Every home needs a hot water system that runs efficiently so your energy costs don’t become too expensive. There are various ways to tell when your hot water system needs replacement, and below we’ve listed some of the warning signs that could be an indication of a larger problem:

Leaks in the tank – sediment and rust can cause water leaks to occur from various places in your tank.

Unusual noises – if your system is making banging, rumbling or popping noises, it could be an indication that there is sediment built up in the tank.

The water isn’t hot enoughif your hot water is only warm or if you find that you need to run the tap for a while before the water reaches the desired temperature, this means your system is not operating as efficiently as it should be.

If your system is more than 10 years old – it may also be time to have it inspected to see if it performing optimally.

No hot water upstairs – this is a fairly common issue that can occur in two-storey houses and there can be a variety of reasons why it is occurring.

No hot water in your shower – another very common issue and there can be some quick fixes you can try yourself like checking the Thermostat or circuit breaker before calling us to help.
