3 Signs To Replace Your Water Heater

TPP Blog Regardless of the season, Kentucky homeowners rely on access to hot water for everyday tasks from cooking and dishes to laundry and bathing. That’s why it’s critical to have a water heater that operates at peak performance. When your water heater is no longer working properly, you may find yourself wondering if you need repairs or if it’s time for a replacement. In this blog, the plumber experts at GreenBox Home Services will discuss the three signs that it’s time to install a new water heater. Get honest advice from our experts by calling (859) 278-0281 to schedule service in Lexington.

Can’t Keep Up With Daily Needs

If you have to limit your hot water usage for showers or avoid running dishes and laundry at the same time, it may be time to upsize your system. A new water heater with a larger tank will help ensure that you have enough hot water for all your daily activities. In general, we recommend at least a 40-gallon tank for families of three or four, but even couples may find that they need a tank this large to keep up with demand. Just remember that a larger tank will mean greater operating costs. If you’re ready to invest in a more sophisticated system, replace your standard unit with a tankless water heater. These systems never run out of hot water and are highly energy-efficient.

Rusted or Leaking Unit

Rust in your water or around your unit is a sign of corrosion and can’t be fixed. In addition, rust is typically a precursor to leaks. A leaking water heater will not only waste water but can cause significant water damage to your home. While some leaks can be solved by simply tightening connections, most lead to a necessary replacement. If you see rust on your water heater, schedule an appointment with GreenBox by calling (859) 278-0281.

No Hot Water

If your water heater fails, this may also mean it’s time for a replacement. There are a variety of reasons why the system may not be providing hot water. Some issues may be repairable, like pilot light issues, gas valve failures, or electrical issues, but many will require a full replacement. Issues like leaks, corrosion, major damage, and age can’t be fixed or require an expensive enough repair that a replacement is a more cost-effective choice.

Unlike a fairly simple tank system, a tankless water heater has many more components thanks to its intricate process for heating water. With a more complex structure, the price goes up.
A gas water heater will last anywhere from eight to 12 years, whereas an electric system will last 10 to 15 years.
