It’s Time for a New Water Heater

sunny-plumbersWater heater systems don’t last forever. Sometimes we like to treat them like they do, only to be surprised when they collapse after showing signs of deterioration for decades. We’d like to change this way of thinking by talking more openly about when it might be time to retire your old water heater. Whether it’s causing your energy bills to rise or it’s just not supplying your home with enough hot water, both of these can be signs that you need to invest in a new one.

Luckily, there are some amazing options to choose from these days. When dealing with a water heater replacement in Tucson, you can choose to invest in a tankless water heating system that will keep your home’s water hot without the use of a bulky tank. Or, you could stick with a tank water heater replacement if it suits your budget and needs.

Signs of an Aging Water Heater

Water heaters can run their full course after 10 or 15 years of service. Once your water heater reaches this age, you might start to notice the following problems crop up. These are usually signs that you need to replace the system, since repairs and costs of operation will only get more expensive over time.

  • Not enough hot water. First and foremost, your water heater should be sized and designed appropriately to provide your home with adequate hot water for your needs. Perhaps in the last 10 years you’ve added new family members, or you’ve got friends staying with you and your water heater is just collapsing under the new load. This can be a sign that you need to upgrade, and a tankless water heater might be a good choice!
  • Constant leaks and problems. If your water heater is constantly leaking and giving you cause for calling a professional for repairs every year, then it might have already passed its breaking point. Call our team to have your system evaluated and to explore your options.
  • It takes forever to heat up. Your water heater, especially if it’s a tank water heater, should give you fast hot water. If not, that’s cause for a replacement!
  • The system consumes too much energy. Are you noticing a trend with your energy bills that your water heater is consuming too much? This doesn’t just mean that you’re using more hot water, it could be a sign that your water heater is running inefficiently, which is a big problem for your budget and your hot water!
  • It’s old and outdated. While it might seem like age is a bad reason to replace your water heater, bear with us. Once a water heater passes beyond 10–15 years in age, it’s working on borrowed time and repairs will only get more extensive and expensive.
