Is your water heater in need of replacing? 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 ten years, depending on how many people live in the home. By the time your water heater hits 10 years, it’s usually time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is streaming out rusty, it could be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could produce a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Ask an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to breakdown.
Rumbling or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that residue has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your water heater will be less efficient and will have to use 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, 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 provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
