PILOT LIGHT OUT OR LOST YOUR HOT WATER?
There are various reasons that your water heater might be malfunctioning. Common water heater problems include:
- Pilot light off: The most likely reason for no hot water is an extinguished pilot light. You should follow the manufacturer’s directions to turn on the pilot. These instructions are often found on a label on the front of the water heater itself. If you get the pilot lit and it still doesn’t result in hot water, you should have a professional inspect your unit to determine the underlying cause.
- Broken thermostat: If your water isn’t getting hot enough anymore, the issue could be with your thermostat. It may simply need to be adjusted to a higher temperature. If that fails to heat your water, the thermostat could be broken and will need to be replaced.
- Damaged plumbing connections: Connections can start to wear down after a while, which can eventually cause water to leak and pool around the tank. To fix the issue, simply replace any connections that are cracked, corroded, or showing other signs of deterioration.
- Gas leak: For gas water heaters that stop working, a leak could be to blame. Gas has a distinctive rotten egg-like smell—if you notice it, you should put in a call to a plumber to repair the leak for you as soon as possible.
- Sediment: Over time, sediment can build up at the bottom of your water heater tank. If left untreated, it will begin to rust the tank and affect the performance of your water heater. Regular maintenance can help keep rust at bay so that you can maximize the investment you’ve made in your water heater.
- Faulty heating element: A broken heating element is another reason why you might not have hot water. A malfunctioning element won’t get your water hot enough, or it may cause you to run out of hot water much faster than usual. You may simply need to repair or replace the heating element to get your hot water running again.
Most water heaters are designed to last about 10 years. Once they get close to that, they start to break down and require frequent repairs. Sometimes, it’s more cost-effective and efficient to replace the water heater altogether.
