Your water heater works harder than virtually any other appliance in your home. However, because water heaters are usually kept out of sight, they often get neglected and aren’t properly maintained. This can lead to numerous problems ranging from inefficiency to complete failure. When your water heater isn’t functioning properly, Coastal Plumbing Aliso Viejo is here to help with affordable water heater services.
Signs You Need to Replace Your Water Heater
A typical water heater is meant to last 10 to 15 years before it should be replaced. Even before this time though, you may experience problems with your water heater. Problems are more likely if you have hard water or if you do not take steps to maintain your water heater, such as routinely draining the tank and removing sediment. As your water heater ages, it can succumb to corrosion, damage from hard water, and mechanical failure. Here are just some of the signs that your water heater needs to be replaced:
• Your water heater is more than 10 years old
• You see corrosion on the water heater
• Your hot water has a metallic taste to it
• Your water heater is making strange noises
• Your water heater is leaking
• You want to reduce your utility bills by going green
Many problems with water heaters can be repaired. However, depending on the age of your water heater and the problem, it might not be worth it to repair the water heater. A new water heater will likely be costlier than repair services, but newer water heaters have benefits like using significantly less electricity and having greater capacities. You also are saved the trouble of future repairs, so replacing instead of repairing your water heater can pay off in the long run.
Types of Water Heaters
Our plumbers are licensed and trained to install all types of water heaters, including:
• Electric water heaters
• Gas water heaters
• On-demand water heaters (tankless)
• Hybrid water heaters (tank and on-demand)
• Solar water heaters
Conventional water heaters use tanks for storing heated water. This method is not very eco-friendly because the water will lose heat, so the water heater must constantly work to reheat the water. Thanks to innovations like better insulation, newer models of tank water heaters are much more efficient than older models. However, the best solution for many homeowners is usually a tankless on-demand water heater. These water heaters will create water as you need it. Tankless water heaters have become much more affordable in recent years. They can significantly reduce your utility bills, and thus are a good investment. Other eco-friendly options for water heaters include hybrid models and solar water heaters.
