Signs you need water heater replacement

The warning signs of a breakdown happen subtly overtime. Just in case you’re not certain about replacement, here are a few signs indicating you might need installation of a new system.

1) Age
With proper maintenance, an electric water heater can provide good service for about 10 to 15 years. But, how long does a gas water heater last? While a gas water heater can operate quicker than an electric heater, most only last between 8 and 12 years.

Regardless of the type of water heater you own, if its service life exceeds the 10-year mark, then you may want to begin thinking about replacement.

2) Not enough hot water
That brings us to a second indicator that your gas water heater needs to be replaced: cold water. While an older system might take slightly longer to heat your water, it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to heat up or stay warm for only a few mintues before turning cold.

It’s possible that old tank is just not able to keep up with the growing demand for hot water. If you’ve got family members trying to get ready for school or work in the morning, then you know how important it is to have hot water available. When your hot shower water turns cold after operating for only a few minutes, then it’s probably time time to replace your old hot water heater.

3) Strange noises
Over time, unfortunately, sediment can build up in the bottom of the tank, and hot water causes that sediment to harden. As a result of that combination of hardened sediment and hot water, you’ll probably hear rumbling and banging noises coming out of your heater.

4) Rusty water in yours water lines
When water and metal come together, they produce corrosion. That corrosion can cause internal components to fail, especially the anode rod. When this component fails, the water in the tank will probably pick up the corrosion, leading to rusty water flowing out of your taps. Yes, you can replace the anode rod, but if you have an older unit, replacement 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 expand and contract, potentially leading to fractures that allow water to seep out of the tank. If water is collecting around your unit, it’s definitely time to call in the professionals from Wilbur’s for water heater repairs.

When these water heater leaks become happen frequently, then it’s time to consider
