Do You Need A New Water Heater?

Getting a new water heater installed in your home seems like a big step to take, but not if you have expert plumbers on the job. If your water heater doesn’t seem to be living up to your expectations, you could be due for a replacement. There are a few glaring signs to watch out for that will let you know it’s time to call in our licensed and insured staff. Read up on these below, then give us a call so we can help!

Cold, Rusty Water

One of the best ways to check up on your water heater is to keep a close eye on your water. Water heaters that are on their last leg won’t warm up water as quickly. This means you’ll be standing by your sink or shower for quite some time before getting the heat you’re looking for. If you experience this or aren’t getting any hot water at all, your water heater needs to be examined. You’ll also notice your water goes back to cold much quicker than usual.

In addition, your water may appear rust-colored. Turn on the hot water and see if that’s where the discoloration is coming from. If so, it’s possible that the appliance is rusting on the inside, which is a clear sign of old age and future leaks.

Old Age

Look back to when you first installed your water heater. If it’s been 10 years or more, then you should definitely start considering different options for your home. If issues haven’t started to occur, they likely soon will, and you may notice heating problems in the near future.

Needless to say, if you notice water around the water heater, this is another clear sign that something isn’t working right. We do our best to help customers avoid this problem altogether. This can trigger a lot of damage, meaning you’ll be shelling out even more money than originally planned. Stay ahead of the game by calling in Stadler Plumbing today!

Strange Noises

Matter known as sediment builds up inside of water heaters as they age. The more these are reheated, the harder they become until they eventually start banging into the sides of the water heater, triggering some loud noises. If you start hearing these sounds, your water heater is likely being forced to work harder. You’ll then start noticing a lack of efficiency from the appliance.

All that rumbling and knocking around can also trigger damage, especially if there’s already rust inside the water heater. This is another instance where you’ll want to be on the look out for leaks!

Other Signs

In addition, a faulty pilot light, a main burner that won’t stay lit, strange odors, and excessively hot water are signs that you need your system inspected as soon as possible. Let us help you find the best new option for your home! Call our team today!

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!
