Water Heater LongmontOne typical water heater problem is a leaking storage tank. Unfortunately the water heater must be replaced when the water tank has been compromised, as it cannot be repaired. Another typical water heater problem is that it simply isn’t heating the water. In this case, it is a good idea to have a trained service technician inspect and repair the problem, as the issue could be caused by numerous fault points.

In electric hot water heaters, complete hot water failure is often caused by electrical issues or the high temperature cutoff switch is malfunctioning. Electric hot water heaters only producing warm water is often caused by the failure of one of the water heating elements. There are several other causes for electric hot water heater to fail, and should be inspected by a trained and experienced technician.

Gas hot water heaters have several potential failure points such as bad transformer, failing thermostat, thermocouple, or burner. Water with a lukewarm temperature is often caused by a broken dip tube inside the storage tank. Hot water above the thermostat setting may result of a failing pressure relief valve. Failing gas hot water heaters can become dangerous, and should be inspected and repaired as soon as possible.

Tankless hot water heaters are a bit different than their tank counterparts. Tankless hot water heaters heat the water on demand instead of continually heating water in a tank. Tankless water heaters also have a more involved control system. Tankless water heaters are more expensive as well, not only in the cost of the system, but there is expense in retrofitting the piping for the tankless system as well.
