3 Signs Your Hot Water Heater Needs Repair

Hot water is often taken for granted household amenity. When water heaters stop working, homeowners may scramble to find a plumbing company online. Dracut homeowners no longer must second guess the credibility of plumbers when they select New Era Plumbing & HVAC, formerly known as SDP Plumbing. In order to promote client-customer transparency, we have compiled a list of a water heater repair signs for you convince.

Keep a Safe Distance from the Water Heater’s Electrical Wiring

It is important to look but not touch a water heater’s electrical wiring if the machine begins to malfunction. Water heaters short circuit when wires dislodge from the collective circuit structure. If Dracut residents spot water leaks around the base of water heaters, it is best not to check out the circuit breaker or look for unfixed wires. Furthermore, the water heater should not be tampered with in any way if there are loose wires.

Sediment Buildup in Tanks is a Prevalent Issue

Sediment buildup is among the most common water heater issues and compromises steady energy bills, the condition of hot water, and the condition of tanks. There are many steps with cleansing the water heater tank from pesky buildups, which can become dangerous if New Era Plumbing & HVAC does not handle the cleaning. In the event of any water heater inspections and cleaning, the device must be shut off. Afterward, our plumbers will conduct the necessary precautions and remove the sediment from the tank.

There is Leaking Water

Loose or broken water heater valves often symptomize leaking water heater tanks. Do not attempt to tamper with the electrical or mop up the water in this circumstance. Getting electrocuted is a serious problem among homeowners that try to fix leaking heaters.

I am proud of the skills and knowledge I have gained during my 15 years working Plumbing and HVAC. I started as an apprentice, assigned to do basic tasks like carrying tools and materials, drilling holes and digging trenches. I was hungry to learn and expand my career opportunities, so I enrolled in an after-school training program for both my HVAC training and Journeyman license. I loved learning about both trades and felt like I was finally on the right track. When I passed my Journeyman Plumbing exam, I started to do side jobs which allowed me to experience the business owner side of things. This completely changed my perspective on my career and drove me to continue to pursue owning my own Plumbing & HVAC business. I continued my training and earned my Master’s license. With the support of my amazing wife, I started my own business SDP Plumbing, Heating and Cooling in 2016. Three years later, we rebranded the company as New Era Plumbing & HVAC. I could not be more proud of my career path and my company. Our core values are: Faith, Family, Empathy, Giving, Service and Quality. I train our team on adhering to these every day. We love taking care of our customers and are proud to serve our community.
