Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater

Tankless water heaters are popular because the water is heated on demand. This isn’t like traditional water heaters, where the water is maintained in a water storage tank. Here are a few reasons why this benefits our customers:

  • New tankless water heaters save space since they’re much smaller than traditional models.
  • Tankless options ensure your water is always heated when you need it.
  • Since they heat water on demand, tankless water heaters are 20% to 60% more efficient than other models, which means lower utility bills for you over their life span.
  • Tankless options last 2 to 3 times longer than tank water heaters, saving you money in the long run.

When To Repair or Replace Your Water Heater

If you’re weighing the decision to repair or replace your home’s water heater, there are a few things to keep in mind. The age of your system plays an important role in deciding whether it’s time for an upgrade.

Replacement is best if…

The typical service life of a traditional, tank-style water heater is 10 to 13 years. If you’re approaching the end of your water heater’s anticipated service life, it may be best to replace it.

Repairs are best if…

If your water heater is still relatively young, repairs are probably best. Water heaters are fairly simple in their construction, which makes it easier for your plumbing technician to diagnose and repair any problems.

A few common water heater issues include:

  • A pilot light regularly goes out.
  • The circuit breaker for your electric heater frequently trips.
  • The burner or heating elements fail.
  • The thermostat is broken.
  • The valves keep sticking.

Repairs based on these problems are fairly inexpensive and probably wouldn’t warrant buying a new water heater. If your water heater has sprung a leak, however, repairs may not be an option.

One simple way to prevent leaks in your water heater, thus extending its service life for as long as possible, is to routinely drain your tank to remove any sediment buildup that could cause damage or issues with inefficiencies.

If you’re still not sure whether you need repairs or replacement, call us today. We’ll provide the information and solutions you need to make your decision. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Our Water Heater Services

When it comes to professional water heater installations and repairs, we’ve seen and heard a lot from our customers. That’s why we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we get from homeowners.

What are the signs my water heater is failing?

A dysfunctional water heater is frustrating and can result in expensive repairs if the issues aren’t addressed promptly. Here are some common signs that your water heater needs attention from a professional:

  1. Lack of hot water: Lack of sufficient hot water is typically the biggest sign that your water heater needs repairs. The culprit could range from sediment buildup to a faulty dip tube. Whatever is behind your lack of hot water, our plumbers can diagnose the issue and provide prompt and effective solutions.
  2. You hear popping or rumbling noises: These noises can be caused by mineral deposits that build up in your tank and include pockets of air that boil and result in odd sounds.
  3. Cloudy or foul-smelling water: When the mineral deposits travel out of the water heater, they appear cloudy and may have a metallic odor and taste. This is a symptom of a failing water heater and can damage your faucets and fixtures.
  4. Leaky or faulty pressure relief valve: Your water heater’s temperature and pressure relief valve (TPR) releases pressure to keep it from getting dangerously high. While it’s rare that your TPR will fail, it can be extremely dangerous if it does, resulting in personal injury and significant property damage.
  5. Leaking water tank: If water is pooling beneath your tank and it’s coming from the tank and not a valve, it’s most likely due to a leak in the tank’s inner lining. Unfortunately, this requires water tank replacement.

What are common reasons a water heater isn’t working?

If your water heater isn’t working, these are some common reasons:

  • Lack of power or gas
  • Thermostat issues
  • Failed pilot light
  • Clogged flame sensor
  • Temperature and pressure relief valve problems
  • Loss of water pressure
  • Loose or ill-fitting parts

Your plumbing professional can quickly inspect your water heater and determine what’s wrong. If your water heater isn’t working, contact Avid Plumbing, and we’ll promptly send a technician to provide reliable and affordable diagnostics and repairs.

Can I install a water heater myself?

While installing your own water heater isn’t impossible, most homeowners don’t have the industry knowledge to complete a proper installation that will ensure your system’s safe and efficient operation.

A plumbing professional will have the know-how to perform a flawless installation, guaranteeing you get the maximum service life out of your new water heater.

How long should a water heater last?

Water heaters were constructed to have an approximate service life of 10 to 13 years. If your water heater is older and having issues, it may be time for a replacement. Likewise, if your water heater is still relatively new, repairs can typically be performed to restore optimal function and efficiency.
