Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair
On average, a water heater can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. However, once it reaches those later years, it can start to create issues in your home. Outside of running out of hot water completely, there are other indicators that a repair issue may be on the horizon.
Symptoms homeowners should look for include:
- Fluctuating water temperatures: Your water heater should be able to produce consistent water temperatures on demand. If your unit is running out of hot water too quickly or the water is lukewarm at best, there’s a problem.
- Low water pressure: A common problem for water heaters is scale buildup. Essentially a clog, scale can decrease water pressure whenever you use hot water in your home.
- Water leaks: Deterioration is a common issue for water heaters. Over time, the metal can weaken, eventually leading to a leak. Look out for leaks around fittings or under the tank.
- Water quality issues: As the water heater deteriorates, impurities can form inside the unit. If your water is rust-colored or cloudy, this is a cause for concern. Not only is it an indication your unit needs repairs, but it can also be harmful to your skin.
If your water heater is beyond repair or it simply can’t keep up with your family needs, opting for a water heater replacement is a great option too!
With a new unit in place, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of perks like:
- Lower energy costs -
Upgrading to a new hot water heater also improves your energy efficiency. A water heater can account to around 18 -25% of your average energy bill. Newer new hot water heaters are created to save you money by being much more energy efficient.
- Increased hot water capacity -
By replacing your old water heater, not only are you increasing the hot water recovery rate of your new unit, but you're also increasing how much more hot water you'll receive. Newer hot water heaters are much more efficient and use less energy while also creating more hot water.
- Longer appliance lifespan -
Hot water heaters are only meant to last 8 to 10 years. After the 10 year mark, older water heaters are going to inevitably break down much more frequently. Repair after repair can add up and you may end up spending the as much as you would if you just replaced the unit. By replacing the unit, you've effectively increased the lifespan of your appliance.
