How Long Do Residential Water Heaters Last?
It would be a dream come true if the water heater in your home lasted as long as your home’s lifetime, but this scenario is a work of fiction. You can hire Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Fort McMurray to perform preventative maintenance, which can extend your plumbing appliances’ lifespan. Manufacturers design most residential water heaters with a lifespan of 11 to 20 years before homeowners need to replace them. We can ensure your water heater functions optimally with regular repairs, but you probably won’t get more than two decades out of your model. Fortunately, you can turn to our highly trained and seasoned service professionals to examine your water and determine if we can repair it, or if an upgrade is the better choice. Replacing a residential water heater can be a good thing with our company’s affordable installation services. Furthermore, upgrading to a newer, more model with better energy efficiency can reduce your monthly energy bills and save you money over time.
The Benefits of a Home Water Heater Upgrade
While our team offers quality repairs on all residential water heater makes and models, it may make more sense to invest in a replacement. Repairs might end up costing more money than you can afford, or your existing appliance may have reached the end of its useful years. A new water heater entails better efficiency than your old model. With improved efficiency, you can spend less every month on energy costs. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Fort McMurray ensures the new appliance we install adheres to federally mandated standards. If you have an outdated water heater and have had to settle for lukewarm water, you’re past due for an upgrade. Our team will guide you through a wide water heater selection to choose the ideal model for your home based on how much water you typically use and any space limitations in your structure. We can perform a water heater replacement with any of the following plumbing fixture types:
- Conventional Water Heaters – A traditional water heater stores water in a large tank and heats it with gas or electrical energy. Our service professionals install various conventional tank sizes based on your home’s space limitations and hot water needs. An efficient conventional water heater can drop your heating energy bills by up to 7% when you install one in your home.
- Tankless Water Heaters – This newer and more compact water heater version takes up much less space than conventional models. Tankless water heaters provide instant hot water whenever an appliance or fixture demands it. Homeowners with space limitations or who don’t like waiting for water to heat choose tankless water heaters and can save as much as 30% on their energy bills.
- Hybrid Water Heaters – Combining water heater types can save you up to 60% on monthly utility bills. Hybrid water heaters combine heat pumps with conventional tank storage water heaters.
