Do I Need My Water Heater Repaired or Replaced?
Choosing to repair or replace your water heater is a big decision. We strive to make that decision easy by providing a detailed inspection of your system. There are a few warning signs to look for that often indicate your system is starting to break down. This includes:
- Age. If your system is over 10 years old, it is likely time to replace it. This varies on model type as well as maintenance history. An older system may still work, but it may not be as efficient as possible. Efficiency helps to save you money on monthly utility bills, making it worth the investment.
- Inconsistent temperatures. Your water heater should provide you quick access to heat. If it is taking a long time to heat up, or you run out of hot water quickly, you’ll likely need a repair or replacement.
- Leaks. Any water leaks require immediate attention. This can be a serious hazard to your safety, especially if you have pets or small children.
There are several other factors that we can help you consider. Complete honesty is one of our driving philosophies. We will always let you know what we consider to be your best options, including the decision of repairing your current system or installing a new system.
Tank Water Heater Systems
Most homes have a tank water heater system. This is a physical tank that holds a specific number of gallons. The size depends on your property size as well as the number of people relying on your hot water system. Tank systems work by continuously heating the water within the tank to a certain temperature. If you use up the water within the tank, you’ll have to wait for the tank to refill and reach the proper temperature. This is a tried-and-true system that is seen in most residential and commercial properties.
Tankless Water Heater Systems
While tank systems are the most common system, tankless is quickly growing in popularity. Tankless systems are attached directly to your water line, completely removing the bulky tank that can be an eyesore. This system helps you better utilize your space, leaving you more room for storage and other essentials. Tankless systems also provide limitless hot water on demand. With a tankless system, you never have to worry about running out of hot water, no matter how many people use your system. Tankless systems can also save you more money since they are more efficient when it comes to energy use. A tank system requires consistent energy use to keep the water stored in the tank hot. With the tankless system, you only use energy when you turn on the faucet.
