When Should I Replace My Tank Water Heater?

You can expect a hot water heater to last about a decade if properly maintained. Water heaters can last even longer, but hot water heater replacement services are still typically recommended at about the 10-year mark regardless. Beyond this point, a water heater no longer runs at peak efficiency. That means that it is costing your more each month. A new water heater will cost more up front, but it will actually save you money over time.

The other issue with older water heaters is that they are a ticking bomb that can eventually leak and could cause serious damage. Christian advises annual inspections of your water heater to avoid such problems. If you notice odd noises or issues with your hot water supply, you should call us and schedule service right away.

Standard Tank Water Heater Replacement

Gas Water Heaters

Gas water heaters use a burner to maintain the temperature of stored water, and that burner runs on either natural gas or propane. These units tend to cost less than electric units up front and over the long term, but toxic gases are a byproduct and must be exhausted.

Electric Water Heaters

Water heaters that run on electricity have a heated coil as opposed to a burner and thus do not create toxic gases as a byproduct. Electric water heaters do not replenish their hot water supply as fast as gas water heaters do, but they do allow for larger storage tanks.

Why the Right Size Water Heater is Important

Water heaters must be sized based on the needs of a household, for example a family of four will use more hot water than a couple. You need to factor in all of your appliances and water needs such as washing machines, dishwashers and so forth. A water heater that is too small will just lead to frustration and inconvenience, and a water heater that is too large will just lead to you spending money unnecessarily. Our hot water heater replacement experts have a lot of experience helping homeowners choose the perfect size for them.
