When Should You Replace Your Water Heater?

Even the most robust and well-built water heater isn’t going to live forever. The constant strain of heating water and dealing with changing temperatures as well as corrosion all eventually puts a lot of age into the metal that composes your water heater tank.

Eventually, this leads to your tank springing a leak, and a leaking tank can cause everything from injuries to damage to your home’s structure and foundation.

Therefore, you want to replace your water heater as soon as you start to see signs of wear and tear.

It may be time to replace your water heater if any of the following are true:

  • Your water heater is more than eight years old - As your water heater gets up there in age, you may be able to get a few more years out of it with constant repairs. But, once it's past the 10 year mark, you may want to look into replacing that old water heater. If you aren't sure of the age of your water heater, check the serial number on top of the unit. If you are un able to find a date, look up the serial number online. Contact our League City water heater installation for all your water heater replacement needs.
  • Your water heater seems to run constantly - If you notice that your hot water heater is running constantly it could be due to a sediment build up on one of the two heating elements found inside of you water heater. If the heating element gets covered in sediment, your water heater is going to heat up much less hot water than normal and have to constantly run in order to meet the demand for hot water. With our League City water heater installation technicians, we can help you identify if you need to replace your unit.
  • Making Strange Noises- Water heaters will always make some noise as it is heating up your water. But, if you are noticing loud pops or rumbling coming from your unit, it could be that your water heater is close to failure. As the water heater gets older these noises will become more noticeable. It's usually due to sediment or mineral formation hardening inside of the water tank. As it gets thicker, the water heater has to consume more energy in order to provide sufficient hot water.
  • Your energy bills are extremely high for no apparent reason - As water heaters age and reach the end of their lifespan, they can become less efficient in heating water. When the water heater gets less efficient that means it typically has to work twice as hard in order to create enough hot water for you and your household. Your energy bill can increase dramatically from this problem and it may be time to replace your water heater.

What Are Signs You Need Water Heater Repair?

At Able Plumbing, we have provided you 3 signs to look for in order to avoid those cold showers:

  1. Irregular Water Temperature - Have you noticed your water temperature going from hot to lukewarm or even cold? This is a sign that something may be wrong with you water heater. The most common reason a water heater may lose heat is a due to an accumulation of mineral deposits on the heating elements located within your hot water heater's tank.

  2. Discolored Water - Water that comes out of any faucet should only ever be clear. If your water is coming out a red'ish brown color this could be an indication that your water tank has rust or it's the sedimentation that has accumulated on the heating elements of the hot water heater. Give us a call today to help you clean out your water tank.
  3. Strange Noises Coming From The Tank - If you notice that your hot water heater is making odd noises such as loud bangs or pops, this could be due to the accumulation of mineral desposits or sedimentation build up or it could be that your dip tube is broken and it's causing cold water and hot water to mix, which would lead to the loud pops you are hearing.

Troubleshooting No Hot Water

One of the most common issues with a hot water heater is not having hot water! This is something that you may be able to troubleshoot, but remember: safety comes first!

Always use caution when working with a hot water heater system. Water heaters are dangerous if not handled properly. If you have a gas heater, there is a possibility that it may explode. Electric water heaters involve high voltages, and both gas and electric heaters involve incredibly hot water.

How to troubleshoot no hot water:

  • If you have a gas water heater, it may be caused by the pilot light being out. Check the water heater to see if it is out. If it is, you may reignite it. Then, your water should get hot again. If it keeps going out, call Able Plumbing Inc to avoid any issues or accidents.

  • Do you have an eclectic water heater? It is possible that your fuse blew or the switch to the water heater got switched to the “off” position. Check to see if there is power going to your water heater. If not, check your circuit breaker to see if it was tripped. If so, switch it on. Then, locate the upper thermostat for your water heater. Press the reset button. Within 15 minutes, your hot water should be functioning again. If not, get in touch with a professional technician as soon as possible!

Have other issues with your hot water heater? You probably need help from properly trained technicians at Able Plumbing Inc.
