Signs of Water Heater Damage to Look Out For


The Water Heater Is Leaking

Just like any other part of your plumbing, the water heater can start leaking. What’s more, leaks can appear in many different parts of your water heater, especially as they age. If the water heater has pools of standing water or leaks coming from nearby pipes, let us know! Where the leak appears helps inform how serious the problem may be.

For instance, if the leak is near the top of the water heater, check the piping connections for corrosion or cracking. Oftentimes these leaks can be fixed quickly. However, if the leak is closer to the bottom of the water heater, it could be a sign of a serious problem. Most often it’s because the tank has cracked open due to age or extensive corrosion. In these cases, it may be best to request a free quote for water heater installation instead.


Water Is Too Hot or Cold

Excessive or weak heating can be caused by sediment buildup, a malfunctioning thermostat and even when there’s damage to the system’s heating element (only relates to electric models). For gas water heaters, the problem might be a failed pilot light, which can sometimes happen if it becomes too dirty. When you notice a sudden drop in your supply of hot water or if it’s taking longer than usual to heat up, call a Freedom Heating & Cooling plumbing technician.


Rust or Discoloration

The older your water heater is, the more susceptible it is to mineral and chemical buildup, causing internal components to rust. This rust can eventually lead to corrosion, which can also spread to other parts of your plumbing system. Rust or discoloration in your hot water is a sign that your water heater is in need of repair. Our team of experts can inspect your water heater and determine the best course of action to prevent further damage.


Unpleasant Smell/Taste

Even small amounts of rust, chemicals, bacteria or sediment could lower your property’s water quality. This can result in discoloration or produce an unpleasant taste or smell. Foul odors might be because of a bad anode rod. Even if bad odors aren’t the result of a problem with your water heater, we’ll still try and resolve the issue as soon as we can.
