The ability to have warm, clean water piped directly into your home is a great convenience that many parts of the world are unable to enjoy. With a water heater in your home, you can clean your dishes, take a relaxing shower or complete hundreds of other tasks. When your water heater starts to fail, it can be a rough awakening, especially if your water heater lets you know of its demise with a suddenly cold shower. Water heaters don’t last forever, so look out for these signs to determine if a water heater installation is in your near future.
Things you notice physically can be the best indications of a water heater installation in your future. For example, you might notice that your water heater isn’t working as well as it once did and that your water is colder in general. You also might notice that your water has a metallic taste to it. You might hear pops, creaks, or other odd noises coming from your water heater. Leaks might be present. These signs are all one of your five senses that you use on a daily basis, and can be warning signs of an eminent water heater installation.
Another area you can check for red flags of new water heater installation is in your wallet. Are you paying more in utilities than you used to? Are the repairs becoming more frequent and expensive?
These are just some of the signs that a water heater installation is in your near future. If that is your situation, please let us know at South End Plumbing.
