When is it time for a hot water system replacement?

Our hot water systems are the unsung heroes of our homes, providing us with plenty of relaxing steaming hot water all throughout the year. Being that they’re mostly out of sight, we often forget to check on their overall health and condition. However, you should always be taking note of how your system is performing so that you know the best time for that hot water system replacement job. Not only could you end up saving yourself some money in the long run, but you won’t have to put up with your morning shower going cold on you any longer. This blog from Fosters Plumbing provides a few key signs to look out for that may indicate that your hot water system just isn’t up to the task anymore. 

How long do hot water systems last?

If your hot water system is over 10 years old, it’s probably time to start thinking about a replacement, as the effectiveness of your system will deteriorate. You may begin to notice more regular problems or an increase in your water bills. By replacing your old system you’ll be able to resolve these problems and make sure you have an energy-efficient system in place for your home.

Why you should replace your hot water system on the Gold Coast 

One of the reasons that your hot water system may need replacing is when your system can’t keep up with the hot water needs of your household. In these situations, it’s always best to get a professional in to look at the system and ask about some suitable replacements for your home. A new hot water system replacement can help to match these demands so that the whole household can enjoy the water and not have to worry about stepping into an icy cold shower.

As your hot water system gets older you can also start to notice strange noises or a slight discolouration of the water when it’s being used. These are both telltale signs that you should be thinking about replacing your hot water system. Sizzling or slight hissing sounds are sometimes an indicator that there’s a faulty relief valve, or a build-up of sediment in the system. Likewise, the discolouration of water can also be a result of a build-up of sediment, or may be due to corrosion. 

If you spot a leak in the hot water system, this is a significant reason why you should replace your hot water system on the Gold Coast. The leak may be small but if left untreated over time it can cause damage to your home, or even create health concerns for those in your household. It’s always best to call the experts at Fosters Plumbing as we can help diagnose the issue, and replace your hot water system in an efficient manner.
