Should I Repair or Replace My Water Heater?


Having a water heater that works is essential to a comfortable and functional home. You rely on your water heater for doing dishes, taking a shower, and completing a host of other tasks around your home. If your water heater malfunctions and fails to provide hot water, it can be extremely inconvenient, not to mention dangerous. Water heaters can become damaged or break over time, causing water damage and flooding to your home. Thus, it is important to get experienced assistance as soon as you notice an unusual noise or inadequate heating.

In general, water heaters last between 8 and 12 years. Electric water heater units can last a little longer, up to 10 or 15 years. If your water heater is becoming old, it may develop leaks, rust, and other problems. Repairing it now will only provide a limited amount of time before another component breaks. Thus, if you have an older water heater that is experiencing problems, you should consider replacing the unit entirely.

Furthermore, a leak in your water heater tank requires an immediate replacement. This is necessary to protect your home from flooding. Installing a newer model can also provide better efficiency, as well as energy savings and a longer lifespan. However, if you are only experiencing minor issues on a newer system, such as burner failure or circuit breaker issues, it may be the most cost-effective to simply repair the system.
