Water Heater Repair or Replacement
You might start to see a couple of common signs when your water heater is struggling to perform. If any of these things are happening, it might be time to explore a water heater replacement:
- Unusual noises
- Sediment build-up
- Tank leaks
- A unit that is more than seven years old
Installing a new water heater can improve your home’s energy efficiency and ensure your comfort. More recently, manufactured water heaters are often made with technology intended to be environmentally friendly. This step forward in efficiency decreases your carbon footprint and can even reduce your utility bills.
Tankless Water Heaters
When it’s time to replace your water heater, tankless water heaters are a great option. These heaters provide a constant supply of hot water, heating the water as you use it, which likely will save you money. In comparison, a traditional water heater has to keep a large amount of water at a hot temperature waiting in a tank until you need it. As the tank cools, the water has to be constantly reheated.
Tankless water heaters also tend to last a lot longer than traditional hot water units do. While the upfront costs for a tankless water heater can be slightly higher than a conventional model, this often pays off in the long run, as tankless water heaters last longer. Also, there is no tank to fail with a tankless water heater, so there is a reduced chance of future leaks in your home.
How a Tankless Water Heater Works
When you turn on the hot water in your sink, a flow sensor detects water coming into the heater, signaling to the control panel that hot water is needed. This control panel opens a valve and sends water to a heat exchanger, where the water is heated. A temperature sensor ensures that the water gets to a preset temperature and does not exceed the settings.
Cost of a Tankless Water Heater
There are several options to choose from when it comes to tankless water heater installation or replacement. Individual unit prices will vary. Our staff will assist you in understanding all of the costs associated with water heater replacement. The unit itself is a factor, along with any permits required by your local municipality and additional installation materials and labor.
Besides, if you opt to change fuel sources when you install a new unit, there could be additional fees to prepare your home to make the switch. When considering costs, you should always compare the general costs of electricity and natural gas in your local area.
Tankless Water Heaters Deliver Big Energy Savings
Tankless water heaters are much more energy-efficient than tank water heaters. Over the lifetime of your tank, this translates to substantial savings on your utility bills. Even if they are more expensive to install, a tankless water heater will save you much more on energy bills over the time you have it.
The simple reason why tankless water heaters are more efficient is that they don’t have hot water sitting around all the time. Even though water heater tanks are efficient, they still lose heat to their surroundings. Tankless water heaters heat water as you need it, completely eliminating this loss.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is the Leaking Pipe on the Side a Problem?
This is the pipe leading to the tank’s relief valve, the valve that releases heat and pressure when there’s too much. Some water is normal, but call a plumber if there’s a lot.
Why Is My Hot Water So Slow?
Hot water travels through pipes in your home to the tap. Far away taps take longer. One possible solution is installing a recirculation pump to maintain ready supply.
Why Do I Hear a Sizzling Drip Sound?
With gas heaters, you might hear an occasional sizzle. This is due to moisture in the air condensing and dripping back down. If it keeps happening frequently, call a plumber.
How Can I Save on Water Heating?
You can lower your hot water temperature to 120° without a noticeable difference. Your tank could need a sediment flush for efficiency. To save even more, go tankless for your next water heater replacement.
