What Causes Gas Water Heaters to Break?

Eventually, your water heater is going to leak. That’s the most common problem, but the type of leak will determine the repair it needs. A top leak indicates water connections might be loose or disconnected. A leak from the bottom could be a condensation problem. If you have a water heater leak, contact Signature HVAC right away.

Common causes of water heater problems are:

  • Leak – The heating element gasket may be over-tightened or loose. The T&P (temperature and pressure relief) valve could be stuck, overheating, or malfunctioning.
  • No hot water – This could be a broken heating element, pilot light off, faulty thermostat or incorrect thermostat settings, or a tripped circuit breaker.
  • Noises – This could be sediment buildup in the tank or on the heating element.
  • Rust – Your water heater sacrificial anode rod could have failed, or your glass-lined tank has corroded.
  • Smells – The “rotten egg” smell is decayed bacteria that causes a smelly gas to infiltrate your water pipes.
  • Water not hot enough/too slow – We check several causes:
    • Dip tube
    • Heating elements
    • Obstructed flue or vent
    • The water heater may be too small
    • Water lines’ connections
    • Water too hot — The heating element’s thermostat should be set at 120 degrees. It may be set too high.​​​​

Signs You Need Gas Water Heater Repair

  • No hot water
  • Noises (whining, popping, rumbling)
  • Smells/odors
  • Taking too long to heat
  • Water too hot/too cold

Gas Water Heater Repairs in West Chester, PA

Your gas water heater should provide about 10 to 12 years of problem-free service, but that isn’t always the case. ​​​​​​​When you need water heater repair, choose Signature HVAC. Our expert plumbers have the skills and expertise to address all of your concerns quickly and efficiently.

Gas Water Heater Replacement vs. Repair

If your gas water heater is over 10 years old, you may want to bite the bullet and invest in a new water heater. A lot depends on water heater maintenance over the years.

You should replace your water heater if:

  • The repair will be more than 50% of the cost of a new gas water heater.
  • The water heater is near the end of its life.
  • Water heating bills have gotten higher.
  • You’ve already had several repairs.

Signature Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing For Gas Water Heater Repair, Replacement, and Installation

Before investing in a new gas water heater, contact the Signature HVAC plumbing professionals. We can help you choose the right gas water heater model for your home. When selecting your system, we’ll discuss:

  • Capacity – Your lifestyle and the number of people using hot water play a big role in determining the size of your water heater.
  • Dimensions – Location is important in determining the height and width of your water heater. It is also a factor in the installment difficulty and expense.
  • Energy efficiency – The annual cost of operating gas water heaters will vary widely. High-efficiency water heaters can lower your monthly energy use (and bills). They tend to increase your home’s resell value too.
  • Recovery – If you have two people showering, a load of clothes washing, and want to run your dishwasher, can your water heater handle it? How long will it be before you have the hot water you need?

Signature Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing will give you the information you need to make knowledgeable decisions about gas water heater repair and replacement. Our plumbing pros will safely, efficiently, and affordably install your new unit.

Let’s talk about it before you have an emergency. Call 610-738-8310 or contact Signature.
