Water Heater Installation & Replacement in Charlotte and the Surrounding Areas
A water heater is an important part of maintaining your family’s comfort within your home. If you live near Charlotte, Huntersville, and Concord, NC, and your water heater is malfunctioning or the warranty has expired, it might be a good idea to call the professionals at Three Way Plumbing to help you replace it with an energy-efficient model.
Signs You Need to Replace Your Water Heater
If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it is more than likely nearing the end of its life span and should be replaced to prevent expensive repairs when it fails and leaking water everywhere. Of course there are many factors that go into the lifespan of a water heater, but the average is 8-12 years. If you’re unsure, one way to try to determine your water heater’s age is to look at the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the top of the tank. Usually, the first two numbers are the year it was made, but manufacturers can vary.
Rust-colored hot water is a sign that the inside of your tank is corroded, and it may begin leaking soon. To confirm that only your hot water is rusty, you can fill your tub with water from both the hot and cold taps separately. If only the hot water fill is discolored, you more than likely need a new water heater. Caution, at this stage it is too late to flush out the rust and minerals causing this from your water heater. The reason is if the tank is corroding from the inside out, it is those small particles of rust that are sealing the holes in the tank, and it could begin to leak everywhere once you flush it.
Running Out of Hot Water
The most frequent indicator that your water heater is failing is a lack of hot water. If you are more frequently running out of hot water while showering or your water is not as hot as it used to be, you might need a new water heater. Sediment builds up over time in the tank, which makes it difficult or impossible to properly produce hot water.
If you notice banging or rumbling noises coming from your water heater, and you are running out of hot water often, you should thoroughly check the unit for leaks. The sounds are an indication of sediment buildup, which decreases water heating efficiency, stresses the system, and can lead to cracks or holes in the tank.
When metal gets hot, it expands, and fractures in your tank can allow water to escape. If you spot a leak from the tank itself, have your tank replaced right away before it worsens and causes expensive water damage to your home. If you notice water on the floor around the water heater but no visible signs of leaking, that may be another issue that needs to be addressed, and the T&P (temperature and pressure valve) is actually doing its job releasing water from the tank.
