3 Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Water Heater
Don’t be like most homeowners who have no idea when their water heater is about to kick the bucket. A little bit of knowledge goes a long way – it can save you the headache of going days without hot water or paying out of pocket for costly repairs. Here are three indicators that your water heater is on the fritz.
1. Old Age: Water heaters aren’t made to last forever. Most models only have an 8-12 year lifespan so if yours is approaching this range, it might be time to upgrade. Just think about how much more energy-efficient they’ve made products in the last couple of years – you’ll see a drastic increase in savings each year.
2. Rust: Have rusty water coming out of your faucets? While this doesn’t necessarily mean that your water heater is on its way out (rusty water can be a result of rusty pipes), it’s worth testing further. Drain about three buckets of water from the tank and if it’s still rusty after the third, it’s likely that the inside of the tank has rusted.
3. Leaks: Notice water around the base of your water heater? Wipe it dry with a towel and come back to check on it the following day. If there’s water on the floor again it means your tank is leaking and it should be replaced right away.
