Little do we know how easy water heaters make our lives. Can you imagine taking a cold shower everyday (if you are a shower everyday type of person). Water heaters are easily one of the most expensive system a house or building can have and when they fail, it can make life a little annoying when it comes to laundry and bathing. If you are thinking that maybe it is time to replace your home water heater.

Carter’s my Plumber provides water heater repair in Indianapolis, Carmel water heater repair, Fishers and Greenwood.

There are a couple of symptoms that you can look for before you go hot-waterless!

When You Should Replace Your Water Heater?

Remember that water heaters have an expected lifespan of about ten years before things may go south. Maybe you built the house you live in and know how old your water heater is. But, if you bought the home you can check when the last time it was serviced and installed on the water heater service sticker. This is usually located toward the top of the water heater and looks like this.

Knocking Noises

If you are hearing “knocking” noises coming from your water heater. That is a sign of sediment build-up. Sediment comes from the minerals in the water and it can harden and knock against the tank. Usually, a regular water heater flush can prevent this from happening.

Rusty or Cloudy Water

If you realize that your water has a rusty or cloudy look to it. That is a sign that either one of the two things are happening:

  • If rusty, the tank has rust on the inside and needs to be replaced. Since tanks are metal, this is bound to happen at sometime.
  • If cloudy, this is again a sign of sediment build-up.

Water Around Your Water Heater

If there is water pooling around the bottom of your tank, this is a possible sign that your tank is fractured or there is a fitting loose that causes your water heater to leak. Because metal expands when it gets hot. This can cause little fractures on the tank. Be sure to check that all fittings around the water heater are dry first before thinking it is a fracture. But, if there are fractures, this is when you should replace your water heater.

Your “Hot Water” is Cold

Obviously, if you are attempting to get hot water from the sink and it is “luke warm” or simply cold. There could be something wrong with the thermostat or the heating element within your water heater.
