You depend on your water heater to provide reliable hot water when you need it. Here are three reasons to consider a water heater replacement for your Charlottesville, Virginia home.
Your Water Heater Is More Than 10 Years Old
Most water heaters have a useful life of about 10 years. Since water heating is responsible for nearly 20 percent of energy expenditures in the average home, upgrading to a more efficient water heater can save you money on your monthly utilities. A new water heater installation can also prevent unexpected breakdowns and leaks that could cause damage to your home. Investing in a new water heater can pay off in improved reliability and lower utility bills for years into the future.
You See Rust in Your Water
Rust and corrosion in your hot water are two key warning signs that you may need a water heater replacement. The experts at ENERGY STAR also recommend replacement if your current water heater leaks or makes loud or rumbling noises during operation. These could be signs that your water heater is failing and that you need professional installation services for a new water heating system.
Your Water Heater Does Not Produce Enough Hot Water
Over time, sediment can build up in your water heater and may require the assistance of a qualified plumber to remove. Aging systems can also fail to produce adequate hot water because of deterioration of the heating elements. Investing in professional installation services for a water heater replacement can provide you and your family with reliable hot water for showering, laundry, and all your daily needs.
