Water heaters, on average, have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years before they need to be replaced. People often tend to wait until their water heater develops a leak before replacing it. This is not recommended because this, depending on how much your water heater leaks, can cause serious damage to your home and belongings.

Signs that your water heater needs to be repaired or replaced.

  1. If your water heater is more than 10 years old, you should consider replacing it before you see a leak, if possible. This ensures minimal damage to your home and belongings and also ensures that you don’t have a lot of downtime with no hot water in between waiting for a replacement.
  2. If you’re noticing rusty water coming from your water heater, this can indicate that your water heater is rusting from the inside and can begin to leak soon if no action is taken soon.
  3. If you’re hearing rumbling noises from the inside of your tank. This can mean that your water heater is building up sediment at the bottom of the tank. This is normal as a water heater ages, but means that your water heater is nearing the end of its life and should be replaced soon.
