Signs it’s time to upgrade your hot water heater

  • On average a storage hot water system will last around 10 years so if yours is needing repairs at around this age you could be better off replacing the unit rather than paying for repairs. Instant hot water systems will last longer, often up to 20 years.
  • Leaking tank - replacing a storage tank which has begun to corrode or has sprung a leak can be costly depending on the model and the age of the unit (whether replacement parts are easily sourced). With the price of hot water units reducing every year it could prove to be more cost effective to opt for a replacement system over a new tank.
  • Brown or discoloured water can indicate that the tank has started to corrode, there is build-up of sediment in the tank, or you have a rust issue in the water pipes. All are problems that need to be fully investigated by your plumber o ensure you can make informed decisions regarding the upgrade or repair.
  • Banging, popping, crackling, or other noises coming from your hot water unit can signify larger problems are brewing.
  • Repeated repairs - if you’re calling your plumber for repairs often you may end up paying more in repair bills than it would cost to install a new unit. Before you say yes to yet another repair, ask your plumber what a hot water system replacement cost would be, you might be surprised.
