If you’re hearing a gurgling or banging from your noisy water heater, it may need your attention. While quick fixes can stop the noise, it’s probably time for a new water heater.
Sediment that could be resting at the bottom of your water heater may be causing it to run inefficiently. This will increase your water heating bill and reduce the amount of hot water available to you. More importantly, the build up of sediment can increase the rate of deterioration. After too much deterioration, the tank can leak and cause costly damage to your home.
Solutions: Some manufacturers recommend flushing your tank to
get the sediment out. This does involve hot water and gas, so we suggest working with a professional. Depending on the age of the water heater, it might make sense to look at a new tank. If your tank is eight to 11 years old, you may want to consider an upgrade.
If you need a new water heater, we carry a wide selection of brands and sizes of traditional equipment. We also sell and install tankless water heaters which are small in size, but big in benefits.
Questions to ask before replacing your hot water tank:
- Has the current hot water tank’s size been adequate for your household?
- Have your needs for hot water increased – growing family, more showers, more laundry?
- How old is your water heater?
Answering these questions can help determine the right water heater for your needs. Isaac will expertly install what works best for you and your home.
