Three Signs That You May Need a New Water Heater

The fact of the matter is that a water heater is a crucial part of any home and is responsible for ensuring that you can take a hot shower, that your dishwasher runs properly and that your washing machine removes stubborn stains easily.

Given that it is responsible for so many different parts of your domestic or commercial life, it stands to reason that your water heater works correctly. However, like anything in life, there comes a time in your water heater’s life where you will need to consider replacing it. Three signs which indicate that your water heater may need to be replaced include:

  1. Age: Whether we care to admit it or not, the reality is that time waits for no one, and the same is true for your home’s water heater. In general, the average lifespan of a water heater is approximately ten years. So, if you have detected that your water heater isn’t operating optimally and it is around ten years old then it may be time to replace it. The older your water heater gets, the less efficient it will become and the more likely it will be to fail.
  2. Increased Energy Bills: Some people think that keeping their water heaters for fifteen or twenty years is a good cost-saving idea. However, the reality is that while it may seem like a sound plan in the short-term, in the long-term it could end up costing your home or business hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars in extra energy costs.
  3. Reduced Hot Water: Another obvious sign that your water heater isn’t working correctly is that you are receiving less hot water for showers, doing the dishes or even laundry. One of the most common reasons for an inefficient water heater is sediment buildup, especially as the heater gets older.
