Is it Time to Send Your Water Heater into Retirement?
Do you feel like you’re taking the ice bucket challenge every time you turn on the shower? If so, your water heater is likely crying out for help, pleading with you to send it into retirement already! Tomasso Bros can help you pick its replacement – we proudly install reliable, high-efficiency water heaters from A.O. Smith and Rheem that provide a virtually endless supply of hot water. Here are some signs it’s time to get one of your own:
- There’s virtually no hot water, and it’s gotten so bad that everyone in your home competes to wake up the earliest just to salvage a lukewarm shower. If there’s little to no hot water, it could be due to sediment buildup at the bottom of the tank, effectively insulating the heat from the water.
- There’s water under and around your tank. This could indicate a corroded tank, condensation, a leak, or loose valves, among other concerns, so contact us right away, as even small amounts of water can foster mold and mildew.
- Your water heater is clanging, banging, hissing and humming (and it’s giving you a headache!). These sounds are often caused by steam bubbles escaping the mineral deposits at the bottom of the tank.
- Your water heater is aging. Typically, water heaters last 10 or 15 years, so replace yours before something goes wrong.
If your water heater is exhibiting any of these signs, let Tomasso Bros install a new, high-efficiency water heater in its place. You’ll no longer feel ice water is raining down on your head every time you shower, and there’ll be an abundance of hot water for everyone’s showers, laundry and more. Contact us today.
