Water Heater Replacement

Experiencing issues with your home water heater can be a difficult and frustrating experience. Here at Henco Plumbing, we understand that there is never an ideal situation for things to go wrong. Initially it might be tempting to wait and see if the problem goes away, but your water heating system is pretty complex and has many different moving parts. Staying on top of routine repairs and maintenance can make a big difference in the quality of your home experience in the long run. Some common problems that signal the improper functioning of a residential heater can include:

  • Unusual sounds. A properly working water heater should be relatively unnoticeable. If you hear any persisting noises (especially after a flush) coming from the machine itself, then something is wrong.
  • Old age. Most water tank warranties end after ten years at the most. If your water heater is around or over that time frame, it’s probably time for a replacement
  • No hot water. If there is slight variation in your water being a little too hot or too cold then a quick adjusting of the thermostat will usually do. But if your water temperature is unusually cold, there is a problem.

Gas vs. Electric Water Heaters

Gas water heater

These types of water heaters typically use natural gas as fuel to produce heat that increases the temperature of the water. Gas water heaters aren’t as energy efficient as alternative systems. They are also less costly to maintain in the long run. They are able to reheat a new tank of water much more quickly, which can be ideal for bigger households. Most home owners utilize this version.

Electric water heater

Electric water heaters use what are known as electric resistance coils to heat water. These heating units are known to last a little longer than gas heaters on average. Their main advantage is that they aren’t constantly using energy to keep the water hot in the same way that gas heaters do. But overall they do have a higher maintenance cost associated with their usage.
