When Should I Replace My Water Heater?
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an old or outdated water heater can actually save you money in terms of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 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.
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.
3 Signs You Need Water Heater Repair
An old water heater doesn't always seem like a huge deal until you realize
you are taking an ice bath. Your water heater is always on the clock.
It will make sure that your home has hot water every day throughout the
year. With the amount of stress your water heater endures, it shouldn't
be a surprise that your water heater will break down at some point. Below
we've provided you with 3 signs to look out for to know when your water
heater needs repair.
Strange Noises Come From Tank Water tanks often make odd noises, 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 an appointment.
Leaking Water With an older water heater, the structure of the water heater can weaken
and lead to leaks, which then leads to water pooling around the bottom
of the tank. This leaking could lead to corrosion and eat into the outer
parts of the water and work it's way to the inside of the water heater.
Make sure to call our expert Modesto water heater repair technicians for
the help you need.
Discolored Water When you noticed that your water is coming out of the shower head or bathtub
faucet with a brownish rust color, it could be due to your water heater.
Ask our professional Modesto water heater repair team to come out and
see if they can clean the sedimentation from the water heater.
