7 Signs That You Need To Install A New Water Heater
A water heater is crucial to any Singaporean household as it provides a steady and reliable supply of hot water. The importance of proper water heater installation should therefore not be understated, since provides a safer user experience and minimizes future risks. That said, there are 7 common water heater issues that could necessitate a replacement, which we have listed below:
Water Is Not Hot
A major reason why your water heater is not heating up the water properly is that its heating element is faulty. If you are using a storage water heater, it could also be that the storage capacity is insufficient to meet your family’s needs.
Water Is Too Hot
If the water from your water heater is too hot, it could be due to a faulty thermostat. The overheating of water can be very dangerous, inducing scalds or even the building up of pressure. If adjusting the temperature controls does not solve the issue, you should engage professional water heater services as soon as possible.
Water Is Discolored
Discolored water can be an indicator of corrosion within your water heater. Do not consume the water and seek professional assistance immediately. The specialists will identify the cause of the discolored water and recommend the necessary fixes.
Water Pressure Is Low
There are ways of detecting a plumbing leak, which can contribute to low water pressure from your water heater. When that happens, acquire professional plumbing services for a quick fix. If you feel that the water pressure is still too low, please check with your town council and they will advise or send a technician over to check.
Water Heater Leaks
A water heater leak usually indicates that either the structural integrity of the water heater has been compromised, or that there is loose plumbing somewhere. Identifying the root cause of the issue will determine the course of action that should be taken.
Water Heater Smells Bad
Smelly water is typically caused by bacterial growth inside the storage tank. A possible treatment would be a tank flush. The tank should also be chemically treated regularly to eradicate future bacterial growth.
Water Heater Is Hissing
If your water heater hisses during or immediately after use, it could be that the pressure release valve is faulty. Engage a water heater professional to assess the situation and advise if a water heater replacement is necessary.
Types of Water Heater
There are some differences between storage water heaters and instant water heaters that you might want to look into when selecting a model to replace your water heater.
Storage Water Heater
A storage water heater heats and stores the hot water in its storage tank for future use. This means that, as long as you have enough hot water stored, you will always have a reliable supply of hot water even in the event of a power failure.
Instant Water Heater
An instant water heater takes up less space than a storage water heater since it does not store water in a tank. As such, it consumes less energy and requires less piping. An instant water heater is more suitable for families with a lower water consumption rate.
Multipoint Water Heaters
One of the benefits of multipoint water heater installation is that you only need to install one unit to supply hot water to multiple points in your home, like your common toilet and your master toilet. This is more cost effective than having to install multiple units. However, you may experience a lower water pressure when both units are being used at the same time.
Installing/Replacing Your Water Heater
When you have decided on your ideal water heater from our in-house water heater catalogue or follow a water heater buying guide, you will want to prepare for the subsequent installation/replacement. Learning about the 4 ways to prepare for a water heater installation/replacement can allow you to better inspect while the handyman is doing the installation.
Turn Off The Electricity Supply To The Water Heater
This can help to prevent a short circuit from happening while the installation/replacement is taking place.
Ensure Adequate Ventilation
Good ventilation is necessary to help vent the steam and dust vapor that may be produced during water heater installation/replacement.
Installing/Replacing Your Water Heater
Drain The Water Heater Tank
If you are using a storage water heater, you can drain the remaining hot water so as to prevent scalding and other related accidents from occurring.
Plan For Electrical Access
Vacate the nearest electrical access point to your toilet(s) so that the handyman can more easily power-up the equipment they need to install/replace your water heater.
Some of the quick fixes above may be too complicated to attempt. If you require water heater installation/replacement, you need to find a professional handyman near you, like one from A1 Handyman Singapore to make sure that the job is done properly.
