How Long Does a Water Heater Last?
Having your residential water heater last as long as your home would be an ideal situation, but it’s not a realistic expectation. You can hire Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Winston Salem to perform preventative maintenance to help you extend plumbing appliances’ lifespans. Manufacturers design most household water heaters with a lifespan of between 11 and 20 years before a replacement is necessary. We can ensure your water heater stays in good working order with professional repairs, but repairs probably won’t help your water heater last longer than about 20 years. Our highly trained and seasoned service professionals know all about water heaters and can help you determine if upgrading or repairing your water heater is the best option. Replacing a residential water heater can sometimes be a good thing with our company’s affordable installation services. Upgrading to a newer model with better energy efficiency can also help you reduce your monthly energy bills.
The Benefits of a Home Water Heater Upgrade
While our service professionals can quickly and efficiently repair any residential water heater make and model, a replacement may be the better choice for your specific situation. Spending on frequent repairs can put a strain on your finances, or your water heater may have outlived its useful lifespan and can’t support your hot water needs anymore. A new water heater offers better efficiency than your old model and helps you save money on your monthly utility costs. Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Winston Salem is available to install your new appliance and ensure it complies with federally mandated standards. If you deal with lukewarm showers because of an outdated water heater, an upgrade may be your best option. We work with you and consider your unique space and hot water demands to recommend an ideal water heater for your home. Our water heater replacement services apply to various plumbing fixture types, including the following:
- Conventional Water Heaters – Traditional or conventional water heaters store water in a large tank and heat it using gas or electrical energy. Our service professionals install various conventional tank sizes based on your hot water needs and your home’s space limitations. You can reduce your monthly heating bills by as much as 7% with an efficient conventional water heater.
- Tankless Water Heaters – This newer water heater version is more compact than other options and takes up much less space. Tankless water heaters provide instant hot water whenever you demand it. Homes with space limitations or families that can’t wait for a water tank to heat up may choose a tankless water heater and drop their energy costs by up to 30%.
- Hybrid Water Heaters – A combination or hybrid water heater combines a heat pump with a conventional tank storage water heater and can help households save up to 60% on their energy costs.
