RTM Design • Jul 25, 2022

While water heaters generally have long lifespans, they can still fail due to various issues. The good news is that with a proactive stance on maintenance, it’s easy to keep your heater in peak condition. Should you experience water heater malfunctions, don’t fret. Turn to Trust 1 Services, the leader in water heater repair in Milton, MA.

Below, we highlight the common water heater issues we can help you with.

Water Leaks

Leaks are among the most common water heater issues. If you notice a leak from the top of the tank, it could indicate that the water connections aren’t tight. Ensure your hot water outlet and cold inlet pipes aren’t loose or rattling. You’ll need to call for water heater installation to replace your water heater if water is spilling out from the pressure relief valve or overflow pipe.

Strange Smelling Hot Water

If your water heater produces a strange smell when you turn it on, it may have accumulated bacteria. In such cases, you need not push the panic button and call for a water heater replacement service just yet. A simple tank cleaning service will suffice. 

No Hot Water

It’s quite an inconvenience to not have readily-available hot water when you need it. In most cases of water heater failure, it’s the heating elements that may be faulty or the electrical connections have been affected. If the pilot light doesn’t ignite, your burner should be repaired.

Tank Takes Longer to Reheat

When your water heater takes ages to reheat, it could be a sign that it has a problem. It could be a sign that the thermostat is set too low, meaning its burner isn’t producing enough energy to heat the water faster. In addition, it could be a sign that you have an issue with your connection. We offer water heater maintenance and repair services!
