Telltale Signs You Need a New Water Heater
There are several telltale signs you need a new water heater. And with new federal regulations requiring water heaters to be more energy efficient, it’s important to know if and how you’ll be affected. Are you experiencing any of the following?
It’s more than 10 years old
This one’s relatively simple. No water heater can last forever, unfortunately. If your water heater is 10-12+ years old, it may be time for a new one. Call in a professional for help determining whether or not it’s time for a new unit. Not sure how old your water heater is? “Find the age by looking for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker on the upper portion of the water heater,” advises Angie’s List.
It has sprung a leak
Repair isn’t really an option when a water heater has sprung a leak. This happens when minerals within your water react with steel, leading to corrosion. If you notice a leak, contact us as soon as possible to learn about your replacement options.
It’s affecting the quality of your water
If rust or sediment is visible in your water supply, you may need a new water heater. This water quality issue can occur as your unit ages. According to the Home Depot, water quality problems definitely indicate that you need a new water heater.
