Signs It's Time for a Water Heater Upgrade
While we'll always do our best to repair or maintain your existing water heater, there comes a time when it's better to replace the system with a newer model.
If you're experiencing any of these signs, it may be time for an upgrade:
- Your water heater is older than 10 years
- You're seeing high energy bills
- The tank is leaking from multiple areas
- Your hot water supply is running out too quickly
- The temperature isn't consistent throughout your home
When you're ready to upgrade, our team of experienced Greenville water heater plumbers will ensure the job is done correctly. We'll help you choose a new system that fits your household's needs and budget and complete a professional installation to ensure your new system is working correctly.
Deciding Between Water Heater Repair or Replacement?
Should you repair or replace your water heater? In most cases, it depends on the age and condition of the system. If you're noticing any signs of failure and your water heater is older than 10 years, it's time to move ahead with a replacement.
On the other hand, if your system is newer and only suffers from minor issues, like a leaky tank or incorrect temperature settings, then some minor repairs or maintenance should be all that's needed.
The best way to determine what's best for your water heater is to contact local plumbers for help. At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Greenville, we'll inspect and diagnose the problem, explain your options, and help you decide which course of action is best.
