water heater

Here are the main types of heaters:

  • Conventional: Newer-model tank water heaters have better insulation than older ones. They retain heat longer and use less energy. These familiar appliances come in various sizes.
  • Hybrid: These tank water heaters use heat-pump technology. They’re more energy efficient than conventional models.
  • Tankless: Energy-efficient and compact, tankless water heaters produce hot water on demand. Some models come with a small auxiliary tank to ensure the fast delivery of hot water.


Signs Your Water Heater Is Failing

  • Discolored water: Brown hot water indicates the tank may be rusting. If you suspect a problem with rust, call Simpson Plumbing before the heater develops a leak. We’ll check the tank and suggest a remedy.
  • Rumbling noises: Sediment in a water heater tank causes the unit to rumble and may eventually damage the heating element or tank lining. A buildup of sediment is caused when naturally occurring minerals in the water solidify and settle.
  • Puddle near the heater: Check around the heater to determine if the unit is leaking or if the water is coming from elsewhere. A cracked tank generally isn’t worth repairing. Call a plumber to recommend a new water heater or to repair the leak if it’s coming from another source.

The above signs could indicate an appliance that has run its course. For other types of problems, use our troubleshooting guide to diagnose water heater problems. Some of the items in our guide are best left to a plumber, electrician or gas company.
