Nothing lasts forever, and this seems to be especially true when it comes to appliances in your home. Eventually, there comes a time when your water heater will stop operating efficiently and will need to be replaced. On average a water heater lasts somewhere between 8 to 10 years. This is just an average amount of time, meaning your water heater may need to be replaced sooner but also has the potential to outlive this expectancy.
Listed below are some of the most common signs your water heater is about to fail and will need to be replaced:
Rust: Steel is very strong, however it has a vulnerability to rust. When corrosion begins affecting your home’s steel surfaces it will spread, eating through the surface of the steel. Rust is a serious problem that will need immediate attention in order to stop it from spreading and keep it from contaminating your home’s water supply.
Noisy: Your water heater should not be noisy, within reason. If you notice new or strange rumbling noises that continue getting louder this may be a sign of sediment build up within your heater. This is a problem because not only will it make your water heater less efficient, it will also age the heater at a more rapid pace. At Red Lion Plumbing we can determine if you need to flush your heater or replace it with an inspection.
Water Leak: As your water heater ages, there is an increased chance that you will begin to see water on the floor surrounding the tank. Whenever you see water, it typically means you have a leak. Depending on the location of the water heater, a leak could result in significant damage.
