When to put down the old steel beast?

Before it goes wild of course!

How old do you think your water heater is?

Many people do not know. We often guess… “I think it is between 12-13 years maybe?”

Truth is, most of us don’t know the exact age of our water heater off the top of our heads and tend to gauge on our answer, which can have dire consequences.

Let’s face it: time flies and before we know it, a decade has gone by and all we really know is nothing is wrong with our water heater… yet.

But that day will come when your water heater begins to sound as though it’s making you popcorn for movie night. That day will come when you strut down those basement steps excited to take a blissful walk down memory lane only to find your big steel beast has now become a vengeful monster that‘s anointed your basement floor with its water-leaking wrath, ruining countless boxes of your once-loved Beanie Babies from the 90s, but more importantly the archived photos and videos of your truly beloveds.

When is it time to let your water heater go?

The smart answer is before that happens and there’s more to that:

By replacing your water heater in advance before it goes wild, you will avoid having to make an emergency replacement which can cost you time and energy for on the spot emergency assistance.

You will also be able to shop around for an efficient unit that qualifies for incentives and rebates if you decide to be proactive in a replacement.
