Signs Your Water Heater May Need Repair

With proper maintenance, most gas and electric water heaters last up to 12 years, with tankless models often lasting 20 years or more. As the heater ages, you may start to see signs it needs to be repaired or replaced.

  • Fluctuation in water temperature
  • Reduced hot water pressure
  • Puddles near or under the water heater
  • Cloudy, rusty, and/or foul-smelling water
  • Strange noises
  • Lukewarm water
  • Hot water runs out faster than usual

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters provide a constant supply of hot water, and heat the water directly without the use of a water storage tank. When the hot water tap is turned on, cold water travels through a pipe into the tankless unit, where either a gas burner or an electric element heats the water.

More energy-efficient than traditional tank heaters, smaller in size and boasting a longer lifespan, typically up to 20 years. They can be installed closer to the point of use, which reduces heat loss in pipes.

Speak with a plumbing expert from Indoor Air Quality Medics and find out if a tankless water heater is the right solution for your home and family.
