Water Heater Repair Services in Delaware County
Water heaters are essential appliances, providing hot water for daily activities such as bathing, cooking, and cleaning. However, like any mechanical system, water heaters can experience problems and malfunctions over time. Feehan Plumbing & Heating provides water heater repairs to address these issues and restore the reliable supply of hot water. Our plumbing experts will assess your water heater's condition, identify the problem, and determine whether a repair or replacement is needed to keep you and your family comfortable.
Common Reasons a Water Heater Isn’t Making Water Hot
When it comes to hot water, we rely heavily on our trusty water heaters to deliver that soothing warmth we've grown accustomed to. There are a few common culprits that could be causing this inconvenient issue.
These problems could be:
- Malfunctioning Thermostat: If your water heater's thermostat is set too low or is faulty, it won't heat the water to your desired temperature. In this case, a simple adjustment or thermostat replacement might be all that's needed to restore hot water to your taps.
- Broken Heating Element: Water heaters typically have two heating elements, one at the top and one at the bottom. If either of these elements wears out or malfunctions, it can result in a lack of hot water. A professional replacement of the faulty element can get your water heater back on track.
- Sediment Buildup: Over time, minerals and debris can accumulate at the bottom of the tank, insulating the water from the heating element. Flushing your tank or scheduling regular maintenance can help prevent this issue and ensure optimal performance.
