Signs Your Home Water Heater Needs Repairs or Replacement

Your household water heater has one crucial role: ensuring you have hot water whenever needed. While we don't expect residents of Tacoma and its surrounding areas to be water heater experts, we're here to guide you through some telltale signs that your unit needs servicing. If you're on the hunt for reliable water heater repair services, look no further than Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tacoma. We're committed to outstanding customer service, ready to address any questions you might have, and offer an accurate estimate upon request for your repair costs. Identifying and addressing minor issues as early as possible can prevent significant time, expense, and hassle in the future. Our expertise covers the repair and replacement of gas and electric water heaters, regardless of make or model. Keep an eye out for these indicators that your water heater may need repair or replacement, and don't hesitate to contact us should any of these signs be present in your appliance:

  • Your water heater takes too long to produce hot water.
  • The water tank in your unit is leaking.
  • Your water heater fails to provide sufficient hot water for bathing, laundry, or dishwashing.
  • Unusual or new sounds are coming from your water heater.

What Is a Household Water Heater’s Lifespan?

While it would be ideal for your home's water heater to last as long as your home does, reality dictates otherwise. To enhance the longevity of your plumbing appliances, we suggest enlisting the expertise of Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tacoma for preventative maintenance. Typically, residential water heaters have a lifespan ranging from 11 to 20 years, necessitating eventual replacement. Although professional repairs can maintain your water heater in optimal condition, it's unlikely to function beyond two decades. Our team of licensed and insured service professionals specializes in commercial and residential plumbing services, and we're here to guide you in your plumbing needs. We'll carefully assess whether your water heater can be salvaged through repairs or if an upgrade is a more prudent option. Opting for a new water heater isn't necessarily detrimental. We provide cost-effective installation services, and by choosing a newer, more energy-efficient model, you could significantly reduce your monthly energy expenses.

What Benefits Come With a Home Water Heater Upgrade?

At Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tacoma, we specialize in repairing all types and models of residential water heaters. However, there are instances where opting for a replacement is more beneficial. Continual repairs can become costly, or your current water heater may have reached the end of its operational life. A new, more efficient water heater can significantly reduce your monthly utility expenses by conserving energy. Our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Tacoma is dedicated to ensuring your new water heater meets all federal efficiency standards. If you're experiencing issues with your water heater, such as only producing lukewarm water, it might be time to consider an upgrade. We assess your specific water usage and spatial constraints to recommend the perfect water heater for your needs. Whether you're looking for a tankless, electric, or gas model, we can facilitate the replacement with a high-quality plumbing fixture that suits your requirements. Below, we've described the water heater types we repair and replace:

Conventional Water Heaters

A conventional water heater features a sizable tank for water storage and utilizes either gas or electricity to heat the water. Our team offers installation of various sizes of these tanks, tailored to your specific requirements and the constraints of your space. Opting for an efficient conventional water heater could lower your heating bills by as much as seven percent.

Tankless Water Heaters

The latest model of a household water heater features a compact design, making it an ideal choice for those with limited space. Unlike traditional models, tankless water heaters deliver hot water immediately and only when needed. For those who prefer not to wait for water to heat up and are looking to reduce their energy expenses, opting for a tankless water heater can lead to savings of up to 30 percent on energy bills.

Hybrid Water Heaters

A hybrid water heater can slash your monthly energy expenses by up to 60 percent. By merging the traditional tank storage heater with a heat pump, these innovative devices offer a cost-effective and efficient solution for heating water.
