5 Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
Should you replace your water heater completely or have your heater repaired? This question isn’t an easy one to answer for many people. On one hand, most people would rather simply have their heater repaired, as it often far cheaper. However, repairing a water heater may only be delaying the inevitable, and in some cases replacement is the more prudent choice.
Some signs that you might want to replace your water heater rather than repair it, include:
- Rusty colored hot water – If your hot water is rusty, you could have one of two things happening. Either your anode rod is corroding so much that it's contaminating your water, and we can just replace the anode rod. But if the corrosion has spread to the water heater itself, then you should consult our water heater experts.
- Loud rumbling sounds – Not all sounds coming from your water heater mean you need to replace the unit. If you hear snapping or popping coming from your tank, then you've had some sediment build-up and just need a thorough cleaning. But if you hear loud rumbling or grinding sounds then that's another story.
- Not enough hot water – If you keep running out of hot water, then your tank simply isn't big enough and no repair is going to fix that. So either curb your hot water usage, or consult our water heater installation experts about a bigger tank or a tankless water heater.
- Old age – Tank water heaters last on average for 10 years while tankless water heaters will usually last 20 years or more. If your unit is older than its respective life-span you should think twice before throwing more money into a dying unit.
- Repair after repair – At some point another repair call is just throwing money into a dying unit. Our Portland water heater replacement experts should give you a rundown of each repair cost before the repair. And if the repair cost is substantially high for an old unit, you're better off with a new unit.
There is one problem that we never recommend repairing: a leaking tank. Repairing a leak is exceedingly difficult, ruins the energy efficiency of your water heater, and in many cases only fixes the issue for a short time. Before long, another leak will develop, and you’ll have to fix the tank again. For this reason, if your tank is leaking, we will always recommend a replacement right away.
