Most of the homes in Australia have electric hot water heaters,mainly because they are easy to install and repair, but also since they work via easily available electricity supply. There are mainly two types of heaters: Instantaneous electric hot water heaters that heat water for instant use, or electric hot water tanks that store a large quantity of water. Whatever the type of electric hot water heater system, Quick Spark can help you quickly find the fault and repair it in the most reliable manner.

Electric hot water heaters need to be serviced regularly to detect any faults and to determine whether it requires repairs or replacement. Some common clues tell you that the electric hot water heater faults need to be seen to urgently. Read below to find out about these.

Hot water heater making weird sounds

Though it is normal for an electric hot water heater to make some sounds like gurgling or sizzling sounds, it is prudent to get it checked for any faults. On the other hand, a bubbling sound coming from your electric hot water heater is an indication that it is overheating and needs the immediate attention of a licensed electrician.

Muddy or reddish, smelly water

If the hot water coming from your heater is reddish or muddy and smells rusty, it is time to get it checked by a professional. This could be due to corrosion inside the hot water heater and may involve a faulty anode that needs replacement.

Not enough hot water

In the event of your home frequently running out of hot water, it might be time to assess whether the electric water heater is of the right capacity to cater to your home’s needs. If this is not the case, then the reasons for your not having enough hot water can be due to broken electrical parts, faulty thermostat, or leaking pipes or valves. In such a scenario, you must engage the expert services of a licensed electrician to find the fault and repair it quickly before it becomes a safety hazard.

Too much hot water

If the water coming from your taps is too hot, it is a faulty or broken thermostat issue. Call Quick spark to determine whether it needs to be repaired or replaced.
