If your water heater starts to fail, you will most likely have any clue where to begin on trying to fix it. Most Lehigh Acres homeowners don’t have the time or energy to research all the complexities of their water heaters, which is where the experts at Affordable Air and Heat come in. Our factory-trained technicians have all the tools and technology to replace your faulty water heater and get you back to doing your laundry and taking those long, indulgent showers.
Signs It’s Time to Replace Your Water Heater
Unfortunately, water heaters don’t last forever, and many Lehigh Acres homeowners are woefully unprepared for a water heater breakdown. The estimated average lifespan of a home water heater is between 10 and 15 years, yet we know from experience many water heaters fail before they reach that milestone, no matter how well-maintained they are.
Luckily, most water heaters exhibit some distinct warning signs before giving out completely, so savvy homeowners can learn what to look for to prepare for the inevitable need to replace their water heaters.
Water puddling around the base of the heater: Water heater tanks heat metal, which leads to expansion and contraction. Once a tank has experienced a given amount of wear and tear, cracks start to appear. Every time the heater’s tank expands, those cracks become worse, until water starts to leak out.
Strange noises inside your water heater: Alarming rumbling and banging noises indicate that a layer of sediment has built up at the bottom of your water heater tank. The more sediment accumulates within the tank, the worse the problem gets. Eventually, sediment buildup can make the water heater tank brittle and prone to leaking or overheating. When that happens, it’s time to get it replaced by a qualified tech in Lehigh Acres.
Your hot water has a rusty color: If your hot water flows out with the familiar rust color, it means the interior of your water heater tank is corroded. This symptom probably indicates your water heater is damaged beyond repair.
Too many repairs: If you have to call for repairs for your water heater more than twice a year, that’s too frequent. Instead of continuing to waste money on a water heater that’s on its last legs, call us for a new installation.
