How can you tell if your water heater has a problem?

A cold shower is an obvious sign that your water heater is having issues, but there are several other signs to watch out for:

  • Water that is too hot or not hot enough

  • Low hot water pressure

  • Water that takes too long to reheat

  • Rust-colored, murky, or sandy water

  • A leaky or faulty T & P valve

  • Weird sounds coming from your water heater such as whining, gurgling, rumbling, or popping

  • Water that has a metallic smell or taste

  • Water leaks, rust, or corrosion around the tank’s base or fittings 

  • A pilot light that won’t light or stay lit

Is it time to replace your water heater?

The average water heater has a life expectancy of 8-12 years. If your water heater has made it 10 years, we recommend replacing it before you experience catastrophic failure. The older your water heater gets, the less efficiently it runs, increasing your energy costs and the cost for repairs.  Regular maintenance can help extend the life of your water heater but eventually they all fail.
