When to Replace Your Water Heater

Should you replace your water heater? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with some indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system

Age 

If your water heater has standard maintenance, you can expect it to function around a decade, depending on the number of occupants in a home. By the time your water heater is 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage. 

Rusty Water 

If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it might be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could cause a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Ask an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to give out. 

Weird Noises 

Booming or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that residue has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will demand 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, which could cause cracks or leaks. 

Water 

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