Repair vs. Replace: When Is It Time for a New Water Heater?
Some water heater problems are minor enough to be effectively addressed with professional repairs. Things like an unlit pilot light, tripped circuit breaker, broken burner, or sediment buildup are all relatively inexpensive and easy to address. However, certain issues with your water heater may indicate that it’s time for a replacement. Our Wheaton plumbers can help you determine which course of action is best for you.
Common signs you should replace your water heater:
- The tank shows signs of corrosion
- There is a leak in the water heater
- You keep having to pay for repairs
- The water heater is more than 10 years old
What to Consider Before Starting Water Heater Repairs
Like most household appliances, your water heater is one of those things that gets taken for granted – until it goes kaput. Then it garners all the attention it deserves. On average, the lifespan of most water heaters is between ten and fifteen years. Of course, this lifespan varies according to the frequency of use and care and maintenance. Knowing when it’s time for water heater repair allows you to make informed decisions and ensure a constant supply of clean, safe hot water.
- Take an honest assessment of your time, schedule and skill. Will you really be able to safely and routinely maintain your water heater? Maintenance plays a big role in the lifespan of your water heater. Consequently, the lack of maintenance plays a big role in repair costs and necessity. Units that undergo routine checks and upgrades last longer and undergo less frequent and costly repairs.
- Is your water heater dispensing cold instead of hot water? Yikes! It may be something as simple as a blown pilot light or as complicated as a faulty thermocouple. Relighting the pilot light could be a DIY project. Repairing or replacing the thermocouple is a job for our team of skilled pros.
- If your water heater is emitting a foul odor similar to that of a rotten egg, you’ll definitely want to call us in for a timely repair. That unpleasant smell usually means your unit has bacteria growing inside it, which makes the water passing through it pose a health risk for your family. We can repair the unit and restore bacterial and PH levels to safe standards fast!
Benefits of Water Heater Replacement
Replacing your water heater may seem like an irritating, expensive investment, but there are actually a number of benefits to having a new one installed. Firstly, if your current water heater is old, you’ll enjoy improved efficiency and lowered monthly bills with a newer, modern unit. Secondly, if you’ve had to shell out for your frequent water heater repairs, replacing your water heater can save you time, money, and hassle with fewer breakdowns and problems. Lastly, water heater replacement offers you the opportunity to upgrade to an energy-efficient, tankless water heater for endless hot water. Precision Today Plumbing Drain Cleaning specializes in tankless water heater installation throughout Wheaton and the surrounding areas.
Is a Tankless Water Heater Right for You?
When considering whether to replace your existing water heater with a tankless option, there are a few factors to consider. Tankless water heaters offer numerous benefits—such an endless hot water whenever you need it, improved energy efficiency, and lowered energy/gas bills. Tankless units are a great option especially when space is a constraint. The small units are mounted on a wall vs taking up floor space and can make a huge difference in a tight, mechanical room. If you’re interested in learning more about the advantages of a tankless water heater, our expert Wheaton plumbing technicians are happy to answer your questions. We will ask you questions to help you determine if a tankless is the best solution for you and make sure it is sized properly.
