Reasons for Replacing a Hot Water Heater

Like any plumbing device or fixture, your water heater won’t last forever. While you can extend its lifespan by practicing effective maintenance and scheduling repairs when necessary, eventually, it will need to be replaced. Here are reasons you might consider installing a new one before yours stops working entirely:

Saving Money on a More Energy-Efficient Unit

New units are often more efficient than older ones, using less energy to keep water hot.

On top of that, you may decide that you want to switch from a tank-based model to a tankless unit, saving yourself money with a water heater that doesn’t need to use energy to keep a reserve supply of water hot.

Making Space

Tankless water heaters take up much less space than standard units. Some people decide to replace theirs because they realize they don’t need as much hot water as a standard, tank-based model provides.

Instead, they’d rather switch to a tankless one, making space in their home.

Old Age

If your water heater is more than 10 years old, it’s going to start breaking down more often.

This is a good time to look into replacement options. You don’t want to scramble to find a new unit because you didn’t prepare ahead of time.

Frequent Repairs

Your water heater will likely need some degree of repair service over the course of its lifetime.

However, if you’re constantly scheduling repairs, to the point that it’s starting to have a major impact on your budget, replacing it with a new unit may be more cost-effective on the long run.

The Process of Replacing a Hot Water Heater

Replacing your hot water heater takes time, skill and strength. You'll also need various tools and materials to ensure your new water heater fits properly. The general replacement process includes:

  1. Turning off the power and water and gas valves.
  2. Draining the water in the current tank.
  3. Disconnecting the gas and water lines.
  4. Removing the old water heater.
  5. Setting up the new water heater.
  6. Installing the valves
  7. Attaching the pipes.
  8. Connecting the water and gas lines.
  9. Attaching the vent.
  10. Testing the new water heater for leaks.
  11. Refilling the tank.
  12. Turning the power back on.

The extensive process can be overwhelming for individuals who have limited knowledge about water heaters. Hiring an expert plumber for your water heater replacement is the best way to ensure the installation goes smoothly.

Why Water Heater Replacement Is Best Left to the Pros

Installing a hot water heater can be a complicated process.

It can also be dangerous, given the size of the tank, and the fact that you may have to connect the unit to gas valves and plumbing lines.

If you don’t handle the installation correctly, your unit could leak, operate inefficiently, or even damage your home. You’re better off scheduling professional service. Doing so results in peace of mind and long-term savings.
