Common Water Heater Problems
Water heaters can experience various problems over time. Some common water heater problems include:
- No hot water
- Inadequate hot water
- Strange noises
- Discolored water
- Smelly water
- Pressure relief valve issues
- Pilot light problems
- Tank corrosion
There are many water heaters to choose from when considering gas, electric, tank, and tankless varieties. We’re here to help you decide what kind of hot water heater will work best for your home.
Gas water heaters have these specifications:
- Faster hot water
- Low operating cost
- Operation during power outages
- High installation cost if you don’t already have a gas line
- Open flame
Gas water heaters typically heat water faster with a lower operating cost and stay on during power outages. However, if your home doesn’t already have a gas line, installing a line in your home can be a significant investment. These systems also have an open flame that may need to be relit occasionally, so it’s not as safe as electric systems that have these specifications:
- Low initial cost
- Wide variety of sizes
- Higher operating costs
Electric water heaters range from tank versions to point-of-use applications if you need water for your whole home or only one specific area. This is also a safer option because there is no open flame that may need to be relit. Since all homes already have electrical, installing is more affordable, though the monthly cost is slightly higher than gas heaters. No matter what your home needs, we’re here for you with expert water heater services in Macomb.

We understand that tankless heaters are a relatively new option for many homes that are used to tank water heaters that are inefficient and take up significant space.
Here are answers to a few commonly asked questions about tankless water heaters:
How can it heat water instantly?
Unlike tank heaters that have to reheat 30-50 gallons of water every time, on-demand heaters only heat the water you need as it moves through your heater. This allows a more efficient system that can provide hot water in less than 25 seconds.
Can a tankless heater save me money?
Yes! Tankless water heaters can save you up to $100 a year because they consume less energy and reduce your environmental impact. They are more efficient than tank versions and free up space that you could use for storage or other needs.
Do tankless heaters still have hard water?
Typical tank heaters have significant mineral buildup that creates hard water that reduces the lifespan of your appliances. However, because on-demand heaters don’t store water, there is no opportunity for minerals to settle and build up.
What is a point-of-use tankless water heater?
Typically, a point-of-use heater is used in spaces detached from your home, like a garage or additional dwelling unit. This eliminates the long pipe that would otherwise be used to run hot water to a secondary space.
