Should My Water Heater Be Repaired or Replaced?

Having your water heater repaired or replaced depends on a couple of factors.

You'll want to consider:

  • The repair costs
  • Your water heater's age

What are the signs your water heater needs to be replaced?

There are several signs that indicate your water heater may need to be replaced. Here are some common indicators:

  • Age: Water heaters typically have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. If your unit is approaching or exceeding this range, it may be time for a replacement.
  • Inadequate hot water: If you notice a decrease in the amount of hot water available or the water doesn't get as hot as it used to, it could indicate a problem with your water heater.
  • Rusty or discolored water: If the hot water coming out of your faucets has a rusty or brownish color, it could mean that your water heater is corroding on the inside and needs attention.
  • Leaks or puddles: Any signs of leakage around the water heater should not be ignored. Even minor leaks can indicate a problem and may require a replacement.
  • Strange noises: If you hear popping, cracking, rumbling, or other unusual noises coming from your water heater, it could mean that sediment has built up inside the tank, affecting its efficiency.
  • Increased energy bills: A malfunctioning water heater may require more energy to heat water, resulting in higher utility bills. If you notice a sudden and unexplained increase in energy costs, your water heater could be the culprit.
  • Frequent repairs: If you find yourself frequently calling for repairs and the issues continue to persist, it might be more cost-effective to replace the unit instead of spending money on repeated repairs.

Remember that these signs may vary depending on the type of water heater you have (e.g., tankless, storage tank) and its specific condition. It's always a good idea to consult a professional plumber or technician like our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of San Francisco to assess the situation and provide appropriate recommendations.

How Much Are Repair Costs?

First - how expensive are the repairs? If the repairs are more than half the cost of a new water heater, having it replaced will probably be more beneficial.

How Old is Your Water Heater?

Did you know that water heaters typically last between 8 to 12 years?

As such, if your water heater is over 10 years old, you'll likely be better off having it replaced.
