Benefits of Installing a Tankless Water Heater
Tankless water heaters are a popular choice because the water is heated on demand. This is not like most water heaters, in which the water is maintained in a water storage reservoir. A new tankless water heater works efficiently, saves space, and ensures your water is always being heated. On average, tankless water heaters are 20-60% more efficient than other models, making them more cost-effective over their life span than other models.

When to Repair or Replace Your Water Heater
If you are 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 water heater plays an important role in deciding whether it’s time for an upgrade. The typical service life of a traditional, tank-style water heater is 10-13 years. If you’re approaching the end of your water heaters’s anticipated service life, it may be most beneficial in the long run to go ahead and replace it. However, if your water heater is still relatively young, repairs are probably the way to go. Water heaters are fairly simple in their construction, which makes its easier for your plumbing technician to diagnose and repair any problems. A few common issues that occur in water heaters include:
- A pilot light that regularly goes out
- The circuit breaker for your electric heater frequently trips
- The burner or heating elements fails
- A broken thermostat
- Valves that keep sticking
Repairs based on these problems are fairly inexpensive and probably wouldn’t warrant buying a new water heater. If you 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 inefficiency.
If you’re still unsure whether you need water heater repairs or replacement, give us a call at 608-661-2843 or contact us online. We’ll thoroughly inspect your home’s water heater and provide you with 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 installation and repair services, we’ve seen and heard a lot from our customers. Which is why we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive from homeowners just like you!
What are the signs my water heater is failing?
Dealing with a dysfunctional water heater is frustrating and can result in expensive repairs if your issues aren’t addressed promptly. Here are some common signs that your water heater needs attention from a professional:
- Lack of hot water. Lack of sufficient hot water is typically the number one indicator 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 plumbing professionals can diagnose the issue and provide prompt and effective solutions.
- 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 which boil and result in odd sounds.
- Cloudy or foul-smelling water. When the aforementioned mineral deposits travel out of the water heater, they appear cloudy and may have a metallic odor and taste. This is not only a symptom of a failing water heater, but can lead to damage to your faucets and fixtures as well.
- 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 is rare that your TPR will fail, it can prove extremely dangerous if it does, resulting in both personal injury and significant property damage.
- Leaking water tank. If water is pooling beneath your tank and the water proves to be coming from the tank and not a valve, it’s most likely due to a leak within the tank’s inner lining. Unfortunately, this will require water tank replacement.
What are common reasons a water heater is not working?
If you water heater isn’t working, here are some common reasons that could be to blame:
- 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 will be able to quickly inspect your water heater and get to the bottom of what’s amiss. If your water heater isn’t working, contact Acid Plumbing today and we’ll send a technician to your home quickly to provide reliable and affordable diagnostic and repair services!
Can I install a water heater myself?
While installing your own water heater isn’t outside the realm of possibility, most homeowners simply don’t have the industry knowledge to complete a proper installation that will ensure the safe and efficient operation of your system. A plumbing professional will have the know-how to perform flawless installation services, thus 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 10-13 years. If your water heater is on the older side and experiencing issues, it may be time to consider a replacement. Likewise, if your water heater is still relatively new, repairs can typically be performed to restore optimal effectiveness and efficiency.
