How Do I Know When My Water Heater Requires a Repair?

There is no one surefire sign your water heater requires repair or maintenance work. In fact, because it’s an appliance you probably don’t even think about most days, it can be hard to spot the signs something is wrong before it’s too late. However, it is worth knowing what to watch out for, lest you end up having to unnecessarily replace a water because you waited too long to have it serviced.

Common signs you should call a technician to have your water heater repaired include:

  • A lack of hot water
  • Rumbling or creaking noises
  • Your water looks cloudy
  • Your pressure relief valve is leaky or faulty
  • The tank is leaking

How Do I Know Which Water Heater Is Right for Me?

When it comes to installing a new water heater, there are two options you need to consider: traditional tank water heaters and tankless water heaters. Classic tank water heaters store hot water as needed, which is why you sometimes have to wait for hot water access while using them. Tankless water heaters require a natural gas line to run, however, they present a major advantage in that they heat water on-demand—i.e. no more cold showers!

A few things to consider when deciding between a traditional tank and tankless water heater are:

  • Overall Savings: As energy costs continue to rise in Manassas and around the country, tankless systems are steadily growing in popularity. It’s not uncommon for the average family to spend hundreds of dollars a month on gas for their cars, which is to say nothing of gas and electricity expenses within the home. Tankless water heaters present an attractive alternative to rising energy rates, as they’re not forced to keep 50-100 gallons of water hot at one time. In fact, the annual savings with a tankless water heater often total $100 or more annually for large families.
  • Installation Costs: While tankless water heaters frequently save money overtime, it is worth mentioning that they are much more expensive to install. Ultimately, for many homeowners, the choice between tank and tankless water heaters comes down to long-term energy efficiency and costly upfront installation.
  • More Hot Water: Traditional, 75-gallon tank water heaters tend to run out of hot water pretty quickly, despite their size. Consider: anytime two people in your home are using different showers at once. That’s why for those with large families, or who just put a premium on the comfort of warm water, it’s hard to deny the appeal of the endless hot water supply provided by tankless heaters.

What Is the Appropriate Sizing for Water Heater Replacement?

Figuring out the appropriate size for your replacement water heater has a lot to do with the size of your home overall, as well as how many people are living there. For instance, if it’s just you and one other person, you probably can get by with a smaller unit—one that only holds 30-40 gallons. For families of 4 or more, however, you will want to consider a 40-50 gallon tank, while families of 5+ should consider going with a 50-80 gallon model (assuming everyone bathes regularly, that is!) The storage area and general location where the water heater will go also plays a big role in what type to purchase.

Ultimately, the best thing to do when considering a new water heater is simply to consult with our professional Manassas plumbers. We can install, repair, and replace a range of equipment, and also provide annual tune-ups to keep your appliances running smoothly year-round!

Happy Customers

  • Jonathan and Genti are our go-to experts!

    “We took advantage of an inspection promotion from My Plumber, knowing our 50+ year old house had some concerns. Genti arrived and pointed out which valves and fixtures were aging, and patiently explained a potential path forward to avoid any problems. We'll make a plan and look forward to having Genti back to update our home. Then Jonathan arrived, and he was great at looking at the furnace and our crazy RELAC system, which he was familiar with. He changed our filter and helped me to understand how the furnace worked with the NEST and made sure it was in top shape. Our furnace is fairly new, but he was outstanding at explaining routine maintenance and how we can keep it running in top shape. What a great guy! I'm super impressed with your employees! I'm so delighted with MyPlumber and this care in looking out for our older home, I signed up for the Priority Club today. Thanks to Jonathan and Genti for keeping our peace of mind with our aging house systems, and being so patient with my questions and our curious pets.”

  • “Lee Davison arrived 20 minutes ahead of scheduled time, was very professional, polite, personable. He thoroughly explained the thermostat replacement, tested it in all modes to ensure it functioned properly, and answered any questions I had. It was truly a pleasure to have him install the thermostat, and he is another fine representative of your company. Once again , My Plumber has exceeded my expectations! Many companies could learn a lot from how your company performs and treats their customers. Thank you!”

  • “My Plumber has just worked themselves to become my favorite plumbing company. I was faced with an expensive plumbing problem and wondered for months how I was going to fix it. Several plumbing companies came and looked at the issue, charged me for the time spent to consider the issue, and left saying they could not fix it. I called for an entirely different issue of removing an object stuck in one of our school's toilets. I happened to unconvincingly asked them if they did mechanical plumbing. They said yes. I felt that the outcome was going to be the same as the other companies that look at the plumbing issue. To my surprise, they told me they could fix the issue. My thoughts then went to the fee it would require to fix it. They quoted a fee that was 1/4 of what I was previously quoted by any company. I could not believe it. Right away, i told them to go ahead with the work. The work was completed without any problem. My staff members all told what nice gentlement they were while working on this issue. They did the work with a smile despite the difficult nature of it. Thank you, Josh and crew!”
