Signs Your Water Heater May Have A Problem

There are multiple factors to consider when determining if there is an issue with your home’s water heater. One thing to consider is age. Older models of water heaters were not made as efficiently as the modern appliances we see on the market today. This means, if your water heater is over 10 years of age, it may not be operating efficiently- even if you have not noticed any issues. This is because, while your water may still be heating to temperature, it may be wasting a great deal of energy in order to do so.


Additionally, if you hear strange noises, such as creaking and moaning coming from your water heater’s tank this can be a sign that you have an issue. Strange and unpleasant smells in the water, rust, or discoloration are other signs you may have an issue.


Just like your other household appliances, water heaters will require maintenance in order to continue operating safely and efficiently. Another perk of keeping up with regular water heater maintenance in your home is that it will help to extend the lifespan of your appliance. This will make it easier to catch problems quickly, before they become too expensive or problematic to repair.


The maintenance that is necessary for your home’s water heater will depend on several factors. These factors include the location of your appliance, the design of the unit, quality of installation, water purity, and manufacturer recommendations.
