You probably don’t think much about the hot water tank in your home or business unless there’s a problem. When you’re aware of the signs your water heater is on its way out, you can make arrangements to have it repaired or replaced in advance. That way, you don’t have to wait until it breaks completely and you’re left without hot water, waiting for it to be fixed. Here’s what to look for.
It’s becoming harder to get hot water.
When the volume of hot water in your home isn’t meeting your needs, it could mean that your tank is too small. Or it could mean that there’s a mechanical problem with the temperature or controls.
The tank is leaking.
Although many homeowners would know to look for a cracked or split water tank, the signs of leaking can be more subtle. Look for wet floors or puddles under or near your water tank. Inspect the exterior of the tank for rivulets of water running down the side.
Your heater is old.
Like almost every other household appliance, a water heater will eventually reach the natural end of its lifespan and require replacement. Once yours is more than 8-10 years old, it’s time to start anticipating the need to replace it.
