Tankless Water Heater Replacement in Lutherville-Timonium, Baltimore, Ellicott City, MD, and the Surrounding Areas
4 Signs You Need a Tankless Water Heater Replacement
Tankless water heater replacement in Lutherville-Timonium, Baltimore, Ellicott City, MD, and the surrounding areas is always foretold by a series of signs which can clearly indicate you need a new unit. But only if you pay attention!
1. Colder Showers
Have you been taking warm showers rather than hot showers lately? If the temperature of the water doesn’t reach the same degree you were once used to, that’s because the unit is failing. It’s getting too old to function properly and you need to replace it.
2. You Can Hear Strange Noises
You turn on the water and start to hear some strange noises. Of course, it could be Pennywise the clown from It coming through the pipes, but on a more realistic note, your water heater could be failing. We know, not nearly as entertaining, but equally annoying. Strange noises coming from the pipes or from the tankless heater itself can mean that the unit is very old and cannot cope with the pressure of heating the water anymore. Just don’t go into the sewers.
3. Rusty Water Means a Water Heater Replacement
This is one of the most obvious signs that something is wrong with your unit. Turning the tap on and seeing rusty water flowing through can mean that the parts inside of the system are now so old that they are actually corroding. The rust produced on them is coming in through the water, contaminating it.
Needless to say, please don’t touch or use the water. Call us immediately to handle the issue!
4. The Water Tastes or Smells Funny
‘Funny’ can mean different things. Sometimes the water has a distinct metallic smell and taste. Other times you get the aroma of rotten egg coming through which makes washing your dishes even more enjoyable of an activity. Both are signs you now need to replace the water heater.
Of course, the age of your unit is the number one reason why you should replace it. But if you feel or notice any of the other symptoms we have described above, please do not be late in calling us!
