Ask a Reading Heating ContractorL Signs of a Damaged Water Heater

Is your water heater making that groaning noise again? Are you noticing watermarks, dripping water, or even pools around the unit? If you bought a home recently in Reading, PA or still have the old water heater that came with the house, these little bits of “personality” aren’t normal. They could be warning signs of major issues with your water heater and could snowball out of control if not kept in check. Give us a call today if you’re experiencing these issues: even if your water heater has a sticker from another company. If you’ve got a problem with your water heater, Essig can help you diagnose the issue and get the repairs done quickly, without messing with your daily routine. Don’t let these minor problems build up over time and result in much larger issues. If you think there is a problem, call today!

Some good information to have on hand when calling your heating contractor will be:

-The make and model of your water heater (i.e. Bradford, AOSmith, Rinnai)-The capacity of the unit (40 Gallon Tank)-Whether your system is gas or electric-Any major signs of damage (noises, leaks, water marks)

We’ll also ask for:

-The address of your home-The best phone number to reach you-The best time to come to your home*

*We require someone to be at the home while a technician inspects your systems.

When we come to your home, an experienced technician will:

-Inspect your water heater-Test heating components-Check for leaks-Inspect each valve and fitting for damage or wear-Check temperature gauges

Once we’ve got a good idea of what’s going on with your system, we’ll lay out some options to get your system back up and running in no time.
