The water heater in your home helps to keep you and your family more comfortable when you bathe, wash your hands, or even prepare food. If you turn on a warm faucet, but only cold water comes out, the first step is checking the faucets in other rooms of the home. Faucets can fail and pipes can freeze, both of which may cause the water to stay cold when you have the hot tap turned on. If the water coming through multiple faucets is cold, you probably have a broken water heater. This appliance is designed to last for about 10-15 years, so if yours has been in your home for more than a decade, you should think about replacing it before it causes damage.
Some of the other signs that indicate a broken water heater include rusty water coming through the faucets, wet spots on the floor around the tank, or strange sounds coming from the unit. Any of these indicators could mean that your water heater is about to fail, if it hasn’t already. A broken water heater can cause serious water damage in your home, especially if it’s full when it fails. Water heaters often contain quite a bit of water, which means you could be dealing with a major flood if yours breaks suddenly. Even a change in pressure can result in the release of a lot of water on the floor around the tank.
