Is your water heater in need of replacing? Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some indicators to look for when deciding whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.
If your water heater has annual maintenance, you can expect it to function around a decade, depending on the number of people living in your home. Once 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 flowing out rusty, it might be an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Call an expert plumber to have them check if your water heater system is getting ready to give out.
Booming or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that deposit 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, creating 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.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you might have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and examine your equipment and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
