Your water heater is what provides hot water to all of the appliances in your home that you use daily. Doing a load of laundry, washing the dishes or taking a nice warm shower all happens thanks to the workings of your water heater.

Unless you’re out of your home for an extended period of days, you use water from your water heater every day. If you’re doing any cooking, cleaning, bathing or space heating, your water heater is being used. Your heater should last anywhere from 10-15 years as long as regular maintenance is being performed on your system.
Regular maintenance is the number one way to keep your water heater in shape. However, even with the regular maintenance happening, your unit is bound to eventually wear out, and you’ll need to get it replaced. Some signs that you need to replace your water heater are:

You must be able to spot the signs of the common water heater repairs to know when to call the professionals for help. Some common water heater repairs are:
The first way you can identify that something may be wrong with your water heater is if you’re not receiving any hot water at all. It’s common for your water heater to run out of hot water when being used simultaneously in different areas of the house, or if a lot is being used all at once. If your water is not coming out hot from the beginning, you should call the professionals to come to check it out.
Leaks may occur as a result of loose connections or corrosion in your tank. Contaminants found in your water can lead to corrosion of your tank, which creates small cracks where leaks happen. This can be fixed by getting your connections tightened or your tank sealed and fixed by a plumbing professional.
If you’re experiencing any dirty or smelly water coming from your heater, this is a sure sign that something isn’t right. If your water is coming out in a dirty rust color, you could be experiencing corrosion inside of your tank. The only way to solve this problem is by getting your system replaced.
Bad-smelling water could mean that bacteria has made its way into your heater. You can fight this by flushing your tank or boiling the water at its highest temperature to try and kill the bacteria. If that doesn’t work, you can try cleaning it out with chlorine bleach. If all those options fail, it could be best to get it replaced.
