Water Heaters From Parker Oil & Propane

Unlike air conditioning and heating systems, water heaters are used all year long. This is why it’s important to keep an eye on the condition of your water heater to avoid malfunctions or breakdowns that interrupt the flow of hot water to your various plumbing fixtures. The average lifespan of a water heater is 10 to 15 years, and if your water heater is already 10 years or older, it may be time to consider replacing it before it fails.

If you’re unsure of you water heater’s age, then keep an eye out for any indications that there may be a problem developing. Here’s what to look out for:

  • Not Enough Hot Water: Has there been a noticeable decrease in the production of hot water by your system? If this occurs, it’s likely due to the buildup of mineral deposits at the bottom of the tank, which insulated the water from the heat. This will cause your water heater to work harder, using more energy and experiencing more wear and tear that can result in a break down or leak.

  • Noisy Operation: Mineral deposits inside the tank can cause loud noises to emanate from the tank itself during operation.

  • Leaking Tank: A clear indication that your tank needs to be replaced is a leaking tank. For those who keep a close eye on their water heater, it won’t be easy to miss, as puddles of water will form under the tank. Leaks can cause basement flooding, and damage to your home and property.
