For most, summer is a busy season; The average homeowner will do more laundry, dishwater loads, and take more frequent showers, etc. All this usage can put a major strain on older hot water heaters, which can cause them to struggle to keep up with the demand. While it’s not uncommon for your residential HVAC team to perform minor repairs, it is important to look out for the signs of when it’s time for a new hot water heater. Thankfully, Guaranteed Service has composed a short list of signs to be aware of when your hot water heater is ready for replacing!

  1. Lack of hot water - When your showers abruptly run out of hot water and you cannot shower comfortably while the dishwasher or washing machine is running, this is the first sign that your hot water is nearing retirement.
  1. Tank leaks - If you have persistent hot water heater leaking issues, it could eventually lead to your tank giving out entirely and causing water damage to your home.
  1. Rusty water - Has your running water ever turned a reddish/brown hue? This could mean your tank is building up with debris, sediment, or rust. While our experienced plumbers can flush and drain it, that may just be a temporary solution. Rusty water is definitely a sign that your tank will need to be replaced soon.
  1. Loud noises - Loud bangs, screeches, and other undesirable noises from your water heater are audible signs that your water heater is close to the end of its life.
  1. Your tank is over 10 years old - The average lifespan of a water heater is about 10 years, and equipment lasting longer than that is more susceptible to unwanted (and always horribly timed) issues and costly repairs. In these cases, it’s recommended to have a new water heater installed before the next season begins!
