How to Avoid Common Electric Water Heater Problems
Jan 12, 2021
Most times, replacing your old appliances will be inconvenient, and even expensive but you can relieve yourself the stress by preparing beforehand. If you are suspecting that your water heater has started running down and need a new water heater, please do contact Just Water Heaters to plan replacement ahead.
When your water heater is older than 10 years
Naturally, you should be planning for a replacement if your water heater is older than 10 years. You can confirm the age of your water heater by looking at the first 3 characters on the serial number. If your water heater serial number is N114654635 means your water heater was manufactured in November 2011. Any water heater older than 6 years is probably heading for malfunction.
When water coming out indicates rust
When you turn up your water heater and the water turn out rusty and metallic, that should tell you that the appliance is becoming rusty from within. You need to confirm that the rusty or metallic water is coming out of your water heater and not your pipes, please contact certified plumbers at Just Water Heaters to confirm this problem. You can detect whether your water heater or pipes have become rusty by draining three buckets of hot water from the appliance and if the third bucket is filled with rusty water then the appliance is the problem.
Your water heater is making a lot of noise
One of the reasons you should regularly flush your water heater is the build-up of sediments. The build-up of rusty sediments can create some rumbling and banging sounds that indicate that your water heater needs help as soon as you can. The build-up of sediment means your water heater will consume more energy to heat water and there will be higher chances of leakages. Please contact Just Water Heaters for an evaluation of your water heater and for a lasting solution.
When there is a leak from your water heater
If you notice a puddle of water when you pass by it, then it is time you dispose of it and get a new one. The leak may be coming from the fitting pipe, or at some connection. In some cases, there may be a fracture inside the tank. Whatever the reason for leaks may be, it is important that our certified plumbers conduct proper diagnosis before replacing the tank. It is important that you consider the size of your household when choosing a new replacement tank. You need to have an estimate of how much volume of hot water you consume in a day in addition to the number of people in your household.
