Signs Your Water Heater Is In Need Of A Repair Or Replacement:

  • Not enough hot water
  • Water heating process is longer than usual
  • Loud noises from tank
  • Foul smells or leaks around water heater
  • Rust in water

A water heater that isn’t properly maintained can lead to bigger problems than cold showers. If the water pressure is too high, the water heater can burst and flood your home. Water damage from leaks can cause mold or even compromise your home’s foundation.

When Your Water Heater Is Making Noises

Sounds coming from your water heater is sometimes a sign of a malfunction, but sounds can also mean nothing is wrong at all. Obviously, it is helpful to know when hearing a noisy water heater should be followed by calling a professional.

Some different water heater noises and what they likely mean:

  • Ticking: Usually related to pressure changes moving the heat trap around. This is a normal sound and is nothing to worry about.
  • Hissing: Often happens with sediment buildup causing water bubbles. Could be a sign that you need to flush your tank.
  • Popping: If the water bubbles in your tank are a little less frequent they may sound like this. Yet again, this is likely sediment buildup that you should resolve by flushing your tank.
  • Rumbling: This could mean that sediment buildup is severe and the anode rod is corroding.
  • Whistling: Your TPR valve probably needs to be opened to release excess pressure.

If your water heater is making any unusual sounds, it is wise to contact a water heater expert for a diagnosis. Many times the issues goes back to flushing your tank, especially if you have not flushed it in the past year.

How Often Should I Have My Water Heater Serviced?

To keep your water heater operating correctly and to extend its lifespan, it is important to periodically have it inspected and maintained by a trained Austin water heater service professional. Generally speaking, it is recommended you have your water heater serviced at least once per year depending on the amount of hot water you use, with a tank flush being the most important type of maintenance. This will expel water heater sludge containing minerals, sediment, and other deposits from the inside of your heater, preventing malfunctions and slowing the deterioration of your tank.

Other Maintenance Tasks That Should Be Completed:

  • Checking the water pressure valve
  • Verifying that the pressure reducing valve is set correctly
  • Inspecting the anode rod for signs of corrosion
  • Testing the temperature and pressure relief valve
  • Investigating for signs of leaks
