Here are some signs it may be time to replace your water heater:

You Have an Old Water Heater

If your water heater is getting older and you want to check the age of the unit, you can find the exact age by looking for the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker near the top of the unit. The first two numbers usually represent the year (stickers may vary). If your water heater is older than 10 years old, it’s time to consider replacement.

You Have Rusty Water

If your hot water is coming out rusty, your water heater could be rusting on the inside and might start leaking soon. If rust really is coming from your water heater, it’s time to replace it with a new unit.

You Don’t Have Enough Hot Water

If your shower keeps turning cold before you’re finished showering, it’s time to get a new water heater, as a lack of hot water is the most common sign that your water heater is failing. Sediment often builds up over time in water heaters, which separates water from heat sources and takes up space.

You Hear a Rumbling Noise

As water heaters get older, sediment builds up on the bottom of the tanks. As the sediment is heated and reheated, it eventually hardens, wasting energy and using a lot of your water heater’s capacity. When this happens, you may notice banging or rumbling noises from your unit. This also results in a lack of hot water. When you begin to hear rumbling and banging noises from your water heater, it’s time for a replacement.

You Experience Frequent Leaks

As metal heats, it starts to expand, which can result in slight fractures – meaning water can begin to leak from your unit. A leak could end up damaging your basement or utility closet. If you find a leak, have your water heater tank replaced right away by an experienced professional.
