How do you know if it’s time for a water heater replacement? Here are some signs:
Lack of or insufficient hot water. If you’re not getting enough hot water for your shower or the water isn’t heating up at all, a repair, replacement, or a larger heater may be in your future.
Loud, rattling noises from the heater. Loud noises coming from your water heater are a sign of potential failure. If you’re hearing rumbling, banging, clanging, or clanging noises, call the professionals.
Water leaking. Do you see drips or puddles under, near, or around your water heater? Often caused by pressure fractures, they will often worsen over time and cause more damage.
Rust on or around the tank. Rust forms with age, so external rust is a sign of corrosion inside your tank as well, making it thinner and less able to bear your plumbing system’s pressures.
These or other signs can indicate that your hot water heater is having issues. For this reason, you should have it checked as quickly as possible to avoid more expensive problems down the road. An inspection by one of our Newfane plumbers can make the difference between a fast, cheap repair and an expensive, time-consuming water heater replacement.
