Signs That Your Water Heater Is Damaged 

If your water heater suddenly stops working, you know that you need water heater repairs. It’s not always this clear, though.

Some signs that your water heater is not working properly include:

  • You run out of hot water too quickly
  • Your unit takes too long to heat water
  • Your water tank is leaking

Understanding Your Replacement Options

If your water heater cannot be repaired, then it’s time to replace it. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Pomona Valley offers water heater replacement services to help you upgrade to a new and improved unit. We work with a wide range of water heaters. So, you can trust us to help you pick out a unit that suits your home and your needs perfectly. We can discuss your average hot water consumption and your energy-efficiency goals ahead of time. To get started, it is helpful to have a general understanding of the two main types of water heaters.

Conventional Water Heaters

Homeowners have been using conventional water heaters for a long time. These units have a tank to store water and a heating element that is powered via gas or electricity. The water in the tank is continually heated. That way, it is ready to flow through your plumbing system the moment you need it. The amount of water supplied by a conventional unit will be determined by the size of the tank. Once the hot water in the tank empties, you may need to wait for the unit to reheat the water.

Tankless Water Heaters

Tankless water heaters are the hot new thing in the world of water heaters. These units instantly heat water when you turn on your faucet. This gives them the advantage of never running out of hot water. The units are also significantly more compact since they don’t require a large storage tank. On top of that, tankless units are much more energy-efficient than conventional units. The primary drawback is pricing. On average, a tankless water heater will cost more to purchase and install than a conventional unit.

How Long Should a Water Heater Last?

Many homeowners ask us how long they should expect a water heater to last. As a rule of thumb, water heaters will usually last between 10 and 20 years, but the exact lifespan of your unit will vary based on many factors. Your maintenance routine, usage, and water quality can all alter the expected lifespan of your water heater. Everyone will eventually need water heater replacement services, but you can take a few steps to extend the time between installations. One of the biggest factors is maintenance. When your plumbing system is regularly inspected by a team of home service professionals, they will notice impending problems with your water heater early. Catching plumbing repairs as soon as possible is one of the best ways to ensure your water heater doesn’t break down early.
