Should I repair or replace my water heater?

Water heater replacement may be needed for the following reasons:

 

  • Leaks: Sometimes, older water heaters leak around the base of the tank.

 

  • Age: Water heaters may need to be replaced if they are older than 8-12 years.  This also depends on the water heater’s design, how well it was installed, regular preventative maintenance, and where it is located in the building.

 

  • Energy Cost:  Newer water heaters tend to be much more energy efficient than older models. This can save the homeowner hundreds in energy costs over the span of a year.

What type of water heater is right for me?

There are three main styles of water heater available and each one has its benefits and potential drawbacks. Whether you are looking for an upgrade or a replacement, call Call Jones Plumbing to get a professional recommendation and installation of the best water heater for you.  Here’s a little bit about each style of water heater.  

Tankless Water Heater

Enjoy and endless supply of hot water! A tankless water heater uses heated coils to heat water as needed, rather than relying on a supply of water in a tank.  This type of water heater is able to heat water quickly, and is a great option for families who may need to take a shower, run the dishwasher and laundry all at the same time.  Tankless water heaters use 40% less energy than traditional tank water heaters. Average life expectancy of 20 years*with regular maintenance

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater

A conventional storage tank water heater is the most popular type of water heater.  Water is heated and held in an insulated tank.  The amount of hot water available at one time is determined by the size of the tank.  Smaller tanks may run out of hot water more frequently, leaving family members to wait for the next tank of water to heat up. Average life expectancy of 8-10 years

Solar Powered Water Heater

A solar powered water heater is a good option for homes that already have solar panels installed.  This type of water heater is extremely energy efficient, and works well in sunny climates.  Solar powered water heaters do usually need a backup plan for cloudy days, though.  Gas or electricity are typlically used to power the water heater when sun is not available to do the job.

Condensing Water Heater

A condensing water heater uses the unused gas fumes from a home to heat water.  This is a good option for gas-powered homes.  It is a very energy efficient water heater.  Condensing water heaters, like conventional storage water heaters, uses a tank to hold heated water.  So, the tank should be large enough for the size of the family using it.

Heat Pump Water Heater

A heat pump water heater or hybrid water heater uses heat from the ground and air to heat water.  This type of water heater uses up to 60% less electricity than traditional water heaters.  Heat pump water heaters do not work well if installed in cold places such as basements.  Though a homeowner can expect to save money on electricity costs, the upfront cost of a heat pump water heater is more expensive than other types of water heaters.
