How to Tell If Your Water Heater Needs Replacement

The average tank water heater has a lifespan of 8-15 years, with most homeowners finding that their water heater needs to be replaced within the 10-12 year timeframe. 

The following symptoms may be signs that you need to replace your water heater:

  • The water heater is leaking. When a water heater reaches the end of its lifespan, it may start leaking near the base.
  • You hear banging or rumbling noises when in use. Over time, the water heater tank can build up sediment. Eventually, the sediment will harden into clumps that may move around and bang or rumble when in use. 
  • The hot water output is diminishing. As water heaters age, they become less effective at heating. They also have a reducing water capacity due to the buildup of sediment in the tank.
  • Discoloration or rust in hot water. If you're noticing a discoloration or rust in your hot water, it may be a sign that the inside of the water heater tank has corroded and needs to be replaced.
  • Your water heater is over 10-years-old. Once a water heater reaches the end of its lifespan, it may be more cost-effective to replace the entire unit than to continue to make repairs so close to the end of the lifespan.

Water Heater Maintenance Tips

Regular water heater maintenance can significantly improve the lifespan of your water heater. Fortunately, routine water heater maintenance is something that most homeowners can complete on their own. Thomas Plumbing recommends taking the following steps to maintain your tank water heater:

  • Keep the thermostat at or just below 120 degrees Fahrenheit. 
  • Test the temperature and pressure relief valve annually.
  • Check the anode rod regularly. 
  • Insulate the water heater pipes.
  • Flush your water heater every 6-12 months.
  • Drain sediment from the water heater tank.

If you're unsure how to complete any of the steps listed above, or would prefer the peace of mind that hiring a professional brings, call Thomas Plumbing at (910) 727-1641 to schedule annual water heater maintenance.
