Should you replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new water heating system.
If your water heater receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate around a decade, depending on how many people live in the home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously discuss replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it might be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Ask an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to give out.
Rumbling or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that deposit has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, resulting in higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra time spent heating your water could produce more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
