Water Heaters – A Central Part Of Your Life

Water heaters are a critical part of your everyday life. Cooking, cleaning, bathing, and all kinds of other daily activities rely on hot water. That makes this piece of equipment central to your home and general happiness. Yet despite this, a lot of people forget that until their water heater has an issue. Fortunately, our team at Blitch Plumbing has the knowledge and skills to make sure you don’t have to worry about this. Whether you need repair of your current heater or installation of a new one, we’re the team that can help you get it installed right the first time.

How Long Does a Water Heater Last?

With proper care and maintenance, you should expect your hot water heater to live a long life. That said, nothing lasts forever; every water heater will eventually reach a point where you’ll want to consider replacing it before it starts to present a problem. On average, residential hot water heaters last somewhere between six and thirteen years. Your tank’s lifespan will depend on the type of water running through it as well as how often (and how well) it’s maintained. Our experienced team can help you care for your hot water heater, repair it as needed, and replace it when it eventually becomes necessary.

Signs You Need a Hot Water Heater Repair

Is your hot water heater not functioning properly? Here are some things that might tell you that you need to have your hot water heater repaired:

Irregular Water Temperatures
Hot Water Runs Out Quickly
Discoloration Of Water
Unusual Noises

Irregular Water Temperatures

A hot water heater is due for repair if it is not doing its job – keeping your water heated. If your water comes out too hot or too cold, there can be an issue with the water heater.

Hot Water Runs Out Quickly

Hot water heaters are designed to keep water heated to use throughout the day. At any one time, a water heater has gallons upon gallons of hot water inside. That being said, if your water turns from warm to cold too fast, your hot water heater is likely in need of repair.

Discoloration Of Water

The only color of the water that you should see coming from your tap is clear. If the water coming out of your tap is brown, rusty, or has dark particles, your hot water heater might be the problem. This poses a huge health hazard, so don’t hesitate to contact us immediately.

Unusual Noises

Aging water heaters produce mild buzzing sounds which are normal, but if your system is making loud banging noises, you should call our team right away in case it’s something serious.
