Signs You Need a New Water Heater

After years of constant use, your water may eventually wear out or stop performing efficiently. To determine when you need a new water heater, look for these common signs.

  • Water leaks
  • Rust
  • Inefficient
  • Expired warranty
  • Unusual noises
  • Won’t power on

If your hot water heater is over 10-years-old, you may also want to consider replacing it. Generally, conventional tank-type water heaters have an average lifespan of 8 to 12 years while a tankless water heater can typically last for at least 20 years.

Types of Water Heaters

When most people think of a water heater, they picture large, tank-type water heaters. While those are still available, there are a variety of other water heaters available on the market today.

  • Gas water heaters: Gas water heaters use natural gas to generate hot water, therefore they’re generally more cost-efficient. Gas water heaters can come with storage tanks or be tankless.
  • Electric water heaters: These water heaters use electricity as a source of power. Electric water heaters can come with tanks or be tankless.
  • Conventional tank-equipped water heaters: these are the traditional water heaters you see in most homes. They have a tank that stores hot water until it is ready for use. Tank-equipped water heaters come in a variety of sizes capable of storing 30 to 100 gallons of water. For most homeowners, a 40 or 50-gallon sized water heater is just fine.
  • Tankless water heaters: also known as on-demand water heaters have grown in popularity in recent years because they’re energy-efficient and don’t take up a lot of space.
  • Heat pump water heaters: these hybrid water heaters use heat from the air and ground to heat water. Because electricity is used only to move heat, these units use up to 60% less electricity compared to traditional electric water heaters.
  • Solar-powered water heaters: solar-powered water heaters are highly efficient because they rely on energy from the sun to heat water. If you experience many cloudy days, you’ll want to have a backup plan in place.

The Benefits of Installing a New Water Heater

Having a new water installed can add value to your home or commercial space and help reduce your energy costs. Newer models of water heaters are able to heat and distribute water throughout your building using much less energy than water heaters of the past. You can also increase the amount of hot water available for showers, dishwashing, and laundry by investing in a larger-sized water heater or to a new tankless system.
