Don’t wait for your water heater to fail: Some signs that you should replace your water heater.
- The tank has visible signs of leaking. Sometimes this can be seen as a puddle of water or it may be seen as a dried-up water spot. Don’t be fooled by the dried-up water spots! As a water heater heats up and expands and contracts the leaks can come and go.
- Age water heater. This is a very critical indicator having been in business for over 120 years we find that the average life of the water heater in the wind and fire is between 7 to 12 years. Area has a relatively high-water content which can be detrimental to the life of a water heater.
- Hot water is rusty in color. Rusty color can be a sign that the tank is rusting from the inside. It is also possible that the rust could be caused from old galvanized piping in the house.
- The water heater rumbles and makes a knocking sound when the water is heating up. This rumbling occurs from sediment that has been building up on the bottom of the tank. When that settlement is heated and reheated it will harden to form a thick layer at the bottom of the water heater. This is a very good sign that the water heater is nearing the end of his life. This also reduces the efficiency of the water heater because the burner must heat the calcium first before he can get to the water.
- Running out of hot water. There could be many causes for running on a hot water, but if you’ve had no changes in your household and you find yourself running short of hot water and it never used to be a problem this could be a sign that the dip tube is broken or a large amount of sediment has built up in the water heater.
How to determine the age of your water heater
All water all water heaters will have a date code imprinted on their nameplate. This nameplate is typically found on the front of the water heater. The date may also be embedded in the serial number. See below how to find the date for some of the major manufacturers.
The first two characters of the serial number represent the year and month of manufacture. The remainder of the serial is a sequential production number, seven digits in length before December 2007 (DM), and eight digits in length after.
The first two numbers of the serial number represent the month and the third and fourth numbers represents the year of manufacture.
