Warning Signs of Hot Water Heater Trouble

Being proactive in identifying warning signs of potential issues can prevent major disruptions. Let's explore these indicators and shed light on how often you should schedule water heater maintenance for optimal performance.

  • Leaking Water Heater: A leaking tank water heater is a clear sign of trouble. Puddles around the storage tank indicate potential internal damage that requires immediate attention.
  • Inconsistent Heat in Water Supply: If you notice fluctuations in water temperature or periods of cold water while using hot water, it could signify issues with the control valve, heating element, or thermostat.
  • Pilot Light Issues: A consistently extinguishing or flickering pilot light on a natural gas water heater may indicate problems with the fuel source or thermocouple.
  • Unusual Noises: Strange sounds, such as popping, banging, or rumbling, during water heating processes can signal sediment buildup or other issues within the tank.
  • Sudden Increase in Energy Bills: A significant spike in energy bills without a corresponding change in usage may indicate an inefficient or failing water heater.
  • Rusty Water: Rusty or discolored water coming from the hot side of a faucet suggests corrosion inside the tank, signaling potential failure.
  • Old Age: The typical lifespan of a storage tank water heater is around 8-12 years. If your unit is reaching this age, it's wise to monitor for signs of deterioration.
  • Cold Water from Hot Side Distribution: If you're constantly getting cold water from hot side of a faucet, there may be issues with the control valve, heating element, thermostat, or fuel source.

Standard Water Heater Maintenance

Regular maintenance helps prevent major breakdowns and ensures your hot water heater operates efficiently, reducing the risk of unexpected failures. To maintain an energy-efficient and reliable hot water supply, we recommend scheduling standard water heater service at least annually to keep your unit working efficiently. During your water heater maintenance service, our plumber will drain and flush out your water heater. This service means the plumber will empty your water tank and refill it with clean water.

Our standard water heater maintenance removes sediment from your unit. If sediment is left to build up, it can cause loss of efficiency, burner assembly damage, or tank failure. Additionally, this service can increase the life of your water heater.

Gas Water Heaters

We recommend scheduling maintenance for gas water heaters at least once a year. At this service, our plumber will flush your water tank, check the temperature and pressure relief valve, inspect and replace the anode rod, and check for proper operation of the control valve and burner assembly.

Additionally, they will check for code compliance and provide any recommendations for improvement. If you have a gas water heater in San Jose, the SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter experts can offer water heater maintenance tips and professional service.

Electric Water Heaters

Did you know that electric water heaters last longer than gas water heaters? In fact, with proper installation and maintenance, they can provide service to a home for 10-15 years.

If you have an electric water heater in your house, the maintenance process is similar to that of a gas water heater. First, our plumbing professional will turn the water heater's power off before inspecting it for water leaks. Then, they’ll check the temperature and pressure relief valve before draining the water tank.

Next, they’ll check the heating element for scale and replace the gasket if necessary. Finally, they inspect the anode rod and refill the water tank. SWAGS Plumbing and Rooter has you covered with maintenance for electric water heaters.
