Since the 1950s, our family-owned business has served clients throughout Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and the Midwest.

How to Tell Your Water Heater Needs Service

There are a few tell-tale signs your water heater is malfunctioning. If you are aware of the signs early enough, you can sometimes fend off complete replacement with hot water heater repair. However, J.C. Dillon’s plumbers can provide necessary installation services if such is required.

  • No Hot Water -The most obvious sign of a water heater not working is the absence of hot water. J.C. Dillon will inspect your water heater’s pilot light, gas connections, thermocouple, and more to determine the reasoning behind its non-responsiveness.
  • Minimal Hot Water -Perhaps your water isn’t as hot as it used to be, or it’s taking a long while to heat up. Even if your water eventually reaches optimal temperatures, your water heater is signifying future failure.
  • Leaking -If you check around a water heater’s pipes and main systems and discover water where it shouldn’t be, you might have a leak! Water heater leaks might not cause issues immediately, but leaks have the potential to cause water damage or place stress on your utility bills.
  • Dirty/Smelly Water -The water from your faucets should always look clear and be without smell. Anything otherwise to the contrary, and there’s a problem with your plumbing! Cloudy water can be caused by mineral deposit buildup in your water heater, while foul odors could result from bacteria growth.
  • Loud Noises/Strange Sounds -Your water heating system should run quietly. However, if you begin noticing an increase in noise from your water heater, your system requires repair or cleaning. Mineral deposits, calcium and dirt can build up in your heater’s tank near crucial components, causing them to emit strange sounds when running. If ignored, said components will begin to break down.
