Water Heater Service in Central Oregon
Just like every other appliance, your water heater has a lifespan. The average lifespan of a heater is between 8 to 12 years, but issues before that can create a more immediate need to replace it. When your heater is on its last legs, Vista Plumbing Co LLC is here to help.
We have years of experience keeping the water heaters of Central Oregon functioning smoothly and, when the time comes, replacing them for new models.
When to Replace Your Water Heater
When your unit starts to rattle and clank, leak all over the floor or fail to heat water properly, it might be time to upgrade. It's important to remember that it always pays to replace your heater before it fails completely, so here are a few things to look out for:
Rusty water is a sign that your water heater is decaying internally. Rust seriously damages the heater's integrity, and is a typical warning sign that leaks are just around the corner.
Pools of water.
If there's standing water around your unit, it's time for a new one.
That annoying rattling noise indicates your heater is suffering from sediment buildup, meaning it's less efficient. The constant banging can also lead to cracks, which lead to leaks.
Not enough hot water
This could be due to a problem with the heating elements or because of loose wiring in the heating unit.
This is caused by an increased number of bacteria in the tank. The solution to this is usually to simply flush the tank.
Exceeding its life expectancy.
Heaters are only meant to last for so long, so if yours has had a long life it could be time for a new model.
If your water heater is 10 years or older then it is almost certainly time to get a new one. Modern water heaters are more than 20% more efficient than older models.
