Signs You Need Water Heater Repairs

If you’re not getting any hot water, it’s fairly obvious that there’s something wrong with your water heater. However, other signs of water heater trouble can be less easy to spot.

Some common signs that you need water heater repairs include:

  • Lack of hot water
  • Unpleasant odors
  • Visible rust on the tank
  • Sediment buildup
  • Lukewarm water
  • A noisy water tank
  • Leaks

While many water heater problems can be effectively repaired, some issues will necessitate complete water heater replacement. If your water heater is past its normal lifespan (usually anywhere from 8 to 10 years or longer if you have a tankless water heater) or if it has a major leak or extensive rust, it might be time to consider replacement.

Types of Water Heaters We Repair & Install

At Essig Plumbing & Heating, we are capable of working on all types of water heaters, including:

  • Traditional tank water heaters
  • Gas water heaters
  • Hybrid heat pump water heaters
