Is it time to replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.
If your water heater receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to last around a decade, depending on the number of occupants in a home. When your water heater hits 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously discuss replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it may be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention impure water. Contact an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Rumbling or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that residue has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your equipment will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you may have a leak. Contact an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
