Signs You Need a New Water Heater
As a responsible Columbia homeowner, you probably notice when things take a turn for the worst. While it’s easier to spot some failures than others, there are some pretty clear signs that your water heater is in need of replacement.
- Your water heater is old. Time flies when you’re having fun, but after about 10 years of reliable hot water, it’s time to start considering the replacement of your water heater. Many homeowners are tempted to wait until things start failing, but failed water heaters can cause damage to other parts of your home. For example, if your water heater starts to leak, it could ruin your floors if you don’t catch the leak right away. This is why it’s best to start considering replacement when your water heater is up there in age.
- Your water heater is leaking. As mentioned above, a leaking water heater is a telltale sign you need a replacement. Check to make sure the fittings and connections to your water heater are not the ones leaking. If they seem dry and good, then your water heater is the culprit and will need to be replaced.
- Your hot water is rusty. Rusty water could mean that your water heater is rusting from the inside out – which is not good. To make sure the issue is your water heater and not your pipes, drain your water heater into a five-gallon bucket. If you’re a few buckets in and your water is still rusty, then you know your water heater is the issue and not your pipes.
