What’s Wrong With My Water Heater?

question-markSpring calls for spring cleaning. This means that you’re probably getting into all the corners and crannies of your home that you might normally overlook, cleaning out the rain gutters, and maybe even pulling your lighter clothing layers out of the back of your closet. While these are all great measures, we think it’s important to take care of every part of your heating system. We want you to focus on your water heater service in Joilet, IL

If you’ve had trouble with your water heater this past season, then it might be time for you to schedule an appointment with our professionals. Water heater repair doesn’t have to be difficult. With the help of our professionals, we can identify the issues with your water heater and solve them as soon as possible. 

What Might Be Going on With Your Water Heater

When something is off about your water heater, you might notice these signs: 

Not Enough Hot Water

The number one sign that your water heater is struggling is a lack of hot water in your home. You should be able to take a shower for a reasonable amount of time and have hot water the entire time. If your shower is going icy cold halfway through, then it’s time to check in with your water heater. You might have sediment built up in the tank that’s causing a capacity issue. 

Water Is Too Hot

You could be one of those people who has the opposite water capacity issue that we mentioned above. Instead of lacking hot water, you could have a situation where you’re nearly being scorched when you hop in the shower. There is too much of a good thing and this is one of those circumstances. If your water is far too hot, then you should start by checking the temperature your water heater is set to. If the water temperature is too high, you can turn it down by a few degrees. This should make a major difference in your home. 

Low Water Pressure

Have you noticed that there’s low water pressure in your home? When you run water, you should be able to have a steady stream come from any faucet in your home. If you can’t trust this to happen and what you receive is more of a trickle, then it’s time to invest in water heater repair. 

Dirty/Rusty Water

Is your home’s water noticeably dirty or rust-colored? If it is, then you’re probably suffering with sediment issues. Depending on how much sediment is in your home’s water, you might actually notice the color of your water change or actual sediment in your water. This is something that our professionals can change. 

Smelly Water

Your water should never smell bad. If every time you pour yourself a glass, you find yourself grimacing when you take it to your face, then it might be time for you to schedule an appointment for water heater repair. Smelly water is a sign that you have a water quality issue and the chances are high that it can stem from your water heater.
