Repair vs. Replacement

Knowing whether it’s time to repair or replace your water heater can be tricky! A good rule to follow is if your repair costs have added up to nearly half of what it costs to purchase a new unit, then it’s time to replace. Replacing your old unit should give you cleaner, warmer water, with lower utility bills.

Signs that Your Water Heater Needs Replacement

Look for the following signs to determine whether or not your water heater needs to be replaced:

  • Significant rust or corrosion
  • A large leak in the tank
  • No more hot water
  • A broken drain valve
  • Unit is 6-10 years old

If your water heater meets any of the above warning signs, then it is most likely time for a replacement.

Benefits of a New Water Heater

Although nothing may appear to be wrong with your water heater on the outside, your unit may not be running at maximum efficiency. A new water heater can save you money on utility bills and provide your home with consistently warm water. By replacing your unit, you can often expect:

  • Lower monthly utility bills
  • Cleaner water
  • Limitless amounts of hot water (with a tankless model)
  • Money saved on repair fees
