When Do I Need a Water Heater Repair?

There are several signs you’ll notice when you need a commercial water heater repair or replacement. One of the first signs is a change in your hot water supply. When you go to wash your hands, the hot water may take longer to come on than usual. Your tenants may tell you that they are running out of hot water when they take their showers. Your pilot light may be out, or you may not have hot water at all. There may be a leak in your water heater tank. All of these signs may lead to the need for water heater replacement or water heater repair depending on the circumstances.

What Are My Water Heater Replacement Options?

At a certain point, it may be time for a water heater replacement in your commercial building. You may have noticed it was older than you thought and exhibited signs of wear and tear such as rust on the tank. There are multiple options for replacing your water heater. Current water heater types include:

  • Conventional - Conventional water heaters are what come to mind first when you think of water heaters. Gas or electricity is used to heat the tank of water. You may prefer gas or electricity water heaters depending on your needs.

  • Tankless - Tankless water heaters tend to be more efficient than conventional water heaters and better for your pockets because they only use a heat pump to heat up water as needed. Your costs may be reduced by as much as 30%.

  • Hybrid - Hybrid water heaters can help reduce costs even more as they don’t directly generate heat. They use a heat pump. Your costs may be reduced by as much as 60% with a hybrid water heater.

What Is the Life Expectancy of a Water Heater?

Knowing the life expectancy of a water heater may help you determine whether you need a water heater repair or a water heater replacement. As mentioned before, water heaters that are over eight years old may require replacing. If you have a conventional tank, it may last around this time frame. If you have a tankless water heater, you can expect it to last around 20 years. That’s pretty much double the amount of time it will last versus a conventional water heater tank. These timeframes aren’t set in stone. Our service professionals at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Lethbridge can give you expert advice on the life of your equipment as well as the connected water supply.
