Is It Time for A New Hot Water System?
For a country like ours, access to hot water is, fortunately, one of those things that is a complete afterthought for the majority of the population. You are free to boil a kettle whenever you wish and never have to worry about the prospect of a cold shower, but that is only when everything in your home is working as it should be!
Here at Galaxy Hot Water, we make sure that every homeowner in our surrounding area is equipped with the best possible systems for hot water on the Central Coast. Without further ado, here are some of the key signs that it might be time for the installation of a new hot water system in your home.
- One of the first signs is a simple one; the age of your unit! You will be able to find the age of your system by finding the serial number and manufacturer sticker. The general rule is that if it is more than ten years old, it is probably time for an upgrade.
- If the hot water coming out of the pipes looks rusty, then that is a classic sign that it is time to upgrade. If it starts with rust, then that means that a leak won’t be too far behind.
- The older your water heater gets, the more sediment there is going to be at the bottom of the tank. Over time this sediment will eventually harden at the bottom, which results in the system having to do more work to do the same old job. This overwork will often cause banging and rumbling within the heater system, so listen out for that.
- Of course, the final classic sign that you need to upgrade your system is a leak! Leaks obviously have the capability to damage your basement, utility closet or wherever else you keep your system, and not only will this lead to a broken heater, but also to extra home maintenance costs for you.
