Common Signs You Require Water Heater Repair
Your water heater could be having problems even though it’s still providing you hot water. Water heaters aren’t typically front and center and can easily be forgotten about. Take a few moments to check for the following symptoms and contact us if any of them are present:
No hot water at all is an obvious sign of a hot water heater issue. You may also experience water being too hot or not hot enough. This could be due to a buildup of sediment or a thermostat problem.
If water is leaking from the top of your water heater, your T&P valve may have failed, or a pipe may be loose.
Brown or rusty colored water is a serious indication of corrosion, which means a leak is inevitable.
If the water from your tank smells bad, it’s likely due to a high level of bacteria. Smelly water often occurs in homes that have well water as their primary source.

If you’ve experienced any of the above issues, it’s time to call in the trusted professionals at Hydro-Flo Plumbing & Heating.

This is a job best left to the professionals. Our team has many years of experience and utilizes the latest equipment and industry best practices.
Water Heater Repair vs. Replacement
In many cases, your home’s water heater can be repaired, but sometimes it needs to be replaced. Replacement is the most expensive option, but a new, more energy-efficient water heater can save you money in the long run. It’s also a good option if you have an older unit that will continuously require repairs. Consider the following factors:
The average gas water heater lasts ten years, while tankless water heaters can last 20 or more. If your unit is reaching the end of its lifespan, it makes sense to replace it with a new one.
If your water heater is less efficient and your energy bills are going up, you may want to replace it with a newer energy-efficient version. Your water heater makes up 14% of your total energy bill.
Try using the 50% rule. If any repair costs 50% of the cost to replace your water heater, it makes more sense to replace it than repair it. You should also keep in mind the frequency of repairs, as they can add up over time.
