Signs Your Hot Water Heater Needs a Service
It's easy to take your water heater for granted—until something goes wrong. Picture this: You step into your shower, expecting a rush of soothing hot water, but instead, you're met with a chilling surprise.

These are moments when you realize just how essential your water heater is to your daily comfort and convenience. At these times, the trusted experts at PowerHouse Home Services can step in to restore your peace of mind.
Here are a few signs that your water heater might need servicing:
- Insufficient hot water
- Banging, popping sounds coming from your unit
- Water leaking from the base of your unit or supply lines
- Discolored/unpleasant odors in the water
- Water is too hot or takes a long time to heat up
If you notice any of these signs, don't hesitate to contact us for help. We can send a knowledgeable technician immediately to evaluate the situation and take the appropriate steps to fix it.
When Should You Replace Your Water Heater?
On average, water heaters last around 10 years with proper maintenance. If your water heater is approaching or past its expected lifespan, it may be time to consider a replacement.
Factors to consider when deciding if it's time for a new water heater installation include:
- Frequent repairs: A replacement may be more cost-effective in the long run if your water heater requires frequent and costly repairs.
- Inefficiency: Older water heaters may become less energy-efficient over time, leading to higher utility bills.
- Lack of hot water: If your water heater consistently fails to provide enough hot water, it may be time for an upgrade.
- Rust or corrosion: Extensive rust or corrosion on the tank is a sign of deterioration and may warrant a replacement.
- Safety concerns: Water heaters that exhibit safety issues, such as gas leaks or carbon monoxide emissions, should be replaced immediately.
