Water Heater Repair, Installation & Replacement Franklin IN.
Your home needs hot water for a range of necessities — from dishwashers, laundry, and hot showers, your water heater needs to be in good working condition, free of any operational issues or damages. Your water heater is much like the rest of your plumbing in the sense that everything it does is essential, but it’s easy to forget about as it operates behind the curtain. Of course, if an issue with your water heater does occur, it is apparent and needs attention immediately to keep you from freezing in the shower, or with a mess of dirty dishes and laundry waiting to be done.
There is a considerable amount that can be done for a water heater in the way of preventative maintenance that ensures that your water heater is performing at its best. However, an average water heater only has a lifespan of around 10 years and will likely require some sort of attention from a professional, for repair or simple upkeep, by the end of its life. For any of your water heater needs, the team at Plumb Doctor in Franklin is prepared to provide you with service, from repair to full replacement.
Signs Your Water Heater Needs Attention
There are some signs that your water heater is not performing at its best and therefore needs the attention of a professional. Whether the issue can be resolved with some repairs, or your situation requires a full replacement can be determined by the professionals at Plumb Doctor in Franklin. Regularly scheduled maintenance can help with the assessment of any issues with your water heater, but these signs can also indicate that your water heater needs repair or replacement:
- Lack of hot water. This is the most noticeable issue for an ill-behaving water heater, and it likely will not escape your awareness. If your water heater is no longer providing hot water throughout your home, bring in the Franklin Plumb Doctor team to see what could be going wrong.
- Cloudy or rusty water. As the water heater goes about its business, the buildup of minerals and sediment in the tank may occur. Especially in Franklin, IN, there are a lot of loose sediments in the soil that could potentially lead to rusting and be the culprit of your water heater’s issues. If this is the case, you will notice that the water in your home comes out looking cloudy, tasting metallic, and could potentially carry a faint odor.
- Strange noises. Similar to the effect on water, sediment and minerals in your water heater’s tank could also be causing some strange noises to occur. If the noises are excessive and sound like loud pops or cracks, these could be signals that your water heater is coming close to bursting. This is a dangerous and messy event, and you should call Plumb Doctor in Franklin to have it handled immediately.
- Loss of pressure. There is a good chance that your water heater may be losing pressure simply because the pressure valve needs to be replaced. However, it could also be due to a crack in the tank, in which case a replacement for the tank is needed.
For whatever issues you may be having regarding your water heater, Plumb Doctor in Franklin is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to provide any service that you need, from repair and replacement to installation of a new water heater.
