Should You Repair or Replace Your Hot Water Heater?
Water heater issues don’t just go away on their own, but if you are not a water heater expert, it can be challenging to determine whether your water heater can be fixed by simple repairs or if you should replace your hot water heater.
5 Signs You Need Water Heater Repairs or Replacement:
- Inconsistent hot water:
If your water loses heat quickly, it could be a sign of mineral buildup or that your system no longer meets the needs of your home.
- Over 10 years old:
Unfortunately, your water heater has a limited usable lifespan. Once your unit is over 10 years old, you will notice your water heater under performing and that repairs are needed more often.
- Evidence of rust:
Whether you notice rust on the actual unit, or your water comes out of the faucet discolored, it indicates corrosion.
Even small leaks can lead to major structural damage in your water heater and water damage in your property.
- Odd noises:
Hearing scratching or banging noises means there is a potential issue with an internal component. Either the component has come loose or become worn down.
Reach out to our team right away at the first sign of any of these issues. We will be able to determine if the problem can be fixed by a repair or if replacing the hot water heater is necessary.
Why Is a Hot Water Heater Taking Too Long to Heat Up?
The most common reason for a water heater to take too long to heat up is because of an excess amount of sediment buildup within the tank. Sediment build up occurs over time and can clog up the bottom of the tank where the heat transfer is located. To fix this problem and to prevent it from occurring in the future, water heaters should be flushed by a professional plumber at least once a year.
