Signs You Need Hot Water System Repairs
No one probably gives hot water system repairs in Wollongong much thought until something goes wrong. You rely on your hot water system for bathing, cooking, and cleaning and it’s inconvenient and uncomfortable when it malfunctions. When that happens, you need to call sureplumb. We undertake many jobs on hot water systems, both repairs and replacements, with top quality work and parts. Here’s how to know it’s time to give us a call.
With age, your hot water system is probably just less efficient and more prone to problems. Hot water systems aren’t designed to last forever so it’s a good idea to keep track of how old yours is. Most last an average of 11 years so if yours is that old or older, it’s probably a good idea to consider a replacement. We can help you choose the right hot water systems for your home.
If you aren’t getting clear water when you turn on the taps, chances are you need a new hot water system. The discolouration is likely due to a rusty hot water tank. You’ll probably notice that you’re only seeing rusty water when you use the hot top, which is a good way to determine if this is your problem. Rust inside your hot water tank indicates damage that probably can’t be repaired and you’ll need a new one as soon as possible.
Lack of Hot Water
If you notice your water turning colder more quickly than usual, your hot water system is likely malfunctioning. Not only can this be unpleasant, but it can be unsafe as well. This usually happens as the hot water tank ages, where sediment builds up making it difficult to heat adequate supplies of water. A new tank should fix the issue.
Strange Noises or Smells
Strange sounds or odours coming from your hot water system definitely indicate a problem. You might notice a rumbling or banging noise, which usually happens due to the sediment that builds up in your hot water tank as it gets older. If you detect strange odours from the tank itself or when you run the hot water, your system likely needs to be replaced.
Leaks are never a good sign and can lead to extensive damage inside your home if you don’t figure out what’s causing the problem and get it fixed right away. Leaks can occur in an older unit, but even newer ones can be damaged and lead to leaks, though proper maintenance can control the issue. A leaking tank needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
