Signs Your Hot Water System Needs Replacing
July 20, 2020
Every hot water system in Coffs Harbor is essential for heating water that you can use for bathing, cooking and cleaning.
Here at North Coast Power and Water, we are committed to ensuring that your system always works like it should.
Hot water heaters don’t last forever and you’ll need to replace yours when it wears out or breaks down.
Check out these signs that tell you that you need a new hot water system.
If you don’t know how old your hot water system is, that’s a good sign you need a new one.
However, you can look at the hot water tank and it should tell you when it was installed, which will give you a good idea of how old it really is.
If it’s more than 10 years old, it might be a good idea to consider replacing it before you have problems.
It’s Not Giving You Enough Hot Water
Are you running out of hot water before you’re done showering?
If you end up with cold water before you’re ready for it, your hot water system is probably in need of a replacement.
You can try having the tank cleaned of sediment to see if that helps, but if it doesn’t, it’s time for a new one.
If you notice rust in the water when you run it out of the faucets, your hot water system is probably on its last legs.
In fact, rust in the water indicates that the inside of your hot water tank is degrading and you’ll probably have to deal with a leak soon if you don’t have it replaced.
Speaking of leaks, if your hot water tank is leaking, you need a new one.
Leaks can damage your home in the area around the tank and can keep you from having enough hot water, not to mention the increased water bills.
This is a sure sign you need a new hot water system.
Do you hear rumbling or other noises coming from your hot water system?
It could mean you have a lot of build up and hardened sediment in your tank, which interferes with water heating and can lead to holes and cracks in the tank.
If this is happening, it’s time to replace your tank.
We are as equally happy to repair and maintain any hot water system in Coffs Harbour as we are to supply and install new ones.
