When to Call for Water Heater Repairs

water-heater-technicianJust because the weather outside is so hot for so much of the year in our living area does not mean that you only want cold water coursing through your residential plumbing system. Hot water is one of the most important amenities in any home, and it is so common that many homeowners take its availability for granted. This is precisely why it is so troublesome to run into problems with your water heater. Any disruption to your hot water supply is going to cause serious inconvenience in your home.

The moment that you have any reason at all to suspect that there is a problem with your water heater, contact a member of our team to schedule professional water heater repair in Phoenix, AZ. Whatever the issue may be, it must be properly diagnosed and expertly resolved, preferably in a very prompt manner. We have some of the finest water heater technicians around on our staff, and we are happy to get that water heated back up to working reliably for you.

Keep Your Senses Alert!

With your water heater, it is not just a matter of keeping an eye out for trouble. You need to get a lot of your senses involved. There are a number of ways that symptoms of water heater issues may present themselves, and you are wise to take heed of them all.

LISTEN for strange operating sounds. Depending upon where your water heater is located in your home, you may be able to hear some of its operating sounds. This is particularly true if you have a power vented appliance. If, however, you start to hear rumbling or banging sounds coming from your water heater, then you are in troublesome territory. You may have a buildup of scale at the bottom of the tank, the temperature may be too hot, or any number of other issues.

LOOK for any signs of rust or leaks. Remember, your water heater does not have to flood a utility closet in order to be afflicted by leaks. It may seem like a minor leak, but it is wasting your money and putting your property at risk, regardless of how slight it may seem be. We can fix leaking connection points or pipes. If you use a tank water heater, though, and the tank itself is leaking, then a replacement is necessary. You should also keep an eye on your utility bills. If you notice a spike in gas or electricity costs, it could be the result of problems rendering your water heater less efficient than it should be.

FEEL for trouble, as well. You don’t want your water to be lukewarm, right? If you start to notice that the overall performance of your water heater is slipping, despite the fact that it is in fact set to the right temperature, then you may need water heater repairs. You shouldn’t be shivering when showering! Contact The Sunny Plumber Phoenix for the help that you need.
