Is It Time for a New Water Heater? 4 Signs That Say Yes, Canyon Lake, Texas

Identifying the need for water heater replacement can be difficult without professional help. Fortunately, Don’s Plumbing of Canyon Lake, TX, has provided a plethora of installation and repair services for over 30 years. With his high-quality tools and trusted inspection techniques, this professional knows exactly when a water heater needs replacing.

Here, they offer four telltale signs for homeowners to look out for:

  • Age Of Your Water Heater: One of the first things to consider is the age of your water heater. Most units have a lifespan of 8-12 years. If yours is creeping into the double digits, you may want to consider a replacement rather than the nuisance of multiple repairs.
  • water heaterIncrease In Energy Bill: When a water heater fails to function properly, it reveals itself through an unexpected increase in your utility bill. This is a common occurrence among older appliances and should be inspected by a plumber as soon as possible.
  • Lack Of Hot Water: When you turn on the faucet or start running the shower, you expect there to be a steady stream of hot water. However, as a water heater reaches the end of its lifespan, minerals in the tank start to build up. This sediment prevents the water heater from functioning properly and could lower the amount of hot water it produces—resulting in the need for a new appliance.
  • Leaks & Rust: Puddles of water around the base of your water heater or rust on the metal are urgent indicators of a replacement-worthy problem. Shut off the water heater once this deterioration is detected and have a plumber perform an inspection to determine the next best step.
