4 Common Water Heater Problems
As a central part of your plumbing system, your water heater is used many times a day.
There are a few common problems that can pop up as it ages. Here are a few of them:
1. Water Leaks
If the heater is leaking water toward its top, it could mean that pipes or valves have become loose. When this happens, you’ll experience a loss of hot water.
When water leaks from the bottom of the tank, it might be time to replace it.
2. Not Enough Hot Water
If you’re not getting enough or any hot water, there might be a problem with the thermostat or electrical element. This can be frustrating because it’s not as obvious as a leak or break.
3. Water is Too Hot
This is also a problem likely connected to the thermostat. It’s more common as the seasons change. Check your water heater’s thermostat to ensure water is being heated to the correct temperature. The recommended setting is 120 to 140 degrees.
