    High Quality Water Heaters

    Whether to opt for water heater repair or new water heater installation depends on your equipment’s age and the cost of the repair. If the water heater is younger than 10 years, we’ll usually recommend fixing it. The exception is when the repair will cost 50% or more of the price of a new one. If your water heater is older than 10 years, then you should probably replace it. You’re only going to have to deal with more repairs in the near future.

    Flushing water heaters is among the most common repairs. It removes sediment and mineral buildup, which are the cause of many water heater issues. If you’re experiencing serious problems with rust and limescale, it may be necessary to replace the anode rod. Other parts that might fail over time include the valves, thermostat, and heating element.

    If you want to replace your water heater, you have the choice of either a tank or tankless model. In addition, you have the option of either an electric or a gas water heater. Our plumbers also perform conversions. This can be useful, for instance, if your home has recently gained access to a natural gas line.

    The typical tank water heater has a 40- to 50-gallon tank, but smaller or larger tanks are readily available. A tankless water heater will cost more up-front. The advantages, however, are lower costs in the long term and a virtually endless supply of hot water.

    Watch for signs you need water heater replacement:
    • Frequent repairs
    • Rising energy costs
    • Discolored hot water
    • Weak hot water pressure
    • Often running out of hot water
