Is it time to replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some signs to look for when choosing whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system.
If your water heater has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function around 10 years, depending on the number of people living in your home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s usually time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak happens.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is flowing out rusty, it might be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention polluted water. Call an expert plumber to have them check if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Rumbling or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that deposit has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will demand more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra time spent heating your water could produce more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.
If you discover water around your water heater tank, you might have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
