Water Heater Replacement

The average person uses between 80 and 100 gallons of water each day. At least some of that water is expected to be delivered warm or hot. Now, imagine that amount of water being used in a household with four or five people. 

That’s a lot of water and a lot of work for your hot water heater!

Eventually, all of that water use is going to cause enough wear and tear on your unit that you’ll need to contact the professionals at Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning for help. 

We are proud to offer area customers expert water heater replacement services, including the disposal of your old unit. 

How Long Does a Water Heater Last?

If your water heater is close to 10 years old, you should probably consider replacing it. If it’s more than 10 years old you should definitely think about that. However, keep in mind that this is just a guideline.

Some water heaters need to be replaced much sooner than others. This can be the case if the water heater happens to not be very well made. Households that put a lot of demand on their water heaters should also expect to replace them more often.

On the other hand, if you have regular maintenance done to your water heater and don’t use excessive amounts of hot water your unit may last longer than average. 

Still, water heater replacement is unavoidable. Eventually, every homeowner has to deal with it. 

Signs of Water Heater Trouble

Fortunately, there are signs you can look for that let you know your water heater is in trouble. When you start to see the following symptoms, it’s probably time to call us for professional water heater replacement services.

Low Water Temps

The water coming out of your tap isn’t exactly cold, but it’s not as hot as it should be. This is a telltale sign that your water heater is losing its ability to heat water like it once could.

Slow Reheating

It’s normal for a standard hot water heater to run out when the water demand is high. However, it should recover quickly and you should have hot water again in a short period of time. 

If not, there could be trouble with your thermostat or another component. This calls for repair, and in some cases, you are better off simply allowing us to replace your water heater with a new model.

Leaks

Many of our customers call us for water heater replacement services when they notice their unit is leaking. 

When water heats inside of a hot water heater, pressure builds up. This can cause leaks in the pipes that connect to the water heater, the connections, and the water heater itself. 

Be aware that these leaks can come on quickly. If they are severe, the flooding can damage carpets and flooring.

Strange Noises

Ideally, you should never hear anything from your water heater. However, you may hear gurgling, banging, hissing, or other noises that are often caused by sediment or limescale in your hot water heater. 

If you hear a boiling or bubbling sound, that indicates a dangerous problem. Your water heater may be overheating, and the pressure building up could be very hazardous.

Not Enough Capacity 

You may decide to replace your water heater simply because it no longer meets your needs. For example, a low-capacity hot water heater may no longer work for a growing family. 

Also, some homeowners decide to switch out electric water heaters for gas or vice versa. No matter what your reason, we can help you select the perfect water heater for your home.

Water Heater Options

Some water heater problems can be repaired, but water heater replacement is often the way to go. When it’s time to order a new water heater, the professional team at Sirius Plumbing and Air Conditioning can help. 

There are so many options available today that weren’t around even a few years ago. For example, a tankless water heater means you get unlimited hot water with no wait. If your family is growing, this could be the perfect time to look at a larger hot water heater. 

And you’d be surprised at how energy-efficient newer models can be!

How Long Does Water Heater Replacement Take?

You will need a skilled plumber to install a new water heater, especially if there are gas lines to connect as well. Fortunately, our experienced team members have successfully completed many water heater replacement calls. They can usually do the installation in just a couple of hours.

Water Heater Replacement You Can Trust

If you are ready to upgrade to a better hot water heater, we can help. One of our technicians will come to your home, disconnect your old hot water heater, then replace it with the new one that you have selected. We can even dispose of your old hot water heater for you.

Gas Water Heaters

When it comes to selecting the right water heater for your home our team of experts can help you understand the pros and cons of various units. One of the most commonly used water heaters is the standard gas water heater. This type of water heater uses natural gas to heat water within the tank, giving homeowners a hot water supply that is ready to use instantly.

Gas water heaters are great at keeping water hot and ready to use when you need it, with on-demand heat and water that reheats quickly once depleted. This makes gas water heaters a popular option for those who go through a lot of hot water within their homes, such as households with multiple family members who need to get through the shower in the mornings.

More often than not, gas water heaters are quick and easy to install. Most homes come with natural gas lines that make the setup and installation of a gas water heater quick and easy. This means that our plumbers can get your new water heater up and running in no time, allowing you to get back to enjoying warm showers and hot baths quicker.

The added benefit to gas water heaters is that they are typically more cost and energy-efficient than their electric counterparts. Generally, gas water heaters are capable of running at about ⅓ the cost of an electric water heater. This helps lower energy bills and saves you money on your monthly bill when you opt for a gas water heater.

Electric Water Heaters

Electric water heaters have grown in popularity over the years, with the advances in modern technology and equipment electric water heaters have slowly been replacing standard gas water heaters. Despite the advances in technology, however, electric water heaters have their pros and cons just like their gas counterparts, and may not be the right choice for every household.

One of the pros when it comes to electric water heaters is the fact that they can run on renewable energy. This makes them extremely environmentally friendly and efficient, causing less impact on the environment.

Electric water heaters are also extremely easy and simple to operate. Simply flip a switch to start and wait for your water to heat. With this simplicity, however, comes the downside of longer heating times. When compared to gas water heaters, electric ones take more time to heat water once it has been depleted. This makes them less ideal for households that rely heavily on a constant flow of hot water, or for those who need a quick turnaround once the tank has been emptied.

When it comes to maintaining your water heater, you’ll find that electric heaters require less attention and maintenance than gas heaters. This is because you won’t have to worry about maintaining a gas line connection to the heater itself or worry about venting combustion gasses from your home. This makes the upkeep and maintenance of an electric water heater as simple as flushing the tank system at least once per year to avoid mineral deposits at the bottom of the tank.
