When to Replace Your Water Heater

There are two different situations that we run into when we receive calls for a water heater replacement. First, let’s look at the more unfortunate of the two. This is when a water heater fails entirely.

Sometimes it’s a tankless water heater that will no longer heat water effectively, or that won’t come on at all. More frequently it is a case of a homeowner going to put in a load of laundry, only to find that their storage tank water heater is leaking all over the floor. In either case, you want to have the replacement — if necessary in the first scenario, and always necessary in the case of a ruptured tank — completed as soon as possible.

If you notice the problem later in the day, and you think that you can get through the night before scheduling service in the morning, be sure to shut off water to the water heater. There is a valve on the incoming water line that will allow you to do so. That way, the tank won’t constantly be replenishing itself as it continues to leak. You’ll go through a number of towels, but it will get you through the night. Once you give us a call, we’ll work out a time that is both prompt and convenient for you.

Ideally, your water heater will be replaced before this happens, though. Keep an eye out for warning signs, like advanced age, reduced heating capacity, increasing bills, etc. While it may seem counterintuitive to replace such an appliance when it is still operational, the fact is that the convenience and efficiency benefits of doing so make it very worthwhile.
