Water Heater Repair: Everything You Need to Know

One of the most common reasons for water heater repair is a lack of hot water. This can be caused by a faulty heating element, a broken thermostat, or a malfunctioning gas valve. If you notice that your water heater is not producing hot water, we recommend calling us at Rainbow Plumbing & Heating to diagnose and fix the issue.

Another common need for water heater repair is a leak. Leaks can occur from the tank, valves, pipes, or connections. If you notice a leak, it is important to turn off the water supply to the heater and call a plumber as soon as possible to prevent further damage to your home.

Noisy water heaters can also be a cause for concern. If your water heater is making strange noises, it may be due to sediment buildup in the tank. This can reduce the efficiency of the heater and cause damage to the tank over time. A plumber can flush the tank to remove the sediment and improve the performance of your water heater.

Water heaters are important appliances in our homes and require proper maintenance to function efficiently. If you notice any issues with your water heater, we recommend calling a professional plumber to diagnose and fix the problem. Regular maintenance can prevent problems from developing and extend the life of your water heater.
