Are YOU in HOT WATER?
Often times homeowners aren't aware that a Hot Water Heater is about to fail. Most often you are met with water running out from under your foundation, or garage!
While you can't be sure when failure will occur, there ARE signs you can keep an eye out for.
Knowing the age of your water heater is one way, which can be located by looking at the manufacture sticker on the upper portion of the water heater.
Example if the Serial number is F051052638, the "F" represents the month, since "F' is the sixth letter of the alphabet it was manufactured in the month of June.
The next two numbers represent the year. Since 05 are the two numbers following the "F" this means the hot water heater was built in 2005.
A good rule of thumb: Most hot water heaters over 10 years old have lived a useful life and should be considered for replacement.
