Water Heater Repair, Hickory, NC
If something is wrong with your water heater but you can’t figure out what it is, the next step is to call our plumbers for water heater repair in Hickory.
The water heater in your home provides warm water for bathing, meal prep, and handwashing, as well as for use in appliances like the washing machine and dishwasher. If you turn on a faucet and only cold water comes out, start by checking faucets in other rooms and parts of the house, as individual fixtures can stop working. If you live in a cold area and it’s the wintertime, you may also have a frozen pipe. If neither of these seems to be the problem, the next step is to call a plumber for water heater repair.
Some of the other signs that indicate you may be in need of water heater repair include sudden pressure changes or bursts of water coming through a tap, rotten egg odors coming from around the tank, or strange noises coming from the appliance. If you notice any wet spots on the floor around the tank or hear dripping sounds, put a towel down to absorb excess water and give us a call at Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.
Our team offers water heater repair to customers in Hickory, North Carolina and many of the surrounding cities. We start by assessing the problem with your water heater. Some appliances can be repaired, but units that are more than about a decade old should probably be replaced. Manufacturers typically design water heaters to last for about 10 years, so beyond that, repairing could end up being a waste of money because you will most likely continue to have problems.
