Common Water Heater Problems Near Furlong Township PA

January 9, 2024

You rely on your home’s water heater to provide warm or hot water whenever you need or want it. The last thing you want is to look forward to a hot shower and instead face a blast of freezing water. If you’re experiencing a problem with your water heater, contact the Furlong heating experts at Chud Air Conditioning, Heating, and Duct Cleaning.

Common Water Heater Problems

  • If the water that comes out of a faucet or shower head is too hot or too cold, your water heater may need to be serviced. A technician can figure out if the problem is due to the power supply, thermostat, or heating element.
  • Leaks are common and can have a variety of causes. The solution may be as simple as tightening a loose connection, or it may be necessary to replace the water heater.
  • If water coming out of your faucets has a foul odor, it may be due to an accumulation of bacteria. You can try flushing and cleaning the tank. If that doesn’t help, have the water heater inspected.
  • Rusty water is a sign that the water heater’s tank is corroding. We may be able to fix the problem in some cases, or we may need to install a new water heater.
  • Sediment can build up and burn, which can cause a water heater to make strange noises. Flushing the water heater may solve the problem. If it doesn’t, the heating element may be failing, and you may need a new water heater.

  • “I had a great experience with Chud. Lewis and Sebastian did a fantastic job. They were communicative and on time, explained everything that they would be doing to clean my HVAC ductwork, answered all of my questions, were honest about not being able to properly clean my dryer vent, and cleaned up after they were done. They also went above and beyond, even cleaning dust from each slat of the return vent. Highly recommend.”

  • “We rely on Chud Duct Cleaning to perform our regular duct cleaning in our home. Your service technicians Lewis and Sebastian arrived promptly, introduced themselves and got right to work. Our home has many vents behind and under furniture, which was moved and replaced as if nothing ever happened. My home was carefully prepared and respected throughout the entire process. An access panel was replaced for a more pleasant look and better access in the future. I will not hesitate to use this company for service again.”
