Wondering how to test the functionality of your water heater? Concerned you might need water heater repair and wondering how much it costs? There are several issues that could be happening with your water heater, and it's impossible for one website or one article to diagnose them all. However, it's important to understand what could be causing your water heater issues, necessitating a repair. Let's take a closer look:
If your electric water heater runs out of hot water, takes forever to make the water hot, or doesn't deliver any hot water at all, the main culprit is generally one or both of the heating elements involved. The good news is that this type of water heater repair is simple and straightforward as well as inexpensive. We can come to you and repair your water heater heating elements by removing the old one and replacing it with a new one so you can enjoy hot water again.
Remember that most water heaters last anywhere from 10-15 years. If yours is getting up there in years, it may be better to replace it than to try and repair it. Fortunately, we can provide you with advice as well as recommendations for a water heater replacement should you need a new water heater installed.
There are several other issues that could cause your water not to heat up in your water heater. Of course, you'll want to be sure that your circuit breaker is on and hasn't tripped accidentally. Also be sure to reset the high temperature cut-off. This may fix the issue, but the fact that it happened to begin with may mean there's an electrical problem involved.
If your heating elements are good to go, there may be an issue with the thermostat or the cut off switch.
Not only is this an emergency problem, it could also be dangerous. There's a lot of power and pressure going into the hot water heater, in addition to a lot of heat. You don't want to try a "do it yourself" repair only to make the problem worse. We understand that having hot water is a priority and hot water heating emergencies like leaks are one of the jobs we prioritize quickly and efficiently. Your safety and the safety of your family is our immediate concern, so if your hot water tank is leading, you'll want to give us a call right away so that we can diagnose and fix the problem.
