When Is Water Heater Replacement Necessary?
Some water heater problems can be effectively repaired. If you’re dealing with a relatively minor issue, water heater repairs or a maintenance service might be enough to get your system back up and running. However, some problems indicate a larger issue. In these cases, you’ll need to have your water heater replaced entirely.
Some signs that you need water heater replacement include:
- Your water heater is more than 10 years old
- When you turn on the hot water, it’s rusty
- You never have enough hot water
- There’s a leak in the tank or another part of the unit
- Unusual noises and rumbling sounds
Extend the life of Your Water Heater With Regular Maintenance
Believe it or not, you can perform maintenance on your own water heater which can help you prevent fire hazards, clean the water heater and extend the lifetime of your system. Put simply, it’ll help save you lots of money in the long run.
Step 1: Keep the area around the water heater clear. This will help prevent it from gathering dust, dirt and debris that can get into the system and clog it up or cause major fire hazards.
Step 2: Wipe down the exterior of the tank and vacuum up around the system. Pay close attention to the screen at the bottom which tends to suck in lint, dirt, and debris. When it gets plugged up, your water heater can’t breathe and it won’t function properly.
Step 3: Flush out the sediment that accumulates over the course of the year. Take a bucket and place it under the drain at the bottom of the heater. Open it up and pull about a gallon or two of water out of it. This will help extend the lifetime of your system.
Choosing the Right Replacement Water Heater
If it’s time to invest in a new water heater, Hero Plumbing, Heating & Cooling can help you find the perfect solution. We offer a number of options for homes throughout the region, including gas and electric water heaters, as well as energy-efficient tankless units. If you're unsure which type of water heater to choose, we can help!
Here are some things to consider when selecting a new water heater:
How much hot water do you need?
If you live in a 5 or 6 person household and you only have a 50-gallon tank, you're probably no stranger to running out of hot water and may wish to consider upgrading to a 60-80 gallon tank or a tankless water heater. Likewise, if you have an oversize water heater for a household of one or two people, you're paying more money for energy to heat all that water that you really don't need.
What is your budget?
Conventional water heaters cost less up front, but they also have a shorter lifespan than tankless water heaters, which require more of an initial investment.
Are you tight on space?
Tank-style water heaters are much larger and will take up more space in your garage or basement, whereas tankless water heaters are small and compact.
