repair, having the right knowledge and understanding of what to expect can be helpful in making a decision. The same is true for water heater repair.

Knowing what’s involved, how much it will cost, and who you are working with can make all the difference in getting back to hot showers or warm dishes quickly.

How Can You Tell if Your Water Heater Needs to be Repaired?

Even if you’re not an expert, there are a few ways you can tell that your water heater may need to be repaired. These signs can include the following:

  • Water isn’t heating up: If your water isn’t heating up at all, it’s a sign that something may be wrong with your water heater and you need to get it checked out by a professional.
  • Water has an odor: If the water coming out of your taps smells bad or metallic, this could be a sign of sediment buildup in your hot water heater and will require repair.
  • Noisy: Water heaters can become noisy as they age, making strange popping and crackling sounds. This is usually caused by mineral deposit buildup in the tank and needs to be cleaned out.
  • Leaks: Leaks from your hot water heater should never be ignored and should always be inspected by a professional. Not only can it damage property, but it can also be dangerous.
