Why It Might Be Time to Replace Your Hot Water Heater, Henrietta, New York

Since you use your hot water heater every day, it’s crucial to be familiar with the signs it isn't operating as it should and when to replace it. The knowledgeable team from Anderson Water Systems in Rochester, NY, explains how to know when you need a new water heater.

4 Signs You Need to Replace Your Hot Water Heater

1. Your Water Is Rusty

If you have rusty water streaming from your faucets when they’re turned to “hot,” it’s time to replace your hot water heater. Your system may be corroding from the inside, which could lead to leaks if not fixed soon. If you have galvanized pipes, they may be rusting.

If your water heater is rumbling and grumbling, it may be time to repair or replace your system. These noises are likely due to sediment buildup, which eventually hardens under the pressure of constant reheating. This makes your machine less efficient and leads to accelerated deterioration.

3. Your Water Heater Is Leaking

There’s an obvious problem if water is pooling up around the tank. If you notice a crack, hole, or fracture in your hot water heater, have a professional inspect and replace it.

4. The Water Heater Is Too Old

How old is your hot water heater? If you’re not sure, check the serial number, and, if necessary, visit the manufacturer’s website for advice on deciphering the code to determine its year. In general, the second two digits represent the year it was manufactured. If your hot water heater is older than 10 years, it needs to be inspected. If it is inefficient or other signs of deterioration are spotted, you’ll need a replacement.
