Whenever possible, it's best to avoid getting to the point where you lose access to hot water completely. This means acting proactively any time you notice a problem with your water heater! If you notice any of the following, contact us right away:
- Reduction in stable hot water output - Many complications can cause a water heater to fail in providing adequate hot water, even in a tankless water heater system. If you're not getting the amount of hot water you're used to, at the temp you're used to getting it, call for a diagnostic service.
- Discolored water from the hot tap - Discoloration present in the water coming from your water heater indicates an excess of minerals and sediment. Most often, this is caused by a lack of water heater maintenance, or skipping a flush and fill service.
- Loud popping noises from the water heater - Popping is also an indicator of sediment in your tank, but may also mean a problem with your gas water heater or electric water heater's heating element. Rarely, electrical issues may be at fault as well.
- Any signs of leaking - water coming from the pressure relief valve, from a damaged joint or failing seal, or from the tank itself. Regardless of where the water is coming from, this needs water heater repair right away.
A well-maintained water heater will provide reliable operation for eight to twelve years. Tankless systems may last 20 years or longer. The older the system, the increasing number of problems and repairs you can expect. Thus, age is the first fact to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace a water heater. You will also want to consider your average energy bills, the cost and frequency of repairs, and the required type of repair. Before deciding to repair or replace your system, our team will give you an honest, accurate assessment based on our professional experience.
The team at Wilder Mechanical can install tankless water heaters, gas and propane water heaters, electric water heaters, and hybrid water heaters. We carefully select the water heaters we offer for their longevity, reliability, ease of maintenance, and operational efficiency. Our team will help you identify the best system for your needs and budget.
