Water heaters, like any other home appliances, can get broken. However, hot water heaters tend to get broken easier and faster than other home appliances. This is because they are constantly in use; this means that the more people use hot water from it, the faster it will degrade.
Generally, everyone has a hot water heater at home. The good thing about them apart from their increasing demand of usage (it’s like having an oven on your kitchen counter) is that they consume less energy when compared to other household appliances. Even though this is true, during its service life span or even before then, you will need an expert plumber to take care of leaks in your tankless system.
Reasons Why Water Heaters Get Broken
Aside from the constant use it gets, there are many other reasons why hot water heaters get broken. These include:
• Because of a worn-out thermostat scale - The way how we can tell that your thermostat scale is already worn out is by turning the faucet and seeing if you start getting scorching hot water or relatively cooler than usual. When you turn on your outlet, check for drips. If you notice that the drip turns into a steady stream then this means that your pipes were probably over-pressurized which leads to the wear and tear on your heater.
To counter this issue, find an expert plumber in a town like us who will help fix the problem and install a new thermostat.
• Because of rust and corrosion - This is the most common problem that you might experience in your heater and it can be seen by looking into your tank if you have one. When water comes into contact with metal, especially iron-based metals like the ones found inside the tank, it will rust and corrode; this is because water has hydrogen protein which reacts with other elements to form other compounds (specifical acids). Rust and corrosion eat through metal slowly but surely which can cause leaks in your heater. If you notice any sign of these two at home, call us plumber ASAP!
• Accidental mishandling by installing - Because hot water heaters are housed in a specific area inside the home, not everyone knows how to install one. You should either go to a plumbing school or call an expert plumber for this matter.
