Signs You Need A Water Heater Replacement

Signs You Need A Water Heater Replacement'

Your water heater is a vital part of your home’s plumbing system. It provides hot water for cooking, cleaning and bathing, among other things. Like any other household appliance that is used frequently, your water heater will become less efficient over time. For a water heater replacement or repair , call Masters Heating & Cooling to schedule an appointment with one of our highly trained technicians. 

Here are some signs indicating it may be time to replace your water heater.

  1. Most tankless water heaters can last up to 15 to even 20 years, while their storage tank counterparts have lifespans of about 10 to 15 years. If your water heater is approaching or has exceeded its expected lifespan, you should consider replacing it. Even if it’s still working, an older unit will be less energy-efficient, which means higher utility costs, and it may be more prone to leaks.
  2. Rust and corrosion are signs that a water heater is nearing the end of its life. You may notice rust-colored water or rust stains around the tank or pipes. Rust and corrosion can lead to leaks and may even cause the tank to fail, so it’s best to replace the water heater before it gets to this point. 
  3. Any type of leak around your water heater is a cause for concern. Even a small leak can quickly turn into a big problem, so it’s best to have it looked at right away. If the leak is coming from the tank, it’s likely that you’ll need to replace the water heater. Masters Heating & Cooling has helped many residents of the Fort Wayne, Greenwood and Indianapolis areas with water heater replacements. 
  4. As water heaters age, sediment may build up inside storage tank water heaters. Signs that sediment buildup has occurred include:  (a) Fluctuating temperatures, going back and forth between hot and cold; (2) Water taking longer to heat up; (3) Having no hot water at all; or, (4) Hearing strange sounds like popping, banging or rumbling. If you’re noticing any of these signs, call Masters today to replace your water heater before it causes major damage from an inconvenient failure.

Replacing a water heater can be a significant investment, but it’s worth it in terms of energy savings, improved performance and peace of mind. Masters Heating & Cooling offers an Apples to Apples price match guarantee . Call our office to learn more!
