Wouldn’t it be nice to invest in a water heater, have it professionally installed by a Sunny Plumber, and know for certain that that’s the last water heater you’ll ever need? Of course it would be, but so would a lot of other scenarios that are just not possible.

Investing in great equipment, a proper installation, and routine maintenance will keep your water heater operating at peak conditions for as long as possible, but no appliance can truly last forever. Ideally, you’ll schedule your water heater replacement before you wind up with a system that’s broken down altogether.

It Cannot Handle Your Hot Water Demand
If you are not able to heat enough water consistently for use throughout your home, meaning everyone’s showers, doing the laundry, washing the dishes, etc., then you should think about replacing your water heater. Maybe your family’s grown, or maybe you just inherited an undersized water heater when you bought your home. Whatever the reason for the underwhelming performance from your appliance, you deserve better!
We know that it can be frustrating to replace an appliance when there is technically nothing wrong with it, but the fact of the matter is that you need the amount of hot water that you need. Can you scale back on consumption if you know that everyone is really luxuriating in the hot shower on a daily basis? Sure. Should you really compromise when it comes to your use of hot water in your home, though? Our vote is no.
It Frequently Needs Repairs
When you’re as good at your job as our plumbers are at theirs, there is very little that you cannot handle. Our plumbers are so good, in fact, that they have to draw a line in the sand from time to time. What we mean is this—not every water heater that can be fixed is actually worth fixing.
If your water heater needs repairs more and more frequently, or if you are currently facing down a very costly repair for a less than stellar water heater, then the time may be right for a replacement. It’s a major investment, but one that will yield a better return than repairs done over and over again.
You Want Something New
There is no reason why you cannot just replace your water heater because you’ve decided that it’s not the right fit for your personal user preferences. Maybe you want to invest in a tankless model to reap long-term savings. Maybe you want to make the switch to a large storage tank model to meet the heavy demand for hot water in your home. Whatever the case may be, we’ll make sure that you have exactly what you need.
