How Do I Know When to Call ?

The most common clue of a failing hot water heater is the lack of enough hot water for your needs. As water is heated in the tank, minerals from the water separate and sink to the bottom. As minerals build up, they keep the heat from the main burner from getting to the water. As the heater continues to try to bring the water up to temperature, it works harder and longer and can eventually cause the water heater to fail or leak.

Before your water heater fails, you may experience these symptoms :

  • Not enough hot water. This can be caused by mineral buildup in your tank or failure of the heating element
  • Odd banging or popping noises. Constant overheating may cause these noises.
  • Smelly or discolored water. Mineral deposits from your tank may be finding their way out of your faucets’
  • Rusty water. Could be caused by corrosion in the tank.
  • Tank breakdown can eventually lead to flooding.

These symptoms can be your sign to call in a professional to make an assessment and repair. At Aplus Heating & AC Services, we can take care of most water heater repairs in short order.

Repair or Replace ? How Will I Know ?

There are times when repair isn’t worth it. If your water heater is older and repair is costly, a new unit may be in order. Water heaters typically last about 10 years. If yours is nearing the end of its lifespan, we can offer information about new, energy efficient models so you will not have to continually call for repair services. And your energy bill will thank you as well. Water heaters have been shown to be the second largest energy consumer in the household so switching to an updated energy efficient model could have a substantial impact on your monthly energy costs.

Having a well functioning water heater is not just a convenience. A failing hot water heater can pose a flooding hazard in your home. As anyone who has experienced a leaking water heater can attest to, a leaking tank can cause a great amount of damage to your home and personal belongings.

At Aplus Heating & AC Services, we would be glad to add your water heater onto a scheduled maintenance plan that can ensure that it doesn’t present a breakdown in your home. We will do an inspection and troubleshoot your system, make any water heater repairs or make a suggestion when we believe it has run the course of its life. If your water heater is nearing that 10 year mark, it may be wise to consider a replacement before it becomes an emergency.
