Should you replace your water heater? Freschi Service Experts is here with some signals to look for when choosing whether it’s time to invest in a new water heating system.
If your water heater gets standard maintenance, you can expect it to operate around a decade, depending on the number of people living in your home. Once your water heater hits 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak causes any damage.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is coming out rusty, it could be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention impure water. Call an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to give out.
Booming or banging sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that sediment has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heater will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, resulting in higher water heating bills. It also means that the additional time spent heating your water could result in more damage on your tank, possibly generating cracks or leaks.
If you see water around your water heater tank, you might have a leak. Ask an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can supply you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
