Signs You Need a New Water Heater

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Your water heater performs silent, selfless duty on behalf of your household, often operating for years tucked away in a forgotten corner. When problems arise, they tend to be fairly dramatic, and depending upon the circumstances, it may indicate that you need to replace your old water heater with a new one. Water heater installation in Glendale is a fairly common service offered by any qualified plumber, but before you pull the trigger on a replacement unit, you need to spot the signs that you need a new water heater to begin with. Specifics vary, but a few general guidelines can help no matter what the situation.

We handle water heater installation in Glendale with courtesy and professionalism, and we’re dedicated to helping you make the right decision for your circumstances. Give us a call today to make an appointment and  let us show you what we can do!

  • Heating bills are going up. The most obvious sign that something is wrong with your water heater is an unexpected increase in your monthly bills. If you notice a spike in costs, especially if you aren’t using hot water any more than normal, you may want to think about getting a new unit.
  • Performance is dropping. If it takes a long time for your heater to warm the water, if the water doesn’t stay warm for long, or if you detect signs of specific problems, such as strange noises or rust on the unit, it may be time to look for a new one. This is especially true if you’ve already sunk a lot of money in repairs to correct those issues.
  • The water heater is old. If you’ve kept your water heater well-maintained and it still functions properly, there’s no reason it can’t keep going for years after it should normally give up the ghost. But if your heater is more than a decade old and you’re experiencing repeated problems of the sort discussed above, that could be the step that requires a replacement.
