How to Tell if Your Water Heater Needs Repair
More often than not, when there is something wrong with your water heater you will know it with certainty. Either there will be a complete lack of water coming out of your faucets or there will be a hefty leak in the storage tank causing water to quickly spill out. Sometimes though, there are subtle indications that hint that something is amiss.
Be on the lookout for the following signs you need water heater repair:
- Sudden spike in water bill
- Loud banging noises when water heater is running
- Cloudy or rust-colored water coming out of your faucets
- Lack of hot water
- Noticeable leak in the storage tank
If you notice any of the above, be sure to call our Columbus water heater repair exerts at The Rooter Works Plumbing and Drains right away. Our team will inspect your water heater and perform a diagnostic.
Water Heater Replacement in Columbus
We will always try to repair your water heater rather than replace it, but sometimes replacement ends up being the more economical option.
You should consider replacing your water heater if:
- Your unit is more than 10-15 years old
- The cost of repair is more than 50% the cost of replacement
- You have had to schedule more than one repair
Depending on the extent of the damage to your water heater, our team can help guide you to select the best option for your particular needs.
What Temperature Should You Set Your Water Heater To?
A storage, or tank, heater is among the most popular type of systems for residential customers. These units always keep water at a desired temperature. A thermostat within the unit senses the temperature of the water inside the tank and turns either the electric or gas furnace on to maintain the internal temperature. The temperature within these units is adjustable to suit any needs of the customer; however, our expert plumbers recommend setting the temperature to 120о Fahrenheit rather than 140о Fahrenheit to reduce energy consumption and the risk of scalding.
How Often Should You Flush Your Water Heater?
To ensure that your water heater continues to function properly, we recommend flushing your tank at least once a year. Additionally, our Columbus water heater experts suggest that you replace any standard plastic drain valves with brass ball valves.
The benefits of a brass ball valve are:
- It makes your flushing system sturdier due to a larger opening
- It helps ensure a more thorough flushing
