Miami Water Heater Repair

When your Miami water heater system is working as it should, hot water is used virtually for everything, right from the laundry to the showers without a second thought. Once it has stopped working however, the reason for the system’s break down must be detected and repairs ordered. Diagnosing water heater repair Miami problems is important even before you call a hot water heating Miami repair service like Miami Cooling. There are different ways a hot water system could break down. Have any of these ever happened to you?

No Hot Water

In case there is virtually no hot water, the pilot light should be looked at to make sure it has not gone out. In case it is out though, it can be re-lit through the owner’s manual directions if you have them. While it is something you can attempt on your own, a Miami Cooling hot water repair technician can do it easily without any problems. In the case it is a gas water heater, the thermocouple could be faulty and the technician will then advise if a replacement is needed. The pilot could also be turning off once it has been lit which may indicate a faulty pilot control valve. In the case it is an electric water heater, the upper electric or thermostat heating element might have broken down and a replacement required. Is this all Greek to you?

High Pitched Whining And/Or Strange Noises

You might hear some strange, high pitched whining or popping noises from the hot water heater and the reason could be hard-water or mineral scale that has accumulated within the tank, which could be breaking down the system. This calls for tank draining and making sure the sediment has been cleaned out, a job that you might have to call a Miami Cooling water heating repair professional to carry out. It is possible to have excessive sediments building up at the bottom of the hot water tank and not allowing the water to boil. While flushing the water out from the heater and refilling it could fix the problem, it is important to have the water softener checked out.

Seeping Water

In case there is water collecting at the floor around the hot water heater, water is most likely seeping out of the tank, perhaps as a result of a leaky pipe or loose valve. If there is no leaky pipe, tightening the system’s valve should be done. A loose valve means your water heater repair Miami will leak out. While the leak is mostly alluded to defective heating elements, obstructed vent or simply a broken valve.

Smelly Water

There are times the water might begin to smell, in some cases akin to rotten eggs. The reason might be bacterial infection within the hot water heating tank that has fed on the hydrogen gas released by the system’s anode rod. The problem can be fixed by flushing all the water out and then adding two pints of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide, in solution form, for a tank that holds 40 gallons. The solution should be left to remain at the bottom of the tank for around 120 minutes prior to refilling with water. The problem should be fixed but in case it persists, the anode rod should be replaced, mostly with a zinc alloy type of anode rod.

While some of these problems with a hot water heating system can be fixed at home, always remember Miami Cooling, a trusted hot water heating Miami repair service, available 24/7 for all emergencies affecting your hot water system.
