Is My Hot Water Heater Running Optimally?

How do you know if your water heater is working optimally? Like most machines, a heater does not last forever. During the middle of winter, you will want to avoid a catastrophic event. Losing hot water on a cold day can make life very difficult. Let our team of NYC plumbers help you keep hot water running this winter. All systems can benefit from a yearly checkup. Considering that more hot water is used during the winter, getting the inspection at the end of fall or beginning of winter is ideal. However, checkups can be done any time of the year.

Besides annual maintenance, you should call us if you notice any of the below problems:

  1. Odd noises coming from your heater: Not all sounds are bad, so you must be able to distinguish between average and bad. Ideally, you will listen for any new or different noises that occur. If you hear an odd sound, say something to someone before a more significant problem arises.
  2. Discolored water coming from taps: rust can grow in a system, which will damage the system and make your water dirty. If you see reddish/brown water coming from your faucet, give us a call.

Other problems include:

  • Not enough hot water
  • Water is too cold or too hot
  • Leaking around system
  • Age of heater

For more information about adequately maintaining a water heater, please give us a call. Our team of New York City plumbers can help you stay warm this winter.
