Signs You Need To Replace Your Old Water Heater
Sometimes, when your water heater stops working, a few simple repairs are enough to get it back up and running. However, in other instances, it might be best to replace your water heater altogether. If you think there might be something wrong with your water heater, you don’t want to wait until it’s an emergency — like a burst water heater tank.
Instead, call Universe Home Services at the first sign of trouble. We’ll be there promptly and can help you determine if you need water heater repairs or if you should replace your water heater.
Common signs you should replace your old water heater:
- The water heater is 10 to 12 years or older.
- It needs frequent, recurring repairs.
- You notice reduced efficiency/not enough hot water.
- It makes loud, unusual banging or rumbling noises.
- There’s a leak or suspected leak in the tank.
Other issues, such as a lack of hot water, sediment buildup, or rust-colored hot water from your taps could be signs of a relatively minor issue. It’s best to have a water heater professional look at your water heater to determine if repairs will be enough.
At Universe Home Services, we have over 65 years of industry experience and always provide honest recommendations. If you need a new water heater, we’ll get right to work conducting a professional installation. We’re one of the top water heater installation companies on Long Island. When you need plumbing services on Long Island, there’s no better name to trust than Universe Home Services.
How Often Should You Flush A Water Heater?
To avoid an unexpected leak or repair need, we recommend routine water heater maintenance. Flushing out your water heater is an important step in any water heater maintenance. Over time, water heaters build up sediment, calcium, and minerals in the bottom of the tanks. These lead to the unit not being able to properly heat the water and leaking from the base of the tank.
It’s recommended by most water heater manufacturers and plumbers to have a water heater flushed once a year. Doing an annual flush will prevent this sediment buildup and avoid all the potential problems that come with it.
