Water Heater Replacement

When Should Water Heaters Be Replaced?

Knowing when to replace your water heater can help avoid unexpected breakdowns and maintain efficiency. While most water heaters last 8-12 years, certain situations require proactive replacement.

Watch out for these signs:

  • Your system is over ten years old, which is the typical lifespan of most units
  • Rust-colored water from your hot water taps suggests internal tank corrosion
  • Water leakage around the base of the heater indicates tank failure¬†
  • Insufficient hot water or the water doesn’t get as hot as it used to
  • Unusual noises, such as rumbling or banging from the water heater as sediment builds up
  • Frequent repairs signal that it is more cost-effective to replace rather than repair
  • Water temperature fluctuations without any changes to settings
  • Cloudy water with an odd smell, indicating mineral deposits affecting the water quality
  • Rising energy bills due to the inefficiency of an aging water heater
