Water Heaters for California Homes
Imagine. You just got home from a long day at work, and all you want to do is step into a nice hot shower and relax. You turn on the faucet and feel the water drench you… in an ice bath! Without a properly working water heater, this could be your reality.
The licensed electricians at Home Team Electric have all the tools and knowledge they need to repair your electric water heater or install a brand new one. Here are some of the most common signs your water heater needs professional attention:
- No Hot Water – If you can’t seem to get hot water to flow in your sink or shower, there is probably an issue with the electrical components of your water heater. First check to see if a circuit breaker has tripped. If not, then electric heating elements may need to be replaced.
- Not Enough Hot Water – If you start off your shower strong with plenty of nice warm water, only to have a chilling icy deluge engulf you moments later, your water heater is not functioning correctly. Your water heater’s thermostat may need to be adjusted for specific heating elements. While you can adjust the thermostat yourself, it is not a foolproof solution. It is always best to have a professional investigate problems. Other reasons for a slow decrease of hot water could include a faulty thermostat, a faulty heating element, or loose watering. Our Home Team Electric team can easily assess the problems with your water heater and promptly provide a solution.
- Water Too Hot – On the other hand, if your water is scalding you as it touches your skin, that is equally as problematic. This usually stems from thermostat issues as well.
