Your reliable water heater has quite a bit of responsibility in your home. If you are like most homeowners, you probably don’t give it much thought and overlooked sometimes. Well, until it starts functioning improperly. When your heater needs servicing or replacement, there are usually some warning signs. If you see any of these signs, call Phenom Plumbers right away!
Old and Aged Unit
As a homeowner, you must know how old your heater is. You can find its exact age by looking for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the top of the unit. It should be a letter followed by a series of random numbers. Your water heater should be replaced if it is more than 10 years old already.
Rust is not good in any part of your home’s plumbing system. If your hot water is rusty, your heater could be rusting on the inside, and it might start to leak soon. You probably need a new water heater installed right away.
Not Producing Enough Hot Water
If your shower keeps turning cold before you get done, you should get a new water heater installed sooner. The most common sign that your heater will fail is a lack of hot water production. Sediment often builds up over time inside your heaters, which separates water from heat sources and takes up some space.
Noisy Water Heater
If you hear rumbling or banging coming from your water heater, it’s a sign that the debris at the bottom has hardened. You will also run out of hot water sooner. So you should look immediately for leaks if you hear banging or rumbling sounds.Leaks
Before you replace your water heater, make sure no other leaks are coming from the parts or connections to the tank. If you find a leak, have your tank replaced right away by experienced professional plumbers, like at Phenom Plumbers.
