By far this is the most common complaint Barrington Heating & Air receives when we get a call about a broken water heater. This is because it’s the first sign of trouble and something that affects you on a day-by-day basis. Common causes of no hot water include a tripped breaker or a pilot light that went out. These are simple fixes you can do at your home. You simply flip the breaker back to ‘connected’ and turn the pilot light back on. Give your water heater time to heat the water and then check it.

If there is still no hot water, you probably have a bigger problem going on and will need to make a call to us, your local HVAC company, for help. You may be looking at a broken heating element, a broken thermostat, or other malady.


Your water is supposed to be clear. If you see colored water coming from your hot water tap, then this is a sign that your water heater has rusted and is beginning to corrode. There is not a DIY fix for rust-colored water from your water heater. You will need to replace your anode rod to prevent the rust, or you may need a water heater replacement. When you call your local HVAC technician, Barrington Heating


Water heater leaks are easily noticed since you will see water around your water heater that should not be there. There are many causes of water heater leaks, such as broken drain valve caused by too much pressure in your tank, too much condensation buildup, or even rust to the point a leak forms. The plumbing connections could be loose as well. There is no DIY fix for this water heater problem as well, so it’s best to call your HVAC company, Barrington Heating & Air, for an inspection and a water heater repair.


Running out of hot water can be a common occurrence if you use a lot of hot water around the same time, such as the entire family showering in the morning. However, if there is no cause for your hot water to run out and it is happening frequently, it may be time for an inspection and a possible water heater repair. The thermostat could be faulty, the vent could be obstructed, the dip tube could be malfunctioning, or your water heater could be too small for your usage. One option is to invest in a tankless water heater that heats your water on demand. Ask us about tankless water heaters today!
