Plumber Tip: Signs You Need to Replace Your Water Heater

Monday, February 18th, 2013

Are you wondering if it is time to replace your water heater? Call the Orlando plumbers at Modern Plumbing Industries, Inc. (MPI). We install and replace a wide selection of water heater models, including tank and tankless systems. Call us if you would like to set up a consultation. Here are some warning signs that your water heater should be replaced.

Is your water heater not heating up the water in your home as quickly as it used to? While this may be a sign of a tune-up or repair service, it may be more cost-effective to replace it if it is an older water heater. Can you tell that there has been an increase in recovery time? If your hot water demands have not changed, you may need a water heater repair or replacement depending on the cause of the issue. If there’s no hot water in your home, give it some time to heat up again, but if it still doesn’t provide any hot water, call a plumber. If you do decide that you need a new one, we can make recommendations for the right model for your hot water needs.

Another factor to consider is age and efficiency. If your water heater is older than 10 years old, then it may be time for an upgrade to a more efficient model. Other factors are constant or major leaks, and if the tank on your water heater has a lot of damage from corrosion, the tank will need to be replaced most likely. While there is the initial investment to consider, replacing older water heaters with a more energy-efficient model can save you money in the long run on energy savings. You may also want to consider upgrading to a tankless water heater if you have a traditional tank model.
