Water heaters are an important part of any household. Without a working water heater, it’s difficult to get dishes, clothes, or yourself clean. Anyone who’s been forced to take cold showers for more than a day knows how daunting it can be to have to jump into an icy shower after a long day’s work. Killing germs is difficult without both soap and hot water, so it can also be hazardous to go long periods of time without access to this commodity. Luckily, we can tell you about several ways that you can prevent a broken water heater in your home.
If your water heater makes strange noises, especially rumbling or banging, it’s a likely a sign that sediment present in normal water has built up over the years and is sitting in the bottom of your tank. With this type of problem, you will want to get a professional out to inspect the broken water heater as soon as possible.
If you find water at the base of your broken water heater, it could mean that you have a leak. We see leaks all the time, and they can occur in a few different areas of your water heater system. Fittings and connections can be the sites of the leaks, as well as the tank itself. If you want to prevent further standing water, getting a consult can help determine the precise location of the issue and what can be done to fix it. We can look over your machine to determine the problem location.
