Signs That it is Time to Replace Your Water Heater

Your Water Heater is Not Turning On

If your water heater is not running, the system has likely experienced a complete breakdown. While occasional malfunctions that temporarily prevent the system from running can occur, complete failure to start might be a sign that your water heater is reaching the end of its operational life. 

Before jumping to conclusions, ensure that the power supply, pilot light (for gas heaters), and circuit breakers are functioning correctly. If all checks out and your water heater still will not turn on, contact Friendly for a replacement.

The System is Tripping the Circuit Breaker

When a water heater continually trips the circuit breaker or blows a fuse, it suggests an underlying electrical issue. This could result from a faulty heating element or wiring problems within the water heater. If repeated attempts to fix the circuit breaker issue do not resolve the problem, it is probably time to replace the system.

Hot Water is Discolored

If the hot water coming from your taps appears discolored or rusty, it could be a sign of corrosion or sediment buildup within the water heater tank. As a water heater ages, mineral deposits and rust can accumulate, affecting water quality and causing issues with the water heater itself.

Water Tastes or Smells Strange

Unusual odors or tastes in your hot water can be indicative of bacterial growth or chemical reactions within the water heater. If your water has a metallic, sulfuric, or otherwise unpleasant smell or taste, it is a sign that the system may be compromised. Replacing the system altogether will likely be the more cost-effective choice.

The System Frequently Requires Repairs

The occasional repair is usually nothing to worry about. But if your water heater is experiencing issues seemingly every year, replacing the water heater may prove to be a more cost-effective solution in the long run, saving you from ongoing repair expenses.

Choosing the Right Water Heater for Your Home

Finding the right water heater for your home will depend on the hot water requirements of your home. Smaller families can probably get by with a 50-gallon water heater, while larger families will need a water heater with a larger tank.

Efficiency will also play a role in your decision. It is essential to consider the energy efficiency of the water heater you choose, as it directly impacts your utility bills and environmental footprint. Look for water heaters with high Energy Factor (EF) ratings or ENERGY STAR certification, as these indicate better energy efficiency and performance.
