Keep Your Family Safe with Water Heater Repair
Your water heater provides hot water for a variety of daily activities, including showers, washing dishes, laundry, and more. When water heaters begin to fail, it can impact several areas in your routine. That is why it is vital that your water heater receives some form of care maintenance to keep it at its peak performance. Aside from this, water heater maintenance is also an important safety element. When your water heater fails, a buildup of pressure in the tank can happen. This pressure can cause a major explosion that can significantly damage your home and injure your family.
Here are some signs to look out for to determine if you need water heater repair:
- Rusty water
- Noise from the water heater
- Less hot water available than usual
- Water around the water heater, which is a sign of leaks
If your water heater is ten years or older, however, you may want to consider a replacement. You can find the age of your water heater by looking for the manufacturer's sticker on the upper portion of the unit. The first three digits will be a letter and two numbers. The letter represents the month. For instance, a G is the seventh letter of the alphabet and represents July. The next two numbers represent the year: 07 means the water heater was from 2007.
