Do You Need a New Water Heater?

No matter how well you maintain your water heater nor how well it was built, water heater will eventually wear out and need to be replaced. Today, the average lifespan of a water heater is around roughly eight years, and regular maintenance can raise the age expectation to around 10 years. When your heater reaches this age, you should strongly consider replacement in order to avoid some of the hassles or potentially dangerous problems that an old water heater can cause.

Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement:

  • Your current water heater is leaking - As water heats up, it expands which will put pressure on your tank. Over time, this pressure will cause leaks in your tank which can be rather pricey to fix, so you should consult our Austin water heater replacement specialists.
  • Your current water heater is showing signs of age - Things to watch out for include corrosion on the inside of your unit. Water heaters have a sacrificial anode rod that attracts the rusting elements, but if this is too rusty it could spread to your tank.
  • Your energy bills have climbed substantially for no apparent reason - Over time, your unit is going to become less efficient particularly if it's not serviced regularly. If you're noticing that the utility that powers your water heater has a bill that keeps rising steadily, contact our Austin water heater installation experts about looking into a new unit.
  • You seem to run out of hot water faster than you did before - If you find that your hot water just keeps running out, it might be time to upgrade to a bigger tank or get a tankless unit. Tankless water heaters heat as you go so they don't run out of hot water.
  • Your hot water doesn’t seem to be as hot as it was before - If there is an issue with your heating element, then you might not be getting the same temperature that you've gotten used to. Also, watch out for a water heater that just takes too long to heat and if you notice either of this issues contact our water heater replacement experts.

A new water heater installation is a pretty serious project, which is why we strongly advise leaving it to our professionals. We make sure you have the proper permits for getting the job done, that your connections are solid and sealed from leaks or other issues, and that your new heater is properly secured. If you want to make sure your home is in good hands, make sure your new water heater is installed by a professional.

Tank vs. Tankless Water Heaters

There are many types of water heaters to consider, especially if you have an older unit. A tank-type heater is the most common and has been around for over a hundred years. They cost less upfront and are the easiest to install and replace. However, they can cost you more money in energy because the tanks are large and heavy. This means that over the life of the water heater you’re likely to spend more money.

A tankless water heater heats the water as it flows through special tubing inside the device. Because it heats water as you use it, you can never run out of hot water. This is very helpful for families or businesses that use a lot of hot water on a regular basis. These units require routine maintenance to keep sediment from building up. The higher upfront cost of a tankless system is offset by energy savings.

There are also hybrid systems that have both a tank and a heat pump. A hybrid water heater can save you money on energy costs and give you some of the benefits of a tankless water heater without as much cost up front. However, the lifetime cost of the unit will still be more than an entirely tankless system.
