We have come to rely on hot water for many things. We use it to bathe, shower, clean our dishes, and to clean our clothes. We have also come a long way because we do not have to heat our water in a big pot over an open fire. We have constant access to hot water in our homes because of our hot water heaters. Since we are so used to having hot water readily available to us with the turn of a faucet or tap, it can be frustrating when our water heaters are not heating the water properly or are not heating it at all. If your water heater is not working, you should have water heater replacement done as soon as possible so you can keep enjoying having easy access to hot water when you need it most.
Sometimes, water heaters do not stop heating the water completely, but they give signs that they are on their way out and water heater replacement is necessary. This is especially true if your water heater is over 10 years old, because they usually only last for 10-12 years before they need to be replaced. When your water heater is not working properly, it will usually make a clunking or a banging noise when it is heating water. It will sound like someone is on the inside banging on the water heater with a metal pipe. This means that sediment has built up in your water heater and may eventually cause problems, like leaks, cracks, or will not heat the water. Another sign of a problem is when your water heater leaks. This means there is a crack somewhere that is allowing water to leak. Both are serious problems and should be looked at by a professional.
