When to Replace Your Water Heater

Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signs to look for when deciding whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system.

Age

If your water heater has standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate around 10 years, depending on the number of occupants in a home. Once your water heater hits 10 years, it’s usually time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak occurs.

Rusty Water

If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it may be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention polluted water. Contact an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.

Weird Noises

Booming or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that sediment has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heater 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 additional time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.

Water

If you notice water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
