Here are some common signs you need hot water heater replacement and installation or repair services in your Chicago North Shore or Chicago Northwest suburban home.

Your water heater is old

Water heaters are heavily used appliances, therefore they receive a significant amount of wear and tear over the years. On average, water heaters last about 10 to 15 years. Once water heaters reach this age, they are more prone to breaking down. We recommend replacing your water heater system before it breaks down completely, which can cause significant damage if there’s a leak.


Speaking of leaks, older hot water heaters are prone to leaking. If you notice a pool of water, or water is running from the tank to the floor drain, this is a likely sign that you’ll need to contact a plumber to install a new water heater. Call a plumbing technician at the first sign of a water heater leak. Water heaters typically leak from the drain valve, expansion tank, TPR valve, cold water valve or the pipe connections.

Knocking noises

Knocking or popping noises are signs your water heater likely needs repairs or replacement from a professional plumber.

If there is standing water around the hot water tank, this could indicate a major leak and the need for a new heater. A knocking sound typically occurs when an excess of mineral deposits or sediment gathers at the bottom of the tank, which is also known as scale. Because of a reduced volume of water in the tank because of the scale, it can force steam bubbles to rise, making a knocking or popping noise.

Decreased efficiency

Water heaters lose efficiency over time. If you notice that your water is turning cold halfway through your shower, it could be an indication that it’s time to replace your unit.

Frequent repairs

If you’re frequently repairing your hot water heater, this is a tell-tale sign that you need water heater installation services from Ravinia Plumbing.
