Signs of a Malfunctioning Water Heater


Water Heater Leaks

Just like any other part of your plumbing, the water heater can start leaking. What’s more, different parts of your water heater can spring a leak, particularly as they get older. If the water heater has pools of standing water or leaks coming from nearby pipes, let us know! The location of the leak can help inform the potential severity of the underlying problem.

For instance, if the leak is near the top of the water heater, check the piping connections for signs of rust or any cracks. Oftentimes these leaks can be fixed quickly. However, if the leak is closer to the bottom of the water heater, it may be a more serious issue. Most often it’s because the tank has cracked open due to age or extensive corrosion. In such cases, the most cost-efficient option could be water heater installation instead.


Water Is Too Hot or Cold

Excessive or weak heating can be caused by sediment buildup, a faulty thermostat or if the water heater’s heating element has failed (is only applicable to electric models). For models that use natural gas, the problem may stem from the pilot light going out, which is usually because it’s dirty or malfunctioning. If you’ve noticed an abrupt shift in your supply of hot water or if it’s taking longer than usual to heat up, call a Motta Heating and Air Conditioning plumbing technician.


Rust or Discoloration

The older your water heater is, the more susceptible it is to mineral and chemical buildup, causing internal components to rust. This rust can eventually lead to corrosion, which can impact other sections of your plumbing. Stained or discolored water is a sign you should schedule water heater repair. Your expert plumber will perform a full inspection to decide the best course of action, even if that means replacing the water heater entirely.


Unpleasant Smell/Taste

Even comparatively small amounts of rust, chemicals, bacteria or sediment can affect the quality of your water. These substances could cause discoloration or produce an unpleasant taste or smell. Foul odors might be because of a bad anode rod. Even if bad odors aren’t affecting the water heater itself, we’ll still do our best to find out what’s happened.
