Although short periods without hot water are normal for traditional storage tank water heaters, extensive outages or other inconveniences could signal a bigger problem with your unit. Below are common signs of water heater problems that you shouldn’t ignore:
- A lack of hot water could indicate an issue with the system’s fuel supply, thermostat, thermocouple, or heating element.
- If your water heater’s tank is leaking, the tank may be corroded or a valve damaged.
- A sudden increase in your energy bills could be caused by mineral buildup in your water tank.
- Rust-colored hot water usually indicates a problem with your water heater’s storage tank.
- Bad-smelling hot water may suggest bacteria in your water heater’s storage tank.
- If your water heater is making a lot of noise, there may be scale buildup on the heating elements, excessive sediment settling in the tank, a leaking valve, or a crack in the tank.
- When the unit shuts off repeatedly or trips a circuit breaker, you may have an issue with the power source.

Why does it take so long for my water to heat up?
The further your faucet is from the water heater, the longer it takes for hot water to travel from the tank to your shower, tub, or sink. However, if your water seems to take longer to heat up, it could also indicate a buildup of sediment in the tank or a water heater malfunction.
Why won't my heater's pilot light stay lit?
A pilot light that keeps going out could indicate a dirty pilot tube, a kink in the flex tube, or an obstructed or damaged thermocouple.
If you have any issues with your pilot light, call Signature HVAC at 484-247-4271.
