Is It Time to Replace Your Water Heater?

water heaters davidson county, nc Winters are tough on water heaters. The water starts off colder because the water supply is colder during the winter months, so your water heater has to work harder to get the water to the desired temperature. Your basement is also colder, so water heaters with a storage tank need to work harder to maintain the desired water temperature. Finally, chances are you use more hot water when it’s cold out. Most people tend to take longer and hotter showers when it’s cold out. All that has added up to a lot of work for your water heater.

Now that the weather is milder, it’s a good time to give your water heater some attention with a maintenance visit.

Is It Time to Replace Your Water Heater?

Age is one of the biggest factors for determining whether you should replace your water heater. If your water heater is older than 10 years old, an upgrade is probably a good idea. And you’ll reap the benefits of an upgrade from day one. Your new water heater will be significantly more energy efficient than your old one, so you’ll start saving money on your energy bill the first time you use it. The upfront cost of the new unit will save you money in the long run. Plus, by choosing a tankless water heater, in addition to having an endless supply of hot water on demand, you won’t have to worry about tank corrosion or leaks.

Water Heater Maintenance To-Do List

Performing a bit of water heater maintenance on a yearly basis can help the longevity of your water heater and help maintain its efficiency as well.

Basic water heater maintenance:

  1. Check the pressure-relief valve and replace it if necessary.
  2. Drain the tank to get rid of sediment buildup. Unaddressed sediment buildup will shorten the life expectancy of your water heater. It will also decrease its efficiency.
