Signs it’s time to replace your water heater
Like a ticking clock, your water heater has a limited lifespan. Typically, water heaters last between 8-12 years. But age isn’t the only indicator that it’s time for a replacement. Keep an eye out for these warning signs:
Rusty water: If you notice rusty water coming from your faucets, it could be a sign that your water heater is corroding inside. This rust can eventually lead to leaks and even a complete tank failure.
Rumbling noises: As your water heater ages, sediment can build up at the bottom of the tank. Over time, this sediment hardens, causing your water heater to make rumbling or banging noises. This buildup also decreases the heater’s efficiency and can cause damage to the tank.
Leaks: If you spot puddles of water around your water heater, you may have a leaking tank. As the metal in the tank heats and cools, it can expand and create small fractures that can lead to leaks.
