Is Your Water Heater in Distress?
In many cases, it’s possible to spot an issue with your water heater before you experience a total loss of hot water. Watch out for the less obvious signs of a problem, and contact our repair team for help ASAP.
Signs that your water heater needs to be repaired include:
- Less hot water: This is the most obvious sign of a malfunction. If your water heater isn’t producing enough hot water, or any at all, it’s a clear indicator that it needs a repair.
- Strange noises: If you’re hearing gurgling, popping, or cracking sounds from your water heater, it might be due to sediment build-up in the tank.
- Water leaks: Leaking water around your heater is a serious issue that warrants immediate attention.
- Discolored water: If your hot water has a rusty or muddy tint or carries an unusual smell, it could be a sign of an issue with your water heater.
- Inconsistent temperatures: If your water alternates between hot and cold without you changing the settings, your water heater could be malfunctioning.
If you’re experiencing any of these issues, we recommend getting your water heater inspected by a professional to prevent further damage and maintain the comfort of your home.

How Much Can a Water Heater Be Repaired Before It Needs Replacing?
Water heaters generally have a lifespan of 8-12 years, and while regular maintenance and timely repairs can extend this, there comes a point when repairs may no longer be cost-effective. If your water heater is approaching the end of its lifespan and is frequently breaking down, it would be more beneficial to invest in a new unit. A new water heater will save you from the constant worry and cost of repairs and can also provide improved energy efficiency, resulting in lower utility bills.
However, before making a final decision, you should consider the nature and cost of the problem. Something small like a broken heating element or faulty thermostat can be replaced relatively inexpensively, prolonging the life of the water heater. But if the tank itself is leaking due to rust or corrosion, or if your tankless unit has been severely damaged, replacing the entire unit is typically the most practical solution. Always consult with a professional to understand the best course of action for your specific situation.

Avoiding Future Water Heater Repairs
Maintaining your water heater can go a long way in preventing future repairs and prolonging its lifespan. With proper maintenance on a regular schedule, your water heater can last longer and perform better.
Use these water heater maintenance tips:
- Inspect it regularly: Make it a habit to visually inspect your water heater for leaks or rust periodically. These signs can hint at early problems that can be fixed before they become serious issues.
- Drain and flush the tank annually: Over time, sediments can accumulate at the bottom of your tank, causing damage and reducing efficiency. Flushing the tank yearly can help avoid this.
- Test the pressure relief valve: The pressure relief valve is a safety feature that prevents pressure build-up in your tank. Regularly testing this valve ensures it’s working correctly and your tank is safe.
- Insulate the tank: Insulating your water heater tank can reduce heat loss and increase energy efficiency. Just make sure not to cover the thermostat.
- Lower the temperature: Setting your water heater’s temperature to 120 degrees Fahrenheit can prevent overheating and save on energy costs.
Remember, regular professional maintenance is crucial for keeping your water heater in top shape. Always reach out to a qualified plumber for any issues beyond your understanding or control.
