Is it time to replace your water heater? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to invest in a new water heating system.
If your water heater has routine maintenance, you can expect it to function around 10 years, depending on the number of occupants in a home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously think about replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it could be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention impure water. Call an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Booming or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that sediment has built up on the bottom of the tank. This means your equipment will be less efficient and will have to use 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 cause more damage on your tank, which could cause cracks or leaks.
If you discover water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Contact an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
