Water Heater Issues That Require Repairs

From time to time, your water heater will encounter issues that require repairs. Some common problems can include:

  • Lack of hot water: One of the most noticeable issues with your system is a lack of hot water. For gas-powered units, this can be caused by an extinguished pilot light that needs to be relit. It could also indicate a damaged heating element.
  • Leaking: An expert should inspect the leak to determine if it can be repaired or if the unit should be replaced.
  • Excessive noise: Loud or unusual noises can signal a damaged heating element or a buildup of sediment inside the unit that needs to be professionally removed.
  • Cracks: Cracks should be inspected by a professional to see if they can be repaired or if the unit needs to be replaced.

What To Expect During Water Heater Installations

When you need a new water heater installed at your home, it’s important to know what to expect. Some items to be aware of in each type of installation are:

  • Tank to Tank System Installations: Replacing a gas or electric water tank with a similar model can take around 2 to 3 hours. First, the technician will drain the old tank, which can take up to an hour. Then the expert will disconnect and remove the old unit. Next, he or she will put the new system in and hook it up. This can take about an hour to verify it’s connected correctly and functioning.
  • Tank to Tankless Installation: When switching from a traditional tank unit to a tankless one, the installation process can take longer than a tank-to-tank installation. The installer will need to create new lines and air vents. Once the lines are in place, the unit then needs to be mounted.
  • Tankless to Tankless Installation: If you are replacing your existing tankless unit with a new one, this is simpler than a tank-to-tankless installation. This process can take between 1 to 3 hours.

When To Replace a Water Heater

To avoid being left without hot water in your house, it’s important to watch for signs that can signal you need to replace your system. Some signs to watch for include:

  • Age: If your unit is getting older. These systems typically last between 10 to 20 years, depending on the make, model, and upkeep.
  • Losing efficiency: If your system is losing efficiency and needs to work too hard to function.
  • Rust and corrosion: If you notice rust or corrosion on the unit, or rust in the water.
  • Leaking: If there are leaks coming from the unit.
  • Water is not warm enough: The system is no longer able to properly heat the water.
  • Cracks: There are cracks in the tank or in the system.

Tank Water Heaters vs. Tankless Systems

When you need a new water heater installed in your house, you need to select between a traditional tank unit or a tankless system. When deciding which is best for your home, take a look at these comparisons:

  • Cost: A tankless unit can initially cost more to install than a traditional unit. This is because it can be a larger installation project to install a tankless system. However, these units cost less to operate and can save you money on your energy bills.
  • Lifespan: A tank unit will last between 10 to 15 years. A tankless unit can last much longer, up to 20 to 30 years if it is properly maintained.
  • Installation Requirements: Because tank units are larger, you will need a bigger space to install the unit than tankless systems require. Tankless units can be installed on a wall.
  • Hot Water Usage: While tank water heaters have a reserve of hot water in their tanks, tankless units provide hot water on demand. This means you’ll never run out of hot water.
