When to Replace Your Water Heater
While repair is often possible, it is not the best option in every situation. In some cases, a water heater may have reached the end of its life or fixing the water heater may not be practical or cost-effective. In these situations, we will recommend replacement. When your water heater is old and inefficient, there are many comfort and economic advantages to upgrading to a more efficient water heater.
Upgrading a water heater offers advantages that include:
- Improved energy efficiency
- Lower operating costs
- Reduced risk of unexpected breakdowns
- Faster hot water recovery
Some signs that it may be time to replace your water heater include rust on the tank or in the hot water, a leaking tank, noise, failure to heat the water, and not keeping the water hot enough or providing enough hot water to meet your demand.
Traditional & Tankless Water Heaters
When the time comes to replace your water heater, you will need to choose between a traditional or tankless unit. Traditional water heaters use a storage tank to hold heated water until it is needed. When purchasing a traditional unit, it is important to ensure that it is properly sized to supply enough hot water to meet your needs. Tankless water heaters heat the water on-demand, so you have a nearly unlimited supply.
Other reasons to choose a tankless water heater include:
- A constant supply of hot water
- Energy efficient
- Lower utility costs
- Environmentally friendly
- Less space required for installation
- Longer lifespan
We are happy to provide a free estimate for the cost of your new water heater installation. We can provide information about different models to help you compare and choose the unit that best meets your hot water needs and your budget. Our technicians are experienced at installing all types of traditional and tankless water heaters in Lexington.
Do Tankless Water Heaters Need Maintenance?
Like traditional water heaters, tankless water heaters need regular maintenance work done. Typically maintenance should be done once a year. If your home has hard water or your water heater is set to higher temperatures, maintenance may need to be done sixth months.
