Is your water heater in need of replacing? San Antonio Air Service Experts is here with a couple indicators to look for when choosing whether it’s time to buy a new water heating system.
If your water heater has routine maintenance, you can expect it to operate around a decade, depending on the number of people living in your home. By the time your water heater reaches 10 years, it’s probably time to seriously consider replacement, especially before a leak occurs.
If the water from your water heater (hot side pipes) is streaming out rusty, it might be an indicator that your water heater is rusting on the inside. This could result in a leak, not to mention impure water. Call an expert plumber to have them determine if your water heater system is getting ready to fail on you.
Booming or thumping sounds coming from your water heater can be an indicator that deposit has built up on the base of the tank. This means your water heater will be less efficient and will require more gas or electricity to heat your water, creating higher water heating bills. It also means that the additional time spent heating your water could result in more damage on your tank, which could cause cracks or leaks.
If you notice water around your water heater tank, you could have a leak. Contact an expert plumber to come out and investigate and they can provide you a quote on a new water heater if necessary.
