When Should I Change My Water Heater?
This depends on the type of water heater and how well you take care of the system, but in general, we recommend thinking about replacing your water heater after 6 or 7 years. Have it inspected around this time and see what your specialist has to say. It is not unheard of for them to last 15 to 20 years, but it is always better to be safe than sorry when your heater gives out when you need it most.
Likewise, if you hear loud noises, such as banging, whizzing, popping, or hissing, coming from your water heater, that is a sign you need an inspection.
Leaking is another sign that you might need a new unit. Hot water heaters are the most expensive component of your plumbing system, and repairs are often as expensive as new units.
Also, if you have a gas water heater and smell gas coming from your water heater, call a licensed professional right away as a gas leak could pose a potential danger to your family and home.
Water Heater Maintenance
Proper maintenance for your water heater can help it last longer and keep your utility bills lower. Flushing your water heater every 6 to 12 months can help keep your system running better for longer.
If you experience any of the issues listed about or if your hot water heater is around 6 years older or older, contact us at Reliable Drain today, and we can inspect your system.
