Water Heater Replacement

You’ve probably taken advantage of the same water heater in your home for years without giving it much thought. The design of most water heaters allows them to have a long lifespan, especially if you have diligently kept up with regular repair and maintenance needs. However, at some point, your water heater will begin to fail, and you will need to get it replaced entirely.

How to Tell When You Need to Get Your Water Heater Replaced

  • The system’s age: How long have you owned the unit? Even well-maintained systems only last around eight to 10 years. Older water heater tanks can leak, causing extensive water damage. That’s why it’s usually a smart strategy for owners of aging water heaters to invest in a new system, even if they are not experiencing issues with their current equipment. If your water heater is nearing the decade mark, it’s probably best to get ahead of the curve by proactively having a new one installed.
  • Corrosion: Rust or corrosion doesn’t typically affect water heater tanks until they have reached an advanced age. If you are seeing this telltale sign, your unit is usually well past the point of repairs, and you should investigate buying a new water heater.
  • Loss of hot water volume: Have you started to run out of hot water in the middle of chores like doing the dishes? Is your morning shower shocking you by delivering cold water halfway through? A water heater that can no longer keep up with your household’s demands is probably in decline, and it is time to consider replacing it with a new model.
  • Discolored water: If you turn on the tap and see a reddish tint in your hot water, it means the inside of the tank is rusting out.
  • Rising energy bills: Hot water represents a significant chunk of the energy you use in your home. If your utility bills have been rising, despite your monthly energy usage remaining about the same, it’s a good idea to have a professional check to see whether it would be more cost-effective to replace your water heater.
  • Excessive need for repairs: If you have had to call in the pros for water heater repairs more than twice a year, that’s too often. Instead of continuing to waste money on a water heater that is limping along on its last legs, call for a new installation.
