Knowing When to Repair or Replace Your Water Heater
Although it would be nice if your water heater always operated flawlessly and lasted forever, that’s never going to happen. Most traditional water heaters reach the end of their useful life after 8 to 12 years. The performance and longevity of your water heater are dependent on several factors, including the manufacturer, installation, maintenance, usage, and the quality of your water.
At some point, your water heater will stop working as efficiently and effectively as it used to. When that time comes, you will either need to get your system repaired or replaced.
There are several warning signs that a water heater has issues that need to be addressed by a professional, including:
Rust-colored water -
If any other color than clear comes out of your faucet, that is a problem. If you notice brown'ish red colored water coming out of your tap, this could be due to a rust having been corroding from the inside of the water heater. This is due to an excessive amount of sedimentation building up within your water heater tank. Give us a call today to come and inspect your water heater.
Excessive noise -
You water heater will always make a little noise when it first turns on. But, if you are hearing loud banging, pops or cracking noises, this is a good reason to be concerned. When you water heater has too much of an accumulation of mineral deposits on the heating elements, this can cause the loud banging or it could be that a broken dip tube is what is causing the loud pops.
Leaking system -
Besides odd noises, if you notice water pooling around the bottom of your tank, chances are you have a leak somewhere in your water heater and should address this immediately. If you leave the water heater with a leak, it can also cause water damage to the surrounding areas.
Varying water temperatures -
One very obvious sign that you need water heater repair is when your water temperature fluctuates between hot and cold all the time. One minute you are enjoying a nice warm shower in the morning, the next you are dealing with the artic waters of Alaska. If you notice this problem, give our team a call.
Recognizing these warning signs that your water heater is beginning to fail is essential to your comfort and safety. The earlier you catch and correct these issues, the less likely you will find yourself without hot water when you need it most. It will also ensure that your energy bills are not higher than they have to be. Our professional plumbers can help you evaluate your system to determine if it should be repaired or if the time has come to invest in a replacement.
Have You Considered a Tankless Water Heater?
At Handy Plumbing Man, LLC, we install all makes and models of water heaters. One of the most popular options among homeowners in Redwood City is tankless units. This option, as its name implies, does not require a large supply tank. Instead, water is heated up on-demand.
There are several benefits of tankless water heaters, including:
- Increased energy efficiency
- Extended lifespan
- Endless hot water
- Lower utility bills
- Less maintenance
- Reduced space requirements
A tankless water heater may set you back more initially because it has a higher price tag. However, because these systems last up to twice as long as traditional water heaters and reduce energy usage as much as 35%, they turn out to be more cost-effective in the long run. Some homeowners might still benefit from a conventional water heater. We can help you evaluate your home and needs to make an informed decision about the best system for you.
