Common Water Heater Problems
If you notice your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s typically situated in your basement, close to your furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then call Norrell Service Experts at 205-267-0023 without delay. Even a little leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting it’s time for a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Not getting anyor not enough heated water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, something could be wrong with the pilot light.
If you don’t know how to investigate this, call us. We’ll manage the problem.
A lack of hot water may also mean that your water heater is on its last leg and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be undersized. We can help you determine how much you use and remedy the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can show that your water heater is going out:
- Popping noises coming from the tank
- Tinted, milky-colored or rusty water
- Foul-smelling water
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Since water heaters generally hold 50 gallons of water, failure can lead to a destructive flood.
Like with any different appliance, standard maintenance is critical. We suggest looking into our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid trouble with your water heater.
