Common Gas or Electric Hot Water Heater Problems

Central Plumbing and Heating, Chesapeake, VA

Some point in time, you'll encounter some issues in your gas or electric water heater tanks. Common problems include insufficient or no hot water, rusty or smelly water, strange noises and leakages.

No Hot Water

When water that comes out from your shower is unpleasantly cold, the culprit is likely your water heater. You probably need to check the pilot, thermocouple and gas control valve when you have a gas water heater. If you have an electric unit, check the thermostat and the heating elements. If you think there's something wrong with any of these components, have a professional hot water technician check and fix your unit.

Inadequate Hot Water

When your water heater delivers some hot water but not sufficient to your needs, it is probably the temperature setting or the heating components of your electric heater, any tank deposits or a disconnected dip tube.

Rusty, Smelly Water

Accumulation of bacteria and pipe corrosion likely cause discolored water and rotten egg stench that comes out when you switch on the faucet.

Odd Noises

Accumulation of sediments that settle at the bottom of the tank could cause the tank to overheat, as a result the water boils. This causes the rumbling noise from your water heater. Flushing your water heater will remove the deposits.

Meanwhile, the hissing sound would indicate a tank leak that lets water go down onto the burner.

If your water heater has been idle for a while then recently turned back on, condensation might be happening from the bottom of the tank leaking onto the burner. The hissing noise will diminish once the tank is fully heated.

Water Leak

A faulty T&P relief valve or a plumbing connection leakage, or even the tank itself could be the cause of a leaky water heater. T&P valve and plumbing leaks can be fixed but when the leak is in the water hank, it should be replaced right away.

If you think your water heater is not properly functioning or you encountered the abovementioned issues, contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc. Our certified hot water technicians can help you resolve the hot water issue.

How A Professional Plumber Can Help You Save Money On Clogged Sink Repairs

A clogged drain will not only make your sink unusable, but it could also cause some other issues. Besides an out of order sink, it may also result in an overwhelming stench stinking in the entire house and affects the performance of some home appliances such as dishwasher and garbage disposal.

You may probably handle minor clogs but when your sink plunger seems unable to clear the drain, consider contacting a professional plumber to properly fix the problem. If you think calling a professional can be expensive, let us change that notion and explain to you how certified plumbers can help you save money on the repairs:

1. Prevents Exorbitant Repair Costs

Significant clogged drains when not properly repaired can result to even more serious drainage issues. Water may spill over into the house or worst cause major flooding which may lead to water damage problems. This circumstance will surely cost you big time. You may also be forced to temporarily displace while repairs are still ongoing.

This scenario can be prevented if you hire a professional plumber to make the repairs and maintenance work. The maintenance will ensure that minor issues are addressed early and preventing it from becoming worst at a later time.

2. Clogged Drains May Signal More Serious Issue

Over time, a lot of stuff can cause an obstruction in your sewer line which delivers wastewater away from your home and leads it to the municipal sewage line. But, an obstructed sewer system indicates a huge problem that must be inspected by a certified plumber.

If you don't take action immediately, the problem can get worst in the long run. Some serious blockage is a result of a grease accumulation or roots of trees that may have grown inside the pipelines.

3. Certified Plumbers Can Solve Recurring Clogs

If you frequently experienced a clogged drain then you may be dealing with a bigger issue. Grease, oils, and fats may have accumulated in the pipeline. This must be removed properly and if you do it as soon as possible your repair charges won't be that high.

4. Avoids Unnecessary Inconvenience

Having a clogged drain can really be frustrating and inconvenient. In order to prevent disruption to your daily routine, call a professional plumber to deal with it right away.

The plumbing system is daily doing hard work. It constantly deals with other things that can cause obstruction. At some point, you will experience some trouble in your sink drain. When you do have a certified plumber help you to address the issue. Contact Central Plumbing and Heating, Inc.
