Should I Repair or Replace My Old Water Heater?

Should I Repair or Replace My Old Water Heater?“Should I repair or replace my old water heater?” is a question we hear a lot. This decision depends on several factors. If your old water heater is only two or three years old, you should contact an expert to repair the problem or replace a wornout part. However, if your waterheater is more than 10 years old, you may need to have it replaced. A professional can take a look at your heater and offer you a sound opinion as to whether it is more feasible to have it repaired or replaced. Another way to tell if you need a new unit is by the temperature of your water. Your heater should produce extremely hot water, whether the water emanates from your kitchen sink, bathroom sink or shower. Tepid water may indicate that you need to buy a new heater or tank.

Note that you may save money on your energy bill if you buy a gas model instead of an electric model. You also have the option to choose one of the newer tankless water heater models that can help you to save money on heating your water. If you do want to switch to tankless, we recommend Noritz for their superior performance and reliability.
