Hot Water Heater Repair FAQs

You can always contact our team with questions about water heaters, or repairs. Here are some questions our customers often ask!

Common problems with hot water heaters include:

  • No hot water: this can be caused by a faulty heating element, a broken thermostat, a tripped breaker, or a lack of power to the unit
  • Insufficient hot water: if the hot water heater is not producing enough hot water, it could be due to a worn out heating element, a clogged dip tube, or a faulty thermostat.
  • Leaking: a leaking hot water heater tank can be caused by corrosion, a faulty valve, or a damaged tank.
  • Strange noises: popping, hissing, or rumbling noises can indicate a buildup of sediment in hot water tanks or an issue with the heating element.
  • Rust-colored water: rust-colored water can indicate rust in a hot water tank, or corrosion in the pipes.

If you are experiencing any of the common hot water heater problems listed above, contact Action Furnace right away and let one of our professional service technicians find the problem so we can provide you with an accurate up-front quote for repairs.

We recommend having your hot water heater serviced once per year to ensure all components are functioning properly. Action Furnace technicians can inspect your hot water heater thoroughly and alert you to any issues that need to be addressed.

Some simple maintenance tasks such as replacing the anode rod or flushing the tank can be done by homeowners, but we do not recommend trying to fix your hot water heater by yourself, as this requires specialized tools and knowledge. Trying to fix your water heater on your own can also damage your plumbing or affect your heater’s warranty—so it’s always best to contact Action Furnace for repairs.

The cost of repairing a hot water heater will vary depending on the type of problem, the age and condition of the system, and the cost of parts and labor. On average, repairs can cost between $150 and $450—but contact Action Furnace for an accurate quote you can trust, based on our No Surprise Guarantee for pricing.

If your hot water heater is not working, check the thermostat to ensure that it is set to the correct temperature. If the problem persists, contact Action Furnace for repairs.

The time it takes to repair a hot water heater will vary depending on the type of problem, the age and condition of the system, and the availability of parts. Most repairs can be completed within a day, unless specific components need to be ordered. If your repair is likely to take longer, we’ll let you know as soon as possible so you can prepare accordingly.

If your hot water heater is old and in need of frequent repairs, it may be more cost-effective to replace it. However, if the problem is a simple and inexpensive fix, then a repair may be the more cost-effective option.

Most hot water tanks can last 8-12 years with proper maintenance, while tankless heaters can be maintained for up to 20. Even if your water heater is not experiencing obvious problems, replacing it when it starts reaching the end of its lifespan can be a great way to lower your utility bills (since newer heaters will offer significantly better energy efficiency).

The most common causes of hot water heater breakdowns include a lack of maintenance, mineral buildup, and leaks.

To prevent your hot water heater from breaking down, it is important to have it serviced and maintained at least once a year.

Our professional technicians can flush your hot water tanks, check your water supply lines, and identify any problems or issues we find so that they can be fixed as quickly as possible.
