Common Water Heater Problems

Unfortunately, water heaters tend to lose efficiency as they get older. In Arizona, the average life span for a water heater is about 7-10 years. If your unit has not been routinely serviced, then you may want to consider getting a replacement.  

If your water heater is newer and within the typical six year warranty period, then repairing the unit makes more sense. 

We have found that many homeowners in the valley are unaware of the importance of having routine maintenance done on their water heaters. 

Here are some common issues we see in Mesa, AZ and the surrounding cities in the Central and East Valley.

No Hot Water

If you have an electric water heater, then check for a tripped circuit breaker. If this is not the case, then most likely one of your elements or thermostats is defective.   
If you have a gas water heater, then your pilot light, thermocouple or thermostat have gone bad. You will need to call a professional to replace these components safely and correctly.

Not Enough Hot Water

If you are running out of hot water too quickly, then you may just need to turn up your thermostat but be careful to not turn it up too high!
If the problem persists, then one of your components may need to be replaced. Call us for prompt, expert service!

Rusty Water

Not good folks! Once your water heater tank starts putting out rusty colored water - most likely, it's the beginning of the end for your tank.
Don't wait to call a professional because your unit is on borrowed time.

Strange Noises

If you are hearing loud banging or popping noises, then what that means is that your tank has a lot of sediment build up on the walls. The build up of scale in your tank significantly cuts down on efficiency.
Your water heater is telling you that you need to flush the tank and check the anode rod. This sacrificial rod helps extend the life of your tank.

Water Heater Leaks

If your water heater is leaking, then the first thing you need to do is look at the top of the unit to see if the pipe connections are leaking. 

If those connections are not leaking, then chances are that your tank is probably leaking. Unfortunately, a leaky tank cannot be repaired.
