Replacing a water heater can be a daunting task, but that’s why we’re here to help provide you with easy and convenient service from start to finish. Why buy, when you can rent! If you’re suspicious of your water heater becoming run down, here’s a list of signs that its time for a replacement.
There’s A Leak
If you notice a leak underneath or by your water heater it may be time to replace it. Be sure to quickly inspect where the water source is coming from to rule out any loose pipes or fittings. If you’re unsure of the leak source and severity, be sure to contact us to help assist you with further inspection and water heater replacement.
Your Water Comes Out Rusty
If the water in your home comes out rusty or metallic when you turn on your taps, your water heater might need replacing. Be sure to test this to ensure it’s not your pipes by very carefully (caution: hot water!) draining three buckets of water from the tank. If by the third bucket, the water is still rusty or metallic, it is a sign that your water heater is rotting from the inside. If you need replacing or assistance assessing the rust source, contact us right away.
Your Unit Makes A Lot of Sound
If your water heater is not serviced regularly, it can begin collecting a buildup of sediment in the tank. Once there is a solid buildup, it can create a rumbling sound as your water heater is trying to work. This buildup can also cause leaks over time, deteriorating your water heater faster than expected. If you’re experiencing this, be sure to book a maintenance appointment with us so that we can assess the severity of the situation.
It’s 10 Years or Older
A water heater’s lifetime is around ten years depending on how often you get it serviced and the type of care it has received. If your water heater is approaching or past its ten-year mark, we suggest exploring new options. Rather than buy, consider renting and save yourself some hassle – did we mention we offer free maintenance?
Unsure about how old your water heater is? Be sure to check the install label’s date or check the serial number.
