Water Heater Repair in Van Nuys, CA

How Do I Know I Need Water Heater Repair?

Many homeowners don’t realize they need water heater repair until their faucets stop supplying hot water entirely. While this is the most common problem that points to definite issues with your water heater, others may include:

  • A change in water color
  • A foul odor in your water
  • Leaks around your water heater
  • A spike in your energy bill

Do I Need to Replace or Repair My Water Heater?

The lifespan of the typical water heater lasts for up to 12 years. Determine your water heater’s age and have this information handy for your In A Snap Plumbing technician so they can diagnose your water heater issue.

If you’re unsure of your water heater’s age, you can find this information by looking at the serial number. You should see a letter and number at the beginning, such as A19. The letter designates the month while the number tells you the year. Thus, A19 translates to a manufacturing month and year of January 2019. 

If your water heater is too old or has failed completely, it may need replacement. The age of your water heater helps our technicians understand which option may be best for you.

Common Water Heater Problems

If you’re experiencing any of these water heater problems, contact In A Snap Plumbing for professional water heater repair in Van Nuys, CA.

Like an HVAC system, you can adjust the heat settings on your water heater. If you’ve recently tripped a circuit breaker, the thermostat on your water heater may have changed your water temperature. Press the reset button on your water heater, then check your temperature gauge.

Your water heater may not have a large enough tank to provide the hot water you need and needs replacement. Our experts can guide you in finding a new water heater.

Water heater tanks typically leak when suffering from interior corrosion. It’s best to replace a leaking tank instead of trying to repair it.

Most valve leaks are due to temperature or pressure relief valve damage. In most cases, our professionals can repair a valve leak without completing a total tank replacement.

The dip tube in your water heater brings in cold water from your water lines and pushes it to the bottom of the tank for heating. A broken dip tube distributes cold water into your heated water, interrupting the normal flow in your tank. 

If the heating element in your water heater doesn’t work correctly, your water can take longer to heat up. Replacing or repairing your heating element may fix your water heater issues.

Sediment buildup in your tank can cause your hot water to smell bad or turn rust-colored. Your water heater’s anode rod, which acts as a magnet for corrosive material in your water, may need replacement. If a significant amount of sediment has collected, you may need a new water heater.
