Common Water Heater Problems and the Importance of Regular Maintenance

Much like how the heart is the center stone of the body, the water heater is essential for any home to continue working in proper order. Sometimes, your home can need water heater services, and you will need to contact the professionals to come in and diagnose the issue. Whether it be a big issue such as a leaking water heater or maybe it is just time to upgrade to a newer water heater due to the age of your current one. Let the professionals help you out.

Swell Plumbing has been assisting the Salem community for years and has made a name for itself as one of the best companies to call when you need maintenance. They can assist you in your time of need when you hear strange noises coming from your water heater, or you begin to experience inconsistent water temperatures.

How to Know That Your System Needs Maintenance

Your water heater is an important aspect of your home when it comes to completing daily living. Without a hot water heater, it is difficult to wash, cook, or even bathe, and this can become an emergency situation in an instant. However, it is important to keep it from coming that far and to have your water heater checked regularly to ensure that it is functioning properly and everything runs smoothly with your system.

Most of the calls that our team receives at Swell Plumbing due to water heaters needing replaced could have been avoided due to simple maintenance repairs. Although, sometimes it is difficult to know if your water heater is not working properly. A few of the signs to be on the lookout to know if your water heater may need maintenance can include:

  • Strange noises, such as popping or cracking
  • Running out of hot water quickly
  • Rusty or discolored water
  • Detecting leaks around your water heater tank
  • Inconsistent water temperatures

These signs can mean that your water heater is on the way out the door, but not always. Regardless of what the warning signs may be, it is always better to be safe than sorry and contact a plumber to come to your home and investigate the issue at hand.
