Most Common Problems with Water Heaters

Understanding the nature of your water heater's issue is the first step towards a solution.

Conduct this simple inspection to confirm if your water heater is properly powered:

If you have a gas water heater, issues might stem from the pilot light, gas supply, or thermocouple. Ensuring the pilot light is lit and checking for gas supply interruptions are crucial steps.

If you have an electric water heater, check for tripped circuit breakers or faulty heating elements. Resetting the breaker or replacing elements might be necessary.

Common Problems are:

  1. No Hot Water: Could indicate a faulty heating element or a gas supply issue.
  2. Not Enough Hot Water: Often due to a malfunctioning thermostat or a small tank capacity.
  3. Rusty or Discolored Water: Usually signifies corrosion inside the tank.
  4. Strange Noises: Sediment buildup in the tank can cause rumbling or popping noises.
  5. Leaks Around the Tank: May be caused by loose connections, faulty valves, or tank corrosion.
  6. Water Temperature Fluctuations: Typically due to malfunctioning thermostats or heating elements.

Understanding these common problems can help you identify your water heater's issue more accurately.

Keep in mind that, water heater leaks can arise from several issues like faulty T&P valves, internal tank corrosion, loose drain valves, high system pressure, or aging. Sometimes, leaks are merely condensation or due to loose plumbing connections. Serious leaks, like those from a cracked internal tank, often require a full replacement. Identifying the cause is key to determining the appropriate fix.

When to Consider Replacing Your Water Heater

Deciding when to replace your water heater in Houston is crucial, especially as it affects both comfort and utility costs. While regular maintenance can extend a water heater's life, there comes a point when replacement is more cost-effective. Traditional tank-style water heaters typically last about 10-15 years, whereas tankless water heaters can have a longer lifespan, often up to 20 years or more. The longevity of tankless models is attributed to their on-demand heating mechanism, which reduces wear and tear.

Consider replacement if you notice consistent issues like insufficient hot water, frequent repairs, or signs of significant corrosion. Upgrading to a newer model, especially considering tankless water heaters, can offer more efficiency, lower energy bills, and a continuous supply of hot water. Modern water heaters also come with advanced features and better environmental footprint, making them an excellent investment for your home.

Roberto with Red One plumbing was fantastic! He was very personable and professional. You can tell he really knew his job well and he takes great pride in the quality of his work. He hooked up our standby generator and was very informative on the whole process. He made sure we knew what to expect and what each step entailed.
