Is it time to replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system.
If your water heater has standard maintenance, you can expect it to function around 10 years, depending on how many people live in the home. By the time your water heater hits 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is flowing out rusty, it might be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention polluted water. Call an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to breakdown.
Thundering or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that deposit has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will demand more gas or electricity to heat your water, creating higher water heating bills. It also means that the excess time spent heating your water could result in more damage on your tank, which could cause cracks or leaks.
If you notice water around your water heater tank, you might have a leak. Contact an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can give you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
