Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
In general, a hot water heater can have a lifespan of between 11-20 years if it’s well-maintained. After evaluating your water heater and determining what’s causing your water problems, we can recommend residential water heater repair or replacement. We will only recommend water heater replacement if it is more cost-effective, if it's in the best interests of your family's needs, or if it is safer. We'll consider many different factors when making our recommendation for replacing a water heater:
- The age of the water heater. It might be time to replace it if it's over 15 years old.
- How energy-efficient the water heater is and your average water heating costs.
- The cost and availability of natural gas, electricity, or propane in your area.
- Whether your family has changing hot water needs that aren’t being met.
- Whether you want a water heater that is more eco-friendly or green.
- How well maintained your water heater has been over the years?
- Whether your water heater was installed correctly.
- Where the water heater was installed. Water heaters installed outside or in attics might be exposed to temperature fluctuations or other factors that can influence their lifespan.
Our Water Heater Replacement Options
We can install the following types of water heaters in your home. We would be happy to help you choose the hot water heater that best meets your family's needs and budget:
- Conventional Water Heater - A conventional, or standard water heater has a storage tank that can hold between 30-60 gallons of water, depending on its size. The water is heated with natural gas, propane, electricity, or fuel oil and kept warm in the tank until needed. If you install an energy-efficient water heater, you can reduce your water heating bills by up to 7%.
- Tankless Water Heater - A tankless water heater operates without a tank and provides on-demand hot water. The water is rapidly heated using a heat exchanger powered by natural gas or electricity. If you install a tankless water heater, you can reduce your water heating bills by up to 30%.
- Hybrid Water Heater - A hybrid water heater has a tank but uses an electric heat pump to heat the water. The heat pump transfers warm air from the outside to the inside of the tank to warm the water. If you install a hybrid water heater, you can reduce your water heating bills by up to 60%.
