  • Signs it’s time for a new water heater

    Unfortunately, water heaters aren’t made to last forever. In fact, your unit will probably break down at some point due to one of the following factors:

    Frequent Problems – It could be bad manufacturing. It could be poor maintenance by your local plumber. However, if your unit is experiencing frequent problems, it’s best to replace it with a system that’s properly installed.

    Age – Water heaters will only last between 5 – 15 years, depending on a number of factors. If your unit is getting up there in age, it’s time to call for a water heater replacement.

    Discolored Water – Rusty colored water coming out of the tap means the inside of the tank has started to rot, which is not good for you or the water heater.

    Loud Noises – While the unit will make some noise, you shouldn’t hear anything that startles you. When you do, call the local water heater professionals to take a look.

    Lack of Maintenance – If you routinely neglect to have your unit maintained, it’s likely that this has caused damage. Have your system replaced, and remember to schedule annual maintenance to preserve longevity.

  • Conventional Water Heaters

    A conventional water heater is the big bulky tank that most of us think about when we here the term “water heater.” Water is continuously heated by a pilot light or heating element, depending on the type you own. Here are the pros at cons of conventional water heaters:

    Pros
    • Holds a large amount of water
    • Suitable for large homes/households
    • Low-maintenance
    • Long Lifespan

    Cons
    • Takes up a lot of space
    • Expensive to replace
    • Possibly wastes energy/water

  • Tankless Water Heaters

    A tankless water heater is just that – tankless. It heats water on demand, which helps it conserve energy and wastewater. However, these models also have their drawbacks. Read more for details about the pros and cons of tankless water heaters:

  • Pros
    • Conserves energy/water
    • Wall-mounted (takes up less space)
    • Low-maintenance

  • Cons
    • Expensive to retrofit
    • May not be suitable for large homes/households
    • May need more than one unit
