When to Call for Water Heater Repair Service in Columbus

Scheduling regular water heater maintenance with our team can prevent you from experiencing problems with your unit, but it is still helpful to know the signs that your water heater is in need of repairs.

  • No hot water – The most obvious indicator that your water heater is malfunctioning is a lack of hot water coming from the tap. You might also notice a more gradual decline in performance, as the water might take longer to heat up, or you may not have hot water for as long as usual when you are showering or doing the dishes. Not only is a lack of hot water a big nuisance, but it could also result in higher gas or electric bills, since your unit is likely using more energy to work with a diminished performance.
  • Rust in the water heater tank – Rust can be a big problem for water heaters, posing a risk for corrosion and contamination of your water. When rust is present, the anode rod likely needs replacing. This is a relatively simple fix for our technicians that could spare you from more serious problems later on.
  • Water leaking from the unit – Left unaddressed, rust can corrode the water heater tank liner, causing water to leak from the unit. This might cause damage to your floors, walls, or ceilings, depending on where the unit is located in your home.

When to Repair or Replace Your Water Heater

In some cases, our technicians will recommend that you replace your water heater rather than invest in repairs. This is generally the case when the water heater is more than 10 years old or the cost of repairs would total more than half the cost of a whole new unit.
