Replacing Your Water Heater VS. Repairing It
Some homeowners see water heater replacement only as a last resort if hot water heater repair isn’t available. While repair might be enough in some cases, sometimes, replacing an old or irreparably broken water heater will be the only way. If you’re still on the fence, here are some important things to consider:
- Age of your system: Tank style heaters are made to last 8-12 years while tankless systems last 20. If your water heater is old, consider hot water heater replacement.
- Efficiency: Your old system may be costing you money. Over time, water heaters become less efficient and newer, more efficient models have better efficiency ratings.
- Repairs are expensive: If your repairs cost 50% of what it would cost to replace, you should replace.
Whatever, you decide, The Plumbing & Air Service Co. is always available to address your water heater issues.
Benefits of a Tankless Water Heater
There are many benefits to upgrading to a tankless water heater that may convince you to take the plunge. Many homeowners love the energy savings they experience when they upgrade to a tankless system. They can be anywhere from 8-15% more efficient and last much longer than tankless systems - up to 20 years! Tankless systems also have the added benefit of being more compact than conventional tank water heaters. If you have limited floor space, this can be a huge benefit. Tankless systems also provide hot water on demand so even after a family member takes a long shower, you’ll be able to enjoy a hot shower too!

Water Heater Maintenance
Just like any appliance you use, your water heater requires regular maintenance. Professional maintenance can improve your water heater’s efficiency greatly, giving you noticeably better performance and energy savings. Some DIY methods can hold you over until your next regularly scheduled tune-up. You can flush your water heater tank by attaching a hose to the drain valve to flush the system. You can clean your tankless system in a similar way by removing limescale build-up and flushing it with a vinegar solution.
