When your water heater starts to fail, several aspects of your life may begin to suffer. The quicker you spot the signs of failure, the quicker you can replace or repair your water heater and continue to live comfortably. Here are a few signs that your water heater could be failing and in need of repair or replacement.
If you notice that your water fluctuates in temperature and will not stay consistent, this is a sign that your water heater could be failing. If you are experiencing this problem, examine the thermostat on your water-heating unit. A setting between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit provides an optimal temperature for your hot water. If it is already set within this temperature range, your heater is likely at fault.
If you have sediment in your tank, you may hear strange sounds when you use your water. These sounds include knocking, squealing, or creaking. Giving the tank a flush can help solve the problem if sediment build up is indeed the cause, but there is also a chance that your heating element has burnt out. If this is the case, a water heater replacement becomes necessary.
Lack of Hot Water
The purpose of your water heater is to provide hot water; if it is not adequately doing its job, it’s time to either replace the water heater itself or one or more of its components. A malfunctioning heating element can cause a complete lack of hot water, and a broken gas thermocouple can have the same effect.

This was our first time using Ace Plumbing and it was a fantastic experience. The gentleman Dennis, who came out was unbelievable. I have already passed out all of his business cards at the beauty shop that I go to. Our air conditioning went out and we got a referral from the neighbor for another place. They could not make it out for many days...
