A broken water heater can be a major inconvenience for you and your family. Besides not having hot water, a broken water heater can lead to extensive water damage. At Gotelli Plumbing, we’re experts at repairing broken water heaters. But if your water heater has burst, is in need of frequent repairs or is past its life expectancy, it might be time to replace it. Luckily, we can help you determine whether or not it needs to be replaced and pinpoint what model is right for you. Then, we’ll take over with the installation process.
Determining the Right Water Heater for You
Choosing the right model is vital if you want a long-lasting and reliable water heater. If you get a water heater that is too small for your needs, its life expectancy will be considerably shorter – and it will likely need frequent repairs along the way. Not to mention, if your water heater is too small, you and your family are going to be fighting over who gets to shower first. Our technicians can evaluate your home and the needs of your family to determine what size is right for you.
When to Consider Water Heater Replacement
When it comes to water heaters, it can be dangerous and costly to keep using them past their life expectancy. The average water heater lasts 10 to 13 years, so identify the age of your system. If it’s within the life expectancy range, it might be time for water heater replacement. If the system is constantly in need of repairs, or if you are only getting cold or lukewarm water, the water heater is probably costing you more money than it’s worth.
There are also a number of benefits that come with replacing your water heater. For instance, replacing the appliance means you will be spared the hassle of a burst water heater. A burst water heater can result in extensive water damage in your home or business. Other benefits of replacement include better temperature regulation and increased home value. Replacement can also save you money on your energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint.
