Time For Water Heater Replacement in Nampa?
Signs your water heater needs to be replaced include:
- Your water heater is at least 10 years old: The average water heater lasts anywhere from eight to 10 years depending on how well-maintained it’s been. Talk with your plumber first to see whether it can be kept running for even longer through a maintenance plan or simple repairs.
- The inlet valve is starting to rust: Even though your water heater is designed to resist rusting, not even the best unit can resist the aging process. Once corrosion starts to take hold, it will continue to spread across the unit and if left unaddressed, will lead to leaks
- It’s starting to make weird or new noises: Machines can make noises when they run, but if you start to notice louder or strange noises coming from your water heater it likely means that there’s an issue. Sometimes this is caused by a sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, which can and should be cleared out once per year.
- Water pooling around your water heater: Whether you notice an active leak or just notice that there’s a lot of water pooling around your unit, it’s time to call a plumber to fix the problem. The longer you wait to fix this, the more likely it becomes that the leaking water will cause additional property damage.
- There’s no hot water in coming out of your faucets or shower: There are several reasons why your water heater could stop heating the water; the thermostat may need to be readjusted; it could be too small for your home; there could be a broken heating element.
