WHEN SHOULD WE REPAIR YOUR WATER HEATER?
Although water heaters can last several years, nothing lasts forever. A conventional water heater type tank lasts on average seven to ten years, while some hot water tankless heaters can last more than ten years.
Sometimes replacement may be the better option, though. You will want to consider completely removing and replacing your water heater if it causes you problems and is close to the end of its lifetime. The costs of maintaining and operating this old water heater can be higher than the repair costs. New models will save you more resources and keep you in the long term.
COMMON PROBLEMS WITH OLD WATER HEATERS
Rusting is a problem that is pretty common in water heaters. Hard water causes rust. Rust may have taken root inside the tank if you see rust in the water inlet or the pressure-relieve valve on the radiator. If so, replacing the tank as soon as possible is the only solution. Once rust makes an appearance, it means your water heater may be beyond salvage.
The noise from the tank is another clear sign of a failing water heater. Popcorn sounds may come from your tank. Rust sediment starts to build as the heater gets older, and rumbling sounds can get even louder as the tank heats up. The heating element starts to burn this sediment off as sediments build up in a tank and cause weird noise

Our technicians will carefully check that the appliance is fully secured and that there are no dangerous leaks, which can be very harmful. If you’re using a gas-powered water heater, you’ll need to make Sure It’s Properly Ventilated to Avoid Carbon Dioxide Poisoning.
