Common Water Heater Problems We Can Resolve
Water heaters can display a number of worrying signs of malfunction as they age. It's important that you are able to recognize these symptoms so that you know when to call for hot water heater repair.
Schedule a service appointment with PF Plumbing if you notice:
- Discolored and/or bad-smelling hot water. These are symptoms of water heater tank corrosion, which releases rust into your hot water.
- Leaks. A leaking hot water tank is never a good sign. You may need to have a valve tightened or a pipe connection fixed, or you may need to replace your tank if it has rusted through.
- No hot water. Obviously, if your water heater isn't giving you hot water, you have a problem. Before you call for service, be sure to check your circuit breaker to make sure there haven't been any power interruptions.
- Hot water runs out very quickly. If you only get a few minutes of hot water before it runs out, you may need to adjust your usage habits, or you may need to upgrade to a larger tank or an on-demand tankless model.
- Water is too hot or not hot enough. If you're experiencing poor temperature control and adjusting the thermostat isn't helping, you may need to have the thermostat adjusted or replaced.
- Water heater is making weird noises. Water heaters shouldn't make noise, so don't ignore this. You may need to have your water heater flushed if so much sediment has accumulated in the tank that it has started making “kettling” noises.

Winston-Salem Water Heater Replacement & Installation Services
A problem with a hot water heater does not automatically mean you will need to have it replaced. Our Winston-Salem plumbers are often able to replace the component that is not working, such as a valve or heating element, and restore your hot water without replacing the entire unit. However, there are situations when replacing the hot water heater is necessary.
Benefits of New Water Heater Installation in Winston-Salem
Although many people wait until the water heater dies completely before replacing it, there are benefits to upgrading before it fails. As water heaters get older, they become less efficient. This may mean that it takes longer for the hot water to recover in periods of heavy usage and this inefficiency can make the water more expensive to operate.
If your water heater needs to be replaced, now is a great time to consider upgrading to a tankless model. Tankless water heater installation offers homeowners a number of enticing benefits, including a never-ending supply of hot water, improved energy efficiency, compact size, and long lifespan with minimal maintenance. To see if a tankless water heater is right for your household, get in touch with us today!
