Reasons Running Out of Hot Water Faster Than Before

You dont want to start your day with a cold shower. If you notice constant running out of hot water before the normal time, then your heater might require attention. You dont have to keep suffering from icy showers as a result of running out of hot water every day, please contact us at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pittsburgh to investigate the problem and provide a lasting solution.

What are the Signs You Need a Water Heater Repair?

There are some common signs you should pay attention to that may call for water heater repairs. When there is low hot water pressure or you run out of the water faster than before, you should call for water heater repair. Similarly, when there is a water leak, or you notice rusty, cloudy and discolored water, please contact us for help. If you notice water that develops an unpleasant taste or odor or some unusual noises emanating from the appliance, please give us a call.

Some Troubleshooting Tips for Your Malfunctioning Water Heater

Once you have determined that your water heater has a problem, you can perform certain troubleshooting steps to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Look for leaks around the water heater. Valve failure or loose pipes can cause leaks on top of the appliance. Condensation and leaky gaskets may be responsible for leaks at the bottom of the heater. The next step is to check the circuit breaker. If there is no hot water supply, there might have been tripping of the circuit breaker. Check the electrical panel for signs of misaligned switches, and flip them back in position to reset the switches. In some cases, it could be a result of the failure of heating elements that will require professional repair or replacement service.

Other Steps You Must Take if Your Heater Develops a Problem

If you notice some sounds emanating from the water heater appliance, then there might be some sediments. When sediments accumulate inside the tank, there might be a build-up of scales. If you notice some hissing, banging or knocking sound from the appliance, there might be some sediment settling at the bottom. Flushing the tank and then refilling with fresh water could be a solution, and it should restore the hot water supply.

Contact Us if Your Water Heater Requires Repair
