Replacement vs. Repair
Deciding whether to replace or repair your current water system? Most heaters have a life expectancy of 11-20 years, although unexpected breakdowns and repairs can affect this number. When it comes to replacement, Mr. Rooter recommends the 50 percent rule. If your heater has accumulated almost 50 percent of its original cost in repairs, then you’ll want to look at finding a replacement. Our plumbers will help inspect your home and work alongside you to find a model that will work best for your home. Some of our most common types of heaters include:
Conventional- Liquid is stored in a large tank (depending on the size of your house) and heated by either gas or electric energy. Models with high efficiency can help reduce your monthly heating bills by almost 7 percent.
Tankless- With a tankless system, water is only heated as needed, allowing unlimited access. This option can reduce bills by as much as 30 percent.
Hybrid- This model combines a conventional tank with a heat pump and will reduce heating costs by as much as 60 percent, by far the highest amount of all three options.
