Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to invest in a new water heating system.
If your water heater receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to function around ten years, depending on the number of people living in your home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it could be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could produce a leak, not to mention polluted water. Ask an expert plumber to have them check if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Booming or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that residue 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, creating 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 see water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Contact an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
