When Should I Consider Water Heater Replacement?

water heater failure can leave you without hot water or even worse, start leaking. To avoid such inconvenience and discomfort, it is best to replace your water heater when it becomes too old or starts showing signs of a problem. These can include:

  • Inefficient operation – In a tank-based water heater, sediment can accumulate and harden, leading to reduced capacity and inefficient operation. While draining the sediment periodically can help, eventually the water heater will require replacement.
  • High utility costs – Older water heaters on the verge of failure can cause significantly higher gas or electricity usage.
  • Poor performance – If your water heater cannot provide sufficient hot water at the proper temperature, there may be excessive sediment accumulation, burner problems, or trouble with the thermostat, requiring repair or replacement.
  • Strange noises – Sediment accumulation or other problems can cause abnormal noises like rumbling or banging. Have the water heater inspected if you hear strange sounds.
  • Rusty water – Reddish or brown water can be a sign of excessive corrosion in the water heater tank, which can lead to leaks.

If you notice any of these problems, contact our team at Heil Plumbing for an inspection today. We offer water heater repairs, replacements, and 24/7 emergency services throughout the Jessup area.
