When to Replace Your Water Heater

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

Age

If your water heater receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate around ten years, depending on the number of people living in your home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously consider 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 polluted water. Call an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to breakdown.

Odd Noises

Thundering or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that residue has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your water heater will be less efficient and will have to use 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 cause more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.

Water

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