A water heater may not be the first thing you think of when it comes to life’s little annoyances, but the truth is that if your water heater breaks, you could be left without hot water for a long time. Like many other appliances, water heaters aren’t made to last forever; therefore, it’s important to watch out for any potential signs of failure before it’s too late.
One of the first signs your water heater might be failing is that water is leaking from it. This could mean that there’s a crack in your tank, but it could also be related to other issues such as mineral buildup.
If you notice a leak, it is crucial that you call a plumber immediately to avoid any major damage.
If you find that your water is either scalding hot or ice-cold, something is wrong with your heater. It could be an issue with the thermostat, which can be easily replaced; however, it could also indicate that your water heater is on its way out.
If the water coming out of your faucets starts to change color, it could signify that sediment or rust has begun to build up in your tank. Over time, these elements can work their way through any plumbing pipes connected to your tank and affect all the water in your home.
If your water heater is dying, sometimes it will start making strange high-pitched or thumping noises. Hiring a professional is the best way to know whether your water system needs to be serviced and cleaned or if it is failing and in need of replacement.
