Common Water Heater Problems
If you notice your water heater is leaking, shut off your home’s water valve. It’s normally located in your basement, close to your furnace or water heater, or under your kitchen sink.
Then reach Parker Pearce Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning at 301-476-4577 without delay. Even a minor leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be indicating you need to get a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting zeroor not enough heated water out of your tap? If you use a gas water heater, the pilot light could be malfunctioning.

A lack of hot water may also be a sign that your water heater is giving out and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be undersized. We can help you figure out how much you use and solve the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can be an indication that your water heater is going out:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Discolored, milky-colored or rusty water
- Water smells bad
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Since water heaters commonly hold 50 gallons of water, a breakdown can lead to a destructive flood.
Like with any different appliance, annual maintenance is critical. We advise checking out our routine maintenance agreement to potentially avoid issues with your water heater.
