Should you replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.
If your water heater gets annual maintenance, you can expect it to operate around a decade, depending on the number of occupants in a home. Once your water heater hits 10 years, it’s likely 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 could be an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Contact an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Rumbling or thumping 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 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 result in more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you may have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
