Water Heater Replacement

Water heaters are an essential part of any home. They provide hot water for bathing, cooking, and cleaning. However, water heaters eventually need to be replaced. The average lifespan of a water heater is 10 years. However, there are a number of factors that can shorten the lifespan of a water heater, such as:

  • Hard water
  • Frequent use
  • Poor installation
  • Damage from power outages or other environmental factors

Here are some of the signs that it may be time to replace your water heater:

  • The water heater is more than 10 years old.
  • The water heater is leaking.
  • The water heater is not producing enough hot water.
  • The water heater is making strange noises.
  • The water heater is not working properly.

If you are experiencing any of the signs listed above, it is important to have your water heater inspected by a qualified plumber. A plumber will be able to assess the condition of your water heater and recommend whether or not it needs to be replaced.

Here are some additional tips for extending the lifespan of your water heater:

  • Drain the sediment from the tank regularly.
  • Have the water heater inspected and cleaned annually by a qualified plumber.
  • Use a water softener to reduce the amount of minerals in the water.
  • Avoid using the hot water for tasks that do not require it, such as washing dishes or watering the lawn.
