Signs Your Water Heater Needs To Be Replaced Include:

Your water heater is making strange noises including popping, screeching, crackling, and sizzling. For more information on strange noises coming from your water heater, visit our What to Do if You Have a Noisy Water Heater blog post.
No Longer Heating Water
Your water heater is no longer doing its primary job of heating up your household water. Hot water is a household necessity for hot showers, doing the dishes, laundry, and many more household activities. A water heater no longer heating can be caused by many different factors including a broken heating element, too small of a water heater tank for your square footage, and a misadjusted thermostat.
Water heaters can begin leaking for a couple of reasons including an expansion of the metal in the tank and a faulty connection to the tank. A leak can potentially be a serious issue and should not be ignored. Not only can a leak ruin your carpet and destroy belongings but it can also create hazardous mold.
