Common Water Heater Problems
If you find out your water heater is leaking, shut off your home’s water valve. It’s typically placed in your basement, close to your furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then call Sunbeam Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at 716-427-6807 right away. Even a small leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be indicating you need to get a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Not getting anyor very little heated water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, the pilot light could be malfunctioning.
If you’re not confident in how to get to the bottom of this, call us. We’ll manage the problem.
Not enough hot water may also indicate that your water heater is on its last leg and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be undersized. We can help you determine your usage and take care of the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can mean that your water heater is about to break:
- Booming noises coming from the tank
- Tinted, milky-colored or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Since water heaters usually hold 50 gallons of water, a fault can result in a catastrophic flood.
Like with any other appliance, standard maintenance is critical. We suggest looking into our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid problems with your water heater.
