GO Heating, Air & Plumbing was hired by a homeowner to repair their water heater. The homeowner stated it was making a loud humming noise and the pilot light would not stay lit. Our technician arrived and inspected the unit. The technician noticed that the heat exchanger inside was rusted out and leaking coolant. Our team replaced the heat exchanger and checked for leaks before turning the system back up for customer use. We also checked the gas pressure, hot water temperature, and burner flame. The gas pressure was too low to light the pilot light so he adjusted it to 3 pounds per square inch (PSI). He also checked for any leaks in the system before turning it back up for customer use.
The customer was very thankful for our prompt and professional service. The system was back up and running within a couple of hours with no further issues. It’s important to keep your heat pump serviced every year to prevent expensive repairs like this one.
Why is it essential to have your water heater checked frequently?
Water heaters are often the unsung heroes of the home. They quietly provide hot water for showers, wash dishes and laundry, and heat up food. However, they can also be one of the most dangerous appliances in your home if they aren't maintained properly.
It's essential that you have your water heater checked regularly. Here are some reasons why:
Safety - A malfunctioning water heater can pose a serious fire hazard to your family. A damaged or faulty pilot light or gas valve could cause an explosion or even a fire.
Energy efficiency - An inefficient water heater uses more energy than it needs to, which will increase your energy bill without providing any extra warmth or hot water.
Water quality - An old water heater may not be able to heat up as much water as it did when it was newer, which means you might have to wait longer for a shower or bathtub full of hot water.
Water heaters are fairly large and heavy appliances, which makes them difficult to move. It is best to leave this job up to a professional who can ensure that it is done safely and efficiently. A qualified technician will also be able to diagnose any problems with your water heater so that they can be fixed before they become worse.
The good news is that getting your water heater checked by a licensed plumber can help prevent these problems from happening! The best way to avoid problems with your water heater is by having it inspected annually by a professional plumber like GO Heating, Air & Plumbing Inc.
