When to Replace Your Water Heater

Is your water heater in need of replacing? Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with a few indicators to look for when determining whether it’s time to purchase a new water heating system

Age 

If your water heater receives routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate around 10 years, depending on the number of people living in your home. Once your water heater is 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously discuss replacement, especially before a leak happens. 

Rusty Water 

If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is flowing out rusty, it could be a sign that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could create a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Ask an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to give out. 

Strange Noises 

Rumbling or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that residue has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heating system will be less efficient and will have to use more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the excess time spent heating your water could result in more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks. 

Water 

If you notice water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Call an expert plumber to come out and inspect your system and they can give you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
