Gas Hot Water HeaterA gas water heater is a fairly simple system. However, because it utilizes natural gas, it does create a risk for gas leaks. These hot water heaters have a gas burner under their tanks that heat up your water. Gas hot water heaters are a different kind of animal compared to other types. Although there are some similarities between pretty much any hot water heater, gas ones should always be handled with extra care due to their use of an open flame.

Common Problems

Just Gas Water Heaters

  • Pilot Light Out- If you’re taking a shower, and the next thing you know, you have icicles hanging from your nose, you might have a problem with your pilot light. The pilot light is similar to the pilot light in your stove top. It’s responsible for the actual lighting of the burner under the water tank. It’s important to call a licensed plumber, as it’s dealing with the gas, which can potentially leak, causing your home to fill with deadly gas.

All Water Heaters

  • Leaking Tank- Leaking tanks can cause some real problems. How much water is in your hot water heater right now? Now think about all that water dripping on the floor and soaking through the drywall, causing dangerous mold for you and your family. Your tank could be leaking due to a poor fitting, a faulty drain valve, or even a cracked tank. So if you want the job done right, make sure to call a trusted plumber in Fort Worth, TX at (817) 560-4144.
  • Pressure Relief Valve- The pressure relief valve is pretty much the thing that keeps your tank from blowing up, making it vitally important. When hot water heats up, it creates pressure inside of the tank, and when it builds up too much, the pressure relief valve kicks in and releases the excess pressure. Many times, when this valve goes bad, it creates a huge mess, spraying water all over the floor.

Hot water heaters can be a huge hassle, and an even bigger pain when you’ve been without hot water for a while. So when you’re looking for gas water heater repair in Fort Worth, TX, make sure to give Westside Plumbing a call (817) 560-4144!
