5 Signs Your Water Heater Might Need To Be Replaced
- Your hot water runs out faster than it used to. Water heaters lose efficiency naturally over time, and capacity can also decrease due to sediment buildup, wear and tear, and other problems. If your hot water isn’t lasting as long as it used to, this is a clear sign you should consider a replacement.
- You notice leaks around the unit. Puddles around the unit or dripping leaks need to be dealt with ASAP. Small fractures in the water heater can turn into big ones fast, causing critical failure and even a dangerous tank burst.
- You turn on the tap, and the water runs brown. We all learned in primary school that water plus metal equals rust. Eventually, the protective zinc attachment to your water heater will start to fail, and an aging water heater will begin to corrode, leaking rust into your water.
- You hear unusual and loud sounds coming from the unit. Banging, rattling, strange groaning, and moaning — this is not usually the sign of a ghost, but rather a clear indication that you need an inspector to check out your water heater.
- Your unit is old. You can generally count on your water heater lasting around 10 years. Beyond that, you can usually get a few more years out of that with regular annual maintenance and repairs. But past the 10-year mark, you should have a replacement budgeted, as you could need it at any time.
