Water Heater Repair vs. Water Heater Replacement

In general, a water heater should work for between 11 and 20 years. The lifespan of your water heater, as well as how efficiently and effectively it works for your household, depends on several different factors. If you aren’t sure if you need water heater repair or water heater replacement, we can guide you through the process of choosing one. We won’t ever recommend a product or service you don’t need, and we’ll only suggest new water heater installation if it will be more cost-effective or serve your household's needs better than repairing your existing water heater. When deciding between water heater repair and water heater replacement, we will consider:

  • The size of your household
  • Your daily hot water needs
  • Where your existing water heater is installed
  • The cost and availability of fuel and your current water heating bills
  • The maintenance your water heater has received
  • How many repairs it has undergone?
  • Future repairs it might need, and how much they will cost
  • Your budget and lifestyle

Our Water Heater Installation Services

If we do recommend a new water heater installation, we can help you decide between a natural gas, fuel oil, propane, or electric water heater replacement. We can install these types of new water heaters:

  • Conventional/Standard Water Heaters - A conventional or standard storage-tank water heater can usually store between 30-60 gallons of hot water in a tank. It dispenses this hot water as you use it and then heats up more using natural gas, fuel oil, propane, or electricity. If you choose a standard water heater you might see up to a 7% reduction in your water heating costs.
  • Tankless/On-Demand Water Heaters - A tankless water heater, sometimes called an on-demand water heater, don’t store hot water in a tank. Instead, it heats water as needed when it passes through the unit. Its heat exchanger uses electricity, natural gas, or propane. If you choose a tankless water heater you may see up to a 30% reduction in your water heating costs.
  • Hybrid/Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters - If you are set on an electric water heater replacement, you might consider a hybrid water heater. A hybrid water heater uses an electric heat pump to heat water by transferring warm air from outside the unit into the water. If you choose a hybrid water heater, you might see up to a 60% reduction in your water heating costs.

Once we install a new water heater, we recommend that you keep up with regular water heater maintenance. This will extend the lifespan of your new water heater, lower your water heating bills, and save you money over time. Our Advantage Plan can help you schedule routine water heater maintenance that may prevent future problems with your water heater’s operation.

Choosing Between Gas and Electric Water Heater Replacement

If you can install either a natural gas or electric water heater replacement in your home, we can help you decide which one will work best for your budget and your household’s needs. In general, depending on the cost of fuel in your area, gas water heaters cost less to operate. They often also use more energy, however, and may not last as long as an electric water heater. High-efficiency electric water heaters can save you money on your water heating costs and tend to last longer.
