What’s Wrong With the Water Heater?
Most water heaters go completely unnoticed until they have a 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 jumped for no apparent reason, you may need water heater repairs. Any issues with your hot water that don’t have a simple solution 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:
- Draining and cleaning the water tank, removing sediment that may have built up inside the tank.
- Inspecting the tank for any cracks or signs of corrosion
- Checking hoses for cracks
- Check and replace filters as needed
- Ensure that your water heater is operating at peak efficiency.
Whether your hot water tank is powered by gas or electricity, the super techs at Gene Johnson Plumbing & Heating can help you keep it running better for longer with our expert water heater services.
Beware the Broken Thermostat
If you have wild temperature fluctuations when trying to use hot water, the problem could be with the thermostat on your water heater. Sensors may become damaged with time so the water could end up being too cool or even too hot. Your plumber will check the thermostat as part of the inspection of your hot water tank when you call for service.

Stick With Professional Installation and Repair
Many homeowners try the DIY approach when it comes to installing a water heater, but it’s probably not a good idea for most. If you have a gas water heater, it is tied into your gas line, which can be extremely dangerous as one wrong move could cause a gas leak. Any DIY replacement involving a gas line is a definite no. Even if that’s not the case, a professional installer has intimate knowledge of how water heaters tie into your home’s plumbing and electrical systems, so it’s always the best way to go.
