Signs Your Water Heater Is Struggling

You might never think about it, because it is never in view, but the water heater is one of the most important parts of your South Yarra, Glen Iris or Malvern East home. Without it, you will have no hot water for your shower, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, washing machine, dishwasher and so forth. Basically, it is all useless. This is why it is important to make sure that the water heater – electrical or gas – is always running smoothly. But how can you tell if your water heater is struggling? We got some key signs for you to look out for.

  • How’s the water working?
    Throwing the hot water on full blast and noticing that is only mildly warm? This is a clear sign that your water heater is struggling. The heat of your water should always reflect the temperature that you have put it up to.

  • What is the colour of your flame?
    This only relates to gas powered hot water systems. If you notice that the flame is burning yellow, instead of a bright blue, it means that it is struggling to power up.

  • There are holes everywhere.
    Look at your heater and see if there are leaks or puddles of around. If so, there is clear indication that there is a hole in your heater system. This will mean that no hot water is going through it.

  • Growths.
    Mould and mildew all over your heater? Yes, you got problems. Not only is mould and mildew disgusting to look at, filled with health-affecting bacteria, but it is also damaging to the heater.

  • There’s rust too.
    Much like mould and mildew, if there is also rust all over your heater, it’s a case that there is a leak somewhere, or your heater is nearing the end of its lifespan.
