Reliable Water Heater Repair Services 

Did you know that most water heaters are constantly running? When a tank model water heater stores hot water for future use, consistent heat must be maintained to keep the water at the desired temperature. As one of the most heavily used devices in the home, your water heater experiences slow, but steady deterioration over its long lifetime. When you come home to find your water heater leaking, it’s (typically) the result of thousands of hours of continual use, rather than a catastrophic accident.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

Common signs to look out for include:

  • Inadequate Hot Water: If you're not getting enough hot water or if it's taking longer than usual for your water heater to heat up, it could indicate issues with the heating element, thermostat, or sediment buildup in the tank.
  • Strange Noises: Loud popping, banging, or rumbling noises could indicate sediment buildup or other internal issues, potentially causing overheating.
  • Water Leaks: Any signs of water leakage around your water heater could indicate a problem with the tank or its connections, ranging from minor drips to significant leaks.
  • Rusty Water: Rusty or discolored water may indicate corrosion inside the tank, often caused by aging or a reaction between metal components and the water supply.
  • Foul Odors: Smelly or metallic-tasting water could suggest bacterial growth, corrosion, or organic matter buildup inside the tank.
  • Pilot Light Issues: For gas water heaters, recurring pilot light issues could indicate problems with the thermocouple or gas supply, affecting heating efficiency.
  • Age of the Water Heater: If your water heater is reaching the end of its lifespan (typically 10-15 years), it may show signs of wear, such as leaks, corrosion, or inefficient heating.
  • Fluctuating Temperatures: Unexpected fluctuations in water temperature could signal thermostat or heating element problems, affecting consistent heating.
  • Visible Damage: Dents, cracks, or rust on the water heater may lead to leaks and inefficient heating, requiring prompt attention.
  • High Energy Bills: Sudden increases in energy bills without increased usage could indicate water heater inefficiency due to issues like sediment buildup or faulty components.

Choose the Right Water Heater for Your Killeen Home

Looking to install a brand-new water heater for your home? You may wonder what type of unit will work best for your family’s needs. 

There are several key factors to consider when making this decision, including:

  • Your family’s current and future hot water capacity needs
  • Recovery rate (speed of hot water regeneration)
  • Utility costs (gas, propane, and electric)
  • Manufacturer reliability and warranties
  • Heating efficiency

You can talk with a certified plumber to ensure your water heater options will function correctly with your current plumbing system.
