When to Replace Your Water Heater

Is it time to replace your water heater? Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here with some indicators to look for when choosing whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.

Age

If your water heater receives annual maintenance, you can expect it to function around ten years, depending on how many people live in the home. When your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s likely time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak happens.

Rusty Water

If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is streaming out rusty, it may be a signal that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention contaminated water. Contact an expert plumber to have them see if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.

Odd Noises

Booming or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be a signal that residue has built up on the foundation of the tank. This means your equipment will be less efficient and will have to use more gas or electricity to heat your water, causing higher water heating bills. It also means that the extra time spent heating your water could cause more damage on your tank, leading to cracks or leaks.
