Living without hot water in the house isn’t impossible, but if you’ve grown accustomed to having it like most modern homeowners, it will seem like a mighty big sacrifice if it stops running all of a sudden. That’s why it’s important to have access to a good local plumber with experience fixing and installing water heaters. Fast, accurate service will make your service interruption as brief as possible.

Signs of Water Heater Trouble
Having no hot water in your home is the most telling sign of a water heater problem, but it isn’t the only sign. Other warnings your water heater will give you that it needs repair include:
- Pressure fluctuation: Sometimes, the hot water is still working, but it is intermittent or the water pressure is fluctuating.
- Leaking around the tank: If you see water leaking from around the base of the water tank, then it is only a matter of time before the hot water is affected, so you need professional attention.
- High water bills: Higher than average water bills may indicate a damaged water heater, as does a burnt-out pilot light, or loud noises and gurgling sounds coming from the water heater.

It May Be a Faulty Thermostat
Sometimes, the thermostat on your water heater is the problem, and the heater isn’t getting the right signals. When the thermostat isn’t working correctly, you can expect a wide fluctuation in the water temperature, sometimes it is even too hot. Your plumber will check the thermostat when inspecting the water heater and doing repairs.
