Should you replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple signs 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 a decade, depending on the number of occupants in a home. Once your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it could be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention impure water. Ask an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Thundering or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that residue has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, resulting in higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.
If you notice water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and examine your equipment and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
