Lakewood Water Heater Installations and Repairs Denver CO

Whether you use an electric water heater, a gas water heater, or a tankless water heater in your Lakewood home, they have the potential to fail when they are most needed. It is important to ensure that proper maintenance checks are being carried out from time to time. Some common issues that you may experience with your water heater include a decrease in hot water, bad odor, rust, popping or rumbling noise and leakage. If any of these signs are detected, you will have to prepare for repairs or replacement.

Tips Before Calling a Technician for a Water Heater Repair in Lakewood

lakewood tankless heaterIf you are planning on troubleshooting the heater by yourself and without any professional help, you must turn the electricity or gas off along with the water valve. If the water doesn’t heat up quickly, check the flame and see if it is burning. An off flame means that there is no gas flow as usual, so you can replace or tighten the thermocouple and/or control valve.

In case you do not get enough hot water, it may be a sign that the heater may be overtaxed. Always remember that heaters produce up to only 75 per cent of its total capacity of hot water, so don’t be surprised if you get 30 gallons from a 40 gallon heater. The inlet drain nipple must be opened and the dip tube must be pulled out. Replacement may be necessary depending upon its shape.

Prevent the Avoidable Water Heater Problems

The connections must be checked from time to time once the water supply is turned off. The hot water tap must then be opened to see if water is still flowing. If it is, there are chances that you may have a crossed connection. Frequently, the most common problem involves the interconnection of hot and cold water lines, such as shower valves, dishwashers, or faucets.
