How do you know when it's time to replace your water heater?

The average life of a tank type water heater is approximately 8-11 years. You know it's time to replace your water heater when:

  • You hear a "popping" noise
  • You see a leak near the water heater
  • You run out of hot water sooner than you remember
  • Your hot water has a rusty, dirty appearance

We can replace your water heater quickly; however replacing it before it leaks, avoiding an emergency situation in the late evening hours is wise. 

The takeaway: Schedule your water heater replacement before your water heater bursts.  You'll be glad you did!

Sediment can build up in your water heater over time. It may be time to call your plumbing professional for water heater repairs. 

It may be time for a water heater replacement when:  

  • Hot water is rusty colored or dirty in appearance
  • You hear a 'popcorn-like' noise.This is a sign of advanced deterioration of the water heater and that the integrity of the glass lining has been breached
  • You notice that you run out of hot water sooner than in the recent past 
  • You see water on the floor near the base of the unit. This may also be an indication that the water heater is beginning to leak. (Leaks do not seal themselves, they only get worse)

This often means that the water heater is indeed nearing the end of its useful life, that spending money on costly repairs may no longer make sense and your water heater replacement is indicated.

Here are some maintenance tips

  • Keep the area around your water heater clean and free of dirt, boxes and flammable substances.
  • It is important to keep the water heater accessible for proper operation and easy maintenance allowing 
    for water heater repairs as needed.
  • Check your water heater occasionally to ensure that the temperature dial has not been accidentally lowered or raised.
  • Be sure you don't store sources of flammable vapors in the same area as your water heater (this includes gasoline, heating oils, lighter fluids, propanes, etc.).
  • Keep the top of the water heater clean. The horizontal surface is a collecting place for dust and debris.
  • If you notice water dripping on the water heater from any piping, Contact Us to have the leak repaired.
