Types of Water Heaters
There are several types of water heaters that we can install, including:
Traditional Tank Water Heaters
Among the most common types of water heaters, these function by storing water in a heated tank, which then refills after the taps are opened. They can be powered by either electricity or gas and are often the least expensive option available – though they are generally the least energy-efficient as well.
Tankless Water Heaters
Though they represent a pricier initial investment, tankless water heaters are also more efficient and often save homeowners money on monthly utility bills. Rather than using a tank, the water is heated by passing it through a heating element on its way to the tap or shower. One main benefit of this is that you will be able to have endless hot water on demand!
Residential Water Heaters vs. Commercial Water Heaters
Action Plumbing is equipped to handle water heater installation, maintenance, and repair for homes and businesses. The main differences between residential and commercial water heater installations are equipment size and energy requirements.
Our plumbers are fully trained and highly knowledgeable in determining what size and type of water heater would be best suited to the needs and usage of your property. We can advise you on your options, help you decide which to go with, and provide any necessary service and repairs throughout the life of the unit.
How Long Do Water Heaters Last?
Many factors are used to help determine how long your water heater will last.
They can include:
- Its current age
- How well maintained it is
- The water quality
- And the levels of regular use
The most effective way to determine a rough timeline for how long your water heater will last is by determining what type it is. Conventional water heaters have an average lifespan of 10-15 years and a tankless water heater can last up to 20 years, sometimes even longer.
If you think your water heater may be on its last leg, you can keep an eye out for the following signs that your water heater is soon to fail. If you start noticing any of these signs, we highly recommend that you replace your water heater before it fails and causes any damage to your home.
Signs You Need Water Heater Replacement
The following signs point to a need for water heater replacement:
- Age. After your water heater reaches 10, you should keep a closer eye on your unit. You can check the manufacturer's label or the serial number on the side of your water heater to determine its age.
- Loud Rumbling Noises. If you have been hearing loud knocking or banging sounds coming from the unit, it is time for a replacement.
- Rusty Hot Water. If rusty hot water is coming from your faucets, this is an indicator of an issue coming from your water heater tank. It is important to note that if rust shows up in only cold water, then it is more likely a pipe issue.
