Like other plumbing fixtures, your water heater may need repairs over time, especially if it isn’t maintained.
Common water heater repairs include:
- No hot water: If you have an electric heater, check for a tripped breaker and try resetting your heater. A gas heater may need to be relit occasionally. If this isn’t the case, you may have a faulty heating element that needs to be replaced.
- Water is too hot: Initially, try lowering the thermostat. For every ten degrees you lower the temperature, you can decrease energy usage by 5%. If your water is still too hot, your temperature pressure valve may have malfunctioned.
- Leaks: You can troubleshoot a leak by tightening loose connections around the unit. However, if your heater is over ten years old, it may have corroded and needs to be replaced. We can help you find a new unit perfect for your home with our top-quality water heaters in Northford.
The best way to prevent repairs like these is with regular maintenance. Your water heater should be maintained annually to tighten any connections or flush your unit to remove mineral build-up. Without this maintenance, your heater may need to be replaced faster than a well-maintained unit.
