Water Heater Installation & Replacement
When Should You Seek Water Heater Replacement?
Homeowners must recognize the signs of water heater problems. When issues arise, identifying some signs will allow them to know when to call a plumber for water heater replacement. Consider the following potential signs.
• If the water heater is older than a decade, it is time to consider a replacement. Water heaters typically last ten to fifteen years but can break down much faster without proper maintenance.
• Homeowners who notice frequent water heater repair issues need to call a plumber. Recurring repair issues will slowly degrade the water heater’s function and eventually cause it to fail. A new water heater will function more efficiently, saving homeowners money.
• Another sign a water heater needs replacing is frequent noises. Water heaters should not be noisy during operation. If water heaters make groaning, clanging, and banging sounds, it is time to consider a replacement option.
• If homeowners notice their electricity costs are steadily rising, their old water heater could be to blame. Aging water heaters are less efficient and will cost more to operate. A new, energy-efficient model will cut down on utility costs.
