What’s Behind Your Water Heater Problems?

Your water heater is one of the appliances in your home that is constantly in use. While this means that you always have access to hot water, it also means that your unit can wear down quickly.

Things that could cause your water heater to malfunction include:

  • A broken pilot light: If you have a gas-powered water heater, then an issue with your pilot light may be the cause of your temperature control issues.
  • A broken or faulty thermostat: Electric water heaters use thermostats to regulate their water temperature, which means your unit may be experiencing problems as the result of a faulty thermostat.
  • Leaks: Leaking water tanks are a common problem and, while a leak won’t always cause problems with your water temperature, they can reduce the reliability of your unit.

How Often Should You Flush Your Water Heater?

Maintaining your water heater is crucial for its efficiency and longevity. Flushing your water heater regularly helps remove sediment buildup, ensuring optimal performance and preventing potential issues. The frequency of flushing depends on several factors, including the type of water in your area and the model of your heater. However, a general recommendation is to flush your water heater at least once a year. 

Here are some factors to consider when determining the frequency of flushing:

  • Water Hardness: If you live in an area with hard water, which contains high levels of minerals like calcium and magnesium, you may need to flush your water heater more frequently. Hard water can lead to faster sediment buildup.
  • Usage: The more you use your water heater, the more frequently you may need to flush it. High usage can accelerate sediment accumulation, especially in areas with hard water.
  • Age of the Heater: Older water heaters may require more frequent flushing to maintain efficiency. As water heaters age, sediment buildup becomes more common and can impact performance.
  • Manufacturer Recommendations: Check the manufacturer's guidelines for your specific water heater model. Some manufacturers may recommend flushing more or less frequently based on the design and materials of the heater.

Should You Invest in a New Water Heater?

The easiest way to tell if you should replace your water heater is to consider the age of your unit. Water heaters are only designed to last about 10 years and once it reaches this age, it will start showing signs of wear-and-tear. These symptoms are important to watch for as they indicate that a new system is required, and the need for a quick replacement to avoid going without hot water.

How do you know when your water heater needs replacing?

  • If your water’s temperature continually fluctuates
  • If there is rust or other visible signs of deterioration within the tank
  • If your water heater begins making loud, unusual sounds when running
  • If the water coming out of your faucets is discolored
  • If the need for repairs continues to grow
  • If your home runs out of hot water too quickly

If you have have been using your current unit for more than a decade or it's starting to breakdown, it’s time to think about installing a new, energy-efficient water heater. There are many great storage tank models on the market, but if you're interested in an upgrade, a tankless water heater is an excellent choice to consider.

When you reach out to the Northern Virginia water heater installation team at Reddick & Sons, you can rest assured that we will help you find the right system for your home. With our Prince William County plumbers, you know you are receiving the very best in service.
