Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few signals to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.
If your water heater has standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate 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 discuss replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it might be an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Ask an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Thundering or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that residue has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will demand more gas or electricity to heat your water, creating higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra 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 could have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and examine your equipment and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
