When to Replace Your Water Heater
No one wants an unexpectedly cold shower, and when your water heater stops working, it can disrupt your entire life while you wait for it to be repaired. Our Winchester water heater repair specialists know how frustrating a broken water heater can be, and are committed to providing you with the fast, friendly service you deserve. No matter what kind of water heater you have, the Casco Plumbing LLC team has the knowledge and experience needed to get your hot water back on.
Signs you may need your water heater serviced include:
- Cold or warm, but not hot, water when you turn on the tap
- Discolored water
- Sediment in your water
- Strange noises coming from your water heater
- Water pooling around your water heater
- Leaking water heater
The majority of these tend to occur as a result of a tank that is old and worn out. Getting broken valves, gaskets, and other parts fixed will likely help alleviate problems such as dripping and leaking, but minor repairs may not always prevent the inevitable breakdown of a corroded water heater. All that to say, if your water heater is getting along in years and has become significantly less effective, you may save yourself time, money, and a lot of cold showers by opting for an entirely new water heater. The best way to determine your next moves is to get a second opinion from a professional.
Why is My Water Heater Leaking Water?
When it comes to water heater leaks, there are virtually endless potential causes. However, most water heater leaks are caused by one of several common culprits, including:
- Broken gasket(s)
- Loose or broken drain valve
- Broken or inaccurate pressure relief valve
- Too much pressure inside the tank
- Rust or other pervasive corrosion on the inside of the tank
However, it's important to not mistake condensation for a leak. When you spot pools of liquid near the tank, this may not actually be the result of a leak. Condensation tends to build up on the outside of the water heater when cold water coming into the tank is cooler than the air outside. As condensation builds, you may begin to see drips and wet spots on the ground near your water heater, but this is normal and does not necessarily mean it is malfunctioning in any way. However, condensation does not produce puddles or standing water, and you should promptly connect with a plumber if you notice either of these.
Winchester Tankless Water Heater Service
If you need to replace your water heater, you may want to consider a tankless water heater. Unlike a traditional water heater, which utilizes a large tank to store heated water until it is ready to be used, tankless heaters will only heat water as it is needed, providing a continuous supply of hot water. Because water is heated "on demand," tankless hot water heaters waste less energy and therefore reduce energy costs. They are also smaller and take up far less space than a tank heater. If you are interested in trying out a tankless version of a water heater in Frederick County, give us a call today to learn more!
