No Hot Water Comes From Your Faucets and Fixtures
It’s also important that you look into replacing your water heater if your bills are starting to become outrageous. Check them each and every month to learn a normal range. From there, you’ll be able to notice when an uncharacteristic spike has occurred.
This typically happens when your water heater is having to work too hard, which is a sign that it may need some serious repair service.
You've Had Your Hot Water System a Long Time
Age always plays a role when you’re thinking about whether to repair or replace your hot water heater.
You might expect your hot water heater to last as long as 12 years if it’s well taken care of. Keep accurate and consistent repair records for your water heater in order to know how old it is and how it has been holding up.
Buying a maintenance plan for your water heater is an excellent way to stay on top of these matters with full documentation. If there are significant leaks, loud sounds, and other problems with a water heater that you’ve already invested a lot of time and money into, it’s probably best to cut your losses.
It's Time to Upgrade the Technology
Finally, you will definitely need to purchase a new water heater if you’d like to embrace fresh technology.
Consider making the change to a tankless water heater so that your technology is as modern as possible. There are also solar water heaters, and systems that make use of smart technology to more accurately measure output.
