Signs Your Water Heater Needs Repair or Replaced

To avoid waking up to a cold shower or basement full of water, look out for these signs that your water heater is failing and call a professional plumber if these conditions apply to your home’s water heater:

  1. Outdated

Ten years is the average lifespan of water heaters, so you should consider upgrading your water heater with a new, energy-efficient model if it’s over a decade old. If you’re not sure of the age of your water heater tank, you’ll find it listed as part of the serial number on the manufacturer’s sticker. 


The code starts with a letter followed by a series of numbers that help to determine the month and year the tank was manufactured using the following method:


  • Consider the number placement of the letter in the alphabet. For example, E is the fifth letter and represents the fifth month, which is May.
  • The two numbers following the letter are the last two digits of the year of production. A serial number that begins with E12 would have been manufactured in May 2012.


  1. Leaking Water

After continuous exposure to water, the expansion and shrinkage of metal will soon take a toll on your water heater tank. It’s essential to consider replacement at the first sign of a leak while it’s still small enough not to cause significant damage to the area. 


It’s also wise to perform a visual inspection around the tank base monthly to ensure there’s no water collection. If there are signs of leakage, contact Scott Hale for water heater repair or replacement services.

  1. Short on Hot Water

If you’re struggling with running out of hot water, your current water heater may no longer compete with the needs of your family. Whether it’s time for a flush or it’s a thermostat issue, Scott Hale will detect the problem and provide the perfect solution. We offer tank and tankless water heaters, along with repair and maintenance services.

  1. Water Quality Decreasing

If you notice the quality of your hot water deteriorating–like water that is rust-colored, odorous, or containing small flakes of metal–your water heater may be rusting inside. This can lead to health issues and should be addressed immediately. 

  1. Making Alarming Noises

Unusual sounds from any appliance can be concerning; the same goes for your water heater. Noises such as banging or rumbling can warrant a severe issue that requires repair or replacement of your current water heater.
