At Collingwood Fuels, we want to help you keep your essential equipment and systems in good working order, and that includes things like your hot water heater. Whether you use your water heater for industrial applications or you simply use it to shower, the last thing you want is to have to deal with the heater breaking. To help you avoid that scenario, in this article, our team will go over some things to look for in order to tell if you need hot water heater repair.
- One clear sign that you need hot water heater repair is a leak in the tank. Even a small leak can lead to serious water damage over time, so it’s important to get this problem taken care of as soon as possible once you notice it.
- Another sign that you may need hot water heater repair is rust, either around your tank or in your tap water. If you see specks of rust in the water from your sink or showerhead, we encourage you to give our team a call right away to get the problem inspected. We’ll determine what, if any, repairs are necessary, and then we’ll get right to work on fixing your heater for you.
- Lastly, it’s likely that you need hot water heater repair or even replacement if your unit is over 10 years old. Most units are designed to last for about 8-10 years, so anything past this upper limit is likely to lead to problems.
