Your Water Heater is Old

Water heaters might not last as long as you think. Gas water heaters last an average of six to eight years. Electric water heaters last an average of 10 years. If your water heater is nearing the end of its life span then it might be more cost-effective for you to replace your water heater rather than constantly try to repair problems that arise.

There’s Rust on Your Water Heater

Rust is a giveaway that you need a new water heater sooner rather than later. When rust begins to appear on the outside of the tank there is a high possibility that the inside of the tank has been affected by rust, too. Unfortunately, rust cannot be prevented and it cannot be repaired.

Your Water Heater Makes Noise

Water heaters don’t normally make a lot of noise. When they age, however, sediment builds up within the tank and settles at the bottom. Sediment can harden at the bottom of the tank. These changes within the tank can cause the tank to make strange clunking noises after years of silence. Even with routine maintenance, which includes draining the tank and flushing out the sediment, the tank can be slowly worn down to the point it needs to be replaced.

Your Water Heater Develops a Leak

Your water heater is not supposed to leak. If you notice that your water heater is leaking then you need to have a water heater replacement service check your water heater system. While some leaks can be repaired, leaks that cannot be repaired can potentially cause significant water damage if the water heater remains in use.

Hot Water Isn’t Being Produced

While the previous four reasons why you might need to replace your water heater are valid, you might not recognize that there is an issue until your water heater stops producing hot water. The lack of hot water production could be due to a broken heating element, a thermostat that needs to be adjusted, or a water heater that’s too small. Of these three reasons, the only one that requires water heater replacement is a water heater that’s too small.
