When is it Time to Install a New Water Heater?
At a certain point, it becomes far more cost-effective to replace your old water heater rather than pushing that decision down the road by getting it repaired. No water heater lasts forever, and knowing when to make the call to get a new unit can end up saving you hundreds of dollars in the long run. Some of the key signs to look out for include:
- Rust-colored water: If the water coming out of your home's pipes is an unusual rust color, there's a good chance that your water heater has started to rust on the inside. Not only is this water unhealthy to drink, it will also eventually start leaking.
- Hot water running out: As your water starts to reach the end of its life, it will become less efficient at heating water. This will lead to suddenly freezing showers, lukewarm bathtubs, and more.
- Strange noises coming from the tank: Sediment buildup in water heaters can cause rumbling and banging noises in the unit. Not only will this affect its ability to produce hot water efficiently, it can also lead to cracks in the tank that can turn into serious leaks.

Heater Repair vs. Heater Replacement
When your heater stops working, it could mean a variety of different things have gone wrong. Trying to fix your heater yourself can be dangerous and, in the end, fail to fix the problem! Don’t try to DIY. Call DG Heating & Air Conditioning to get an expert team of HVAC technicians on your side. We can assess the situation and determine whether repairs will do the trick or if replacing your heater with a newer, more efficient system would be more cost effective.
Reasons to consider installing a new heater include:
You’ve had to call for repairs too many times
The necessary repairs would cost more than 50% of the cost of replacement
Your current heater is too small or too large for your home
Your current heater is over 10 years old
