Water heaters can last quite a while, if you take proper care of them. No amount of repairs or maintenance can keep your water heater operating indefinitely, though. If your water heater is getting close to the end of its lifespan, it’s a good idea to be able to identify the warning signs as soon as possible. The earlier you can identify that your water heater is on its last legs, the lower the chances that you’ll be surprised by a sudden breakdown. Have a look at these signs that you need to install a new water heater.
It’s important to note, here, that we’re not talking about low output due to exhausting the standing supply of hot water. Any water heater will eventually be overwhelmed if you put enough demand on it for a long enough period of time. However, if your water heater is not generating even a moderate amount of output, it may be time to replace it. That kind of low output is often caused by accumulated wear and tear on the system, which can only be remedied by replacing it.
All systems need repairs every once in a while. However, the older a system gets, the more worn out its various parts become. Eventually, these parts will start to fail in rapid succession. If you need to have your water heater repaired multiple times a year, you definitely should go ahead and replace it. As it stands, you’re just replacing the system one piece at a time, anyway.
