As the old saying goes, nothing lasts forever.
This is one thing you don’t want to procrastinate on. A water heater tank failure leaves your home without hot water and potentially leaves you with a big cleanup bill on top of having to get a new water heater in a hurry. If you start planning your upgrade now, you’ll be able to choose the one you know is right for your home.
The average lifespan of a storage-type water heater is between 10 and 15 years. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it’s time to replace it. If you don’t know how old your water heater is, this video shows how you can find out.
If your water heater makes strange noises, such as banging or rumbling, when the water in your tank is being heated up, it’s due to accumulated sediment that has hardened and settled at the bottom of your tank. Your water heater might be beyond repair and must be replaced.
Leaks in your water heater aren’t always immediately apparent. However, even little ones are big enough to leave a little puddle or moist floor around your water heater over time. Contact us if there are any wet or damp areas on the floor around your water heater. We’ll come over and assess the situation.
The average home uses about 20% of its energy on water heating. That implies it may be the source if you notice an inexplicable and abrupt rise in your energy expenses. Replacing your water heater will begin returning on your investment right away in the form of lower energy costs. If you upgrade to a tankless water heater, you can cut your water heating energy costs by one-third, or more!
Is there rusty water coming from your faucet? It’s possible that rust is building up inside the water heater tank. This might be the indication of an imminent leak or a water heater failure. Contact us to get started on replacement.
