3 Signs You Need a Water Heater Replacement

Hot water is an essential resource for homeowners, allowing people to bathe, wash dishes, and so much more. Without a functioning water heater, you wouldn’t be able to go about your normal daily routine.

If your water heater is malfunctioning or failing to operate consistently, you may find yourself struggling to complete everyday tasks. Although some water heater problems can be repaired by a professional, there are a few signs to look out for that may indicate you need water heater replacement services. Here are three important things to keep an eye on:

  • You can’t get hot water. The most obvious sign that you need a water heater replacement service is if you can’t get any hot water. Sometimes, when you can’t get the hot water you need, your water heater just needs to be repaired. However, if your water heater is old and outdated, you may need a replacement service instead. Your plumber will let you know which service is recommended for your situation.
  • Your water heater is leaking. Leaking is never a good sign, and if your water heater is leaking, it probably needs to be replaced. Leaks can cause major damage to your property, so you shouldn’t ignore any leaking that you see. Reach out to your plumber for a water heater replacement service to help minimize the risk of a leak negatively affecting your home.
  • You notice obvious damages or hear strange noises. If you notice corrosion or hear strange noises coming from your water heater, you should reach out to your plumber.
