  1. Inconsistent Temperature – One sign that you likely need water heater repair is inconsistent water temperatures. If your water sometimes comes out of your taps as hot as you want it, but other times comes out lukewarm or cold, then you probably have an issue with your water heater, and you should call our team to come check it out.

Your water heater is designed to keep gallons upon gallons of water hot and ready for use, so if you are running out of hot water after just a few minutes, then something is definitely wrong.
  3. Discolored Water- A third sign that you need hot water repair is discoloration in the water. If the water coming from your taps starts to take on a brownish hue or to contain flecks of rust, then you should give us a call to have the problem checked out right away.
