Water Heater Repair or Replacement 

When a problem arises with your water heater, you may immediately wonder whether it needs repair or replacement. Of course, you want your expensive appliances to last as long as possible, but most people also want to avoid paying for repeated repairs. There are many situations when a repair is possible and other times that replacement makes more sense in the long run. 

Consider these factors to know when to replace your water heater: 

  • Equipment age – The age of your water heater can help you make the decision between repair or replacement. A tank water heater lasts about 10 years and a tankless model can last up to 20 years. If your unit is close to the end of its useful life, replacement may be the best decision. 
  • Cost of the repair – If the repair isn’t very expensive and the water heater is relatively new, repair may be the most cost-effective solution. However, an older unit that needs an expensive repair or has been repaired multiple times already should be replaced.
  • Energy efficiency – Are your utility bills increasing with no change in usage? As water heaters get old, they lose efficiency. Upgrading to a new unit can help you save on monthly utility costs.

Your plumber can inspect your water heater, assess its overall condition, find the reason it isn’t working, and help you decide between repair and replacement. If a new water heater is needed, your plumber can discuss the options for a new unit.

“This is an excellent company that stands by their work and exceeds expectations. I had a difficult situation with the plumbing to my shower and they were able to fix it. Very friendly and the customer service is spectacular.”

Quality Water Heaters for Every Home 

Tank and tankless water heaters in Merced provide a reliable source of hot water, as long as the water heater is the right size for your demand. When buying a water heater with a storage tank, this means selecting a tank that is large enough for your hot water needs but not too big that you are wasting energy keeping the water hot. Tanks are available in a variety of sizes to provide the ideal unit for each home. 

Tankless water heaters don’t have that large storage tank but choosing the right size is still important. The right size for a tankless model depends on how much water you use at a time, known as the flow rate, and how much the water needs to be heated. This is called the temperature rise and it’s the difference between the ground water temperature and the desired temperature of your hot water. Your plumber can perform the calculations to help you find the right size water heater for your home.
