The decision to repair or replace your water heater depends on several factors.
Here are some considerations to help you make an informed decision:
- Age of the Water Heater. If your water heater is nearing or exceeding its expected lifespan (around 8-12 years), it may be more cost-effective to replace it. Older units are more prone to developing multiple issues over time.
- Cost of Repair. Evaluate the cost of the repair compared to the cost of a new water heater. If the repair is relatively minor and significantly cheaper than a replacement, it may be worth repairing. However, if the repair cost is close to or exceeds the cost of a new unit, replacement may be the better option.
- Energy Efficiency. Consider the energy efficiency of your current water heater. Newer models are more energy-efficient, which can result in long-term cost savings on your utility bills. If your current unit is inefficient, it may be wise to replace it.
- Frequency of Repairs. If your water heater requires frequent repairs or has a history of recurring issues, it may be a sign that it is reaching the end of its lifespan. In such cases, replacing the unit can provide a more reliable and hassle-free solution.
