When Should I Replace My Water Heater?

In many cases, repairing your water heater is the most cost-effective option. However, just because it’s right for your wallet more often than now doesn’t mean that’s always the case. Knowing when its time to purchase a new unit is important for both your bank account, as well as your homes safety and comfort. Check out the three most common signs that indicate it’s time to replace your water heater.

Your water heater is getting old:

Traditional water heaters are built to last about 10 years, and tankless water heaters are built to last closer to 20 years. Its lifespan can be increased with proper care and routine maintenance, but once it starts to approach the end of its life, the problems will only start to come in faster and more frequently. The cost of repairing bits and pieces as they start to wear down and break will get expensive quickly, and can easily end up being more expensive than a completely new water heater.

Your water heater consistently needs repairs:

Sometimes, your water heater will never reach its expected lifespan. This can be caused by any number of issues, from excessive use to inconsistent maintenance to poor manufacturing, and anything else in between. The general rule is that if the repair costs at least half as much as the unit itself, its better to replace the unit. However, if you have to call for repairs multiple times per year, the cost will pile up past the point where the most economical choice is to install a new water heater.

Water in your home taking longer to heat up:

As your water heater starts to break down, it will take longer to heat up your home’s water. This means you will need to let it run for longer to get it to the temperature you need, which can then in turn start to increase the cost of your water bill. That, plus the fact that your water heater will need to use more energy to heat up the water in the first place means your utility bill will start to spike- this is a key indicator that something is wrong with your water heater.
