Many people enjoy stepping into a hot, steamy shower, it’s the perfect time to de-stress and relax at the beginning or end of your hectic day. So it’s not hard to imagine the frustration that comes from standing in a shower that just isn’t hot enough. So what’s the problem?
More than likely, a faulty water heater causes the issue. Here are some common signs that you may need a new unit:
Temperature problems – if your water is too hot or doesn’t reach your ideal temperature, try adjusting the thermostat on the unit. Most households set the temp between 120 and 140 degrees. If there is no hot water coming from the tank or if temperatures are constantly fluctuating, give us a call right away so we can help.
Very low water pressure – Another sign of a water heater issue is having love water pressure. Hotter water temperatures should not equate to low water pressure.
Hearing popping sounds – Yes, water heaters make noises from time to time, but if you hear a constant popping sound, indicative of hard water, this can be detrimental to both your pipes and water heater.
A hasty installation by a local home project store – often times, these water heaters are inappropriately sized for your home.
