When is it Time to Replace Our Home Water Heater?

If you were asked what home appliances get the most use, what would your answer be? Your refrigerator, perhaps? Or maybe your stove? Most of us would never think about our water heater, even though we use it throughout the day, time and time again. Every time you take a hot shower, wash a load of laundry on a warm cycle, or run the dishwasher, your water heater is doing a lot of work.

In fact, your water heater can amount to anywhere from 14-25% of the total energy used by appliances throughout your home, so it makes good sense to ensure that your water heater is working at peak efficiency. The average lifespan of a water heater is around 10 years with normal use, but other factors can reduce or extend that time, and a water heater that's going out may be adding a lot to your energy bill.

Trying to figure out if it's time for water heater replacement? Rumblings and other odd noises coming from the water heater are signs your water heater may be on its last legs, as is water leakage from around the water heater itself. You may also notice rusty water coming from faucets throughout your home, or sediment build up in the water heater itself that may prevent you from using the drain valve. In any of these cases, the best option is to call a technician who is trained in water heater service who can help you determine the extent of the problem, and suggest whether it's time for water heater replacement.

While many calls come in because water heaters are no longer producing water that is as hot as desired, this isn't always a problem that requires water heater replacement.
