Water Heater Maintenance – Your water heater is an indispensable part of your home, silently working in the background to ensure a steady hot water supply for your showers, laundry, and dishwashing needs. At Your Service Plumbing understands the importance of a well-maintained water heater and the potential inconvenience when it begins to fail.
Water Heater Maintenance
Regular maintenance of your water heater is not just about keeping it functional. It’s about prolonging its lifespan, maintaining energy efficiency, and preventing unexpected malfunctions that could lead to costly repairs or water damage. It’s easy to overlook this humble appliance, but a faulty water heater can quickly disrupt your daily routine.
Even with excellent maintenance, water heaters, like all appliances, will eventually need to be replaced. Knowing when to do so is crucial to avoid any inconvenient or costly surprises.
Here are five signs that may indicate it’s time for a new water heater:
Age: The average lifespan of a water heater is around 10-15 years. If your unit is nearing this age range or has surpassed it, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Rusty Water: If your hot water has a rusty color, it could mean your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could lead to leaks in the near future.
Noise: As water heaters age, sediment builds up on the bottom of the tank. This sediment can cause your water heater to rumble or pop when heating, a clear sign of impending failure.
Frequent Repairs: If you frequently call for repairs, replacing the unit might be more cost-effective. A new water heater will be more efficient and reliable.
Lack of Hot Water: If your showers turn lukewarm or cold too quickly, your water heater may not be functioning properly. This could be due to a failing heating element or a tank that’s too small for your needs.
