Think Your Water Heater Is Wearing Out?

Here’s What to Look for

Your water heater is a workhorse in your northern New Jersey home. You depend on this marvelous machine to provide you with all of the hot water you need, whether it’s showers and baths, laundry, dishwashing, home cleaning and more!

When Is It Time to Replace My Water heater?

The average life expectancy for a conventional tank water heater is around 10 to 12 years. If your water heater is about that age, it’s time to think about upgrading. Here are some other trouble signs that tell you a new water heater may be in order.

  1. Higher energy costs – If your energy expenses keep getting higher even though not much has changed in your household, your water heater may be overworking to do its job – and suffering from inefficiency as a result.
  2. Leaks or rusty water – A puddle of water under your tank – or rusty water coming from it – are signs that your water heater could be corroding from the inside out. You have no choice now. A rusted tank can’t be repaired and you need a new water heater.
  3. Hard water – White stains on your utensils and glassware are common signs of hard (mineral-containing) water. Your water supply could be hard to begin with, or the problem could be the result of a long-term build-up of lime in your tank; either way, those minerals will reduce efficiency and shorten the lifespan of your water heater.
  4. Unusual noises – Growling or gurgling sounds in your storage tank are usually a sign of sediment build-up – a problem that eventually leads to costly water heater repairs or premature replacement if it is not addressed.
