Do you need New Hot Water Heater?
Get rid of your old water heater unit and replace it with a brand new hot water heater from your local HVAC professionals.
Water heaters are no different than any other appliance in your home, as time goes on your water heater is bound to break down and will need to be replaced. It’s always better to replace your water heater before it’s completely broken and rendered useless because that may lead to larger problems, such as large leaks and water damage to your home. In this case, how are you supposed to know when you’re due for a replacement?
Here are a few clues that a new hot water heater may be needed in your home:
The age of your old water heater
With age your water heater will have a higher chance of breaking down. The general rule of thumb is that a tank water heater will on average last 10 to 12 years.
Not enough hot water
One of the most common, yet most annoying problems regarding water heaters is running out of hot water. If you’re constantly running out of hot water and find yourself taking involuntary cold showers on a regular basis, then you may need to consider upgrading to a new hot water heater with a larger tank. If your tank is of an adequate size, then the problem may be stemming from a leak in the water line or an excess amount of sediment in your water tank.
Rust and corrosion
You should check your water heater for rust and corrosion, especially if it’s an older tank. The majority of hot water heaters are made out of steel, which means that they will eventually develop rust. If you spot any rust or corrosion by the tank’s temperature and pressure relief valve or on the water inlet and outlet connections, that’s a clear sign that your household is in need of a new hot water heater.
Another sign of a rusting water heater is if you see any rust in the hot water coming out from your tap. If your tank has started to rust or corrode, there is unfortunately no way to repair the tank and get rid of the rust. A rusted and corroded water heater will at some point begin to leak, if it hasn’t started to already then it’s only a matter of time. The water damage done to your home as a result of a leaking water heater can cost thousands of dollars to repair.
To avoid such unnecessary damages, expenses, and the headaches they can cause, your best option would be to have a brand new hot water heater installed and be free of all your old problems.
Your water heater makes strange or unusual noises
Every water heater will build up sediment over time. The sediment in your tank can cause popping or rumbling sounds while the water heater is operating. If you hear high pitched noises coming from your water heater, that could indicate excessive pressure in the tank. If this is the case, you should check with your water heater provider to compare the expected water pressure and the pressure within your own tank. This situation can be simply solved by having a professional HVAC technician assess the issue in your home.
