Every home has a water heater to provide its inhabitants with hot water, but it’s probably something you don’t spend much time thinking about on a daily basis. That’s a mistake; your water heater isn’t just a tool that provides you with the comfort of hot water for washing and bathing, it use large amounts of energy to do so. For that reason, it’s important to make sure it’s in good repair, not leaking, and efficiently working hard to do its job.

Many homes use a water heater that is more than 15 years old, and as a result, leaks are something that tend to occur. Whether it’s a small drip from a pipe fitting that’s failed, or cracked piece of the housing, it’s crucial to resolve these issues as soon as possible. Water causes metal to rust, and as water heaters and the pipes they connect to are made of it, a small crack or drip can lead to big issues.

Signs of Failure

If you notice water pooling around your water heater, or its jacket on insulation seems in any way damp, call a professional to have it looked at it as soon as possible. Complete failure of a water heater is easy to diagnose, but smaller issues required a trained professional to assess the source of the problem and get it fixed before the damage gets any worse. Some problems may require a full replacement, but odds are if you catch an issue or leak early, you’ll be able to avoid a more costly repair later. Be sure to watch for rust on fittings at the top and bottom of your water heater, or for any signs of low temperatures and flow as they can indicate a problem.

When There is a Problem

If you do think there is are issues with your water heater, make sure to call a professional to give it a look, don’t try to do it yourself. This is very important, especially if you have one that uses natural gas. Any attempt to repair an item using natural gas as a fuel source requires a trained pro or you risk an explosive result. For electrical models, the same is true. Even if you can find the problem odds are you won’t have the tools or skills to repair it yourself, and it’s not a good idea to risk your life and your property to solve something that can cost as little as $150 to repair. Remember, safety comes first, and if you need a trained professional in Florida call Miranda Plumbing & Air Conditioning, and we’ll get the job done.
