Three Reasons to Replace Your Water Heater

Water HeaterYour water heater is an integral part of your home. If you are having issues with your heater, it may be time to replace it. Here are some signs that your system is on its last legs:

  • Water is Cold – How warm is the water coming out of the tap? If you have not made adjustments to the heater, there may be a problem with the heating element. As soon as you notice something like this happening, you should contact a professional. No one wants to be taking a cold shower.
  • Your Tank is Leaking – When you are noticing leaks around your water heater, it is most likely an issue that cannot be repaired. Water heaters tend to expand over time. This expansion can eventually lead to cracks in the tank.
  • Your Heater is Old – An average tank water heater will last for as many as 12 years. If your system is no longer working correctly and is older than that, you may need to talk to a professional about replacing it. Properly maintaining your system will help double the lifespan of your heater.
