Bribie Island Hot Water Repair

As with all home appliances, it’s important to maintain your hot water system. However, our local Bribie Island electricians find that many homeowners do not realise that a bit of maintenance on their water heaters can keep their system happy for many years and avoid heating problems. Although many hot water system problems can be easy to ignore, if you have a faulty water heater, it’s important to fix your hot water unit as soon as possible to prevent costly problems that can have long term effects. The licensed Master Electricians at Blue Electrical have put together the below list of common hot water problems for Bribie Island homeowners.

 

Common Signs of a Faulty Hot Water System

Water that is Too Hot or Too Cold

If you notice the temperature of the water coming out of your taps is too hot or too cold, it’s important to take action as soon as possible and ask a professional tradie for hot water repair services. Ignoring changing water heater temperatures can lead to some serious problems.

For example, if your system has been running cooler than usual, this can encourage bacterial growth inside the tank and put family inside your Brisbie Island home at risk. Additionally, your water might therefore become contaminated with bacteria and become discoloured. Not only that but your lukewarm water will also have an unpleasant odour and smell bad!

Even more dangerous is if your hot water system is running too hot. Besides exposing your tank to overpressure and reducing your water heater’s life span, excessively hot hot water can lead to your water tank bursting. This puts your Bribie Island family at risk and in the worst case this can cause serious scalds and burns. If you notice the water coming from your water heater is too hot or cold, please contact us immediately and we can check your elements & temperature control. We offer a 24 hour emergency electrician hot water repair call out service to Bribie Island residents and on the Sunshine Coast, so please contact us as soon as possible on 0423 627 680 or email admin@blueelectrical.com.au for immediate service.

Leaking Water heater

Another common sign of broken hot water systems and malfunctioning water heaters we often see in Bribie and on the Sunshine Coast is leaking water heater tanks. If you notice any pooling water or dribbling around the bottom of your hot water tank, it’s a sure sign the inside of your tank degrading. This dangerous situation can result in tanks bursting or your heater producing rusty coloured hot water. Besides the immediate risks, you’ll also be wasting water and your utility bills will be higher.

If you notice any leaks from your water heater, or pooling water at the base of your hot water service, it’s best to call Bribie Island’s best electricians on 0423 627 680 or email admin@blueelectrical.com.au as soon as possible to check the condition of your hot water tank.

Damaged Pressure Relief Valve

On the hot water system in your Bribie Island home, the function of a pressure relief valve is to regulate water heater tank pressure. By keeping water pressure low, this valve prevents your tank from exploding. As you can understand, this component is extremely important and must be maintained to keep your family safe. However, over time, mineral build up and corrosion can collect around the pressure relief valve. Not only does this affect water heater performance, it also puts the members of your home in Bribie Island at risk should the tank explode or experience a serious hot water leak.

It’s therefore essential to conduct annual inspections of your hot water system, especially the pressure relief valve to look for signs of corrosion or mineral deposits. If you haven’t had your hot water unit inspected in the last 12 months, please make it a point to contact Bribie Island’s most trusted Master Electricians for hot water repair today. We can come out and inspect your hot water system as well as cleaning the pressure relief valve to remove minerals and keep the whole unit in good condition. We offer an affordable 24 hour hot water service across Bribie and the Sunshine Coast so please call us on 0423 627 680 or email admin@blueelectrical.com.au to fix your faulty hot water system today.

Unusual Hot Water System Sounds

If your hot water system is making strange sounds or banging noises, it may be time to call one of our professional Bribie Island Master Electricians for hot water repair. Sometimes a water heater will make gurgling or popping sounds when it’s faulty. Some of these noises can indicate that your tank heating has too much pressure or is overheating. This is a potentially dangerous situation and in this case, we advise you to immediately turn off your system and get on touch for water heater repairs. Contact us for water heater repairs as soon as possible and we’ll be out right away.
