Port Charlotte water heater repair tips
If you are having problems with your hot water system and water heater repair in Port Charlotte we would love to be able to help. However, if you are just looking for a little troubleshooting advice and are handy with a wrench, here are a few tips that just might help.
No hot water at all
For this symptom, you might just need to check your electric breakers. Sometimes the breaker that controls the hot water heater may trip. If there are no breakers that have tripped, then your next item to check would be the unit’s thermostat. Try pushing the reset button and see if your unit will start to function normally. If not, it is time to give us a call.
Some hot water, but it goes quickly
Let us assume that your unit was properly sized for your home size and consumption habits. If this is the case, then the likely culprit could be the lower heating element. A malfunctioning lower element will not be able to properly heat the tank contents.
You have lots of warm water but is is not getting hot enough
When you are experiencing this type of problem, you will probably be suffering the effects of a defective upper heating element. The problem here is that the lower heating element is doing its job and some of the water is being heated, but the demands are just too much for it because of the bad upper heating element.
If you would like to have the problem taken care of for you with no stress and no mess to clean up, let one of our local Port Charlotte plumbers come to the rescue.
Water Heater Maintenance
With proper care your water heater can last for several years. What is proper maintenance? Well, once a year you should take a little bit of time to flush the tank to remove sediment.
Before you attempt to drain and flush your unit, always switch off the power to the unit and allow the water inside the tank to cool. Next turn off the supply valve and attach a hose to the drain valve so that you can direct the tank contents to a drain or outside.
Now you are ready to turn the drain valve on and open one of your homes hot water faucets so that air can enter the system. After you have drained the tank contents, now comes the flushing part. Turn the unit’s incoming supply valve on and off until you see clear water being drained. You are pretty much finished now. Simply turn off the drain valve, close the hot faucet you opened earlier, and turn on the water supply.
