Old Hot Water System

One of the biggest indicators that it’s time for a new hot water system is if your existing one is very old.

With proper care, your hot water system should last at least 10 years, sometimes longer.

But if your system is more than 10 years old, it’s time to start considering buying a new one before you have a problem.

You can figure out how old your system is by checking the serial number. 

You Hear Noises

In general, you hot water heater shouldn’t be making noises.

If you suddenly start hearing strange sounds, you might need a new system.

As your system ages, sediment gathers at the bottom of the tank. As the water heats, the sediment hardens and causing banging or rumbling noises.

Those signs mean the tank is nearing the end of its life and you’ll need a new one soon.

You Have Rusty Water

When you turn on your tap, the water should be clean and clear.

It shouldn’t be rusty. If it is, it’s a good sign that your hot water system needs to be replaced and upgraded.

Rust in your water is a result of corrosion in your hot water tank.

Sometimes you can fix this problem, but most of the time you’ll need to have the system replaced.

You Don’t Get as Much Hot Water

If your hot water system isn’t heating the water, it’s not doing its job.

And that likely means it’s time to start considering a new one. As your hot water system gets older, it won’t do as good of a job heating the water.

If you notice that you aren’t getting as much hot water as you once did, your hot water likely needs to be replaced.
