Households rely on their water heaters to supply hot water whenever
they need it. So, when the water coming out of the showerhead during
a morning shower is icy, people are understandably shocked. The good
news is that people can get ahead of these problems and schedule
heater repair in Roscoe sooner when they know the
early signs of water heater failure.
The first thing
people might notice before their water heater stops working entirely
is that it’s not delivering consistent hot water. The water might
turn cold a few minutes after warming and then warm again a few
seconds later. Or the water might heat well one day but not the next.
Inconsistent heating can signal a problem with the unit’s thermostat
or heating elements.
Another sign of
possible failure is when the water heater makes popping or slapping
sounds. These sounds indicate that the tank has sediment built up in
the bottom of the tank. When the water heats up, it also heats the
sediment causing mini explosions in the tank. Although this is
alarming, the tank won’t explode. Yet, the tank does need servicing
to get rid of the sediment to protect the tank’s interior structure
and to ensure the heating elements aren’t damaged.
Other signs of a
failing water heater include rusty hot water, no hot water, and foul
odors when the hot water is in use. To schedule water heater repair
