Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signals to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new water heating system.
If your water heater receives standard maintenance, you can expect it to function around 10 years, depending on how many people live in the home. When your water heater hits 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously discuss replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is flowing out rusty, it may be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention polluted water. Ask an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Rumbling or thumping 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, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the additional time spent heating your water could produce more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.
If you notice water around your water heater tank, you could 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.
