What’s Wrong With the Water Heater?

Water heaters normally go completely unnoticed until they have some sort of problem, but when that happens it is time to call for repairs or possibly a replacement. If you try to turn on the hot water when it hasn’t been used and all you get is cool or lukewarm water that won’t get any hotter, you need to call to have your hot water tank checked. If you notice water leaking from the tank or if your water bills and energy bills have gone up dramatically for no apparent reason, you may need hot water heater repairs. If you are having any issues with your hot water that don’t have a simple solution, said issues should be considered a hot water tank issue and professional attention should be given to it.

Are You Keeping up With Your Water Heater Maintenance?

Maintaining your hot water tank is essential to keeping it running efficiently and lasting longer. The benefits of regular maintenance (at least once a year) are lower gas or electric bills, and a longer lifespan for your equipment. That means you’ll save money each month, and can go longer without needing to replace your hot water tank!

A basic water heater tune-up usually includes:

  • Inspecting the tank for any cracks or signs of corrosion
  • Checking hoses for cracks
  • Draining and cleaning the water tank, removing sediment that may have built up inside the tank.
  • Check and replace filters as needed
  • Ensure that your water heater is operating at peak efficiency.

Whether your hot water tank is fueled by gas or electricity, the technicians at Columbus Water Heater Repair can help you keep it running flawlessly for longer with our expert water heater repair and installation services.

Some Helpful Hot Water Heater Information:

The size of your family, the utilities in your area and the space available for your water heater all play a role in determining how to choose a water heater. Buy a water heater with the following information in mind: 

Storage tank water heaters are the most common type. 
Water Heater Size Chart: 
People = Gallons (Natural Gas Water Heater)
2 = 30-40 
3  = 40 
4 = 50 
5 or more 50-75

Electric= ( don’t produce as much hot water as Natural Gas – IE not as efficient )

People = Gallons (Electric)

1-2= 30-40

3-4= 50

4 or more = 50-80

Storage tank water heaters are the most common type water heater and the best to buy. These units have an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until it is needed and used. They are available in electric, natural gas, and liquid propane (LP) models. Natural gas and LP water heaters normally use less energy and are less expensive to operate than electric models of the same size. 
Storage tank water heaters are designated by the amount of water they hold, in gallons. Tank size is one of the major considerations when purchasing one of these water heaters. If you intend to use a storage tank water heater, use our chart as a guide to finding the size you need. 

• Another consideration for storage tank water heaters is recovery rate — the number of gallons of water they can heat in an hour. The greater your demand for hot water, the higher recovery rate you need. 

 When you buy a water heater, look at the energy efficiency and yearly operating costs of a water heater before you decide which one is right for your needs. This information can be found on the Energy Guide label. 

 Know the dimensions of the space where your water heater resides. If your hot water use increases and you need to upgrade to a larger tank size, it may be necessary to run plumbing to a different area so the new, larger unit will fit. One alternative to running new plumbing is to purchase a low boy or shorty water heater. These units are shorter and bigger around than a normal water heater, allowing them to hold the same amount of water as their larger counterparts while still fitting in areas with limited headroom. 

 Small storage tank water heaters, known as point of use, utility or mobile home water heaters, are good choices for adding hot water to out buildings, shops or garages. Utility water heaters usually range in size from 2.5 to 19 gallons. The largest of these miniature units can also be used to provide hot water to secondary bathrooms that may be situated far from your home’s main water heater 

Periodic water heater maintenance can significantly extend your water heater’s life and minimize loss of efficiency. Read your owner’s manual for specific maintenance recommendations.

Gas Electric Water Heater Tips For Ladonia AL and the Metro area 

Water heating is the third largest energy expense in your home. It typically accounts for about 14% of your utility bill. There are four ways to cut your water heating bills: use less hot water, turn down the thermostat on your water heater, insulate your water heater, and buy a new, more efficient water heater. 

A family of four, each showering for 5 minutes a day, uses 700 gallons of water a week; this is enough for a 3-year supply of drinking water for one person. You can cut that amount in half simply by using low-flow showerheads and faucets. 

 Repair leaky faucets promptly; a leaky faucet wastes gallons of water in a short period. 

 Insulate your electric hot-water pipes. 

 Install aerators in faucets and low-flow showerheads. 

 Buy a new water heater with a thick, insulating shell; while it may cost more initially than one without insulation, the energy savings will continue during the lifetime of the appliance. 

 Although most water heaters last 10–15 years, it’s best to start shopping for a new one if yours is more than 7 years old. Doing some research before your heater fails will enable you to select one that most appropriately meets your needs. 

 Drain a quart of water from your water tank every 6 months to remove sediment that impedes heat transfer and lowers the efficiency of your heater. The type of water tank you have determines the steps to take, so follow the manufacturer’s advice.

 Take more showers than baths. Bathing uses the most hot water in the average household. You use 15–25 gallons of hot water for a bath, but less than 10 gallons during a 5-minute shower. 

You should consult the manufacturer’s website or literature (manual) that came with the unit, for detailed warranty information. 

Periodic water heater maintenance can significantly extend your water heater’s life and minimize loss of efficiency. Read your owner’s manual for specific maintenance recommendations. 

Some Water Heater Questions People Ask:

Is it better to fix or replace my water heater?

There is a 50% rule, which states: if any repair costs 50% of what a new one would cost, then it should be replaced as opposed to repairing it. However, you still want to keep in mind the frequency of repairs and your water heater’s age even if the current repair doesn’t add up to %50.

What are the signs of a failing hot water heater?

  • Aging – Household appliances unfortunately are not built to last forever
  • Delivering rusty or cold water from the tap
  • Leaking – For good reason all homeowners are fearful of water damage
  • Persistent shortages of hot water
  • Hot water temperature varying day to day
  • Making strange noises
  • Consistently requiring expensive repairs

Can my water heater explode?

It is very rare, BUT, residential water heater explosions do occur and can be costly. Explosions are possible with both electric and gas tank water heaters, mainly those that are poorly maintained.

Should I replace my 15 year old water heater?

Most experts would say yes, but You should look at the signs of a failing water heater in the left pain. You could actually have a 15 year old water heater that works just fine and doesn’t need replacing.
