Signs Your Water Heater Is On Its Last Leg

Your water heater is something that’s easy to forget about. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Unfortunately, that doesn’t mean upkeep isn’t required from time to time. Eventually, it will be time to invest in a new one. Can you remember the last time you got a new water heater? Do you seem to be having problems with your current one? Well, if you can’t remember or you’re having problems, you may need a replacement.

Check out these common signs of water heater failure. Afterwards, give us a call to install a newer model for you. At Stadler Plumbing, our licensed plumbers have got your back!

Lack Of Hot Water

One of the most obvious signs of a broken water heater is a lack of hot water throughout the house. This is a major inconvenience! Your household is left without the ability to take warm showers, properly clean dishes or laundry, and wash their hands with anything – except freezing water.

If you’re currently faced with warm water issues, then call us in to take a look. If you need a new water heater, we can help you find the best fit for your home. From tank-less to electric to gas to high-efficiency. We’ve got everything you’re looking for! Contact us, so we get you back to your normal routine in no time.

Strange Noises

Another sign that your water heater needs some help is rumbling or clanking noises coming from inside of it. This is due to sediment that builds up as your appliance ages, and it is something that should definitely not be ignored. This build up hardens and can damage the inside of your tank, causing holes to form and leaks to occur. Your water heater will not function as efficiently. Unfortunately, you will face a lot of extra damage that could have been avoided by installing a replacement!

Rusty Water

Rusty-colored water in your tub? If this is coming from the hot side of your faucet, then it’s likely due to rust building up inside your water heater. This indicates that a lot of deterioration has occurred and is a clear sign that leaks may soon start to form. It’s best to replace your system before further damage is done.

How Old Is Your Water Heater?

Is your water heater is showing no signs of trouble, but you can’t remembered when it was installed? Well, then it’s wise to check the age. If your water heater is over ten years old, then you’ll want to look into getting a new one soon. It won’t likely run well much longer, forcing you to suffer through leaks, rusty water, cold showers, and more. It’s your best bet financially to invest a new water heater before damage occurs, rather than wait until you’re forced to repair water-damaged belongings.

There are lots of problems that water heaters could face, and we’ve only named a few of the more common ones. If you fear issues in the near future, save yourself time, money, and hassle by giving us a call us today. We can cover all of your water heater needs!
