Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair

There are times when you might not notice a problem with your traditional water heater until it’s too late and a system-wide breakdown occurs. But more often than not, there will be distinct warning signs that something is amiss. It’s important to call our professional repair technicians as soon as you notice a problem with your water heater so we can address the issue before it gets worse.

Common signs your water heater needs repair include:

Strange Noises

Knocking, hissing, banging, and any other sounds that aren’t common or are louder than normal are signs your water heater is in trouble. These sounds can signal a dangerous sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, mechanical issues, or other problems that need to be swiftly addressed.


Your water heater should send hot water through your pipes and out of your faucets – there shouldn’t be any water coming from any other parts of the system. A leak could be a sign of a damaged drain valve, and compromised tank, or faulty connections. Our repair experts can diagnose and fix the problem causing the leak before it becomes a flood.

Increased Energy Bills

If you notice your electricity bill has skyrocketed despite a lack of extreme weather or a change in your consumption habits, then there could be a problem with your water heater. When a piece of plumbing or HVAC equipment is experiencing operational issues, it often runs harder and more frequently to try and make up for its lacking efficiency. This results in higher energy bills that could end up costing you more than a quick repair.

Insufficient Hot Water

If you notice you’re running out of hot water much more frequently than normal or the water never seems to get as hot as it used to, there is likely a problem with your hot water heater that needs repair. Many issues could cause a lack of hot water, which is why you need the eye of our expert team to identify and rectify the problem with speed and efficiency.

Repair vs Replacement: What’s Right for Your Water Heater?

While we offer affordable, high-quality repairs, there are times when our team discovers your traditional water heater is beyond repair and it needs to be replaced. We understand buying new HVAC and plumbing equipment is never your top choice, which is why we conduct an exhaustive diagnosis to ensure we’ve done everything we can before suggesting a new installation.

Unfortunately, there comes a time when every appliance must be replaced. If your water heater is experiencing the following factors, it may be time for a replacement instead of a repair:

  • Old Age: A well-maintained traditional water heater will typically last about 10 years. Once they surpass this age, your equipment will more than likely need to be replaced to maintain efficiency.
  • Rusty Water: If your water is rusty or has a metallic taste, this is a sign of rust in your hot water supply. The rust can also be the culprit of leaks from your tank and is the result of corrosion inside the tank that often can’t be repaired.
  • Frequent Repairs: If you find yourself calling our experts more and more frequently to repair your water heater, it may be time to replace it. Frequent repairs can often cost more than a new system, and you will eventually have to replace it in the future anyway.

Whether you need a simple repair or a complete system replacement, Adams Heating & Cooling can provide fast, high-quality traditional water heater service in your Cincinnati, home.
