Water Heater Replacement

We will thoroughly examine your water heater for possible repairs, but sometimes repairs are too costly or won’t prevent other issues from appearing later on. A homeowner may choose to repair a part only to have something else fail a few months later. Older water heaters are more at risk for frequent breakdowns, and a homeowner may be better off replacing it rather than performing repair after repair.

If it makes more sense to replace rather than repair your water heater, we will work with you to find a perfect replacement for your home. Here are a few signs it may be time to look for a replacement water heater:

  • Leaks. If you ever spot water outside of your hot water heater, call a professional right away. Small leaks could point to a faulty pressure valve, which can be replaced. Larger leaks, however, can mean that the tank itself has formed a crack and needs replacing. Frequent flushes will prevent sediment buildup from expanding and forming cracks. When the unit has already started leaking, however, it’s best to take care of it before it gets worse and causes a significant amount of flooding and water damage.

    Not enough hot water. If your hot water heater isn’t heating water like it used to or it has never provided enough hot water for your household, it may be time to replace your unit. The heating elements could be failing or there is simply too must sediment buildup for the heating element to effectively run. If a simple flush doesn’t help and your unit is already nearing the end of its life, it may be smarter to find a replacement rather than try to repair it. If it seems that your unit has never provided enough hot water for the whole family, your unit could just be too small for your household. An upgrade to a larger size may solve your hot water woes.
  • Presence of rust. Rust anywhere on or around your machine is a bad sign—whether it’s on the connection pipes, the tank itself, or in the water coming out of the faucets. Rust can quickly corrode your unit and the pipes leading to and from it, causing leaks to form. Before extensive damage is done, start looking for a suitable replacement.
  • Strange noises. Loud noises such as popping, grinding, hissing, or creaking alert homeowners that there is something wrong with the hot water heater. Usually these strange noises are caused by a buildup of sediment on the bottom of the machine. If these noises persist after flushing the unit, it may be on the verge of cracking. Before your unit springs a leak, start looking for a replacement unit.
  • Age. Sometimes simple repairs can work for a few of these issues on a newer unit. However, older units struggle to maintain their effectiveness past 10 years of age. If your unit is nearing this benchmark and beginning to show signs of malfunctioning, a replacement may be better in the long run.
