Water Heater Failure Warning Signs
The first and most common sign of a failing hot water heat is a lack of sufficient hot water supply. The most common causes of a lack of hot water is sediment build up in the bottom of the tank. When a sediment (minerals from water & rust from inside the tank) builds up along the bottom of a hot water heater, it acts as insulation, preventing the heating element (burner at the bottom of the tank) from coming into contact with the water. No contact, no hot water, simple. Another common issue is complete and sudden loss of hot water. When this happens there can be several causes, with gas units, we typically see something as simple as a pilot light going out. With electric units the issues can be more complex.
Additional signs of a malfunctioning hot water heater include:
- Banging/Clanking noises
- Sulfur/Foul Smelling Water
- Leaks and Water Pooling Around the Tank
- Failing Pressure Release Valves
- Burned Out Heating Units
