Signs That It’s Time to Replace Your Water Heater

If you’re uncertain about replacement, here are some signs you might need the installation of a new system.

1. Not enough hot water

Your family situation may have changed since your original system was installed, and your old heater just can’t keep up with your growing demand for hot water. If that comforting hot shower is suddenly turning cold, that’s a pretty good sign you might want to consider replacement with a new, more energy-efficient heater.

2. Age

If properly maintained, most water heaters do a good job for about a decade. With luck, you might even squeeze a little more time out of it, but if you’re beyond the 10-year mark, and your utility bills are climbing, you may want to begin thinking about replacement, especially if the old heater is struggling to provide all the hot water you need.

3. Strange noises

Over time, unfortunately, sentiment tends to build up at the bottom of the tank, and hot water causes the sediment to harden. And because of that buildup of hardened sediment, you’ll probably hear rumbling and banging noises coming out of your heater.

4. Rusty water

Together, water and metal will produce corrosion. That corrosion can cause the internal components of your water heater to fail, especially the anode rod that works to take corrosive minerals out of the water. When this component fails, corrosion can collect in the water, leading to rusty water flowing out of your taps. You might replace the anode rod, but if you have an older unit, replacement of your old system will probably be the better option.

5. Puddles around your tank

Over the years, as your system cycles on and off countless times, the walls of your unit will expand and contract. Repeated expansion and contraction can lead to fractures that allow water to seep out of the tank. If you see water collecting around your unit, it’s definitely time to call in the professionals to replace your water heater.
