Signs Your Water Heater Needs Professional Repair 

There are many signs that homeowners should watch out for that may indicate the need for professional water heater repair, including:

  • Insufficient hot water: If you frequently find yourself running out of hot water or experiencing a decline in water temperature during usage, it may indicate a problem with your water heater that requires professional attention.
  • Strange noises: Unusual noises such as rumbling, popping, or banging from your water heater could indicate sediment buildup or a faulty heating element that demands immediate inspection.
  • Water leaks: Any signs of water pooling around your water heater or dripping from connections should not be ignored. Leaks can lead to water damage and should be addressed promptly.
  • Discolored or rusty water: If your hot water appears rusty or discolored, it could indicate corrosion inside your water heater tank. This can affect water quality and the overall performance of your system.

Call 616-458-7304 to request water heater repairs if you notice these signs.

Repair vs. Replacement: How To Know When It’s Time To Upgrade

Determining whether to repair or replace your water heater depends on several factors. Generally, repair is recommended if:

  • The water heater is relatively new, and the repair cost is significantly less than a replacement.
  • The issue is isolated and can be fixed without compromising the overall performance and efficiency of the system.
  • The repair will extend the water heater’s life span, and there are no recurring or underlying issues.

However, replacement may be the better option when:

  • The water heater is old and nearing the end of its expected life span.
  • Repairs are frequent, costly, and no longer a sustainable solution.
  • The current water heater is inefficient, and upgrading to a more energy-efficient model will provide long-term savings.

Not sure whether repair or replacement is the better option? Trust our expert plumbers to provide the honest recommendation you can trust.

Frequently Asked Questions

Having your water heater serviced annually is recommended to ensure optimal performance and detect any issues early on. Regular maintenance can extend the life span of your water heater and prevent costly repairs. 

Yes, tankless water heaters are generally more energy-efficient because they only heat water on demand. Unlike traditional water heaters, which continuously heat and store hot water, tankless systems can provide significant energy savings over time.
