But do your water heater issues merit a professional response? Here are some signs:
Water that gets cold fast or doesn’t heat at all. If your hot water heater doesn’t keep up with demand or doesn’t heat water at all, you could need a repair, replacement, or an upgrade.
Loud banging noises from the heater. If you’re hearing weird noises from your heater like clanging, clattering, or rumbling, your hot water heater could be failing, and action needs to be taken.
Water leakage. If there are drips or puddles around or under your hot water heater, this can be a sign of pressure fractures, tiny fractures that will widen and cause more leaks and damage over time.
Rust visible on or near the tank. Rust is the sign of an aging system, and for every speck of rust you see outside the tank, there’s corrosion inside the tank that weakens its ability to bear pressure.
Issues like these in your Lockport home or business mean that you need to have your hot water tank evaluated quickly so that you can avoid other issues in the future. A full inspection can mean the difference between an inexpensive repair and much larger, more costly issues down the road.
