Signs a Water Heater Should Be Replaced

The water heater is what allows you to take hot showers and wash dishes using warm water. However, like any other component in your home, it has a limited life span. What are some signs that it will need to be replaced?

There Is Water Leaking Out of It

If you notice that there is condensation on the outside of your water heater, it could be a sign that is about to stop working. Water that is dripping from or pooling at the bottom of the boiler is another sign that it should be replaced soon.

You can call or go online to contact Black Lion Heating & Air Conditioning in Seattle to have your water heater serviced or replaced. You can choose from traditional tanks or tankless products if you need to have a new one installed in your home. We can also service other heating components at the time of your appointment.

Water Is Too Hot or Too Cold

In some cases, water that is too hot can be the sign of a malfunctioning water heater. Specifically, it could be an indication that there is an issue with the thermostat used to make sure water coming out of the faucet is at the right temperature. If the water in your home or office is always hot or always cold, it may be in your best interest to simply replace the entire unit.

Your Water Heater Is Old

A water heater is designed to last for about a decade assuming that it is taken care of. You can check the bill of sale or any notations on the tank itself to determine when your current water heater was installed. Generally speaking, replacing an older unit is more economical than trying to repair it.

In addition to working on water heaters, we can also repair or service air conditioners and other cooling components in a home or office. We offer electrical services to make your home safer both inside and out as well. Call Black Lion Heating & Air Conditioning today to learn more.
