Water Heater Services
Since water heaters are a pretty significant investment, it’s good to know when they’re starting to wear down so you can replace them before they cause any damage or failure.
The last thing you want is to wake up to a flood because your tank gave way.
Here are some signs it’s time to begin searching for a water heater replacement.
Your Water Heater is Old
If you’ve owned your water heater for more than ten years, it’s probably time to replace it. The average lifespan of a water heater is about 10-12 years, so if yours has made it past that milestone, consider the system to be on borrowed time.
Even if you can squeeze another year or two out of it, it’s only a matter of time before it stops working.
Weird Sounds Coming from the Tank
Don’t ignore it if you hear loud banging, popping, or gurgling noises coming from your water heater tank!
Those sounds are usually caused by sediment buildup, and that sediment can actually damage the lining, leading to leaks and potentially tough-to-repair damage.
Sediment buildup is also a sign that the heating element in your tank isn’t doing its job properly anymore, which can limit your supply of hot water.
Your Water is Rusty or Cloudy
If you get rusty or cloudy water coming from the hot water tap, it could be a sign that you have bacteria building up in the tank, or it could be the anode rod has failed.
In the worst-case scenario, rusty water means the tank lining is compromised, and replacement is the only option.
The best way to protect yourself from minor water heater issues and get the most use out of your system is by calling a professional plumber for annual maintenance like flushing out the tank and inspecting the components.
