Our Water Heater Service Professionals at Drain Rooter USA Plumbing understand that without hot water, it is extremely challenging to complete daily activities such as showering, doing laundry, washing dishes and more. That being said, we are available around the clock to handle your traditional water heater and tankless water heater emergencies.
You can help to prevent this by having your water heater cleaned regularly, getting your water treated, and reducing your overall water heater temperature to 130 degrees. If the water heater has become rusty then it may be time to replace your water heater altogether.
One of the first things you should check is to see if the pilot light is still on. If not, then check the manual for your specific unit on how to reignite the light.
If your water heater uses gas, then you could potentially have a leak in your gas line, which can be extremely dangerous. If you smell a rotten egg odor, turn off your gas and call a professional right away.
In some instances, the water is not getting hot enough due to the thermostat settings, or because the thermostat is broken entirely. A water heater expert can help you determine if that is the issue and get it replaced.
