Ask for a New Water Heater This Holiday Season

Give the Gift of a New Water Heater This Holiday Season

New water heater installation can increase the home’s value, provide more hot water for bathing, and reduce energy usage for lower power bills. In this article, we discuss all of the reasons why a new water heater makes the perfect gift for a homeowner this holiday season.

On average, water heaters need to be replaced every ten to fifteen years. There are warning signs to look out for that the water heater needs repair, such as noises, inability to heat water, or leaks. Doing regular maintenance on the water heater can help extend the system’s longevity and prevent unnecessary repairs.

Warning Signs of Water Heater Malfunction

Homeowners should look out for warning signs that their water heater is malfunctioning. A broken water heater can cause property damage if it leaks. Moisture around the water heater is an indicator that the water heater needs to be replaced.

Other warning signs include loud noises coming from the water heater or nosier operation overall. Here are some more warning signs of a malfunctioning water heater to look out for:

  • Foul-smelling hot water
  • Discolored hot water
  • Increased energy bills
  • Not enough hot water
  • It takes a long time for hot water to turn on
  • Leaks and puddles around the water heater

How to Know When It Is Time for New Water Heater Installation

Because water contains natural minerals, when it is heated in the tank, the minerals can separate into sediment, which builds up over time. When the sediment gets too heavy, it can make a rumbling noise in the tank and eventually cause system damage. Installing a tankless water heater can prevent sediment buildup.

By doing regular maintenance, homeowners can reduce the amount of sediment in the tank to keep it from building up, increasing the longevity of the system. Some parts inside the water heater, such as the valves, will need to be replaced every so often. Catching problems early during routine scheduled maintenance can keep them from developing into a bigger problem that requires replacement.

If the water tank is leaking or needs to be repaired regularly, then it is probably time for a replacement. The cost of repairs over time will add up to the price of a new water heater.

Water heaters can be dangerous if left unrepaired due to the risk of mildew growing, hot temperatures within the system, and accidental slips from puddling water from a leak. Water heater repair should be left up to an experienced technician.
