There may not be a more important appliance in your home than your water heater. Thanks to automatic water heaters, we now enjoy a reliable, plentiful, and readily-available supply of hot water that we can use for everything from cooking to cleaning to bathing and more. Because modern water heaters are automatic and completely tied into our home’s plumbing system, we can enjoy hot water at virtually every faucet or fixture in our bathrooms, kitchen, and even utility spaces. So when something goes wrong with your water heater, it’s easy to see how the impact to your home can be monumental.

Water Heater Replacements
It often surprises people to learn that water heaters actually have one of the shortest expected lifespans of any appliance in your home. Even when well-kept and maintained, the average water heater will generally only last around eight to ten years before needing to be replaced. Containing water and the stress of constantly changing temperatures simply places too much strain on the materials, and as a result your water heater will eventually start to experience problems that necessitate its replacement.
You may need a new water heater if you notice any of the following with your system:
- Lack of hot water
- Limited hot water capacity (running out of hot water quickly)
- Excessively high energy bills
- Strange smells or colors coming from your water
- Standing or dripping water around your water heater tank
We will always recommend an immediate water heater replacement if your water heater’s tank is showing signs of leaking. A leaking tank is a potential disaster waiting to happen—the leaking water can cause mold and mildew growth, ruin drywall, and even damage your home’s very structure and foundation. Leaks will only get worse over time if they aren’t addressed quickly, and repairing leaks is often too difficult or cost-prohibitive. Therefore, if your tank is leaking, call us to schedule a replacement right away.
