Wondering When to Get a New Water Heater? Look For These 4 Signs
Hot water heaters put up with a lot of abuse throughout their years of operation. Hot water heaters last for years, they’re designed to have a long service life, actually. If you think about how many times a day, every day, you make use of hot water in your home, you’ll realize that your water heater works incredibly hard 24/7 and most homeowners do not think about it until it’s time for a hot water heater replacement.
Even if you take perfect care of your water heater needs, though, with consistent regular maintenance and prompt repairs, you know that eventually you will have to replace your current water heater with a new unit, whether that’s with an electric water heater, gas water heater, or even a tankless water heater. When it comes time to replace your old water heater, hiring a professional plumber to perform the water heater installation is always recommended, and some offer a warranty on their water heater installation.
The following are a few signs that you should look for in your water heater, indicating that maybe it’s time to have a professional replace it for you.
