Recognizing some early warning symptoms of a defective water heater is crucial as a homeowner because the sooner you detect the problem, the less likely you will encounter issues. Continue reading to learn more about some of the early warning indicators of a damaged water heater to look out for this winter season.
You Have Low Water Pressure
Do you have enough hot water to take care of your daily needs? Scenarios in which you only have a limited hot water supply are unpleasant, and you should avoid using boiling water for some tasks because it is pretty dangerous. Adjusting the temperature dial on your water heater’s settings is an easy remedy. If this does not work, call Alpha Plumbing to come out and change your water heater pressure.
Your Water Temperature Fluctuates
Your water is too hot one second, too chilly the next, and occasionally precisely right. It’s tempting to dismiss these changes in water temperature, but they could indicate a far more significant problem with your defective water heater, which will only develop with time.
Restricted Waterflow In Your Plumbing System
Water flow changes in your plumbing system could signal a sediment buildup within your water heater or the plumbing that links to the various locations throughout your home. This is not a warning sign to ignore and deal with later because the buildup will only worsen, potentially leaving you without much-needed hot water on a cold winter day.
