Is it time to replace your water heater? Levy & Son Service Experts 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 gets annual maintenance, you can expect it to last around 10 years, depending on the number of occupants in a home. By the time your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it could be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention impure water. Call 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 sediment has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your equipment will be less efficient and will demand more gas or electricity to heat your water, resulting in higher water heating bills. It also means that the excess time spent heating your water could result in more damage on your tank, which could cause cracks or leaks.
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 provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
