Common Hot Water Problems

There are several commonly experienced hot water problems you are at risk of encountering at your property. Let’s explore some common hot water issues, their causes, and how our expert solutions can restore your hot water system to optimal functionality.

Lack of Hot Water: One of the most common issues homeowners face is a sudden reduction or complete lack of hot water. This could be due to a faulty heating element, thermostat issues, or sediment buildup in the tank. You can read more about the specific hot water heater problems here.

Low Water Pressure: Low hot water pressure can make daily tasks like showering or doing the dishes frustrating. It can result from mineral deposits clogging the pipes or a faulty pressure regulator.

Strange Noises: Unusual noises coming from your hot water system, such as popping or banging sounds, often indicate sediment buildup or a failing heating element.

Water Leaks: Leaking water heaters can cause structural damage and skyrocket your utility bills. Leakage is typically caused by corrosion or a faulty relief valve.
