Let's Talk About Water Heater Replacement

Winter is rolling around for those of us living farther north and one of the best ways to warm up is by taking a nice, warm shower in the morning before starting the day. However, what happens when you turn the hot water knob and only icy water comes out? How do you know if you hot water heater is simply in need of repair or is in need of replacement entirely? Luckily you don't have to figure out the answer all on your own. There are experienced and trusted plumbers around who can inspect your water heater and give you informed advice on how best to proceed. When thinking about water heater replacement there are a few things to consider.

Gas vs. Electric

Many homes who already have other gas appliance in place, such as a stove or a gas furnace, will have a gas water heater installed. Otherwise it is common to see an electric water heater used. When going to replace your water heater take into consideration what is already there -- more likely than not you will be installing the same kind of water heater already present. However, spend some time discussing alternate choices with a team of professional plumbers who can help walk you through the process and answer any questions.

How Much Water?

When replacing a water heater you're most likely going to to find yourself with the same kind of heater that was there before. However, what if you want to get a water heater that holds more water than the one you had before? Are there more people living in your house now compared to before? Do you find yourself doing more laundry or taking more showers? You might consider looking into getting a water heater that has more holding capacity to help accommodate your lifestyle.

Green Friendly?

Many of the newer models of water heaters are much more energy efficient and cost-effective. Instead of falling back on an older model, consider upgrading to a model that is green and will not only save you money, but help save the health of our earth.
