Norfolk Water Heater Replacement Services
If your Norfolk home or business has been using the same water heater for over 10 years, you are going to need to start thinking about replacing it since it’s only a matter of time before the rusted, corroded tank springs a leak, causing thousands of dollars’ worth in water damage. Obviously, this is the worst-case scenario, but there are still a number of undesirable things that can happen if you aren’t proactive about replacing your home or business’s water heater.
One of the biggest nuisances is the climbing electric bills that come with an obsolete water heater. These appliances develop buildup on the bottom of their tanks, creating a layer of sediment that makes them less effective over time. As a result, your electric bill will increase as the tank works harder and harder to keep your water hot. Not only will you incur bigger expenses on for electricity every month, you are wasting your money on patchwork solutions if you keep springing for repairs.
It is also possible that you start seeing rust-colored water coming out of the taps whenever you use hot water. Rusty water is, of course, unsanitary and a clear sign that you need to replace your water heater.

Signs Your Water Heater is About to Fail
Since water heaters typically only last for about 10 years, the biggest predictor of whether or not they’ll be working much longer is their age. Sometimes, when you have been diligent about providing it with preventative maintenance, it can exceed this projected life expectancy, but it’s still worth investing in a replacement now than having to pay for one on top of water damage remediation.
If you discover rust water coming from your water heater and it only comes from the hot side piping, this is a sign that your water heater is rusting away, and it won’t be long before it springs a leak. If there is no rusty water but the appliance is making a lot of noise and rumbling, this means that there is sediment built up in the bottom and it has lost a great deal of efficiency.
Whenever you notice water around the water heater, call us immediately because it invariably means serious trouble.
