Common Water Heater Problems
If you find out your water heater is leaking, switch off your home’s water valve. It’s usually located in your basement, close to your furnace or water heater, or underneath your kitchen sink.
Then contact McKinley Heating Service Experts at 780-800-7092 without delay. Even a minor leak can cause significant damage to your home.
A leaky tank may be hinting it’s time for a new water heater.
Not Enough Hot Water
Getting noor insufficient hot water out of your tap? If you have a gas water heater, there could be an issue with the pilot light.

Not enough hot water may also be a sign that your water heater is on its last leg and needs to be replaced.
Water is Too Hot or Too Cold
Your water heater may be too small. We can help you figure out how much you need and remedy the issue.
Other Water Heater Problems
These signs can be an indication that your water heater is about to break:
- Rumbling noises coming from the tank
- Dirty, cloudy or rusty water
- Water smells bad
- Leaking pressure relief valve
Because water heaters commonly hold 50 gallons of water, failure can lead to a damaging flood.
