Water heaters are a year-round necessity! Unlike air conditioning and heating systems, they’re always needed to maintain a preferable level of comfort in any household. That’s why it’s important to keep an eye on the condition of your water heater to stay ahead of breakdowns. If your water heater is 10 years old or older, it may be smart to replace it now before it fails. If you’re unsure of your water heater’s age, then watching out for signs of any issues can give you an advanced warning and ample time to respond to any setbacks. Here are some things to look out for:
- Insufficient Hot Water: If you notice your water no longer getting hot enough, it’s likely caused by mineral deposits at the bottom of your tank that keep the heat from reaching the water. This can cause your water heater to work extra hard.
- Noisy Water Heater: If you’re hearing your water heater more than usual, it can also be an indication of mineral deposit buildup inside of the tank. While the noise won’t harm your system, the mineral buildup can cause the tank to overheat, which leads to metal fatigue and can result in leaks.
- Leaking Water Heater: A leaking tank is a red flag of an indication that your tank is in need of immediate replacement. If you’re noticing puddles of water under your water heater’s tank, get on the phone and call us for help right away!
