Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Water Heater

A broken water heater can be a major inconvenience, so it makes sense to pay attention to the warning signs and replace your broken water heater before it stops working all together. At The Water Specialist, our mission is to make sure all of the water systems in your home are operating the way they should. So, if a faulty water heater is causing you stress or discomfort, we’re here to help you make the right upgrade.

Here are five things to watch for as you decide whether or not now is the right time to replace your water heater:

  1. You’ve had the same water heater for 10 years or more. Water heaters last about ten years, so if your water heater is getting up there in age, you should at least begin thinking about a replacement, or least of all, an inspection. If you’re unsure how old your water heater may be, you can figure this out by checking the serial number.
  2. You notice strange noises. Sediment will build up in the bottom of your water tank over time. Or sometimes, a heating element can become loose. These issues could cause the noises you hear coming from your water heater.
  3. There is rust coming out of the tap. Possibly, this could be a sign that it’s time for a change. Pay attention to the color of your water when you first turn on your hot water faucet. If you notice hints of orangish red, you’ll want to call a professional.
  4. Your hot water doesn’t last very long. Water heaters will degrade in quality over time. Also, the sediment build up will eventually decrease the water holding capacity.
  5. There is puddling around your water heater. This is a sign of leaks in your unit. If you notice any such leaks, you need to take immediate action.
