Your hot water system isn’t something that you replace every other day. These appliances can be pricey, but they also last for over a decade. This fact makes it very necessary for you to conduct a certain amount of research and make a prudent choice while replacing your hot water system.
We at Australia Wide Plumbing & Electrical have seen that many property owners aren’t very sure about the frequency at which they need to replace the systems in their homes. As mentioned earlier, this system can easily last for over 10 years. However, it is also a very subjective aspect, and tough to predict when the system would need a change, without looking at it.
Some Aspects to Keep in View
Various factors come into play when it comes to the condition of your hot water system. How long it lasts and functions efficiently will depend on factors such as:
- The brand and quality of the appliance
- Type of hot water system you have chosen
- The duration for which it has been used
- Whether you have maintained the system regularly
- The quality of water in your area
All of these factors have critical roles to play when it comes to hot water systems, their condition, and the frequency at which they would require replacement. It is always a good idea to invest in an excellent quality system within your budget. If you can push your budget a little further and invest in a top model, advanced hot water system, it can prove to be energy-efficient and will have a longer lifespan as well.
There are many different reasons why hot water systems may malfunction or stop working entirely. However, the most common is corrosion in the system’s tank. If there is hard water in your neighbourhood, it affects the functioning as well as the lifespan of the appliance, which means you would have to replace it much sooner than expected.
Indicators That You Need To Replace Your Hot Water System
It is best to hire the services of an expert plumber to inspect the system and recommend whether replacement is necessary. However, there are certain signs that you can look out for to determine whether the appliance requires to be changed, such as:
- You find brownish, cloudy or murky water coming out of the pipes; rust buildup causes this problem
- The water temperature isn’t up to the mark
- The system doesn’t heat water consistently
- No water comes out of the hot water system at all
- The system makes banging or rattling sounds; sedimentation and debris accumulation in the tank causes this problem
