Warning Signs of Water Heater Failure

Water heaters typically don't stop working all of a sudden. There are usually indications that a water heater is experiencing problems long before it goes out. Early detection can prevent costly repairs and premature replacement.

Signs Your Water Heater Needs To Be Repaired or Replaced:

  • Fluctuating water heat
  • Low hot water pressure
  • Rusty water
  • Metallic taste
  • Leaking
  • Unusual sounds
  • Old age

All of the above are warning signs that problems likely exist in your water heater. If you notice any of these indicators, you need to call in professional help. To minimize the risk of having to replace your water heater, contact us as soon as you notice problems. In some cases, the system will be beyond repair and you will need a new system installed. Either way, we can provide exactly what you need.

Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

Knowing when it’s time to stop scheduling repairs for your water heater and finally call in a plumber to install a new one can be a difficult decision to make. It’s almost always cheaper to repair the unit, at least in the short term. However, if you keep simply kicking the project down the road without considering all possible options, your water heater can quickly become a money sink that continues to drain your wallet.

Important questions to ask yourself when you’re debating between a repair and a replacement water heater include:

  • How old is your water heater? Unfortunately, water heaters aren’t built to last forever. Sediment build-up, technological advancements, and general wear and tear all combine to make your current unit outdated at a certain point. The typical water heater lasts around 10 years, while a tankless water heater can last 20+. If your system is getting up there in age, it’s probably time to talk with your plumber about replacing it.
  • How often are you scheduling repairs, and how much do they cost? The general rule for water heater repairs is if the repair costs at least half the price of the unit itself, it’s best to replace it. That’s not the only time you should consider a replacement though – if you consistently have to schedule multiple repairs per year, odds are your system is past due for an upgrade.
  • Have your water bills started to increase? As your water heater becomes less efficient at heating water in your home, your water and energy bills will start to increase. Not only do you need to run the water longer to get it to the desired temperature, but your water heater will also need to work harder to get it there. Sometimes this is caused by a simple issue that can be quickly repaired, but other times it’s a signal that your water heater is past due for a replacement.

Consider A Tankless Water Heater

A popular replacement option among Sacramento County home and business owners today is a tankless water heater. In contrast to traditional water heaters that store hot water in a tank that is constantly heated, tankless systems heat water on-demand, right when you want it.

Tankless Water Heater Benefits Include:

  • Up to 40% energy savings
  • Endless hot water supply
  • More space
  • Longer lifespan
  • Reduced carbon footprint

Depending on the size and needs of your family, a tankless water heater may be a good option for you to consider installing in your home or business. Our Rancho Cordova water heater services experts will work with you to help you determine if a tankless system is right for you.

We are experts in all types and sizes of water heaters and we can repair them, install them, and service them. Call Colbabe Brothers Plumbing at (916) 915-0416 today to schedule an appointment for Rancho Cordova water heater services.
