Signs It’s Time for a New Water Heater

Dec 23

You will need a water heater in your home no matter what time of year it is. However, your water heater becomes even more important in the cold winter months. If your water heater is on the fritz, a replacement might be the most cost-effective option. Below are some signs that it’s time for a new water heater.

Age is Not Just A Number

Like any other appliance in your home, your water heater has a lifespan.  Gas water heaters usually last 10-12 years, while electric water heaters last 10-15 years. If your water heater is nearing the end of its lifespan, you will need a replacement in the near future.

Rust in the Water

Over time, the sediment at the bottom of your water heater will start to accumulate. This can lead to rust in your water. Clearly, this is not safe. Our plumbers can safely install a new water heater in your home.


Water should be inside of your hot water heater. It should not be leaking onto the floor. If this scenario happens to you, it is important that you contact a plumber as soon as possible. After all, a leak in your water heater could lead to a full breakdown.
