Having running hot water is a luxury we often take for granted until the water heater suddenly stops working. When your water heater is malfunctioning, it can be a huge inconvenience to you and your family. Whether it’s a simple repair or you require a complete replacement of your water heater, the experts at Larkin Plumbing work quickly and efficiently on your water heater to save you time and money.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

The most obvious sign that your water heater is failing is when it stops producing hot water or the water is not as hot as it should be. Also, if you run the hot water and there’s only a limited amount before the water runs cold, this is another clear indication that there is an issue with your water heater.

 

Here are some other things to consider if you suspect your water heater is not working the way it should:

Water leaking from the plastic faucet on a residential electric water heater sitting on a concrete floor with a red pipe wrench, tubing cutters, teflon tape and copper fittings in the foreground to repair or place the appliance.Age of water heater. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it’s most likely on its last leg. This could also be a potentially dangerous situation if the water heater develops cracks and starts to leak hot water.
Rusty water. Rust on the pipes coming from your water heater may be a sign that the water heater is rusting internally as well. If this is the case, the integrity of the tank may be compromised, resulting in dangerously hot water leaking from the water heater.
Loud noises. If your water heater is suddenly making a rumbling, banging, or clanking sound, this could be a sign that sediment has formed at the bottom of the tank. This causes the water heater to be less efficient, and can even create holes or cracks as the sediment shifts.
Water damage. Any type of water damage around the water heater probably means there is a crack in the tank or pipes. A professional should be called immediately to prevent further damage or injury due to scalding from the hot water.
