Should you 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 operate around ten years, depending on the number of occupants in a home. When 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 an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention impure water. Contact an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to breakdown.
Rumbling or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that residue has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will have to use more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the additional time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.
If you discover water around your water heater tank, you may have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and examine your equipment and they can give you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
