Next Steps When Your Water Heater Breaks Down


Did your water heater break down?

Are you panicking? Not sure what steps to take?

Unfortunately, everything wears out (including water heaters). Most of us aren’t thinking about our water heaters that often, or at all, until they break down or have problems that interrupt our lives. Maintenance is important. If your water heater isn’t checked, you may come home to a flooded basement (most likely not covered by insurance).

Troubleshooting Common Issues with Your Water Heater

The most common issue homeowners report is the water isn’t as hot as they want it to be. This can be caused by a faulty thermostat or a defective heating element. If a new installation isn’t in your budget, small repairs could fix this issue.
