Is it time to replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system.
If your water heater receives standard maintenance, you can expect it to last around ten years, depending on the number of people living in your home. When your water heater hits 10 years, it’s usually time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak happens.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is streaming out rusty, it could be a sign 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 determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Thundering or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that sediment has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your water heating system 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 result in more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you may have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
