A water heater is an essential appliance in most homes. While usually reliable, there are a number of reasons your water heater might not be operating as it should. Here are a few reasons why your water heater is malfunctioning.
Power Supply Problems
Power supply issues are one of the things we check when we carry out any water heater repair in Fort Worth, TX. We inspect the heater’s circuit breaker or fuse and reset it if necessary if the breaker or fuse has tripped.
Examine the appliance for any obvious leaks, paying close attention to those near connections, valves, or the water storage tank. If there is a water pool or drips, there might be a leak. Check the pressure relief valve’s functionality as well. A malfunctioning valve might let water out or let too much pressure build-up. In either scenario, it’s critical to have regular water heater maintenance and hire a qualified plumber to fix any leaks or broken valves to prevent further damage.
The efficiency of the water heater might be impacted over time by sediment buildup at the tank’s bottom. This may result in inadequate heating or even a breakdown that warrants a complete water heater replacement.
Overall, it is advisable to call a certified expert or a professional plumber on how to go about the issue. Call Rockwater Plumbing today and let us handle your water heater concerns.
