How do you know if it’s time for replacement? Here are a few common signs:
No hot water or hot water quickly runs out. If you’re left cold partway through your shower or you get nothing but cold water, you may need an upgrade, a repair, or a water heater replacement.
Loud, rumbling noises from the water heater. Loud noises are a sign that your water heater could fail, so if you hear rattling, clattering, banging, or clanging noises, call the professionals.
Water leakage. Small puddles or drips near, around, or under your hot water heater? These can be caused by tiny fractures in your tank caused by pressure that will worsen over time.
Visible rust on, around, or near the tank. Rust forms with age, which means your tank’s walls are getting thinner and less able to bear your plumbing system’s pressures.
If you see signs such as these or other indicators that your water heater isn’t doing well, you should have an evaluation performed very soon to avoid other issues. Having a full inspection by our Kenmore team of experienced plumbers can make the difference between an inexpensive repair and a spendy hot water tank replacement. Ready to get started?
