We Service & Install Quality Water Heaters in Naperville & Its Surrounding Areas
Did you know that the average lifespan of a gas water heater is around 8-12 years? A lot of factors can influence where yours falls on this spectrum, like the location of the unit, it’s design, the quality of the original installation, your water quality, and more, but if it’s been 10 years since you’ve last updated, you may be due (or even overdue) for a replacement.
Fortunately for homeowners throughout Naperville, Aurora, and the rest of our service area, our team of licensed and insured experts offers both repair and replacement services, ensuring your water heater system is equipped to run strong for the long haul.
Is My Water Heater on Its Last Leg?
What are the most common signs that your water heater may be about to quit on you?
- Your water isn’t heating up as quickly. If you’re running your faucet for what seems like forever before your water finally starts heating up, this is a good sign that your water heater isn’t able to keep up with your needs like it used to.
- You run out of hot water much faster than normal. This may mean that you have sediment buildup in your tank or that there’s something broken in your unit.
- You don’t have any hot water at all. The main job of your water heater is to heat your water, so if it isn’t doing this, then there’s something amiss – and getting some professional insight should be a priority.
- Your water gets too hot. Sometimes the water heats too slow (or not at all), but the opposite problem can be indicative of issues, too. This is a clear sign that something’s malfunctioning and the unit should be looked at by a pro.
- Your water heater is making strange clunking noises. Noises from your tank mean that sediment is building up, which isn’t good for your system and could lead to leaks if the tank becomes damaged.
- Your water is discolored. Sometimes discoloration in your water can mean your pipes are rusted, but if you run only the hot water side and this problem is still present, your water heater is probably to blame (and there’s likely corrosion in the tank).
- There’s water surrounding your tank. This usually means a leak has already occurred, and you’ll want to get a plumber in as soon as possible to avoid even more damage to your home.
- You’re noticing foul odors. As sediment builds up and parts of your water heater break down, the bacteria inside will thrive and you may notice some foul (rotten egg-like) odors coming from the tank.
- It’s been a decade. If it’s been a decade since you’ve had your water heater installed, then it’s probably time for an upgrade. Even if your current one seems to be working fine, it probably won’t be for much longer, and it’s best to avoid issues before they get worse (and cause damage throughout your home).

Looking to Have a Powered Anode Rod Installed?
A powered anode rod is a device that sits inside of your water heater’s tank and sends out electrical pulses to repel those corrosive materials that can build up in your water (and that are notorious for breaking down the metal sides of your tank). Installing one will extend the life of your tank significantly, and the rods themselves last quite awhile, too. If you’re ready to have one installed, give us a holler, and we can help you out!
Interested in a Tankless Water Heater?
Sick of dealing with a big clunky tank? Then, a tankless water heater may be a better option for you. These have countless advantages, like energy savings, endless hot water, taking up less space, and more. That said, they can have a hefty price tag, too, so it’s an investment you’ll want to think through thoroughly.
