If your water heater is not very old and it’s not doing its job, it might need an easy repair instead of a costly replacement. Let’s think about common problems you may encounter:
Sometimes mineral deposits can keep water from heating fully. We can flush that out for you. Also, dip tubes that bring cold water into the tank may become cracked, infusing the hot water on it’s way out of the tank, and keeping water from reaching an ideal temperature. Depending on the severity and other issues that could be involved, dip tubes may just need to be replaced.
Water Heats Too Hot
Sometimes replacing the pressure relief valve will cure over-heating issues. Also, the temperature may just need to be adjusted.
Once again, this is probably sediment that overheats and explodes in the tank. Flushing the tank and replacing the heating elements may help. If the sediment is too large to flush out, you may need to replace the water heater altogether.
If you hear boiling inside your tank, call us immediately. This is a concern that needs attention right away. This indicates your pressure has already built up and attempting to deal with it yourself could cause severe injury.
