Water Heater Trouble: Signs that it's Time for Repair or ReplacementIt's no fun to wake up early for work and then hop into the shower—-only to find an endless stream of cold water. If your water heater is malfunctioning, then this is just the sort of problem that can arise. As soon as you suspect a water heater issue, you'll want to have a professional come by to take a look. At River City Heating & Air, our technicians are highly experienced with identifying and fixing water problems. And when it comes time for a new water heater, we can flawlessly complete the installation.

Common Water Heater Problems

With older water heaters, corrosion is often a problem. If the tank's metal has a lot of rust, then replacement will probably be necessary. Rust also often becomes an issue on the burner components. Another sign of corrosion is that the water coming from your faucet has a rusty color.

Murky faucet water is another sign of trouble. This suggests that metal has flaked off within the tank, causing the water to become discolored. This problem can potentially be resolved, at least temporarily, by draining and flushing the water heater.

Water heater leaks should be addressed ASAP. There's reason to suspect a leak if moisture is accumulating around your water heater. Common locations from which water heaters leak are fittings, temperature and pressure release valves, and drain valves. If your tank is leaking due to damage, then it's likely time for water heater replacement.

Old age is another reason that water heaters have to be replaced. Conventional water heaters typically have a 10 to 15 year life expectancy. Tankless water heaters can hold up well for over 20 years.
