When to Replace Your Water Heater

Should you replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple signs to look for when determining whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.

Age

If your water heater has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function around a decade, depending on the number of occupants in a home. Once your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s usually time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.

Rusty Water

If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is streaming out rusty, it may be an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could produce a leak, not to mention impure water. Contact an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to breakdown.

Strange Noises

Thundering or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that sediment has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your water heater 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 result in more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.

Water

If you notice water around your water heater tank, you might have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
