Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Your water heater is a vital appliance that provides hot water for various household tasks, from showering to doing the dishes. When it's functioning properly, it tends to go unnoticed. However, when issues arise, they can disrupt your daily routine. 

If you've noticed that the water in your house isn't heating up as well as it used to, it's time to start paying attention to your water heater. Water heaters perform best when they're routinely maintained by a plumbing professional, as this helps to spot minor problems and prevent bigger ones from occurring in the future.

The most common signs you need water heater repair are:

  • Fluctuating Water Temperature: If you've noticed that your hot water temperature fluctuates, going from hot to cold or vice versa unexpectedly, this could be a sign of a thermostat or heating element problem.
  • No Hot Water: The most obvious indicator of a water heater issue is a complete lack of hot water. If you turn on the hot water tap and only cold water flows out, it's time to investigate the cause.
  • Insufficient Hot Water Supply: If you frequently run out of hot water more quickly than usual, it may signal a problem with your water heater. This issue can be caused by sediment buildup or a malfunctioning heating element.
  • Unusual Noises: If your water heater starts making strange sounds like banging, popping, or hissing, it could be a sign of sediment buildup or overheating.
  • Water Leaks: Any visible signs of water leakage around the water heater are a cause for concern. Leaks can be caused by a faulty valve, corrosion in the tank, or a deteriorating pressure relief valve.
  • Discolored or Rusty Water: If the hot water from your faucets appears discolored, rusty, or has a metallic taste, it may indicate corrosion inside the tank. Rusty water can also lead to plumbing system damage.
  • Foul Odors: A foul odor, often described as a rotten egg smell, can be indicative of bacterial growth within the water heater. This issue can typically be resolved through tank flushing and cleaning.
  • High Energy Bills: A sudden increase in your energy bills without a corresponding increase in usage may indicate that your water heater is operating inefficiently.
  • Age of the Water Heater: Consider the age of your water heater. Most water heaters have a lifespan of approximately 10-15 years. As they age, they become more prone to issues and efficiency problems.

Any of these could be signs of water heater malfunction. We offer prompt and reliable Highland Park water heater repair services so that you can have access to hot water as soon as possible. Our Highland Park plumbers arrive at your door with the tools and parts needed to complete most kinds of water heater repair. Our experienced technicians can diagnose and repair water heater problems efficiently, ensuring you have a reliable and efficient hot water supply once again.

Water Heater Replacement

Is your existing unit outdated or failing to properly heat your water supply? Are you wasting money on a unit that isn’t energy efficient? If so, consider replacing your water heater with something new! Little Tommy’s Plumbing can help you select the right unit that will meet your family’s needs. You can get the new equipment installed quickly so as not to interrupt your family’s daily routine.

Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater

If you're looking to improve the efficiency and convenience of your hot water system, consider upgrading to a tankless water heater. Unlike traditional water heaters that store and constantly heat a large tank of water, tankless water heaters heat water on demand, providing hot water whenever you need it.

Benefits of tankless water heaters include:

  • Endless hot water supply
  • Energy savings
  • Space-saving design
  • Reduced risk of leaks and water damage
  • Longer lifespan

At Little Tommy's Plumbing Shop, Inc., we specialize in the installation and maintenance of tankless water heaters. Our team of skilled plumbers in Highland Park, IL can assess your current water heater system and recommend the best tankless options to meet your needs and budget.
