In our modern world, it’s impossible to function without a water heater. Keeping your house clean would become next to impossible, as heat is known to kill copious amounts of bacteria. What’s more, without heat, you probably couldn’t bring yourself to take your nightly shower.


It’s for all of these reasons, it’s crucial to know when it’s time for water heater replacement; once your hot water is gone, life sort of falls apart until you get it fixed. Plumbing work, heating work, and water pipe maintenance with P&D Mechanical will keep your water as warm as can be so you never even reach that point.


But how do you know when it’s time to call us for water heater replacement? While the factors below aren’t hard-and-fast indicators that you’ll need water heater replacement soon, they’re usually solid signs you should give us a call.

Is Your Water Heater Old?

As with all machinery, water heaters do reach a point where they just get too old to function properly. With an older model, so many parts might be failing that it just becomes more economical in the long run to opt for water heater replacement altogether.


Generally, the age of your water heater will be listed on the rating plate, sometimes within the model’s serial number; it all depends on the brand. What also depends on the brand is the age at which you’ll need replacement, so call P&D mechanical if you’ve got questions.

Is Your Water Heater Noisy?

Over time, sediment and minerals build up at the bottom of your water heater—hence the excess noise you hear. Constant reheating and cooling means that this sediment will harden. It then becomes harder for your water heater to do its job efficiently; there’s also an increased likelihood of the tank cracking from the excess heat it must endure. Both of these things can mean costly repairs further down the line, as well as moisture damage to your home. Opting for water heater replacement before disaster happens saves you both money and stress.
