and save you money on your monthly utility costs.
If your water heater is giving you trouble, the first thing you’re
probably thinking of is cost. How much will it cost to repair the water
heater, and is it better in the long-run to simply replace it? The answer
depends on a few factors. While some water heater problems can be effectively
repaired, others are not so simple to address; you may need to replace
your water heater if it’s experiencing major issues—and this
may actually be the more cost-effective option. In some cases, replacing
an old or outdated water heater can actually save you money in terms of
the amount you spend every month on utilities.
Here’s how you can determine whether you should repair or replace
your water heater:
Do you keep needing frequent water heater repairs? A one-time issue, such as a broken thermostat or pilot light that goes
out, can easily be fixed by a professional water heater repair technician.
However, if you find yourself having to call a plumber every few days
or weeks for repairs, it could be a sign that your water heater is on
its way out. You may want to consider having it replaced.
Does your water heater just need maintenance? Some water heater problems, including sediment buildup in the tank (a
common symptom is “popping” or rumbling noises coming from
the tank), can be addressed with routine water heater maintenance. Regularly
flushing your water heater will help keep it in tip-top shape and prevent
premature failure. Call our water heater maintenance experts to schedule
Have your water/utility bills increased lately? Unexplained increases on your water/utility bills are one of the most common
indicators of an inefficient water heater. Replacing your current water
heater with a new, energy-efficient model can help you cut unnecessary
costs and, ultimately, save you a ton of money in the long run.
Is it harder to get hot water, or does the hot water run out faster? If you find yourself turning the shower dial further and further to get
hot water, or if the hot water seems to run out much faster than it once
did, it probably means something is wrong with your water heater. A professional
can diagnose the problem and determine whether repairs are possible.
How old is your water heater? Most traditional tank water heaters are designed to last about 12 to 15
years, whereas most tankless models are meant to last for about 20 years.
If your water heater is older than this, or if you’ve never had
it serviced, it is probably a good time to consider water heater replacement.
Do the cost of repairs exceed the cost of a new water heater? This one is pretty obvious—if it’s going to cost more to repair
your current water heater than to replace it entirely, it only make sense
to have a new one installed. Our Modesto water heater repair and replacement
technicians will provide you with an honest, upfront price regarding the
cost of repairs vs. new water heater installation so you can make an informed choice.
