Conventional tank water heaters have a service life of 10-15 years, while modern tankless models can last 20 years or more before declining in performance. Over time, even the most well-maintained units will begin to lose efficiency and develop problems due to normal wear and tear. When you're having trouble with your water heater, it's worth exploring whether repair or replacement is the better option. While a service visit is often enough to restore your hot water supply, in some circumstances installing a new water heater makes better financial sense.
The sole purpose of a water heating system is to create hot water for use in your home. Depending on your daily hot water usage, a water heater that once provided enough hot water may struggle to keep up with your current demands, especially if your needs have changed. Discussing with one of our friendly Comfort Consultants, you can quickly evaluate your water heater's capacity and the volume of hot water your family requires now and may need in the future. If your water heater isn't meeting your needs, upgrading to a new water heater is probably the best choice.
The cost of hot water is a determining factor when deciding whether to repair or replace. If you've noticed that the cost of heating your home's water has been steadily increasing, your water heater is losing efficiency with age, and that most likely can't be corrected by a service call. The best water heating solution for you is the one that provides the amount of hot water your family needs at the lowest cost. As time passes, a water heater loses efficiency through regular use. A new water heater offers you all the benefits of a new unit and the efficiency and reliability advancements that have occurred since your current water heater was installed.
The money you're spending on water heater repairs can help you determine whether it's smarter financially to opt for a new installation over repairing your existing unit. Talk to our Comfort Consultants about the cost of the needed repairs to get your current water heater's working again versus the cost of a new system. If the repair cost is more than half the cost of a new water heater, your home will benefit more from new water heater installation, rather than making extensive repairs to an older unit that may break down again before long.
Also, some types of damage can't be repaired and require system replacement, regardless of the age of your current water heater. If your water heater's tank is leaking, the only solution is to schedule a new water heater installation to replace the unit entirely, as the tank can't be patched.
