Proper maintenance and timely repairs help keep your water heater running smoothly and efficiently for a long time. However, like any other appliance in your home, there will come a time when replacement is the better option.

Need a little nudge in the right direction? JNR Plumbing will highlight signs that a water heater replacement is finally due.

Age of the Water Heater

The average lifespan of a tank water heater is 8 to 12 years, while a tankless water heater lasts up to 20 years. If your water heater reaches this age or beyond and is experiencing any of the issues listed below, it’s probably time to start shopping for a new one.

Water Temperature Issues

It’s valid for homeowners to be alarmed when the water heater no longer heats water as well as it used to. This might be due to a malfunctioning heating element, a worn-out thermostat, or a buildup of sediment in the tank. While water temperature fluctuations can often be solved with water heater repair in Wilton, CT, if the problem persists even after multiple attempts at fixing it, then replacement is the more sensible solution.

Unusual Noises

Any loud banging, rumbling, or hissing noises from your water heater are a cause for concern. These sounds are produced when sediment accumulates at the bottom of the tank and when pressure builds up inside it. These noises are indicative of a failing unit and can also be dangerous if not addressed promptly.

Increased Utility Bills

As the water heater ages, its efficiency lowers, and it needs more electricity or gas to heat water. A sudden hike in your utility bills over the past few months might signal that you need to invest in a new and more energy-efficient unit.

Consult a trusted water heater installation company to help you find the most suitable replacement for your home.


Corrosion compromises the integrity of the walls of the water heater tank, weakening them to a point where they can no longer contain pressure. When your system shows signs of corrosion, such as discolored water and a metallic taste, replacement would be the only viable solution to restoring hot water service in your home.
