Residential water heaters are built tough to last. In fact, most models can stay functional up to 20 years depending on type and quality. But no matter how dependable and well-built these valuable appliances are, they need care and attention, too. At times, your device will show signs that it needs repair or replacement. You just need to be aware of those signs and know the right course of action when symptoms start to appear. Repairs will temporarily solve the issue, but eventually, you may need to replace your water heater so that you can have a better performing unit.
Telling Signs To Watch Out For When It Comes To Your Water Heater
- Unusual noise. In some cases, a sound produced by your water heater is nothing to worry about, but loud noises such as popping, rumbling, or screeching sounds made by your unit may indicate a problem. If you are not sure what is causing your heater to make an unusual noise, call your trusted water heater professional so they can properly assess the source of the problem.
- Rotten-egg smell. Any foul odor in your water heater can be caused by different reasons and needs to be evaluated by a skilled plumbing expert. A trained professional will do tests, detect the source smell, and offer the best solutions.
- Your unit is old. On average, water heaters last ten years or longer if maintained properly, but you don’t have to wait to for that long to start paying attention to your unit. Once your device reached five years, it is recommended to start regularly inspecting your device whether it needs repair or replacement. If your heater is too old to function well (this is best determined by a licensed technician), a water heater replacement may be your only option.
If you notice one or more of the signs above, it is probably time to have your device replaced with a new one. Contact Douglass Orr Plumbing for professional water heater replacement in Miami or any plumbing concern you may have.
