Tank Water Heater Services

Tank water heaters are one of the most popular systems on the market because they are efficient and provide plenty of hot water for all home sizes. However, if your water heater tank is installed at an angle, or if the gas connections aren’t hooking up, it can cause your water heater to break down or underperform. If you think your traditional water heater is not performing as it should, contact our Richmond team so we can determine what the issue is with your water heater.

When Is It Time to Replace Your Tank Water Heater?

If your water heater tank is leaking, provides insufficient hot water, or it starts to make strange noises your water heater needs to be repaired. However, some of these issues may be bigger than they seem. Fortunately, Nuckols Plumbing, Heating & Cooling is here to help you with all your water heater needs in Richmond and beyond.

Common signs that your water heater needs to be replaced include:

  • Water spots: If you have noticed any brown spots of dried water around your water heater, there is a high chance that it is leaking. Your water heater may be leaking from the tank because the pressure release valve is broken.
  • Rusted-colored water: If your hot water is discolored, your water heater may be rusted inside.
  • No hot water: If you aren’t getting enough hot water, it likely means that the thermostat for your water heater is broken or burned out.

My Water Heater Tank is Leaking From the Bottom—Can This Be Fixed?

If your water heater tank is leaking from the bottom, it is generally not a repairable issue. The bottom of the tank is where the heating element and other important components are located. When a leak occurs from this area, it usually indicates a significant problem, such as a corroded or cracked tank.

Water heaters have a limited lifespan, typically around 8 to 12 years. Over time, the tank can deteriorate due to constant exposure to water and minerals. Once the tank starts leaking from the bottom, it is often a sign that the unit has reached the end of its useful life and needs to be replaced.

If you notice a leak from your water heater tank's bottom, it's essential to take immediate action. Turn off the power supply or gas source to the water heater and shut off the water supply to prevent further damage and flooding. Then, contact Nuckols to have a licensed plumber assess the situation and recommend the best course of action, which will likely involve replacing the water heater.

Ignoring a leaking water heater can lead to more extensive damage, water wastage, and potential safety hazards. Replacing the old water heater with a new, energy-efficient model will not only provide you with reliable hot water but also save you money on energy bills in the long run.
