1. Age – The average lifespan of a tank water heater is 8-10 years. If your water heater falls in that range, it might be more cost-effective to replace the heater instead of repairing it. As the water heater ages, it loses it’s efficiency and will become more prone to failure.
2. Leaking or Rust – We suggest you do a visual inspection of your water heater especially around the base and fitting connections. If there is water, sludge, or corrosion there is likely a leak and it may be time for a new heater.
3. Less hot water – The most common problem that affects the water heater is sediment buildup, especially when the water heater gets older. When water is heated, limescale and any other minerals form along the sides of the tank and the burner. If these minerals are not filtered out of the water heater, they form a sediment barrier that will settle on the burner and seriously affect your water heater’s performance.
4. High Energy Bill – The older the water heater the more energy it takes to keep the heater running. A water heater can account for up to 25% of your home’s energy use. Installing a new energy-efficient model will decrease energy costs
