Signs You Need a New Water Heater

Now that the cold months are coming, you need to make sure that your water heater is up for the task. Water heaters are one of those set it and forget it appliances in your home. Often, you only give it attention once you notice that it’s not working as it should.

It can be a challenge to decide whether to get a new water heater or not. If you want to make sure if now is the right time to invest in a new water heater, watch our for these signs:

The water heater has been installed for about a decade

It is typical for older homes to have older water heaters due to the very fact that the homeowners haven’t thought of replacing them. The average lifespan of a high-quality water heater is 8 to 12 years. So, if your water heater is already showing signs of issues and you know it’s old, it’s probably best you replace it.

The water heater is making odd noises

If you’ve had your water heater long enough, you’d know when it starts making odd noises like bangs, creaks and clunking, take it as a sign that it’s calling for replacement.

The heated water is discolored

If you’re getting discolored, reddish or yellowish water, it could be a sign that the water heater is rusting from within. The temperature is out of control

How many times did your heated water almost burn you? If your water heater’s temperature control is no longer working properly, a replacement could already be due.
