There are several signs we look for when determining whether or not your system needs a repair. In fact, there are a few signs, in particular, that you as a home or business owner can pinpoint. This includes insufficient amounts of water, a total lack of water, or water that is extremely hot. You may also notice a discoloration in your water. Sometimes, the water may appear rusty or brown, which could be a sign that your water heater is beginning to fail. Other signs may include water leaks, unpleasant smells, and popping or whining noises. Let us know if you notice any of these signs or any other unusual activity, and we will send out one of our skilled technicians to perform an inspection.
Even if you don’t notice any significant signs, routine maintenance and services are still important. That’s because there may be issues forming beneath the surface that can only be recognized by a professional. For instance, sediments such as calcium and magnesium can cause buildup in the tank, which can eventually disrupt the overall functionality of your unit. However, if these sediments are filtered out periodically, you will likely never run into this issue. During the maintenance process, we can also check the burner to ensure that the flame isn’t discolored. A faulty burner could potentially release carbon monoxide fumes, making this type of inspection extremely beneficial and critical for safety.
