Water Heater Repair in New Jersey

Try to imagine what life would be like without a hot shower, or clean clothes and you’ll realize just how important a fully functioning water heater is to your day to day life. If something should happen to interrupt the operation of your water heater, you would be highly inconvenienced.

Your water heater doesn’t always give notice that repairs may be in order. In fact, unless you know what to look for, you may be in for a shock when you’re standing in a suddenly-gone-cold shower, or find your dishes soaking in cold sudsy water. A quick check of your water heater may reveal a puddle, a cold pilot light, or any number of issues. Knowing what’s behind these signs will help you to determine whether to repair or replace.

Does My Water Heater Need Repairs?

Obviously, repairing your water heater will be the less expensive way to go, but may not be the most cost-effective. If your water heater is an older model, and has served you well for a number of years, it might be time to replace it. Older water heaters can’t always be repaired, and, if repairs are possible, it may be just the beginning of a series of fixes to postpone the inevitable.

Many common signs that your water heater needs professional repair are:

  • Cold or Fluctuating Water Temperature – If your water temperature begins to fluctuate, either by streaming icy cold, or scalding hot water in your shower, it’s necessary to call a professional. The likely culprit is an element gone bad, and replacing a faulty element is generally reasonably inexpensive. If the water is continually cold, you may have issues with your pilot light, which could relate to your gas line. It’s imperative that a professional technician with experience handle the repairs to your pilot light, for safety’s sake.
  • Discolored Water – Cloudy, or rust-colored water coming from your hot water faucet is a sign of sediment in the tank. The repair for this problem is a thorough flushing and cleaning of the tank. In order to avoid injury to yourself or damage to your water heater, you’ll need to call on a professional. The professionals at Woolley Home Solutions know just how to handle discolored water and have you in the clear, once again.
  • Leaking – Puddles of water at the base of your water heater are the most obvious sign of a water heater in need of repair. If you notice leaking, call us right away. Your tank will need to be drained before repairs can be made. By calling on a professional, you can save further repairs and possibly, replacing your water heater.

Tankless Water Heater Repair in New Jersey

Though relatively new to the American market, tankless water heaters are becoming quite popular. They’re more efficient, friendlier to the environment, and can save you a bundle in utility costs. Because of the durability, and tankless design, this type of water heater typically needs fewer repairs.
