Long Island has a rich history dating back hundreds of years. Many of the homes on Long Island are old and require a lot of upkeep. You probably already know how often you need to repaint your siding, change out the filter on your furnace, clean out your drain pipes and re-tile your roof. There are some maintenance projects in a home that do not come up every year or even every few years. You might be less familiar with these kinds of home upkeep. One of the items in your home that is easy to forget about is your water heater.
When your Long Island water heater installation is working correctly, you do not even think about it. You simply turn on the faucet and get the hot water you expect. However, every 10 or 15 years, you will need to replace your water heater. If it has been that long since you had a water heater installed, here are some signs to be aware of that your water heater is on its last legs.
If you notice rust in your water, especially when you are using the hot water, that is a sign that the inside of your water tank may be starting to rust. If you hear your water tank making banging noises or rumbling sounds, this is another sign that sediment has built up inside the tank, and it is starting to deteriorate. It is important not to ignore these signs because a water heater can crack and let water leak out if you do not notice that it is time to replace your water heater.
A good idea is to replace your water heater before it leaks. So if you know it is over ten years old, you should start to plan for a replacement.
