When to Replace Your Water Heater

Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few signals to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system.

Age

If your water heater receives standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate around a decade, depending on how many people live in the home. When your water heater is 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously discuss replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.

Rusty Water

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 result in a leak, not to mention polluted water. Contact an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.

Weird Noises

Booming or knocking sounds coming from your water heater can be a sign that sediment has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your equipment will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the excess time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, which could cause cracks or leaks.

Water

If you discover water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
