Clues that your water heater may need to be replaced

The water heater is old. The average life expectancy of a conventional storage water heater with a tank is between 10 and 12 years. If your water heater is approaching or is at that age, or is even older, now is the time to begin planning its replacement.

Rusty water. If you notice rust-colored water coming from your faucet when you use hot water, it’s possible that the water heater tank is the source. This might be a sign of an imminent leak or a water heater failure. Get in touch with The Fuel Company right away so that we can assess the situation and get started on a replacement.

Increasing energy costs. Did you know that water heating accounts for about 20% of your home’s energy usage? That’s why water heaters may be the culprit if you see an inexplicable rise in your energy costs. Upgrading to a new water heater can help slash your energy bills.

Strange noises. When your water heater’s tank is being heated, any strange noises are most likely the result of sediment accumulating and hardening at the bottom of the tank. Your water heater may be beyond repair and need to be replaced.

Wet floor around the water heater. Leaks in your water heater are commonly small and not easy to see. But even these leaks can create a tiny puddle or damp floor around your water heater over time. Contact us as soon as possible if the floor surrounding your water heater is damp or if you see puddling.
