Signs of a Failing Water Heater
Water heaters tell you it’s time for replacement with water temperature and quality problems. If any of these issues force you to put your water heater repair technician on speed dial, you may need a new water heater:
- Waiting longer than usual for the water to heat up
- Alternating hot and cold water
- Rust-colored or tinted water
- Foul odors in your water
- A metallic taste when drinking water
- Strange noises coming from your water heater
What Causes Noises in a Water Heater?
If your water heater makes a racket when it kicks on, you may have sediment buildup. When too much sediment builds up, it can break apart and send chunks flying into the sides of your water heater. Besides being noisy, this may cause tiny cracks in your tank, leading to leaks.
A leaking tank robs you of hot water while potentially causing water damage to your floor. Too much leaking water may result in damage under your house, requiring you to need replacement ductwork. A new water heater helps you avoid extra costs across the board.
New Water Heater Benefits
Many homeowners may wait until the last minute before purchasing a new water heater. These benefits of a new water heater installation may help you make your decision:
You’ll notice the effects of a new water heater the first time you use it. When you don’t have to wait for the water to heat up or rush to finish using it before it turns cold, water heater installation can change your life.
Modern water heaters can use up to 50% less energy than the one you currently have installed. Besides saving you money on costly repairs, you’ll enjoy the results on your next energy bill.
A new water heater enables you to enjoy near-instant access to hot water. With modern technology, traditional or tankless water heaters provide hot water right when you twist the knob.
How Much Do Water Heaters Cost?
The installation cost of a new water heater depends on your fuel type, whether it requires a tank, and if so, what size tank you need.
Electric water heaters cost less than gas or tankless water heaters but come with fewer benefits than the other types.
Gas-heated water tanks cost more to install than electric water heaters. If you don’t already use gas to power your water heater but have it available, you’ll need to have gas lines run and a pilot light installed.
Tankless water heaters provide the most benefits over time but cost the most for the unit and its installation. However, its benefits often outweigh the initial cost.
Which Water Heater Should I Install?
If you prefer having a tank full of hot water readily available, a conventional storage tank water heater will meet your needs.
Electric water heaters with tanks take up less space than gas-powered water heaters and cost less for installation. They won’t work during a power outage, however, and the electricity use raises your energy costs.
As long as the pilot light on a gas water heater stays lit, you can enjoy hot water anytime, even during power outages. Gas water heaters usually require more maintenance, and installing them costs more than electric water heaters.
Tankless water heaters offer the best energy efficiency since they only heat water as you use it. While these water heaters don’t work during a power outage, they use the least energy of any water heater type.
