Is It Better to Repair or Replace My Water Heater?

Stop Googling “is it better to repair or replace my water heater" and just call us! Most hot water heaters last 11-20 years if well maintained and properly installed. When we're determining if you need gas or electric water heater repair or replacement, we’ll consider these factors:

  • The age of your water heater
  • Whether it’s been well-maintained
  • How often has it been repaired
  • Whether your water heating bills have increased
  • If it provides enough hot water to meet your family’s needs
  • Where it was installed and whether it was installed correctly

We'll never recommend a product or service you don't need. We care about our customers' time and money, so we always operate with integrity and transparency. We will only recommend gas or electric water heater repair or replacement if it is cost-effective, saves you money on your energy bills, and will make your family safer and more comfortable.

Gas & Electric Water Heater Repair or Replacement

If we determine that you need gas or electric water heater repair or replacement, we will do everything possible to get the job done that same day. We can help you decide which of the following types of hot water heaters is best for your family's budget, needs, and lifestyle:

  • Conventional - A conventional water heater has a storage tank holding 30-60 gallons of water. It heats water with electricity, propane, natural gas, or fuel oil and stores the hot water in the tank until you need it. If you install a high-efficiency conventional water heater, you might lower your water heating costs by up to 7%.
  • Tankless - A tankless water heater doesn't store water in a tank. Instead, it uses a heat exchanger to rapidly heat the water on demand, using electricity or natural gas. If you choose to install a tankless water heater, you might see a reduction of up to 30% in your water heating costs.
  • Hybrid - A hybrid water heater has a tank but uses an electric heat pump to heat the water. A heat pump transfers warm air from outside the tank to the inside, heating the water through heat transference. Installing a hybrid water heater could save you up to 60% on your water heating costs.
