Water Heater Repair and Replacement

Choosing the Right Water Heater

When choosing a water heater for your home, consider factors such as your household’s hot water usage, energy efficiency goals, budget, and available space. Our experienced plumbers can help you select the right type and size of water heater to meet your needs and ensure years of reliable hot water for your home.

Here are the most common types of water heaters:

These are the most traditional type of water heaters found in many homes. They feature a large tank that heats and stores water until needed. Conventional storage water heaters are available in electric and natural gas models. 

If you have a busy household that uses multiple fixtures at one time, a conventional water tank is the best fit for you.

Tankless systems heat water directly without the use of a storage tank. They provide endless hot water, and are highly efficient since they only heat water as needed. 

While the upfront cost is higher for a tankless system, they having a longer lifespan of 10-15 years while saving homeowners on their monthly energy bills.

Is It Time to Replace Your Water Heater?

Regular maintenance can extend the lifespan of your water heater, but eventually, it will need to be replaced. Here are some signs that it’s time to consider upgrading to a new water heater:

Most conventional water heaters have a lifespan of around 8 to 10 years. If your water temperature is becoming less predictable, it may be a sign of an aging water heater.

Do you find yourself calling for frequent water heater repairs? Investing in a new, more reliable water heater can save you money on repair costs in the long run.

If your water heater isn’t producing enough hot water to meet your household’s needs, or the water temperature fluctuates unexpectedly, it could indicate that the unit is failing and needs to be replaced.

Loud banging, popping, or rumbling noises from your water heater can indicate sediment buildup or other internal problems. If these noises persist after flushing the tank, it may be time to consider replacing the unit.

Visible signs of water leakage around the base of the water heater indicate a significant problem. A leaking tank can lead to water damage and should be addressed immediately.

Rust or corrosion on the outside of the water heater tank clearly indicates internal damage and potential tank failure. If you notice rust-colored water coming from your faucets, it’s time to call a professional plumber.

As water heaters age, they become less efficient, leading to higher energy bills. If you’ve noticed a significant increase in energy costs without a corresponding increase in usage, it may be time to replace your water heater with a more energy-efficient model.

If you’re experiencing any of these signs or are unsure about the condition of your water heater, contact Lex’s Plumbing. Our team will assess its condition and provide you with honest advice on whether repair or replacement is best for your home.
