Like your furnace or HVAC system, your water heater gets less efficient and is more prone to problems as it ages. If you notice any of the following warning signs, it is a good indication that it might be time to get your unit replaced.
Top Water Heater Warning Signs
• If it feels like you're waiting longer and longer for water to get warm at the faucets throughout the house, it is a big sign that your heater is old and/and incapable of doing its job efficiently.
• If water or utility bills keep rising, it's normally a major sign that your water heater is getting old. On average, 10 years is the typical life span of most water heaters. However, heaters powered by electricity tend to last a little longer than those powered by natural gas.
• Hot water looks rusty when coming from the faucets can telegraph hot water tank issues. Cold water looking rusty is usually a different issue. It's more likely something to do with your home's water pipe system.
• If you've had to have your heater repaired more than twice in the past two years or if you've had it repaired after any of the above warning signs and you are still having problems, it is smart to spend any more money on replacing your water heater versus wasting money on any future repairs.
