How Long Does a Water Heater Last?
It would be a dream come true if your household water heater would last as long as your home’s lifetime, but the truth is water heaters have a more limited lifespan. Hiring Mr. Rooter Plumbing of San Joaquin County can help you extend your plumbing appliances’ longevity with preventative maintenance by highly trained service technicians. Manufacturers design and build most residential water heaters to have a lifespan between 11 and 20 years before a home needs to replace its model. Professional repairs ensure your water heater stays in good working condition, but it probably won’t make it past two decades. You can trust our seasoned service technicians to work with you to determine if we need to repair or upgrade your water heater with a new replacement model. A water heater replacement can be a good thing with our company’s affordable installation services at competitive prices. Upgrading to a new, more energy-efficient water heater can also help you lower your monthly utility bills.
The Benefits of a Residential Water Heater Upgrade
While our expert plumbers can repair any residential water heater make and model, replacing your model makes more sense sometimes. Frequent repairs might have you spending more money than your model is worth, or your water heater may be nearing the end of its usefulness. A new water heater will run more efficiently than your old water heater, leading to better savings every month on utility expenses. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of San Joaquin County will gladly ensure your new water heater adheres to federally mandated standards. If your old and antiquated water heater only produces lukewarm water, you need to invest in an upgrade. Our service professionals will recommend ideal water heater options for your home based on how much hot water you need and any space limitations in your home. We replace water heaters with any of the following plumbing fixture types:
- Conventional Water Heaters – Conventional water heaters have large tanks to store water and use electrical or gas energy to heat it. Our technicians install many sizes of conventional tanks and base the model we install on your family’s needs and home’s space limitations. Installing an efficient conventional water heater could lower your water heating bills by as much as 7%.
- Tankless Water Heaters – This newer water heater version is compact and takes up little space in your home. Tankless water heaters produce instant hot water on demand. Homes with space limitations or families who can’t wait for their water heater to heat water can select a tankless water heater and reduce their energy costs by up to 30%.
- Hybrid Water Heaters – Combination water heaters can help households save as much as 60% on their monthly energy bills. Hybrid water heaters combine heat pumps with conventional tank storage water heaters.
