Water Heater Failure Emergency Services

Your water heater is an important appliance in your home. It provides you with hot water for bathing, cooking, and cleaning. But what happens when you have a water heater failure?

What Causes a Water Heater to Fail?

There are a number of things that can cause a water heater to fail. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Old age: Water heaters have a lifespan of about 10-15 years. After that, they’re more likely to fail.
  • Mineral buildup: Over time, minerals can build up in your water heater. This can cause the heating element to burn out or the tank to rust.
  • Damage: Water heaters can be damaged by a number of things, including:
    • Power surges: Power surges can damage the electronic components in your water heater.
    • Frozen pipes: Frozen pipes can damage the water heater.
    • Physical damage: Water heaters can be damaged by falling objects or other accidents.


What to Do If Your Water Heater Fails

If you think your water heater has failed, there are a few things you should do:

  1. Turn off the water supply to your water heater. This will prevent the leak from getting worse.
  2. Locate the source of the leak. This may be difficult, but it’s important to find the source of the leak so that the plumber can repair it properly.
  3. Call a professional plumber. Do not attempt to repair a water heater yourself. This could make the problem worse and could also be dangerous.
