What Are The Dangers of A Faulty Water Heater?

Your water heater is a crucial part of your daily routine, from starting your morning with a warm shower to washing dishes after dinner. Any issue with your unit can be a serious inconvenience, but the problem does not stop there. 

A faulty water heater can increase your utility bills, spring a leak and cause water damage, or even erratically heat water and put you at risk of physical injury. This is why you need a trusted plumber that you can call when your water heater needs attention.

Types of Water Heaters

If it is time to replace your water heater, you have numerous advantageous options. 

Below we have listed some of the most common water heater technologies and why property owners choose them:

  • Storage tank water heaters: These are the most traditional type. They can store anywhere between 20 and 80 gallons of water, depending on the tank size. In general, the upfront costs for these kinds of water heaters are less than many other options. 
  • Tankless water heaters: These heat water only as needed, rather than storing it in a tank. They are more energy-efficient than conventional storage tank units. Most can deliver two to five gallons of hot water in a minute. 
  • Heat pump water heaters: These units use heat from the air or ground to produce hot water. Heat pump water heaters work great in warmer climates like Texas. They can cost up to three times more than a traditional storage-tank water heater, but you could expect to recover these expenses over time through lower utility bills. 
  • Solar water heaters: These systems use energy from the sun to heat water. They can be cost-effective in areas with plenty of sunlight like Austin or Cedar Park. Solar water heaters require a storage tank, and most units have 40 gallons of storage capacity. 

How Long Do Water Heaters Last?

In short, the lifespan of a water heater will depend on its type and how well you maintain it. Tankless water heaters generally last the longest. On average, they have lifespans of 20 years or more. Heat pump and solar units have an average lifespan of 15 years. Storage tank units are known to last 10 years. 

Regardless of the type of water heater, timely repairs and routine maintenance can extend its lifespan. By ensuring your unit is in working order, you can put off a replacement and even save money in the short term. A well-maintained water heater is going to use less water and energy to deliver the hot water you need.

Water Heater Making Noises?

If your water heater is making popping or rumbling noises, it can be due to a buildup at the tank's bottom. The burner heats the water through the sediment and creates these sounds. To resolve this, consider flushing the tank to remove the sediment buildup. If you need clarification, seek assistance from a professional plumber who can safely address the issue.

Common Water Heater Issues

At the first sign of an issue with your water heater, do not hesitate to get in contact with us. Our team of water heater specialists can quickly troubleshoot the problem and make our recommendation for whether a repair or replacement would be the most cost-effective for you. While other plumbers might try to upsell you, this is not a worry with Fairway Plumbing. We provide no-nonsense service. With us, you get a lasting fix at a great price. It is just that simple. 

Call us if:

  • You do not have enough hot water. This is often the result of a malfunctioning heating element, a buildup of sediment, or a faulty thermostat.
  • Your water heater begins to leak. Do not ignore this problem. If left unchecked, it could lead to flooding and serious water damage. 
  • Strange noises start coming from your unit. These will let you know that something has gone wrong with your water heater, and it is likely not operating as efficiently as it ought to.
  • Any piping or component of your unit has rusted or corroded. While your unit might still be working fine, rust and corrosion can weaken its components and result in serious issues down the road. 
  • Your pilot light has failed or gone out. A faulty or disconnected gas line could be the culprit. In any case, this is a problem that you want to trust a professional who has experience with gas plumbing.
  • You notice sudden increases in your utility bills. This is a common sign of a faulty or inefficient water heater. With proper maintenance or repairs, you can get your bill back in check.
