Depending on when your water heater was originally installed, and any new building codes now required for compliance, your mounting, hoses, airflow system, and drainage pan might need upgrading or replacement, too. A typical tank-type water heater has a lifespan of around 10-15 years, so if yours is within this age range, it might be worth it to fork over the costs of replacing the heater instead of continually fixing problems as they occur with age. You might need just a simple, low-cost repair, like changing anode rods if you get anodized water, or replacing a shutoff valve if it is leaking. When your brand-new gas control valve has gone bad, replacing it is often a more effective, less expensive option than repairing it. If you notice a problem with your water heater, shut it down and contact our certified plumbers today for any plumbing or leakage issues.
