Do you think the water heater in your Orlando area home may need a repair? At Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI), we perform repair and maintenance on a variety of water heaters, including commercial water heating systems. While you may need a minor repair or maintenance task, it is important to catch problems early on before they become a larger issue and expense.
Here are 3 signs that let you know it may be time call for a water heater repair:
1. No Hot Water
If you have a tank water heater, you may have simply run out of hot water and need to wait until the tank heats up again. If this happens often, you may have the incorrect size tank for your home. Whether you have a gas or electric water heater, no hot water could also mean that there’s no power going to the water heater. For gas water heaters, make sure the pilot light is lit, and for electric water heaters, make sure that a fuse hasn’t been blown. If that’s the case, you may need to hit the reset button on some models.
2. Water Is Not Getting Hot Enough
This could easily be an issue with the thermostat setting. Depending on where the thermostat on your water heater is located, it could have been accidentally set too low. You could also have a clogged burner on a natural gas water heater.
3. Leaking Water Heater Tank
Unfortunately, a leaking water heater tank means you’ll definitely need a repair and most likely a replacement. If corrosion has caused the damage, then you may want to consider a water treatment system. Definitely call one of the Orlando plumbers at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI) if you hear this noise or have other issues with the hot water in your home.
