Old water Heater can be dangerous causing fire in the home

Old water heater can cause fire in the home

There have been many cases reported where faulty and old heater started a fire in the house. Number of homes burned down after an old water heater sparked a fire and exploded and others had substantial damages. As witnesses say some noticed a smaller fire as the pilot light of the water heater was being lit others didn’t notice anything until the fire flamed out. Firefighters were called on scenes and confirmed that the cause of the fire was due to the faulty and old water heater.

“Firefighters said a water heater exploded, sparking a fire at the back of the home” reported Fox 29 News.

Some homeowners were not very lucky as the fire consumed their homes and for some the fire was deadly. “A deadly house fire early this morning claimed the lives of four children.” reported News 5 WKRG.

If you are a homeowner or renting a home be sure to check your water heater’s age and have a technician inspect the unit for safety. You can determine your old water heater age by reading the serial number from the rating plate. Click here to learn how to read your water heater’s age. If you determine that water heater is over 10 years old then you should consider replacing it immediately since the lifespan of a water heater is on average 10 years. Once your old water heater hits the lifespan mark it can start causing problems and for some homes even a fire. Moreover most home insurances these days have a new clause regarding old water heater, which require for the unit to be changed every 10 years otherwise any damages caused by the water heater pass its 10 years lifespan will not be covered.

If purchasing a new hot water heater is not in the budget you can easily rent it and stay worry free. Many homeowners in Ontario already rent hot water heaters so when an old water heater passes its lifespan you can simply upgrade to new rental unit and be covered for all parts and labour. If your current water heater supplier refuses to upgrade your old water heater for some reason don’t worry as you can always switch to another provider.
