Does Your Water Heater Need Service?

No one likes a cold shower – especially during the winter! But, unfortunately, sometimes problems with your water heater can lead to problems like leaks, noise, discolored water, and a shortage of hot water! At Affordable Service Plumbing and Heating, we regularly conduct maintenance on water heaters for our customers in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho. Use our handy checklist below to determine if your water heater needs a checkup - before the cold showers become a problem!

  1. Not Enough Hot Water
    When the hot water seems to run out too quickly, you may have a buildup of sediment inside the tank. A cracked dip tube may also cause ineffective heating of the tank’s water, lowering the amount of hot water available. If you’re not getting enough hot water, call Affordable Service for professional maintenance, our trained technicians can easily identify and resolve both of these concerns.
  2. Water Leaks
    A water heater in good condition should never leak. If you notice dripping or small puddles of water around the bottom of your water heater, it could be condensation, but if it’s not, you should request immediate repairs from Affordable Service.
  3. Discolored Water
    Rust-colored water could be a sign you have any number of plumbing problems. A rusty water heater may indicate that the appliance is about to fail. In this case, you need to call in an expert plumber from Affordable Service to identify the source.
  4. Noise Inside the Water Heater
    Your water heater should function quietly. Popping noises might mean there is too much sediment in the tank, and that your water heater needs repair or replacement.

You want your water heater to function properly throughout its full lifespan. Use this list of things to look for to make sure that your water heater is working correctly, and when it’s not get help. To get the most output from your water heater this winter, call Affordable Service for maintenance and repairs.
