When to Replace Your Water Heater

sunny-plumberYou don’t think about your water heater all that much, we’re willing to bet. This is the case as long as your water heater is working properly, at least. However, no water heater is going to work properly all of the time, and no water heater is going to last forever. In many instances of trouble, water heater repairs are possible. There will come a time, though, when you need to schedule a professional water heater replacement in Corona. When you do, contact us.

The Sunny Plumber SoCal not only installs water heaters of the highest quality from some of the most trusted manufacturers in the industry, but we also install them the right way, every step of the way. Why? Because you deserve the best! Your water heater is used to heat water for all applications throughout your home, from bathing to doing the dishes and general cleaning. You need it to function properly if you want to keep your home running smoothly. 

Is Your Water Heater Getting Old?

Old is relative, of course—or at least that’s what we like to tell ourselves as we start to age more! The fact is that the age of your water heater is not quite the determining factor that you may think it is. If your water heater is getting on in years, then its age may play a part in deciding whether to repair or replace. Just because it’s old, though, doesn’t mean it needs replacing.

This is certainly the case if you’ve always been diligent in scheduling routine water heater maintenance. But how old is too old? Typically a tank water heater will last around 12 years, while tankless models will hang in there for more than twenty. How do you use this information? Ask yourself this next question:

Is Your Water Heater Efficient and Reliable?

If not, then that, combined with age, may be reason for replacement. You might want to replace a newer system if it’s unreliable, but chances are that it is still under warranty. If it’s old enough that its warranty is voided, however, then replacement may be better than paying for further repairs.

Your system may also be running reliably but costing you too much in the process. If this is the case, then that reliability may not be enough to justify its continued use. Of course, you may also have an inefficient newer system that you bought to save money up front. Even if your system is not that old, replacing it if financially feasible will help you to save money in the long run.

Is It Still Meeting Your Expectations?

Is your household bigger than it used to be in terms of residents? Are you doing more and more laundry now that children have entered the equation? If so, you may need a bigger water heater to keep up with demand. If so, just let us know so that we can get a new one in place that will meet your needs better.
