Should You Replace Your Water Heater?

How long has it been since your water heater had a professional inspection? If you can’t recall, then it’s probably time to have a professional take a look at it. We are always happy to answer any questions you have about hot water heaters.

Here are some signs that your water heater might soon need replacement:

Sedimentary buildup. This is something that occurs over a span of many years, especially in areas with hard water. Sediment gradually accumulates at the bottom of the tank. This causes knocking or “pinging” sounds as the water inside the tank heats up. It also requires more energy to heat the water, and the buildup can even keep it from heating up past room temperature. If you’ve noticed these signs, or noticed that they are worsening, call us so that we can inspect your unit right away.

These cracks worsen over time, allowing more and more water to escape from the system. Depending on how badly damaged the system us, a replacement could be in order.

Age. If you have a conventional water heater that is about 10 or 15 years old, it might actually cost more to fix it than to replace it. This could be a good time to upgrade to a newer, more energy-efficient model. Call us to see if water heater replacement is the right choice for you.
