How Do Water Heaters Work?
Water heaters are a major appliance in the household, responsible for heating all of the cool or cold incoming water. They are comprised basically of a large, upright cylindrical tank that may hold up to 40 gallons of water or more. The tank has a heating device located under the tank base and it is controlled by a thermostat. Traditional water heaters can use gas or electricity to heat the water. A gas-operated water heater has a pilot light and heats coil-like pipes with direct flame. The electric version uses heating elements to heat the water. Simply turning on the hot water side of a faucet pulls water from the outgoing hot water line from the tank.
How Can Water Heaters Malfunction?
Water heaters can stop delivering hot water or deliver water that is warm. This is the most common complaint. An aged water heater tank might build up enough calcium, rust, and hard sediments inside that it takes forever to reach the correct hot temperature, or the channels/pipes have clogged completely. A tripped circuit breaker or short in the fuse panel will disallow power to the unit, and this is typical with gas or electric water heaters.
Leaks are another common problem with water heaters. Old water heaters or units that have corroded pipes and joints may leak water in the area where they are located. A clogged vent may also cause a leak in a weak pipe or small crack in the plumbing. Excessively hot water may indicate the pressure relief valve is not opening and closing at the proper time. Foul odors, rusty or muddy colored water are all signs that the pipes or tank may be contaminated with debris, rust, or even bacteria. Banging or thumping noises are related to the pressure release function or unsecured plumbing pipes/lines that are loose or vibrating within a wall.

The Importance Of Professional Service
Having certified technicians with the skill, expertise and latest tools is the surest way to arrest the problem quickly and permanently. Safety is the biggest concern, especially working around water that can easily scald the skin and blind. Traditional water heaters have been known to explode and spray shrapnel-like metal. Explosions are not common but they can happen. Seeking the services of a professional will come with a work guarantee and warranty on parts if something should fail. A biannual inspection is sound logic when you consider what could go wrong. An inspection will find any minor faults that could lead to more costly damage and repair expense. Whether you need installations, maintenance, or repairs, our expert technicians are here to help. We offer safe, fast, and friendly services, which will get your home working at its highest efficiency.
