It’s happened to most of us—we wake up one morning and go to have a shower only to find that the water is cold! It’s a rude shock and one that generally results in eye-rolling and frustration as we come to the rapid conclusion that we’re going to need a new water heater installed, or have the existing one repaired at the very least.
Of course, these types of things always seem to happen at the most inconvenient times, though when is it ever convenient for the water heater to suddenly stop working? When you’re faced with this problem, you need to call a plumbing company with expertise in fixing water heaters and installing new ones.
Has Your System Given Up?
The lifetime of a typical water heater ranges somewhere between 8 and 12 years. When you add up all of the services you get out of a single unit, the cost for having a new one installed doesn’t work out to all that much annually.
Water heaters do a lot of work in their lifetimes. In many geographical areas, the water has extra minerals and other materials in it that build up in the heater tank and may even corrode the lining. When the lining begins to corrode, you may even see very fine particles of rust in hot water running out of the tap, which is a sign that you may even have a leak in the tank. If you start to see some rust particles in your water, check to see if there is any sign of a leak around your tank.
