How do I know if my water heater needs to be replaced?

Your water heater is one of the most important appliances in your home, providing hot water for showers, washing dishes, and doing laundry. However, like any appliance, it won’t last forever. As a general rule, water heaters have a lifespan of between 8 and 12 years, after which they may begin to show signs of wear and tear.

If you are unsure whether your water heater needs to be replaced, there are several signs to look out for. For example, if you are experiencing a lack of hot water or if the water temperature is inconsistent, it could indicate that your water heater is no longer functioning properly. Other signs of a failing water heater include strange noises coming from the unit, visible signs of rust or corrosion on the tank, or leaks around the base of the unit.

If you suspect that your water heater may need to be replaced, it’s best to contact a licensed plumber. A plumber can evaluate your water heater and provide recommendations for a replacement unit that meets your needs and budget. By being proactive about replacing your water heater when necessary, you can avoid costly repairs and ensure that you always have access to hot water when you need it.
