Reasons Why Your Water Heater Stopped Working
Hot water is an important aspect of our daily lives. We use it for showers, washing our clothes, running appliances, doing dishes, and more. Whenever your water heater fails to function properly you can be left with a major inconvenience on your hands. There are a multitude of reasons why a water heater may stop working, from mechanical to environmental issues, listed below are some of the main reasons why your water heater stopped working:
Loss of Power or Gas: Depending on how your water heater is ran a loss of power or gas may be the reason your water heater is failing to heat your water to temperature. If you have an electric water heater that is no longer heating your water to temp, your problem may be as simple as a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. For gas water heaters, it could be a problem as simple as running out of gas. Make sure to check these quick fixes before calling a plumber to your home or business.
Thermostat: While issues with the thermostat are less common than with the actual heating mechanisms, they do still occur. If you have an issue with your water heater’s thermostat it may cause your water to be unable to reach a warm temperature. Contact AAA Select Plumbing Services to have our Houston plumbing experts inspect your water heater and diagnose your problem. We work quickly for your convenience!
Loss of Water Pressure: Whenever there is a drop in water pressure, your water heater may have difficulty functioning properly and in some cases may stop working entirely. This is due to several influencing factors . Whenever the water temperature or pressure raises too high, the TPR valve will open. In the event that the water-heater inlet is connected directly to the main water supply line without a safety valve, then any increase in the volume of water will most likely flow back to the water main once the water is heated, potentially leading to a leak.
Loose Parts: If you notice water leaking from a fitting on your water heater, it may be because there are loose nuts or bolts.
