Hand attaches hose to an old water heater

Especially for a homeowner in a colder state like New Hampshire, having a water heater installed is paramount! Ease of access to warm water helps with a ton of everyday tasks throughout the house. However, just like most household appliances and systems, water heaters don’t last forever. There comes a time when their effectiveness is too little to warrant keeping them around – not to mention that they could cost you more money the older they get! Replacing your water heater with a more modern model is a great way to ensure that you still get the best from your warm water, but it leaves a burning question: What do you do with the older model? Removing it yourself can be incredibly dangerous and a serious chore, but there’s a solution that can eliminate both issues. When you work with the junk removal professionals at Trash Bandits, your old water heater will be a distant memory in a short window of time!

How Do I Know When To Dispose Of A Water Heater?

As is the case with many household appliances, you’ll need to pay careful attention to the symptoms of a water heater past its prime. Especially since your water heater is likely tucked off in a corner of your home, the most telling signs may not be the easiest to spot! We’ll save you the guesswork of trying to diagnose a problem – if you’ve noticed any of the following signs, it may be time to upgrade your water heater and get the old one professionally removed.

 

  • Consider Its Lifespan: You should have a good idea as to when your water heater was installed! Looking at the industry averages for its lifespan should be a good indicator of how much time your unit has left. Water heaters generally last from 6-12 years on average – if yours is within that window, you may need to think about disposing of it!
  • Discolored Hot Water: Your hot water and cold water should be indiscernible from each other in terms of color. Healthy water heaters should have clear hot water. Your unit could be compromised if that color changes to a reddish-brown! It’s usually a sign of rust infiltrating your unit, which is one of the most telling signs that your unit needs to go.
  • Lack Of Warm Water: Usually, a lack of warm water in your heater is something that can be repaired. However, when it becomes a repeated problem even after getting professional repairs, it’s likely a sign that your water heater’s effectiveness has run out. 

If your water heater shows any of these signs, don’t make your everyday tasks harder. Once you’ve secured your upgrade, contact Trash Bandits to dispose of the old unit easily!
