Water Heater Service FAQ
How Do I Know My Water Heater Needs Servicing?
There are several signs that your water heater might need a service, and some are more obvious than others. If you notice a leak anywhere in your water heating system, schedule a service appointment right away. If your hot water starts to run out faster than usual, that could also be a sign that something is wrong with your heater. Another thing to keep an eye out for is an unexplained increase in your energy bill.
Should I Upgrade to a Tankless Water Heater?
Tankless heating systems offer some advantages over a traditional tank water heater, the foremost being greater energy efficiency. They do cost more to install, but you should talk to us about upgrading to a tankless water heater if lowering your long-term energy bills is a priority. They also take up less space, so they can be a smart choice for people living in apartments or smaller houses.
How Often Should a Water Heater Be Replaced?
Gas-powered tank water heaters have the shortest lifespans, usually under ten years, while their electric counterparts typically last 10-15 years. Tankless water heaters are usually good for 15 years or more, sometimes up to 20. If your water heater is nearing or past these respective ages, it might be time to start thinking about a replacement.
How Often Should My Water Heater Be Serviced?
We recommend having your water heater serviced once per year, especially if you have a tank water heater. This allows us to empty the tank of sediment before it has a chance to build up and cause damage.
