When should I get my water heater checked out?

It’s a good idea to have your water heater checked out by a professional plumber at least once a year to ensure that it is functioning properly and efficiently. However, there are also some specific signs that indicate that your water heater may need to be checked out sooner. Here are some common signs that you should have your water heater checked out:

  • No hot water or insufficient hot water: If you are experiencing a lack of hot water or water that is not hot enough, it may be time to have your water heater checked out.
  • Strange noises: If you hear strange noises coming from your water heater, such as popping or banging, it may indicate that there is sediment buildup or other issues.
  • Leaks or moisture: If you notice leaks or moisture around your water heater, it may be a sign of a leak or other issue.
  • Age: Water heaters typically last between 8 and 12 years. If your water heater is older than this, it may be time to have it checked out or replaced.
  • High energy bills: If your energy bills have been increasing without explanation, it may indicate that your water heater is not functioning efficiently and needs to be checked out.

At KBI Plumbing Sewer and Drain, we offer water heater inspection and maintenance services to help ensure that your water heater is functioning properly and efficiently. Contact us today to schedule an appointment and have your water heater checked out.
