Most people don’t think about their water heater until they need hot water and there isn’t any. If this happens to you, Piqua Plumbing is here to help. As Piqua and Troy, OH’s go-to company for plumbing problems, these experts know that there are many things to consider when you’re trying to determine whether you should repair or replace your water heater, and they’re here to help you make an informed decision.
A good water heater will usually last you about eight or nine years. If it’s well maintained, it may last up to 10 years. After it reaches its limit, it may fail to produce hot water, start to leak, and give you a whole host of headaches you don't need. These can be expensive headaches, considering a water heater represents about 15% of your utility bill each month!
If you’ve had your conventional storage tank water heater for less than ten years, you might have some serviceable years still left on it, but it’s important to do the math. Are the costs associated with the repairs less than 50% of the costs of a new heater? If so, repairing your water heater might be an option.
On the other hand, is your water heater giving you trouble after 10 to 13 years? Does it leak? If so, a replacement is theclearchoice. Newer models are usually more efficient and could save you up to $700 in energy costs over the life of the unit.
